the Great Zine Giveaway!

A while ago, the bright & shiny My Girl Thursday generously gave me a stack of zines. I picked up a brown paper bag spilling over in zines. There were so many that my brain sputtered at the thought of eyeballing all those pretty little zines! I ended up heading to a cafe directly after picking up the bag, and promptly emptied it out on a table top (far away from my steaming cup of latte goodness!). It was a smorgasborg of zineness!

After spending a lot of time pouring over these zines, I thought I'd do what Thursday did for me, and give away a stack of zines. So, here I am, hosting 'the Great Zine Giveaway!'.

Up for grabs are 14 lovely zines, which includes:
  1. food stamps foodie #1 by Milkyboots

  8. What a great giveaway! I haven't read zines in ages, would love to get back into it.

    My very geeky crush of the moment is on Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall of River Cottage fame, because I like a man who can grow his own veggies and only eats sustainable meat.

  17. Hello darling!

    Being the computer-challenged person I am, I'm not sure how to become a follower (unless by that you just mean read your blog, which I do! *grin*). As for who I have a crush on, hmmmm, good question. Presently I'm doubly crushin' on authors Andrew Kaufman and Adam Rex. Brilliant, witty wordsmiths do it for me!

  18. What a great idea!

    I have a crush on Bert (Bert and Ernie~Sesame Street) (its hard to explain)
