*GENERAL EXCHANGE GUIDELINES*
1.  You must have been active on the forums for at least 6 months OR have 1,000 posts.  If you've been here a while you're more likely to send out your package.  

2.  Don't flake on your partner, just like you wouldn't want your partner to flake on you.  If you're unsure whether you'll have time/money to get a package together, don't sign up.

3.  Bring it!  Don't send out something crappy!

4.  Homemade and/or store bought goodies are welcome.

5. This is an ALL VEGAN exchange.

My favourite candy/treat is :  chocolate with either PB, almonds or coconut in it.  Plain works too!  Just not a fan of it with fruit mixed in

My favourite colour is :  olive green, purple, black and teal.

My favourite cookie is:  It's a toss up between chocolate chip, lemon poppy seed or coconut macaroon

I am allergic to and/or hate these flavours:  allergic to garlic, HATE bananas

I really enjoy these flavours:
 coconut, pineapple, mango, chocolate...pretty much anything but curry and bananas

Items/ingredients I wish I could find in my area but can't:
I can pretty much find anything I can think of.  So my gifter could surprise me with something regional from their area and that would be awesome!!

Items/ingredients I have available locally which others might be interested in:  Vegan queso by Food for Lovers in Austin, TX is the only thing I can think of.  I don't think it's available nationally yet.

Cookbooks I don't own but would like to:  Vegan Pie in the Sky.  I've got TONS of cookbooks.

I really enjoy these flavours: I just want someone to be creative and have fun. I'm easy to please. If you're going to bake me stuff, make me your favorite things.  I love spicy stuff, all sweets, chocolate, coconut, nuts, caramel, fruit, etc.

oh yeah, you should feel totally free to say you don't want/need/use any cookbooks - I just know it's something that comes up often so thought it might be helpful to have that question in there...

yo amy, if you get one of the priority mail flat rate boxes, it'll be less than $60, at least to NZ (where I shipped) was $43 for such a box.

Due to the move from Oregon and whatnot, I need to back out of this particular gift exchange. I thought I had enough cash to spare but I can't do it with all the other shit in which I'm swimming. I'm so so sorry, ladies and gents. I will do another exchange with you all very soon. Promise.

HELL YES BRING THIS ON!!!!!!!!!!!

My favourite candy/treat is : chocolate or peanut butter (I am going through a bit of a peanut butter addiction at the moment)

My favourite colour is : hmmm, let me think PURPLE!!!

My favourite cookie is: any really.  I have a love of choc chip cookies, lemony cookies (biscuits to non-US people ;) ), coconut, peanut butter, any really.

I am allergic to and/or hate these flavours: if it's vegan, I'll try it.  I don't really hate anything as far as I'm aware.

I really enjoy these flavours: peanut butter, chocolate, coconut, savoury flavours, Indian spices, Chinese foods, Mexican foods, and otherss I can't think of.  Basically I'm not too fussy and like trying new things too.

Items/ingredients I wish I could find in my area but can't: chili powder -as in the US chili powder that is a mix of spices (chili powder to me is just ground hot chilies), up until recently I would have said chipotles in adobo but now we (me and oww) have bought a 3kg tin!!

Items/ingredients I have available locally which others might be interested in: barky nooch.  I have access to some really cool Chinese supermarkets that sell weird funky stuff and some good Indian shops that have good spices, but nothing too unusual.

Cookbooks I don't own but would like to:  none that spring out that much, and I haven't really made the most of all of mine....but if there's a cook book that my sender loves that I don't own I wouldn't say no ;)
I own:
Vegan Brunch
vegan with a Vengance
Veganomicon
Viva Vegan
Vegan Cooking for One
The Ultimate Uncheese Cookbook
Vegan Cooking for Everyone
La Dolce Vegan
Vegan on the Cheap
Vegan Diner

*important!*
I am prepared to ship internationally  -  yes or no
yes!!

edit:  Depending on when we decide to have the deadline, I may need to ship out late and receive my gift late - I am moving house the weekend around the 28th of this month and would probably want to organise/post after this as I'll probably be quite busy beforehand.  It would also be better to get my gift sent to the new place which may mean a delay in my person sending to me.
If that's not ok, then I'll have to step out.

It's all good, Josh.  Know your limits before people are assigned.  I only participate occasionally because of my usual skint-ness.
