In reply to your comment, I met my father on Facebook a few years back. We instantly hit it off, and learned our lives paralleled a bit, by venues we used to hang out and interests we have. He shown me his old zines like Color Wheel and Signals. I knew he was working on new zines like Paper Radio (formerly Signals), but as I was going through the rabbit hole (after checking out his out-of-date zine wiki), I realized he had more zines made than he mentioned. So I ordered some of his perzines. This is the same time I was getting into Jetta Vegas' 'Write More Letters/Takes One To get One' zines. I decided I had stuff already written that I could throw together. I used to make stuff like zines in my teen years, i.e. the Boys and Girls Club weekly newspaper, and CD Booklets containing poetry as the tracks (started out as a class assignment). So, it's something I hadn't the motivation to do until now. Sure, you can check out my Zine HERE. :-)
I was wondering if you are interested in trading with me. I make a DIY zine called Purple Myrtle Squeegy - A PMS Perzine. I recently published the 2013 24 Hour issue of this zine. I also have many back issues of PMS, and some back issues of my former feminist comp zine called Fallopian Falafel.
Please let me know if you're interested. Your crafts look super!

Krissy oh my gosh, you must think I've fallen off the place of the planet! I loved your package and you are long overdue an awesome reply from me. I got pregnant and have been incredibly distracted for a few months, but I'm starting to feel myself again and getting back down to mail-y business. :)
Hi Krissy, thank you for the kind comment on my photo! My zine is available online at Made It and (from later today) at Format in Adelaide. Later at Sticky in Melbourne, which is also online. I'm not sure whether to go for an o/s distro or not...would welcome your thoughts!
Thanks for the birthday wishes! I have a good birthday, but I have to admit today was kind of better. I listened to cd I haven't listened to in years and read a couple newspapers while the snow piled up outside. Then I took a nice walk on the quieter streets of my neighborhood.
