Fan mail Friday

Standard

I am going to *try* and post any fan mail successes on Friday’s. That doesn’t mean I won’t get excited mid week if I get something REALLY good and share it early. πŸ˜‰

These came the other day. I sent two 4×6 photos to Kellan Lutz, and he signed them both! πŸ™‚

kellen lutz

Kellan in Hercules.

Kellan in one of my fave movie series, The Expndables. I loved him in the third movie.

I totally forgot to post these. I got these in the mail last week. I love Craig Parker.

And we can’t forget the great acting he did in Lord of The Rings.

Author Autograph Success!!!!

Standard

I have been writing fan mail to actors for at least a year and a half now. And I have gotten some great replies.Β Once in a while Mr. C is able to find an address for one of my favorite authors.

When we first started printing off photos to send, he started making custom cards. One of these was sent to author Jodi Picoult and I was stoked to get that back signed by her.

Today I went to the mailbox, and there was an envelope for me. I knew it was an auto since it was one of the SASE* I included in a letter, but I had no idea who. I could tell it was an older one. One of the first letters I had written.

I was a very happy chick when I opened it.

author auto charlaine

Charlaine Harris!

I got hooked on the Sookie Stackhouse books years and years ago. WAY before True Blood ever hit the small screen. I was hooked on them and ate up every book that was out. When I got caught up, I kept an eye out for release dates. I would buy the hardcover, because I was way too impatient to wait until it was printed in soft cover.

So when we started writing fan mail, she was one on my list. I love her novels and I had to write her. So I was thrilled today to get this. It took 418 days to get here. It was worth the wait!!! πŸ™‚

Fan Mail!

Standard

This week I was happy to find an autograph success in my mail box. I was thrilled when I opened it to see what/who I got.

keifer 1

Kiefer Sutherland as David in The Lost Boys.

I am a big fan of Kiefer Sutherland. I honestly could never get into watching ’24’, but I love so much of his other work. And he does an amazing job of playing the bad guy.

keifer 2

Kiefer in Stand By Me.

‘The Lost Boys’ and ‘Stand By Me’ are two of my all time favorite movies. So I decided to send him pics from these two movies. I am thrilled that he signed them for me.

Between sending this out and coming back, it took just over 40 days, so not too bad at all!!!

Newest Autographs

Standard

I’d just like to start off by saying Happy Thanksgiving to my fellow Canucks. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend with family and get properly stuffed like our turkeys. πŸ™‚

We’ve been having a relaxed day. Mister C isn’t feeling the best. I went on a beautiful fall walk and stopped off at Tim’s for a pumpkin spiced donut. Yum!!!

So since he is sleeping off his cold this evening, I thought I’d pop on here.

I had two great successes this week.

coulson

Clark Gregg, aka Phil Coulson.

If you are a big fan of S.H.I.E.L.D, then you know who this guy is. Agent Phil Coulson is my favorite character on that show and I am stoked that he signed the photo I sent. (Mister is jealous since he’s yet to get his back).

I also got this one, on Friday.

finch

Micheal Emerson as Harold Finch on Person of Interest.

Mister and I have been a huge fan of this show since day one. So I was pretty happy to get this autograph.

I best go check on the future hubby, and maybe watch a scary movie! πŸ™‚

Fan Mail: Recent Successes!!!

Standard

With everything that has been going on lately, I have totally forgotten about my fan mail.

Back in July, Mister and I decided that we would make August our best writing month yet. Last year in July, we wrote 67 letters in one month. I said we needed to beat that! (Chalk that ambition up to the sun finally emerging and me getting an overdose of vitamin D, lol.)

So, in August we ended up writing 69 letters between us. I think he wrote more then me BUT I wrote a huge chunk. I would come home from work after a busy day, tired, and he would ask “So, who are you writing tonight?” My reply was zombie-like with an “uuughhhgg”.

However, the work paid off! We have already gotten successes from our August writing, and others from older letters. i have been pretty pumped with my new autographs!

auto flash

Grant from ‘The Flash’.

I also wrote to another cast member from ‘The Flash’. Robbie Amell was awesome enough to sign my pic!

auto robbie

“FireStorm”

I have gotten hooked on ‘Once Upon A Time’. I did watch season one and then for some reason wasn’t able to watch much of season two and nothing from then on. However I am quickly catching up and writing to some of the cast!

auto charming

Josh Dallas plays David/Prince Charming.

