Description:

I am in the mood to put together a quick zine and not spend any time thinking about it beforehand.

For this swap you are committing to spend an afternoon or evening planning, creating, copying, folding and mailing your zine.

Look at the sign up deadline and swap deadline and make sure you have about a 4-5 hour window to give life to your zine.

It must be at least 8 pages and no larger than half page size. You may do the 8 pages from one piece of paper.

Don't even think about this swap beforehand. Just sign up and when you see that partners are assigned figure out which day you have the time to complete the project. Then send to your 4 partners.

Zines may be created with typewriter, computer, by hand, collage or artsy. It's your choice. Topic can be anything.

Glad you're doing this again! Watching for now, but I will most certainly join in. :)

Also watching - just need to make sure I will have time to complete the zine before signing up, but really want to try it so if I don't join this round will definitely join a future round...

@TangleCrafts and @snout and we would love to have you now or in the future! ;)

I've realised I think I'm too much of a planner for this kind of project to work well for me! ;)

Can this be something that I do NOW and then send then? I will definitely have time to do it then, but I won't have time to scan/copy/make the zine for three people before the due date. I can, however, make the zine tonight in 5 hours and definitely have it ready by then :p

In other words, I have to travel to get to a copier and use all the supplies I need to get my zines made... and it's 25 minutes away now but it'll be an hour away then because I'm moving and won't have a new place established :x

@papermoon Yes.... What you asked is fine. Doing it early is fine.

TangleCrafts 03/18/2013 #

Okay, I give in: I'm in. ;)

I convinced myself to commit, but then forgot to do it before the deadline. Maybe I'll get into round 3, if there is one!

snout 03/22/2013 #

Bah! Me too @camelsamba me too...

soyprincesa2 03/24/2013 #

@snout and @camelsamba .. round 3 is already posted. Join us!

Round 3 is a public swap rather than a group swap.

There is a public AND group swap for Round 3.
