2022 was tough, as was the previous year… But creating stuff, reading zines, and witchery helped a lot so in this blogpost I’d like to focus on these fun and arty things. I want to share with you what I’m proud of and some nice memories from the past year:
This month I’d like to blog even more about witchy stuff than usual because, you know, it’s the Season of the Witch. This post will talk about moon magick because soon (tomorrow night) the full moon is upon us. But other moments in the moon’s cycle can be interesting too, and I’ll show you why…
Upcoming zine events (and a bit of music news)
It will be a busy late Summer and Autumn! I’ve got some zine workshops, a craft fair, another zine-making afternoon, and an exhibition planned as well as a concert with Lavender Witch!

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! ❤
Zine bundle upgrade + Lost Luna news
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!

Queer witchery for IDAHOT
Wow, I almost forgot, but it’s IDAHOT today: International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia, and Biphobia. For this occasion I gathered a few resources and ideas to queerify your witchy crafts and witchify your queer activism. Not only to use today but any day of the year that you feel like.
What am I working on this month?
I enjoy working on several creative projects all at once (can you tell?). There’s so much I want to do and make and I enjoy alternating between different artistic disciplines: a bit of writing, a bit of sewing, a bit of drawing, a bit of music… the more the merrier. Because I rarely set strict deadlines and I do them mainly for fun, these creative projects rarely overwhelm me – instead, it’s what keeps me going.
Here are the creative projects that I’m currently working on:
The last tape…
… is gone! So I was gonna make a post today to announce that the last copy of Lost Luna‘s “Wish upon a star” album was still for sale on Bandcamp but it’s just been sold! (Before the dinosaur or the bunny could get their claws or teeth on it – thanks to Kitchen Leg Records for the cool T-Rex photo below!).
Luckily, you can still listen to the songs on Bandcamp for free or acquire the digital version of the album. Kitchen Leg Records may have some tapes left too.
Huge thanks to everyone who bought or listened to the music! I feel honoured and grateful for your interest and support! ❤
Bandcamp Friday and the #1 best-selling grunge tape
Hi, how are you doing? Just so you know, there’s another Bandcamp Friday tomorrow on April 1st (it’s not a joke!). Why is it a good idea to buy music or merch from artists and bands on Bandcamp Fridays? Because on those days Bandcamp doesn’t take their cut of the sales which makes a big difference for independent and DIY artists. So you might want to check out my Bandcamp page and webshop in which I sell my zines as well as the music of my home-recorded solo project Lost Luna.
By the way, the sales of Lost Luna’s “Wish upon a star” album have been going well…

DIY: how I record my songs at home
There are so many ways to home-record your own music, from building a mini-studio to simply using your phone to record yourself playing live. In this blogpost I’ll explain how I recorded the 2 EPs/albums of my solo project Lost Luna: “Shadow play” and “Wish upon a star“. I’ll talk about my own experience, using the materials I already owned. It’s not a manual for how music “should be recorded”, or how others do that, and it’s far from professional but it’s good enough for me to create the songs I want to make.