I sent two pics to him and he signed both! πŸ™‚

auto 1

I was stoked to get this cast member the other day!!!

auto 2

I loved her on ‘House’ and now I love her as ‘Emma Swan’.

I also wrote to a couple of classy ladies. Women I have watched in re-runs when I was a kid. I loved them then and I love them now.

auto 3

Carol Burnett.

auto 4

Carol in one of her famous skits.

And the other classy and sassy lady is….

betty white

Betty White!!!

I still love her as Rose on ‘The Golden Girls’.

Golden Girl re-runs are the best πŸ˜€

I just had to write to these guys.

auto 5

Aaron Eckhart. I have loved him in so many roles over the years.

auto 6

Tim Allen!!!

And not to mention this awesome guy…

auto 8

John Travolta!!!

When you write to John Travolta, he will send you an extra autographed pic! Here it is:

auto 7

The extra pic he sent. So cool!

I also wrote to some kick ass ladies. This autograph had me “squeeeeeeeeing” all the way out of the post office. One of my all time fave actresses!

auto melissa

Melissa McCarthy in ‘The Heat’ (which was frickin hilarious!)

My fave female vampire…

auto pam

Kristen Bauer Van Straten as ‘Pam’ in True Blood’.

And last but not least, a fab actress who I loved in ‘Chuck’ as well as Dexter.

auto

Yvonne Strahovski.

Wow! I didn’t realize how many I had come in since the last autographs I posted.

I love writing fan mail. And I love the thrill when I get an autograph in the mail. There are the odd ‘return to sender’ for various reasons, such as an outdated address, but that kind of things is rare in our mailbox (luckily!).

Until next time, happy writing! πŸ™‚ (Or whatever makes your geek heart happy!)

My Newest Geek Obsession

Standard

I have many collections. From autographs and buttons, to books, bookmarks and artwork, many a thing grabs my attention.

And when something new takes hold, look out. When I discovered Smashbooks, I was at the craft store every chance I had buying Smashbooks and various supplies.

Recently Mr. C was talking to someone, and he learned about wardrobe cards. I had heard of them before but didn’t really pay attention. Kind of in one ear and out the other. But now things have changed.

What are wardrobe cards?

Well, I will show you!

wardrobe card 1

Sons Of Anarchy wardrobe card, featuring Charlie Hunnam as Jax Teller.

Wardrobe cards have a small piece of fabric from something an actor wore. In this case, my card has a piece of hoodie that Charlie wore in S.O.A. On the back of the card, it states which episode he wore it in. (For you sports fans, you can also get cards with jersey’s as well as game used bats).

A couple of weeks ago I was having a bit of a rough patch. Mr. C wanted to cheer me up. So he bought me this as well as two other cards.

thor card

Thor. *heart eyes emoji*

He also got me this card, featuring a piece of shirt that Chris Hemsworth wore in Thor. And my third card to start my collection is something John Schneider wore in Smallville.

john card

Gotta love the flannel πŸ˜‰

So this is a start to my newest addiction. No, I won’t be buying a ton of them in the next little while. (If only!) But I will be buying the odd one and adding some to my Christmas wish list. πŸ™‚

Mr. C has been lucky. He found some sports ones for cheap and a guy he talks to online about cards is giving him about 10 baseball ones. While they are not my thing I think they are very cool and it is nice of this guy to share some of his collection.

So, what about you? Any of you discover a new geeky love?

My Newest (and most favorite!) Star Wars Item

Standard

It’s been a little hectic here in my part of the world. Work has been very busy (now I can buy groceries- yay! πŸ˜‰ ) and I have little time to myself. At the end of the day I am too tired to do very much, so projects, letters and reading have gone to the side for now.

I am however, slowly getting some things done for the wedding next year. So far there’s zombies, storm troopers, and super heroes incorporated.

I have been able to write the occasional piece of fan mail. A few weeks ago I wrote to one of my favorite kick ass women.

carrie fisher

Princess Leia. Bam!

When I wrote to Carrie Fisher, I had no idea if I would get a response and I figured it I did it would take a long time. But just over twenty days later I got this in the mail, so I am pretty stoked.

It’s almost TGIF, and I am celebrating a bit early. I am heading out for some good pub food with Mr. C and some friends shortly. Then I plan to sleep, work tomorrow. and sleep a part of my weekend away.

I hope your summer is going great and you are having lots of fun! πŸ™‚
