a place for zinesters - writers and readers
This is actually pretty cool! I already have a new zinester's address and as far as I know, they already sent me their zine, so I just have to make the package and send mine too!
This is fun! I can't wait to read someone else's new zines! My zine collection box will love me for it.
The truth is I have absolutely no idea where to find zinesters that actually review zines. So yesterday, I just made a package with no name or address on it so that I can fill it in when I actually do find someone.
I wrote a message on the Zines A Go Go group on Facebook and waiting for a response. I also looked it up online. I came across the Spill the Zines website, which I had already heard of before. It's a Zine Review site but apparently, they are not taking anymore requests for…Continue

ok, I did take a bit of creative license on these days. Took care of a fellow zinester and mailed some art...

At this moment I work on FAH #2 and FAH #3 almost simultaneously. I think FAH #3 will be released first, possibly this August, and I'm afraid FAH #2 will eventually be skipped (to become the best zine you never read in your life). I'm on the move and FAH #2 feels already outdated. I'll post photos of the work in progress on FAH #3 this weekend.

I was going to skip this activity too and work on my zine instead, but I totally forgot to photocopy all the flyers and material I have to be used as backgrounds for my zine. And since I already finished the writing part, and just need to make the layout, I got stuck with no material for layout at all. So I went ahead and worked on some mail art instead.
I had to edit some of my postcards with the new URL for my Etsy shop since I changed the name of it from Hadass420 (which really…Continue

Yesterday, my husband printed a bunch of copies of my PMS zines that I needed to mail out to Boston to have it ready for the zine fest coming up in October. I hope to be tabling there with my friend, Dawn, which will totally rule.
So the package I made yesterday wasn't really a care package but just a package of zines.
But I made a mental note to make one at some point this week.
I got some sweet ideas for stuff to include in the package, which I won't detail here…Continue

The activity was to write a letter to a zinester that I don't know. And since it didn't specify whether it was a current zinester, and whether it had to be someone I REALLY don't know, I wrote to my new penpal Alexis who is a former zinester. We've had only a single mail correspondence, never met in person, and she actually had to go digging around her old stuff to find her old zines.
I have yet to send out my letter, but I have a few other packages to organize, including the care…Continue

Todays was quite simple but I ended up spending a lot of time on the flyer then I originally was going to, but I didn’t mind cos it was fun. I actually had a flyer that went alongside my Deadbeats mini-zine “Words of Wisdom” but I don’t have any of those anymore.
The flyer below is a photo manip job done on…Continue
IZM: Day 7, 8 & 9: So I know that these three days have specific things attached to them but I just made a flier for my zines and I didn't have time to make postcards or envelopes but I did spent the evening yesterday writing letters. I will also be doing this tonight and tomorrow night since I have so many awesome people to respond to. Considering the whole month of June was shot for me in terms of creativity, I have a lot of catching up to do correspondence-wise. If I owe you a…Continue

At the office, it was pretty quiet so I tried looking around the web for an ecommerce site that I could use instead of Etsy. I started playing around with the layout and everything, and it was fun, so that when I got home, I couldn't stop thinking about it and didn't really feel like making a flyer. But I did what I usually do in situations where I don't really feel like doing something - I go ahead and do it anyway. Eventually, the pleasure of creation ensues.
So I did my flyer. I…Continue
