We gave ourselves a present for Christmas.
We figured we might find a touch of inspiration here and there, or perhaps a reminder of something we’d already wanted to create.
Granted, a large part of it is that a random box full of geeky things that blesses your mailbox once a month… is cool.
Especially since having ‘real mail,’ is a neat thing even when it isn’t a box of geekery.
Since we’ve been so busy lately, we only got around to the photos yesterday.
This was the full December crate:
One of the amusing things about Loot Crate is how neat the boxes are. I haven’t decided what we’re going to do with them yet, but I know we will find a use. (Maybe they can become containers for knitting needles or dice or miniatures or something….)
Our best of the December Loot Crate:
Since we finally took the photos, there will be comic book reading on my day off this week. It has been quite some time since I’ve had a new one.
Mister Tea and I are still in talks about the Groot socks. I fear they are going to turn out to be too large for me… Sadness. However, I have a far larger collection of odd socks, so he deserves a pair. (My fingers are still crossed that my size guesstimation will be wrong.)
January brought us this box, on a day we sorely needed a happy mail:
Calling it Rewind was right! I hadn’t thought about Voltron in years, but the shirt brought many hours spent watching it right back. (Still think the Pink Lion was annoying, but at least they had a female….) Star Wars, Voltron, reminders of the first days of video gaming… It was kinda perfect. It also added a second comic to my “yay I get to read new comics” pile.
These were our best of:
So, yes, LootCrate. A bit of whee in the mailbox every month.
Definitely worth it, so far.
