So, I was sitting here (at the computer) yesterday, pondering another long To-Do list. And suddenly I remembered that I had these beauties sitting in my unopened mail.
There are so many lovely things about opening an envelope from Su, but first and foremost, I love how she pays attention to the details. She designs her own envelopes and notecards. And she makes her own artistamps to seal them. It’s so fun how everything’s sent from Tangledom.
(Note to self: I want to make artistamps too! And I want to create my own magical land to post letters from!)
In my envelope I found a copy of Su’s latest zine, Thief of Time, and a membership to her awesome TangleClub.
…And I was so excited to see that she’d used this tutorial to give her new publication a fabulous fabric cover. Yaaay!
Thief of Time is about making time for creativity. It contains a seven-day journal of Su’s crafting life, along with a series of To-Do pages you can use to keep track of the things you want to make time for.
I adore this idea. Because, for all the hours I spend immersed in thinking about crafts, I’m finding myself actually crafting less. And this makes me a bit twitchy.
I’ll be using my zine to keep a running list of my dream projects… like, making a granny square blanket. Doing some clothing reconstruction. And making stuffies from all those felted sweater scraps in my garage.
Because Su is an amazing zine-maker, she’s also bound a little full-color zine into her zine. It’s called Going Postal, and it’s a whole other publishing project Su does about mail art. It now runs to seven volumes!
I highly recommend checking out Su’s little publishing empire, The Tangled Press. So many interesting and beautiful zines!
And on her website, you’ll find all kinds of goodies, including free projects, swaps, mail art, book reviews, and more. Tangledom is an awesome place to hang out.
