I’m sitting outside at work, thankful it hasn’t rained as predicted though I was sure it wa going to given I forgot my lunch today. So I sit here with my Dr Pepper and Mrs Mac sausage roll and sketchbook, sun on my back reflecting on the journey I am wrapping up.
And it has been a journey, right from the first idea of making the zine inspired by those I saw being made on other peoples blogs. I wanted to do more than just a simple 20 page zine with small glimpses of interesting things . I wanted to go into more detail and inspire others to give it all a go. Hopefully I have achieved that!
Taking the zine down to the copiers yesterday was a treat, I was filled with worry it would somehow end up being less than I had intended, however the questions about it from the young girl copying it and her interest and sweet comments made my day..
I spent part of last night hand binding and adding in all the extra bits, envelope to hold a pattern, extra little pages to be stuck on an ATC or two and I have putting the preorder packs together to be posted out.
I can safely say I have a new love.. Making these Zines in the way I truely wanted to have one to read..
There will be an issue two… 😀
