How many gift exchange parties have you been to this season already? Too many? I’ve been to several and I’m all gift exchanged out!
So now I introduce to you a Virtual Gift Exchange…what better way to go green this holiday than with virtual gift giving?!
No more buying $5, $10 or $20 gifts (or expensive gifts for you high rollers), no mailings, and none of that other stuff I hate about holiday shopping!
So when I learned of the virtual gift exchange, I signed up immediately (through Collective Bias of which I’m a member).
What’s a virtual gift exchange?
It’s very simple really. Instead of giving “stuff” to each other, we give our time, online space and readers to one another.
The participants’ gifters are chosen randomly so we don’t know who will be writing about us until today – the day of the exchange. So here we go!
Happy Holidays Amber Trievel AKA Thrifty Mom!
I have yet to meet Amber and getting to know her virtually was quite fun. It was almost like a scavenger hunt and I love me some scavenger hunts!
Amber’s 26, the creator of Thrifty Mom’s Reviews and More, a stay at home mom of 2 boys from Richmond, Virginia, loves dogs, and it’s way cool that she got married on Friday the 13th (6/13/08)!
One thing Amber’s family does that I so love is that they strive to have fun and live life to the fullest. This is something we def have in common!
How Thrifty Mom does it…
Amber’s blog is all about fun reviews from “Ripley’s Believe It or Not” Download the Weird book (and I’m a huge fan of Ripley’s) to Daddy Scrubs Daddy Pack. She has reviews and giveaways for the whole family to enjoy – men, women, and the kids.
And not only does Amber do reviews, but she also has recipes. There’s one of a delicious-looking, cheesy buffalo dip recipe. First of all, anything with cheese on it, I’m good with. Secondly, it’s very easy for someone like me to do and I’m not a fan of being in the kitchen too long!
After learning more about this SexC Momma, I was not surprised to see that we shared something else in common – we’re both Corset Chicks, though at least she’s had the chance to wear one! Me, not so much – yet 😉
“I have seriously ALWAYS wanted to try out a corset! I absolutely love the way women in movies look in one,” says Amber. Check out her review of Corset Chick’s pretty red corset dress.
Amber, I want one too! 🙂
A big kid…
Amber posted on Facebook, “Only 5 days til Christmas!! I feel like a big kid waiting for santa LOL.” I love other big kids. I’m sure Amber and I would have fun if we were in the same circles!
Oh and speaking of the holidays, Amber created a holiday gift guide for those who are still looking for gifts. Yes, this is for all you late buggers out there. 🙂

Over to you…
I hope you enjoyed reading about my new friend, Amber, as much as I enjoyed discovering who she is. I look forward to connecting with her more myself!
