A few days ago was Buy Nothing Day and while I fully encourage buying less stuff any day (certainly when it’s made by eco-system destroying and workers exploiting capitalist companies), you may still want to give presents to friends or family for the holidays or for another occasion. And that can be a nice thing! So why not support some small independent creators this season? But first, if you like creating stuff yourself, go ahead and make your own gifts. Self-made presents are always the most precious and unique! But you can also offer hand-made goodies made by others and at the same time support independent creators. Take a look at our webshops, websites, or social media. Some of us may even be into swaps! My creative project Echo Zines is one such independent art project and I have several gift ideas available for you:
For me November is still spooky season. It could really last all throughout these dark Autumn and Winter days in my opinion (in the Northern hemisphere anyway). So how about some spooky reading materials? I have a few zines available for you:
- Witches’ Brew #5 – queer crone witch: full-colour mini-zine about the power of the queer crone witch
- Witches’ Brew #6 – the faces of the moon: full-colour mini-zine about the moon phases and full moon names
- Witches’ Brew #7 – time & space: an A6-size witchy perzine about sceptical/fluid/DIY witchcraft, witchy places, childhood memories, age, the wheel of the year, my magical morning routine, and more.
- Witches’ Brew #8 – sigil catalog: a full-colour mini-zine filled with magickal symbols and a manual with different methods for how to make your own sigils
- Bunnies & Other Monsters: a full-colour halloween-themed zine featuring Chainsaw Bunny and her friends
MORE INFO + HOW TO PLACE AN ORDER:
For me the winter holidays (or the summer holidays in the Southern hemisphere) are the ultimate postcard sending and receiving season. So I’ve prepared two postcard bundles you can send to your friends and family. They are both available in my webshop. In total I’ve created 16 postcards so far over the years. Let’s take a look at all the designs, bundles, and options:
Yes, that’s right, I just finished and printed 5 new witch zines! Four issues of Witches’ Brew and a special Halloween-themed mini-zine called Bunnies and Other Monsters! You can find them all in my webshop or email me to order or suggest a trade. More info about the zines:
I’ve got two craft fairs coming up this month that I’m very excited about, one in Leuven (BE) and one in Lille (FR), AND I’ve just added more things in my webshop (zines, bookmarks, embroidery). I’m also brainstorming about taking commissions for drawing very special portraits… Read on to find out more about all of this:
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…
Yes, I’m closing my Bandcamp webshop in a few days! You can still place an order until August 15th so hurry if there’s something you like. The Lavender Witch shop will close as well so be sure to check out our music and merch while you still can.
After August 15th, the music of Lavender Witch and Lost Luna can still be listened to on Bandcamp but ordering our music (digital/CD), zine bundles, or merch will no longer be possible there. You can however always contact me in person to buy any of my zines, postcards, buttons, the Lavender Witch CD, and more.
I plan to start a new webshop for my zines soon but in the meantime you can email me to place an order (or suggest a trade).
Huge thanks to everyone who has supported my zine project, my solo project, and my band over the years in whichever way! You’re amazing! ❤
As you may have seen in a previous blogpost about my Wonderful Witch bundles, I’ve released two new zines! Witches’ Brew #3 is a witchy perzine in classic cut & paste style and #4 offers recipes for self-love potions. I’ve worked on these two new zines for several months while occasionally showing sneak peeks so here they are finally! 😀 Read on to find out more…
It’s July 13th and Full Moon… time to send some art magick out into the world! 😀
In the past few months I’ve been busy creating lots of different witch-themed things: zines, postcards, buttons, stickers, bookmarks… I hope you will enjoy them as much as I’ve enjoyed making them.
Hi there, how are you?
I have some Lost Luna news to share with you: I’ve upgraded a zine bundle on Bandcamp with a digital download of my latest Lost Luna album “Wish upon a star”, the amazing I Wannabe Yr Grrrl Zine wrote a lovely review of that same album on Instagram, some of its songs have been played on a bunch of podcasts and radioshows, and I’m currently composing new songs on my guitarlele!
