I'm probably the last person to be posting pics, but here they are!

The awesome "I'm Not Picky" zine by Lovely Miss. I love the cross stitch font.

It also had a surprise in the back! Which I will be using to scrapbook with.  Grin

Zine on Mandala by elyxandra, which I was super stoked about because it's kinda like an adult coloring book

Zine about Hawaii by Yoopidou. I've never been, but now I want to!

The fishy drawings were my favorite part.

And lastly, "Stuff to Do" by goddessgarb. It's so adorable and full of great ideas for boring days!

I love napping and the little drawing by it made me laugh.

Thanks for swapping with me, everyone! I loved all the zines.  Grin

Well. I've now received all four of my zines. I arrived back home after a trip away to find three waiting for me. I've had a flick through them all and I look forward to reading them properly.

The first zine I received was the lovely one by Yoopidu about Hawaii. Unfortunately, I couldn't find it when I was taking all the pictures but I really enjoyed all the pages about kayaking - it really feels like a completely different world for me. I also thought that the mix of type and hand written bits worked very well. It is especially relevant as I have a flight booked for the USA on the 12th December and I'm going to go travelling. Even if I don't make it to Hawaii, this certainly whetted my travelling appetite. Again, a massive apologies for not putting pictures here, as soon as I find the zine I will edit to add pictures.

I received the zine Pug Love from lancmaltby. I really like the card you used on the zine and the very high quality printing. I can definitely see this as a very good coffee table zine to add a little bit of interest. It has a very whimsical feel.

I received the zine Brain Snippets from rougeraven. I haven't had a proper chance to read it but it looks very relevant to my life as I am finding myself in need of focusing more on my creative side (I lose too much time to that frenemy the internet!) I really like bird/godies insert, it added a lot of interest to the zine.

The final zine I have to share with you today is Stuf to do... by goddessgarb. THe suggestions that I've flicked through look really fun and I like the use of diferent type settings and the hand drawings. I think that this might end up in my hand bag for whenever I need a little bit of inspiration.

Thank you to RougeRaven for organising this fantastic swap, to all the people I've received from for the fantastic zines and for all the people I sent to for being so patient with my late sending.

Found it!  Okay, that means I get to post first and spoil the surprise for the others getting this zine!  LOL!  I got my zine from Yoopidou today!  It's all about what to do in Hawaii. 

As if anyone ever needed MORE incentive to go.  LOL!  It's hand-drawn and written (mostly) and full of cute little drawings, and my favorite page is the one on her garden, which says what she planted and how it turned out.  I can't even wrap my head around planting your own pineapple, bananas, and coconuts!!!

And she included a gorgeous post card.

Thank you Yoopidou!  I'll tuck this into my bag when I finally make that dream trip to Hawaii!

I received from yoopidu!

She made a great zine about her home state, Hawaii. She included the best places to see the sunset, where to go rock jumping, tips of how to kayak, etc. I love these fish drawings!

I also received from lancmaltby, who made an adorable mini zine featuring pugs!

I love the paper she chose to print on- it's a fine white shimmer paper so everything glimmers and has a slight metallic look to it.

She also included an adorable extra- a kit to make a small pug pincushion of her puppy!

Let me just say these zine are SUPER AWESOME!!!!

Hayleylujah's zine is a collection of great vegan recipes ... I'm a vegetarian, so this is just way to perfect!

This looks really yummy!!!

Going to be making this for Tofurkey Day next week!!!

Thank you so much Hayleylujah!!!!

rougeraven zine is about her journey for each month in a year to have a daily creative project. She had a list for each month what she was going to do like :: film 1 second of film each day for a month, embroider something each day and bake something each day? I love this creative journey!!! I myself have been in a creative funk so this zine was a wonderful eye opener and has got me thinking too what can I do each day to be creative!

Here is where she embroidered something each day!

She also had an envelope of goodies at the end!

Thanks so much rougeraven

I received two fantastic zines today, both very interesting.

From Hayleylujah, I got an extensive collection of vegan recipes with yummy pictures and a very cute cover and end. It's great since I am not vegan but not very carnivorous either. I am happy to get the opportunity to try already tested vegan recipes. I had to choose two favorite pages:
the list of recipes, and there are quite a few,

and the dark chocolate ice cream. I love dark chocolate and I can't wait to try this recipe.

From Elyxandra, I got a beautiful bright yellow square mini-zine about mandalas. How clever to choose a square size for a zine about mandalas. She gives two methods to make my own mandala and how to meditate with it. I have always admired them but never found enough patience to create one. She inspired me to make my own.

Thank you elyxandra and Hayleylujah

I received RougeRaven's awesome and beautiful zine today.

The front and back cover, and I really like how people stitched their zine bindings.

All of the backgrounds are so neat...it must have taken forever to get everything together!

I had to show the little cut out birdie.  Smiley

Thanks, again, RougeRaven.  It's very inspiring and I love how to stayed true to cut and paste zine style.

I received Lovelymiss' beautiful and very inspirational zine. It is artfully done and highly interesting to read. You can see she put lots of thoughts into it.

it was hard to choose a favorite page. She put some motivational quotes and drew some funny cute animals.

I loved the crafty surprise in the end!

Thanks a lot, Lovelymiss

I got RougeRaven's art journal zine, and I love it.  It really resonates with me because like you, RougeRaven, I'm constantly examining the meaning and purpose of art in my life, struggling with my resistance, my fears, wondering if it's worth the time and money...and I love love love to see snippets, like you say, of another artist's psychological process. 

So, I really love the cover.  I am trying so hard not to be all, "Oh, she has one so I need one," about art supplies, but man...I gotta get a label maker.

And I love this spread the best for many reasons.  I love that you said 'shit', even though it was going to be shared, I love that you shared one of your art playlists, and of course I love that I got goodies.

And another spread I love, this one for the honest sharing and introspection.  I have been art journaling all day today myself, so I thought I'd hold the spread open with my 'art journaling manicure'.  Wink

Thanks, RougeRaven!  You've inspired me to do an art journal all just about my creative process.

I received my zine from fancybutch today! 

I couldn't choose a favorite page because they were all great, and I wanted to leave a few for other people to post.  Smiley  But I love "robot tag...graffiti rules."

And I really liked the full page image on the back cover.

Thanks, fancybutch!  It must have been a lot of work taking photos everywhere, but it turned out great!  What a fun zine project.

those are great and I love how totally different then are!

I received from elyxandra this fabulous bright yellow square shaped (love the shape) zine on Mandalas.
I'm a fan of mandalas.  I learned some things and really enjoyed it.

I got my zine from lancmaltby today.  I love the puppies!  So cute, and the overall style is great. 

The back pages were my some of my favorite...I love the little polaroid photos.  And as a side note, I also love your handwriting!

Thank you!

I got my cute copy of heyleylujah's vegan zine, too, and by now, you've all seen the glimmery-eyed pig cover that persuades you away from meat:

And my favorite page is the end, with the most adorable little pictures.  I mean, look at that cow!  I think it's the cutest cow I've ever seen.  And that little creature biting the celery makes me want celery soooo bad.  LOL!

Thanks, hayleylujah!
