Me: on Ferris wheel 2012-09-09
So recently beetiger started a 24-hour ’zine project to benefit a fund for survivors of the Knoxville UU shooting. I signed up. And then I almost forgot about it. And today it was in my mailbox — a paper ’zine, like back in the ’80s! (Only without obvious hand-corrected mistakes and physical cut-and-paste marks on every page.) It is very cool, and it’s basically about all sorts of crafting and art projects. The title is “Femina faber, femina ludens”, and when I heard about it I thought it was a cute little self-referential idea — that she was going to make a ’zine about how she was making a ’zine. But it’s a lot more practical than that; it’s basically a bunch of how-tos for interesting- and fun-sounding projects. (cathijosephine, you especially should look through it at some point.) And it came with a nifty little sculpey (?) micro-sculpture of a face with a vine crossed over it.

Go beetiger! Thank you!

(If anyone is inspired to donate [EDIT:] and get a copy, she says you can still do so. Her entry announcing the project describes how, with an optional PayPal button.)

I'm glad you enjoyed it! I never actually got to it in the 80s, so it was really fun to do it now. Offer of copies for donations still applies to anyone who didn't get in on it during the project, if anyone would like. :)

Cool; I’ve editted the post to reflect that. Thanks!
