Did you see my new zine bundles?

If you didn’t already see it, my new mini-zines are out! I’ve made a bundle with them and my newest postcard and it’s available in my webshop. The zines discuss my amulet collection and the stories behind them, cosy ideas to fight Autumn blues, where I find joy, bunny witchcraft by Chainsaw Bunny, how to celebrate a zine anniversary, and more, plus there’s a mini-game zine: a queer choose your own adventure!

I also have “spell bags” available in my shop! These home-sewn sachets are filled with lovely-smelling herbs, colourful beads, and magickal sigils, and are meant to encourage your confidence, joy, and power. I’ll soon disclose how I made them! Find them here.

Crafty summer projects

Besides making zines and music, I also enjoy doing some crafts once in a while…

This summer I’ve been making some new buttons with my button machine (see previous blogpost) as well as sewing a lot of patches on clothes and bags. This was inspired partly by a present by my friend and writer Evelien Victor and by a big online order of patches that arrived from zine pal and queer artist Yori. I also participated in a virtual workshop by another zine pal and artist Seleena Laverne Daye (organised by Andro & Eve) where she taught us participants how to make self-portraits out of felt (Seleena also gave a workshop about the zines in July). Mine aren’t finished yet though… In the photo above you can see that I’ve been sewing a new face mask too. With the ongoing pandemic and some of my masks getting a bit worn-out, it seemed like a good idea to make a fresh one. Finally, I’ve started doing some more embroideries but those are still a surprise! You will find out more about them soon on this blog.

Snail mail not snails!

Decorating envelopes is so much fun!

I’ve been sending out a lot of zines and postcards lately and I like to personalise the packages. Most of the time I use stamps, either rubber stamps (I have a small collection) or lino cut stamps that I’ve made myself. Sometimes I use washi tape (but I find that it doesn’t always stick very well) or make little drawings.

I’m currently using some of these envelopes for trades and orders of Same Heartbeats #18 and other zines.

Do you want to receive some snail mail too? Read here how you can place an order!
