Some of our yummy treats: Tim Tams biscuits, Mint Slice biscuits, Caramello Koala's, Milo

Send me an e mail of how much you want to spend (in US dollars) and what sort of stuff you're interested in (ie: food/candy flavours you like, suvineers etc) and i'll start getting stuff together for you. Oh and what sort of music do you like? ...i'll burn a bunch of Aussie band CD's too :o)

My blog profile is http://22november2008.blogspot.com (I'm new to that site so you have a better chance at finding me at www.myspace.com/imsarajean and there is a lot more info about me there. But the blogspot one has my gimmeyourstuff info. I also love baking and have a two year old so would love to trade recipes and child educational stuff. Oh and LOVE the t-shirt idea. I am up for surprise packages too so just get back to me and let me know if you wanna swap!
