I’m closing my webshop(s)…

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.

-> my Echo zines, postcards, witchy bundles, and Lost Luna music

-> Lavender Witch music and merch

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! ❤

Echo Zines bundles on Bandcamp

Hi there! Did you already know I have a Bandcamp shop? You can find it here. In that shop I’m selling zines, postcards, embroideries, and buttons as well as music. Most of them come in bundles but if you want to order specific things separately, let me know via email. In my “blog catalogues” can find all zines, postcards, and other merch I still have available. Excellent for gifts for yourself and others!*

I’m currently brainstorming for more zines and merch and will add a new postcard to my catalogue some time next year. Keep an eye on this blog… 🙂

Visit my Bandcamp webshop.

*Unfortunately I can’t promise that anything you order now will arrive on time for the winter holidays!

Looking for presents to give to friends or family? Here are some ideas…

Normally around this time of the year I would be participating in craft fairs and Christmas markets but that’s not possible due to Covid-19. But then, let’s do a giant online craft fair, right?

If you’re looking for presents to give to friends or family (or yourself) or postcards to surprise them or wish them well, I have some options available for you: original gift ideas hand-made by yours truly including postcards, zines, and music. Take a look at my table: 🙂

New zines: Forever Incomplete #12/Same Heartbeats #16 (split zine) + Same Heartbeats #17

Exciting news: I have not one but two new zines for sale!

❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤

Let’s start with the split zine:

Same Heartbeats #16 is a new split zine which comes together with Forever Incomplete #12! So the zine consists of two halfs, one made by Kirsty and one by me, and we each made a cover for our half. After tableing at a zine fest in the UK last summer, Kirsty of the Forever Incomplete zine series and I decided to make a split zine on the theme of love. In the following months we wrote about a variety of topics including friendship, food, and fandom, and we published it all in this split zine.

It’s A5 size, 36 pages, colour cover on both sides, inside black & white on recycled paper.

So what’s inside?

Kirsty’s half:

  • Crushes and relationships
  • Food
  • TV shows
  • Pokemon
  • and more…

My half:

  • Why I ❤ the band Alice in Chains
  • Zine ❤
  • Friendship vs social expectations of what ❤ is
  • What I ❤ about Berlin
  • My growing collection of guitar effect pedals
  • Recommended films and tv series about (female) friendships
  • and more…

How to order? Scroll down…

❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤

And then there is another one!

Same Heartbeats #17 is a regular issue of my ongoing feminist perzine series. It’s filled with the usual zine fests and craft fair reports, band stories, and other things that I’ve been doing or thinking about. There are articles, drawings, a comic, and a how-to manual, so plenty of zine goodness to enjoy!

It’s A5 size, 32 pages, black & white, printed on recycled paper.

 

So what’s inside?

Zinester merch: buttons, prints, postcards, lavender bags, bunnies and cats

One of the ways I use to fund my zine-making is by creating and selling other hand-crafted things, such as lavender bags, postcards, and buttons.

I sell them at craft fairs (like Marché Créatif Féministe happening today in Brussels) and sometimes at zine fests and you can order them online by contacting me. The postcards are also for sale at some bookshops and libraries in Belgium and in the UK.

How to buy them:

Mail me to place an order or go to one of the events where I’m tableing.

Music and merch on Bandcamp

I’m very excited to announce that I’ve put some merch up for sale on Bandcamp. I’m selling a set of ten postcards there and might add zines to the shop in the future. First, I’d like to see how it goes to run an online shop.

On the same Bandcamp page, there’s also an instrumental demo recording of a song called “Off the Road” for you to listen to. I will add more music soon, mostly old recordings of my solo project Lost Luna.

 

Silkscreen print – “March On”

“March On”

For an exhibition in Namur in March of this year, I designed a two-colour silkscreen print that was printed by Chocs et Ennui who also organised the event. Read about the exhibition here or in my new zine Same Heartbeats #15 (which also features a black and white reprint of the illustration).

I still have some prints for sale. They are 10 euros each.

(I prefer to sell them in person or at zine/craft fairs so they don’t risk getting damaged by the postal system…).

Mail me if you’re interested or if you have questions.

Colours: black and hot pink on white paper. Size: 35 x 50 cm.

Here you can see the print displayed at the exhibition –>
