This month I participated in a fabulous Valentine’s Day card swap and gift exchange with the lovely ladies in the Geek Girl Blogger’s group! It was actually the first card swap or gift exchange I’ve ever participated in (stupid necessary budgeting…) but I definitely want to do more in the future. Who doesn’t love some snail mail?
I got so many wonderful cards, from so many different places! I love to save stamps, so that was like an added bonus with the cards.
My secret gifter was Jessica from The Nifty Nerd, and she seriously nailed my gift! Eeeeeeeee Harry Potter in his Quidditch uniform!!!!!
He is actually the HP Funko I wanted most and I did a little happy dance right in my kitchen when I opened him up! He takes the center spot of our HP collection on the nerd shelves.
Also included was this excellent Darth Vader card (which my hubs also got quite a kick out of when I showed him) and a Dove Milk Chocolate bar I completely devoured before photographing.(#sorrynotsorry) I freaking adore Dove milk chocolate…so smooth and rich. So thank you so much Jessica, I loved my gifts!
For my end of the card swap, I decided to make my cards. I already had blank cards kicking about so I just drew up some geek themed cards after polling the ladies about their favorite fandoms!
I think the Supernatural ones are my faves. Bobby’s and Castiel’s have ‘Idjit’ and ‘Assbutt’ written inside in a heart haha! I had a mini heart attack after mailing them wondering if anyone would be offended, but hopefully everyone knows it’s in good humor and fandom love. I promise, I don’t think anyone who received these cards is actually an idjit or an assbutt. 😀
Have you participated in an exchange before? What did you think?
