Fill It 2 Zine Swap


the fork is in this photo because I was using it to fold.
I just completed my very first zine! Swap-bot posted a swap where participants trade off with five other participants. The coordinator makes the arrangements and you just find out to whom you ship. This was so much fun! It was created based on a template with small prompts, this can be found through the swap coordinator, as she had it posted on her blog


I have already received a few zines in the mai land will take photos and post them soon!
I can't wait for the next one:) I'm supposed to get from five partners.



Flat view..there is a special way to fold and cut into a booklet.
Looking forward to my next zine swap!

oh yeah, yay!! Tomorrow is Friday - TGIF!
Take care and will be back soon,
Fran

Ummmmmmmmmm awesome zine eye candy, I'm loving it!! No I've never been on swap bot, might have to take a look!! There's also a ning site called 'we make zines' which is open and seems to be the mecca for all zinesters! I just need to spend a little time on something else though now for a while, because I reeeeeeeeeeally want to carry on making zines and I know that if I do...I will be lost never to be seen again lol much love

Love your zine - I've been intrigued for awhile but not sure where to learn more of see what others are doing. Thanks for the intro to swap bot and jennibellie's mention of we make zines. I'm off to explore - thanks for the visit.

Fran this is so creative and cool. Thanks for sharing your zine and the project link. Not really my cuppa tea at present, but def fun to lurk! xoxo

What a fantastic little zine you've made here! Defending Your Life is such a quirky, thought-provoking, gem of a movie. And The Wizard of Oz is probably my favorite movie of all time. :)

thanks for your comment! I try on Etsy to see if I can get a look at other zines. Enjoy!

Fran T said...

Yes, I just love Albert Brooks:) I know the Wizard of Oz is wonderful isn't it? My best friend and I would get the soundtrack from the library, play the record [dating myself ;)]on the stereo and act out the whole movie. Our poor mothers!
