I’m participating in Critical Thinking Witch Con 2022! It’s a witch con that focuses on sceptical / agnost / atheist / secular witchcraft. It’s the second edition and it was formerly known as the SASS Witch Con. Register here to attend the witch con (more info below).
I’m one of the vendors at the event and will also definitely attend most of the panels and workshops because the programme sounds awesome and I don’t want to miss anything! 🙂 I expect it will feel like a zine fest or a ladyfest or another DIY event but focused on witchcraft and it’s virtual so you can attend from anywhere. The witch con will also discuss and apply that DIY idea which I’m super excited about.
For this occasion I added two new bundles in my Ko-fi webshop: a quaranzine comix bundle and a self-care mini-zine bundle! You can see some photos below:
(And of course I have plenty of witchy zines, stickers, buttons, and spell bags in my shop!)

In need of some witchspiration? Here is a selection of super inspiring witchcraft videos to help you start or broaden your practice:
I’d like to announce my brand-new webshop on Ko-fi! Take a look around! I thought it would be a nice project to launch on the first day of Autumn. In my shop you can find zines, buttons, stickers, postcards, and spell bags…
In the Northern hemisphere, September 22nd marks the Autumn equinox this year. On that day, daytime is as long as the night. Autumn equinox coincides with the pagan holiday Mabon, the second harvest holiday which indicates feasting, prosperity, and sharing and enjoying food. As the days are getting shorter and colder in this part of the world, I’d personally like to invite reflection, resting, and self-care and community care into my life. September is also the first month of the new school year. Summer holidays are over, so it really feels like saying goodbye in some way. So Mabon / Autumn equinox can mean making space for learning, playing, celebration, abundance, gratitude, and self-love. Read on to find out about my Autumn plans and Mabon altar:
First, a little announcement: the outdoors zine-making gathering that I’m organising tomorrow in Ghent will be cancelled due to rainy and chilly weather. Sorry about that! I hope to be able to organise one in October if the weather spirits are in our favour. 🙂 If you still want to do creative stuff tomorrow, I can recommend going to Girls Go BOOM’s button-making workshop at the Meubelfabriek!
I guess tomorrow will be more indoors zine-reading than outdoors zine-making weather… So here are some recommendations: Last month I read a bunch of lovely zines again. This time they talked about exciting topics such as music, herb foraging, graveyards, ageism, aromantic plants, and ghost towns, and featured comics, collages, photography, travel stories, interviews, and more… Discover them all here:
Come and make or buy some zines in September! If you are in Ghent this month, check out these zine events:
- This Sunday September 11th I’ll be participating in the Go Local market at Meubelfabriek. I’ll bring my postcards, buttons, (mini)zines and maybe some other things! Sister Ray Zines will share a table with me with her witchy creations.
On Saturday September 17th I’m organising another zine-making gathering! All welcome to make zines, do crafts, or just hang out. It take place from 3 pm at the Bijloke park on the picnic benches in between the STAM museum and the Kunstenbibliotheek. Cancelled due to rainy weather!
- On Saturday September 24th the feminist collective Girls Go BOOM hosts a workshop to make your own mini-zine. This happens at the Meubelfabriek too.
Also, there’s an online zine symposium and zine jam this Friday the 9th and Saturday the 10th with super interesting talks and workshops! Make sure to sign up in advance.

Something I’ve learned and appreciated since the March 2020 lockdown is exploring my own city, Ghent (in belgium). I’ve walked in so many parks, streets, and neighbourhoods, took so many photos, discovered hidden spots, and enjoyed being a tourist close to home. And I intend to continue doing so. On my walks I’ve noticed and embraced the magick of these green spaces: from witchy trees to portals and from deserted gardens to cat friends. Here, I’ll show you some of that magick, follow my lead…

With a little bit of delay, here’s what I read during International Zine Month (IZM)…
😮 Today, August 25th, is Chainsaw Bunny‘s birthday aka the anniversary of her creation! Send all birthday cards, carrot cake, and wishes her way! She’s turned 14 but is still such a little baby. 🙂
Some cute photos:
I was very honoured when the Berlin-based feminist grunge band Passionless Pointless asked me to design an illustration/logo for their new T-shirt. I love their music and had a lot of fun making the design. I hope it captures their fiery feminist spirit! ❤
Get the shirt from Passionless Pointless on their Bandcamp!
