Hey folkses — I’ve been a little quiet this week while gearing up for a 24-hour zinemaking challenge called the 24 Hour Zine Thing, aptly enough. In the challenge, you write, layout, and produce an entire 24+ page zine (or independent, self-produced magazine, for the unaware) in just 24 hours.
Yes, it’s a crazy endeavor. And it means a whole lot of coffee. Trust me.
But now, my 24 hours are over, and I’m happy to share with you:
Maybelle, issue 1.
There are short articles on composting, gardening, making things from scratch, green housekeeping with vinegar, and even a recipe or two. (And a nice little diatribe on Monsanto, because I can’t help myself where that company’s concerned.)
You can download a free copy here.
Fair warning: it was made in just 24 hours, part of which I was sleeping, so it’s not at all perfect. But it’s kind of fun, and since it covers stuff we’ve talked about here before, I thought I’d share.
