Xena was one of the first heroines that we really admired and we wanted to honor her by capturing her essence in a necklace.
@thegorgonist and @juniperandivydesigns brought our vision to life PERFECTLY and we are absolutely in love with this piece.
Who were your first female role models? @bookhoarderproblems
Saturday mood: chill out and write some to-do lists!
I love having a @passionplanner and also bullet-journaling.
How do you stay organized?
We had a blast bringing Merlin back in our MEDIEVAL MAYHEM box, especially because it was the fandom that brought the twoof us together! We asked artist Winnie Gong (@bossibly) to create a piece that captured the campy vibes of the show, and she rocked it!
You can grab our MEDIEVAL MAYHEM box now, through our shop!

Our Simply Marvelous box is on sale in our shop! If you don't know what's in it, just take a look at the shop listing!
Did you see the Avengers: Infinity War trailer?? I got chills. What was your favorite trailer moment? What do you want to see happen in the movie?
I love watching Peter Parker fanboy every hero he meets. Also, I can't wait for Shuri to just roast everyone. @melodyltang
Who has heard the casting news for the BBC's adaptation of the His Dark Materials series??? Lin Manuel Miranda as Lee Scoresby and Dafne Keen (who I adored in Logan) as Lyra Silvertongue!!!! This is my all-time favorite series and I can't wait already!
We created an alethiometer necklace with the gorgeous design from @hannahhitchmanart (she also has a pin with this and has some designs for the Old Kingdom series coming soon...!) AND! We have a few alethiometers listed on the shop!

Our subscribers got an ARC of Tess of the Road before its release date in our Medieval Mayhem box!
Did you read it yet? What did you think?
Tess of the Road follows the life of a young woman who is discarded by society and embarks on both an arduous quest for a legendary world serpent and an introspective journey toward self-acceptance. It was heartbreaking to follow Tess' journey but ultimately satisfying.
Thank you @threadedpages for the gorgeous photo!

We knew we wanted a quote from Harry Potter in our October WITCH, PLEASE box, and we played around with a few from Ginny, Luna, McGonagall, and Hermione before ultimately settling on this badass one.
If you missed out on October, we have 3 or 4 extras listed at myfanmail.com/shop!

February MEDIEVAL MAYHEM Sneak Peek #3:
Last October, we had the pleasure of running into @thegorgonist at @geekgirlcon. We were instantly smitten with her incredible attention to detail and knew we HAD to find a way to include her designs in a box - a few weeks ago, we had a snafu with a manufacturer, and were worried we wouldn't be able to bring this particular piece to fruition.
Enter the team at @juniperandivydesigns - they saved our butts and also helped us bring our item to life.
Long story short: if you love a certain badass warrior woman whose name might be XENA: you might want to hurry up and grab this box.
Subscribe at myfanmail.com and make sure to give our amazing collaborators a follow!
February MEDIEVAL MAYHEM Box Sneak Peek #2:
We are excited to announce that, in addition to an ARC of "Tess of the Road" by Rachel Hartman every February box, you will also be receiving a gorgeous set of nail wraps from @espionage_cosmetics!
We worked with sooo many awesome collaborators and creators this month to bring you a box that will take you back to knights, warrior princesses, magicians, dragons and more. Grab your February box NOW!
(image above is an example!)
Did you see the new Jessica Jones trailer?? I just want her to be happy (and with Luke Cage), but I'm excited to find out more about her past. Also, I'm dying to see Trish Walker as Hellcat!
This shot of @varshavijayan 's gorgeous art print from our December Simply Marvelous box was taken by @thegeekyyogi! With a guest appearance by @jordandenenyc!
We hope you are getting good use out of your Thor: Ragnorak tote bag!
I just rewatched Thor: Ragnorak and it's just as hilarious the second time around.
I was especially overjoyed to see Valkyrie in action. She was a strong female character, but also interesting and funny and flawed. She never fell into the usual stereotypical trappings of female characters. I'm so used to seeing women in film who are so obviously more experienced and qualified than the protagonist, but still manage to become the damsel in distress.
Hey Sabrina, hungry? Salem the cat is one of those iconic characters who you can never forget!
Sabrina the Teenage Witch is getting a reboot, thanks to Riverdale, and I'm game to give it a shot. In the meantime, I'll be watching reruns of Melissa Joan Hart!

Will never be over this adorable Jiji photoshoot that @madamescozycorner did for our October box!
Has anyone else felt like this week has been extra long somehow? I'm looking forward to resting a bit and making snacks for the Super Bowl on Sunday!
Just as an fyi, we will be doing a massive sale this month of all sorts of past items and mini-bundles - it's taken us a while to sort through all our backstock, but we've unearthed some items we think you all will love to get your hands on!
