Mail Swap: The Nerdy Girlie

If you have been reading my blog for a while, you will know I adore snail mail. G doesn’t really understand how excited I get about post. Maybe it’s a girl thing…

Anyway, my Twitter pal Megan and I decided to do a mail swap as she adores all things England and I love receiving things from North America. Their washi tape is so much better!

Megan writes her blog The Nerdy Girlie from sunny San Diego, so the first item I saw when I opened her package was a magazine all about her city. I must admit, I’m a little jealous of the sunny weather they have all year round, but I’m looking forward to reading it.

We both sent tea – duh we are bloggers, of course we sent tea. With a few bad migraines lately, I could do with a cup of this soothing tea.

Of course you can’t do a mail swap without postcards! I really want a burger now…..


Megan knows I love stationery, so she found me these adorable cat thank you cards and washi tape! The heart one is already in my FiloFax for V day. The chocolates did not last long. They were from a local store in Megan’s neighbourhood.


You can see what I sent Megan right here. She is a huge Dr Who fan so I had a great time shopping in the comic book store for her. There was SO much I could have bought Megan, she is the easiest person to buy for!

Thank you Megan for my wonderful parcel! I adore everything and couldn’t contain my squeals when the postie arrived with the package. He laughed at my post excitement.

You can see other mail swap posts on my blog here and see a mail swap project that Vivid Please are running here (sign up closes 16 February). Also, I was awarded star of the month for the #PostCircle project run by Miss Beatrix! I can’t quite believe it, I’ve never been a star of anything. I might have to make a paper crown and have it rain envelope confetti. Oh yes, it’s totally gone to my head.

I’m signing off until Monday now, but tomorrow’s post is the next guest DIY blogger for my Share The Love month. It is a good ‘un and I’m pretty excited!

Have you entered my giveaway yet?! Also, I’ve had some updates on the technical side of the blog, so if you were following via a WordPress reader, you will only see new posts. You can sign up to my blog by email in the right hand column in case you aren’t sure how to follow.
