Profile Information


Hi! My name is Mellie. I live in Chicago. I am a Vegan. Okay, with that out of the way....I like walking around with my husband Kriss while looking for new places. I am very fond of indie book stores and little grocery shops.

I am going to help start a zine with a few people called The Avocado. It's named after a room in our apartment that is painted a tacky green and a stripe of brown. It's pretty much going to be about food and other fun things.

My favorite zines are about Veganism and sustainable living.

Well Then

So many blogs to write, so little time!

Anyway, I am working on my first zine in over 10 years...yikes. I feel like I almost forgot how to do it. I am having fun learning though. I know it will be an amazing experience once I get things rolling.

Anyway, happy winter :)
