I decided to join a fun little project through Twitter called The Secret Sister Project, which runs for a six month period (this one is August through January) and is meant to bring a little joy and cheer to strangers accepted into the program and secretly paired up. You can check out more details here. It’s been so much fun to plan little care and gift packages and writing back and forth on real paper, so I decided to share how awesome my Secret Sister is this round! I’d share the packages I’ve put together, but then my secret sis would totally figure out it was me 🙂
For the first month, which was August, my secret sister put together some great little fun things with no theme. Gel pens, positive stickers, Legacies signed by Rosemary Edghill, and the Valerian soundtrack!! Not to mention that steampunk octopus art notecard created by Jessica Douglas 🙂 On point and amazing! We have so much in common it turns out and I’m loving our new friendship.
So for this month, I received a wonderfully themed box: Classic Redux. Another glorious art piece from Jessica Douglas, goldfish (rainbow), Monster High stickers and a mini (children of classic monsters), Prince of Egypt (musical retelling of Moses), and Indexing by Seanan McGuire, who I’m so excited to meet at the end of next week!! And the book is a fairy tale retelling in an urban setting as a police procedural. Loved it (expect my review very soon)!
I’m so impressed with my sister’s attention to details and love exchanging letters in between packages. We have so much to talk about that it’s a great well to relieve stress and spread a little bit of fun and fandom. I can’t help but want to do little things for my awesome sister, so I’ve sent a few signed bookplates her direction and will probably continue to do fun things like that for the rest of this session. Love this program so much!!
