    #ZineWriMo Side Note: So What’s a Media Box?

    Hello, zine friends!

    I’m popping in a little early today with an extra post to explain something a few people asked me about. On day 11 for the daily activities the activity is to make a media box. Inquiring minds want to know:

    What’s a Media Box?

    A media box doesn’t have to be a box. Basically, it’s a place to keep all the cut and paste bits and pieces that go with and inspire your zine creating. You may keep…

    Washi tape

    Stickers

    Magazine/Newspaper Clippings

    Die Cuts

    Or all matter of things that you use in creating your zines, collages, mail art, so on and so forth.

    You can even use those things to decorate whatever container you use to hold those things.

    I hope that answers the question. 🙂 I’ll be back in a few with today’s prompt as well as today’s zine review!

    I am soooo happy this little beauty arrived in my post box. I was beginning to think that it has been lost to the postal nexus. This is a part order, part bundle of fun (I love extras!) from MC Sunflower Jones on Etsy. How gorgeous and bright is this lovely envie?

    Big fluffy hearts to MCSJ for doing this little thing: leaving a gap for an envelope opener. I love washi and stickers to the moon and back, but when envies are taped up super tight with no gaps, it’s a bit difficult to open them not to mention the danger of damaging paper items inside.

    Holy zine bundle, Batman! So many zines – and stuff to go with them!

    What’s more is that they are totally adorable tiny zines.

    I had to grab myself the Leo and a Capricorn one for Wanderer.

     

     

    PS. That thing I was talking about yesterday was the possibility of making a video. I chickened out amongst other reasons for not doing it. But I still have plans for making videos.

    Happy Mail! Oh, Sweet Happy Mail

    Just when I thought I would have no happy mail to share for the week, These little lovelies come in last minute.

    Zines, glorious zines!

    Zine Ninja had a glorious swim through the creative pages of this wonderful envelope stuffed full of ziiiiiiines. Love it. These were put together by Nat from Sticky. Apparently I opted to be paid in zines this round for stocking my zines there. Never would have guessed. Haha. There are heaps of new reading materials. BUT there is one that I already have a copy of. I smell a giveaway coming up!

    On another note, I received this lovely (despite my less-than-stellar photography) pocket letter from the US. It had all kinds of little goodies, including a super adorable fox stamp set.

    (Want to know what pocket letters are? Click this link.)

    So yes, I’m a very happy bunny with all these goodies. I’ll be sending more out into the world in the hopes more nice things visit my post box. Keep in mind that my post box is open to all friendly happy mail. My focus is on zines, but I loooooove any positive mail. 🙂
