My Chocolate Arrived!


I received a wonderful package!  The fine folks at Derry Church Artisan Chocolates sent me 15 delectable pieces of chocolate.  This chocolate is nothing short of amazing!  What a lucky lady I am to win such a wonderful giveaway.  Along with the chocolate was a nice note from the Pastry Chef Eric Cayton,.... he's as nice as his chocolates. 

Here's the scoop on the giveaway I won.  I learned about the giveaway from Sew Cal Gal on her blog.  There is an association of artisans and crafts people in Pennsylvania called the Pennsylvania Guild of Craftsmen.  The guild helps its members with promotion and maintains a website to showcase their work.. This particular giveaway was hosted by Derry Church Chocolates (one of the members) but the idea was to showcase the association.  Check out their blog and their website.  They're full of wonderful things made by the wonderful artisans in Pennsylvania.  I had fun looking around the blog because I was raised in PA and know a lot of the locations mentioned.

This has been a delightful experience.  Not only did I win chocolate, but I have enjoyed some nice email exchanges and viewed some great new websites.  Lucky ME!

I'm not going to leave a comment because I don't like chocolate much...Well maybe a little bit...sometimes. Oh go on then, now I'm drooling with the thought...I can smell them and almost taste them...maybe you could send me the wrapper...please....

That's it, just rub it in that you are enjoying the amazing flavors of CHOCOLATE while the rest of us site here in front of our screens with our tongues hanging to the ground and our keyboards getting wetter by the minute just looking at these delicate little treasures. Who knows somewhere out there is a women having a Chocolate attack and is licking her screen trying to get just a little taste. I am glad that someone as nice as you were the winner, enjoy your treat. I am heading to the site, I am also a PA girl
