One thing I love about penpalling, is making some great connections with people. I especially love creating new geeky friendships, like the one I have with Shannon! 🙂
Awhile back, we decided to do a mail swap. Since we have been writing to each other for awhile, I knew quickly that she’s good people, and I could trust her. And since she trusted me, we knew we wouldn’t get burned.
We are both big geeks and went with a fandom themed swap, and set the limit at $25. Which was hard since I wanted to buy her ALL THE THINGS.
She loved what I sent, and today I received her swap! Which made me squeeeeeee! I am very pumped and love all that she sent! 🙂
The first thing I opened were these lil beauties.
And like the kid that I am, it didn’t take long for me to put on a light show.
I pretty much mini freaked when I opened the next bit.
It’s a bit hard to tell in this pic, but those are Batman and Superman earrings. (Which might just end up being the earrings I wear next year for our big fat geek wedding!!! 😀 ) Also, Superman deco tape, which will be put to use this weekend when I sit to write some letters.
And the spoiling continues. I am in love with these bookmarks and necklace from GoT. I am thinking Khal Drogo needs to go in my next book.
Thor’s hammer is about to go onto my key chain, next to my mini Jon Snow. And I giggled when I opened these earrings. I have been eyeing them up for awhile!! 😛
I am beyond happy with my swap and thrilled she loved hers as well. I also got a lovely letter as well, which I plan to reply to on the weekend. (As well as a couple of other letters I need to get to! Don’t worry peeps, I didn’t for get you! ^_^ )
After a very long day and a couple of more ahead of me, coming home to this package on my table was a great pick me up. 🙂 Thank you again, Shannon!!!!! xoxoxo
