Zine/craft grab bag giveaway!

Posted by blatantblithe on August 5, 2012 Blog posts | Personal | | 13 comments

I’ve just spent a few hours going through all the zine and craft supplies living in various drawers and boxes in my room.  I’ve decided to have a bit of a clear out and pass some of my stuff on to other people who will appreciate and be able to use it.  So, I’m giving away four grab bags filled with writing paper, stickers, stencils, envelopes, ephemera, coloured card, magazine and newspaper cuttings, notecards, and other stationery/craft bits and bobs (including lots of cute/kawaii stationery).   Each grab bag will be packed full of stuff – and if you don’t like some of what’s inside, then you can pass it on to someone else who will!

Each package is similarly sized and full of similar stuff.  The first 4 people to comment on this blog post will win a grab bag each!  You won’t have to pay for postage, but please do send me your address as soon as you can so I can post them asap (I’m going to the post office tomorrow so would prefer to can get them all sent then!).

I went to zine event ‘Little Zine Party’ yesterday in Ort Cafe, Birmingham, and had a lovely time.  We didn’t sell a huge amount of stuff, but the few of us that were there spent the day together eating veggie/vegan food, drinking tea, and catching up.  After the event, we went in to Birmingham city centre and spent some time there.  it was a lovely day. 🙂

On August 25th I’ll have a table at the Girls Get Busy Zinefest in London (RSVP here).  I’ll also be doing a zine reading from my latest zine, and am planning to make a free Spill the Zines zine to give out!  It looks like it’ll be a lovely feministy event, with lots of cool workshops running throughout the day, and I’m really looking forward to it.
