Chocolate Mailart Exchange

I took part in a Mailart exchange in a Yahoo group. The theme was chocolate, yummy! I stithed a hot chocolate MA to Connie to Germany. The pictures are from the Yahoo group, taken by Connie. I took some photos but they were out of focus so luckily Connie had a better aim. :) Our post office didn't have any chocolate stamps but I found these funny creatures and it looks like they are sailing in a chocolate river. :) I put two hot chocolate bars and scissors inside the MA.

I received a beautiful MA from Paulie from Netherlands. Pastries, cupcakes, chocolate! What a delicious MA! Thank you Paulie!
