Geek Girl Bloggers Card Exchange & Funko Swap!

Being a part of online communities and connecting with fellow like-minded geeky women is one of my favorite parts of having a blog. And in my opinion, the ladies in the Geek Girl Bloggers group are the creme de la creme. Founded by Pepi (who also designed the super cute post header!), the Geek Girl Bloggers group is a fabulous place to find friendship, support, camaraderie, and an all around great group of women. Often times throughout the year, the Geek Girl Bloggers hold swaps for different things, and this December I joined in with both the Card Swap and the Funko Swap! Who can resist a little snail mail...

DIY Triforce Tree Topper

It’s time for another geeky holiday DIY! As I mentioned in my DIY Geek Ornament post, we have a geek theme for our Christmas tree. For awhile, we had a traditional star at the top; a light up one selected by our daughter. But once that stopped working last year, I wanted a new topper. I wanted something geeky, but also something gold and shiny to invoke that shiny Christmas star feeling. I immediately thought of the Triforce! As usual with my DIYs, I wanted this project to be relatively simple and relatively cheap. It’s definitely more time and supply intensive than the DIY ornaments, but still pretty simple and...

DIY Geek Ornaments

Last Christmas, my partner and I came to a decision about our Christmas tree decorations. We had such a random mix of ornaments – ornaments given to us, ornaments we purchased ourselves, ornaments our daughter made. No cohesion. Plus, we had so many they didn’t all fit on the tree.So we decided to pick a theme for our tree decor and stick to it. Since our living room (where the tree goes) decor is a balance of family photos and geeky collectibles/art, we decided the tree should match. Thus, our geek family tree theme was born. We had only one problem – plenty of family oriented ornaments, but a shortage...

Family Costume Reveal!

Halloween this year was such a success! As I mentioned in quite a few posts, this was the first year we did a family costume. Our daughter picked the theme, and she went with Pokemon! My partner was Ash, I was Serena, and she was Pikachu! Figured I’d post a reference pic in case you weren’t familiar with Pokemon XY. And of course, we modified our costumes for Halloween in New Hampshire which is COLD. It was 38 degrees for trick or treating. BRRRRRR. (Oh, and Serena isn’t wearing her usual chunky white sunglasses on her hat in this pic, but she normally has them!) While these costumes were fun...

Family Costume Planning

For the first year since my little was born, we are finally putting together a family costume for Halloween! Honestly, I don’t know why we waited so long. I think a lot of is basically poor planning; we’d always think of it WAY too late and never pull anything together. Plus, now that the kiddo is 5 she is old enough to have a lot of interest and input in what we dress up as. We let her take the reins for theme picking and she has (unsurprisingly) picked Pokemon! Both my partner and I are actually pretty thrilled about it being our first family costume attempt. Currently, my kiddo’s...

DIY Funko Shelves From Collector Corps Boxes

Holy crap has it been ages since I’ve written about any Funko! It’s partially because my blogging schedule fell to pieces over the summer, and partially because there hasn’t been much for me to talk about in terms of my Funko. BUT! As I was putting together my new art area (post coming soon) I had brilliant idea (if I do say so myself 😉 ) for new Funko shelves since the ones we had were entirely full. Voila! Marvel Collector Corps boxes as DIY Funko shelves! I’ve saved every single Collector Corps box that we have received (we skipped two different boxes for lack of interest) because the art...
