Hi! Here are some zines I have made this year.

This one is about how to pee standing up, if you're a grrrl:




This one is a short photo essay:



These two are ones  that I made with the kids that I teach (Religious Education at a Unitarian Universalist church:





And this is a knitting zine that I have in the works:

2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / New Generation T stuff... Piccy Moderate. on: April 18, 2006 03:00:07 AM
So I got Generation T this weekend, which is perfect because I have been hoarding awesome thrifted T-shirts for a while... and now I hvae some inspiration to use them.

This one is still too big, but you get the idea:

This one was a tab gappy at the boobs, so I added some corset-esque lacing after this picture was taken.

3  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / It's official... on: February 04, 2006 10:47:08 PM
My mother called me a "Yarn Geek" tonight. I think it might have something to do with how much I was gushing over the random stripe generator. Or maybe because I have 5 knittin gprojects going right now, as well as a spinning project. And I spent (her) money on a bunch of yarn today.

Maybe  Grin
4  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / New Zine! on: November 25, 2005 04:20:37 AM
So I started a Zine, called El Bistec (I'm a vegetarian, meat has nothing to do with it really). I have a website where each issue is posted ( www.elbistec.blogspot.com ), and I'm also going to make hardcopies and distribute it locally (local for me is Ventura County, California).

If you live in VC or even nearby -contact me! I am offering free advertising to bands, artists, crafsters, small businesses, etc.

If anyone has done this before, or has any suggestions, let me know!

Today it rained for the first time since I made it, and while he was glad to be dry, he was also really glad when we came home and got to take it off  Grin
6  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Help... Gromet Tape? on: October 18, 2005 10:57:57 PM
Alright, here's the deal:

I live in Ventura, California. I have searched every Fabric / Craft store in the county, and NO ONE has Gromet Tape. No one.

Where the hell can I find it? I really don't want to order it online... I recently had problems with online orders (credit cards + the internet = not always good).

Any suggestions? ZombieTeeth, does Joanns does Special Orders?

Bah... help. Please?  Embarrassed
7  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Hobo bags!!! on: October 10, 2005 03:57:51 PM
Hiya! Here are two hobo bags I made the Tina Fish way. I made the leopardprint one first, and the brown plaid one second. I made the strap long, and wear them messanger-style, because if it's not strapped to me, I tend to lose it  Grin

Some nifty rings I added to the strap:

I'm totally on a rampage with these... there will be many more to come!
The best part is they only take 1/2 yard of each fabric, I spent roughly $7 on each one  Grin




8  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / Paper mache dress form? on: October 09, 2005 01:36:02 PM
Hey guys, I need some input!

I was thinking about making a dress form by having my mom paper mache me. Like, a thin layer, let it dry, cut it off, and mache a few more layers over that.

On a average day, how long would a thin layer take to dry, and will the starch in the mix be toxic to me? Will it be impossible to peel off without hurting my skin? Should I wrap myself in ceran wrap or rub myself down with vaseline (oo lala  Shocked )?


I'm I nuts to try this?


I'm going to post this over in the clothing section as well.


Thanks!!!

Yeah, you heard me  Grin

So my mom was in a slump... and I really wanted to do something to cheer her up. So, I was out poking around in some stores, and found a Bucket O Barnyard Animals. Seriously. And she LOVES cows, so I got it. So... I decided these little fellers needed a home, so here it is:
