a place for zinesters - writers and readers
“Paws Up!” is a brand new zine that focuses on all things cats: the human connection with them, how great they are, how much they sleep, that cute little thing they do that you’re convinced no other cat ever does, and everything else embodying why cats are so great.
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 I'm on the move and FAH #2 feels already outdated.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
