Sunday, Sunday

Ah, it's a lazy day for me. Lounging, laundry time, still trying to get everything back in order after my Chicago trip. But it was worth it. Femme Con was... amazing. Powerful. Transformative. I came back energized and politicized.

It also was great to meet some kickass femmes who are also on Etsy. I met and talked with the owner of CherryBerryBunny, who was vending at the conference. Everywhere I turned, someone was wearing one of her necklaces!

I talked with various femme ladies about starting an Etsy Queers (or maybe Etsy Femmes) team. There's interest out there, and one vendor I talked to (I think it was the femme behind QueenofQueens had said she was thinking of doing the same thing. Anyway - if you're on Etsy and queer or femme and interested in being on a queer or femme street team, let me know!

I'm posting new things soon, too. I haven't yet been able to figure out how the hell to post photos in this blog. The usual way I post images doesn't seem to work. Anyone have any idea? My google fu is failing.

Heading to Chicago!

Mornin'! I'm giddy with anticipation, because tomorrow I'm heading to Chicago for the Femme Conference. Check it out if you're in the Chicago area! I'll have some zines and maybe some other merch to sell, but I opted not to get a vendor table for the conference because I'll be traveling by myself... this is one time when I didn't want to be tied down to a table. I'm too excited about all of the workshops for this event.

But - I made one of these for myself:

And I think I'm going wear it all weekend.

That ever-awkward first post

It's been a long time since I've kept a blog, but I've been crafting like it's going out of style (which it most definitely is NOT), and I figure I'll jump on this crafty-blog train. Hello!

Most recent adventures in craft?
I have been completely revamping my Etsy shop.
I think I finally learned how to take a decent picture (natural light is your friend!).
I've been extremely excited by freezer paper stenciling.
I've been obsessed with my paper doll (a paper doll I am making, not like one that I play with. No making fun.).
Also, loving my zine (Genderbent: Notes from the Drag King Community). J & I finished Issue #2 (the Femme Issue) this weekend. I want to make more and more zines, about any and every topic. A craft zine. A zine about making zines. A zine about my love for zines.
