IZM Week 2 Update

Ok so I'm a little behind on the updates.July 7 - I didn't make any post cards or envelopes since I wasn't sure where I'd be sending anything.July 8 - I made a little flyer for my zine.

24 Hour Zine Thing

Each July, the 24 Hour Zine Challenge asks zinesters to create a 24-page zine from conception to final product in 24 hours straight. Zines should be of suitable size and technical difficulty so that this truly is a challenge for individual zinesters.
