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 exchange?

Geek Girl Bloggers Card Swap

The cards I received were both wonderful and varied. I loved that I got a mix of both traditional Christmas, geeky, and handmade. So great!

I have to say, I about died of laughter from this card from Bree over at Breezeeweezee Cosplay. Merry Chris-mas INDEED! Even better, my partner’s name is Chris and he got a massive kick out of this card. Just perfect for me!

For the Funko Swap, we each got matched up with a partner and provided a list of 5 Funkos we’d been lusting after. My swap buddy Kaitlin from Vivacious Hobo nailed it, and snagged the Funko I was wanting most!

THE ALIEN QUEEN!!!

Geek Girl Blogger Funko Swap Alien Queen

Isn’t she glorious?! I love her so much. She is currently presiding over my main Funko shelf, as is appropriate for the head xenomorph.

Thank you so much Kaitlin for my new POP, I absolutely love it!

 

  • What a fun swap!

    • Kay

      Agreed! 🙂

  • Sonya

    Okay, I am dying over that Chris-mas card! And also your Funkos–so many good ones in it! I didn’t send out any Christmas cards this year, and I keep wishing I had. Next year, though. I’ll just have to start planning early.

    • Kay

      Thanks! And I’d like to plan my cards a little earlier this year too….my cards didn’t even come in until halfway through December this year. Whoops!

  • Oh man, she is AWESOME!!!! I’ve been wanting to snag the gold Smaug from the Hobbit from Amazon and now that I see how awesome your giant Funko looks with the rest, I’m definitely going to have to get him!

      Yessss the giant ones are so much fun! The gold Smaug is a great one (we don’t have him yet, but I’ve been tempted!)

  • The Alien Queen is so cool. I have Ripley (she was a must-buy), but I haven’t added the Queen to my collection yet. I do hope Funko makes more Alien(s) Pops with the new movie coming out. They just look so neat!

    • Kay

      Agreed! I would love for them to make a Ripley-in-the-mech Funko, I think that would be such a great companion to the queen.

      I’m quite excited for the new movie!

  • Your shelf is full of awesome, omg. 😀

    • Kay

      Thank you! 😀

  • Kaitlin Michelle

    Yay! Im glad you like it!

    • Kay

      I love it!!

  • Mariah Kaercher

    The Alien is awesome! I think I may participate in the card swap next year.

    • Kay

      I hope you do! Snail mail is such a day brightener. 🙂
