butterfly girl : where she goes when she

stolen from a whole bunch of lovely people ♥

1. Reply to this post if you want/need me to publicly tell you how cool you are!
2. Watch my journal over the next few days for a post just about you and possibly why I think you rock socks.
3. Post these instructions in your journal and give your friends a much needed dose of love and adoration!
4. If you know of someone who could use the lift, go ahead and post in your journal why you think they rock.

in other words, it is hot out there today, and i am trying to decide how badly i need to go out. i need to get prints made for the photo collage book i'm making my nan for christmas, buy another glue stick, and start photocopying my zine (because it is all ready to go now !) i also need more christmas cards for you lovelies and to get my sister's present. gah. i'm tempted to stay indoors all day though and make websites & write letters, but it's not going to get any cooler tomorrow either. i'm trying to be more organised, or at least stop procrastinating ;)

for the inspirational kathleeniefont

kathleen, i have known this girl for about 6 years online (since 1998, i think), and she is one of the best writers i know. i have been following her journal religiously for years and her words read like an amazing story except it's true and it's happening to one of the talented girls i know. she's following her dreams to be in the theatre and i admire that just so, so much. after so many years i am so glad to see her happiness with cruz, because it is very much deserved. kathleen, yours is one of the very few journals i have ever gone back to read through the archives, because your writing is just so amazing. i hope to know you for a very long time yet. ♥

for the gorgeous fragilehearted

linda is another beauty i have known for several years, and i really admire her. she is such a breath of fresh air and i don't think she knows how fabulous she is. she is honest and sweet and a wonderful, wonderful friend. if i ever go to the USA, she is one of the "must-meets" on my list, because i think she'd be a blast to hang out with ! linda, i know we don't talk a lot all the time but you are so special to me, and i hope we can continue to be friends and to know each other through the years. i'm sorry i don't tell you this enough, but you really are an awesome girl!

for the artistic winters_rose

meg dear, you are about one of the easiest to write about right now !! you are so, so special to me, and i am so glad we have gotten the chance to talk a lot lately. your emails make me smile, our chats make me laugh out aloud some days and always put me in a good mood. you are such a talented artist with so much potential, and i hope you never lose that. you are so caring, warm and beautiful, and you have inspired me so much. plus you introduced me to a book that has become one of my very favourites ! {yup, i'm talking about Mists of Avalon ^^} keep drawing & painting {i'm still waiting to hear more about Fitz !} and never forget that i love you and i am definitely coming to visit you one day. whether you are in MI, or somewhere in Canada :)

for an english lass, mercurycirce

emily is also someone i don't feel that i know extremely well but by goodness, i hope i get to know her better -- even better if i decide to move to england for awhile and we get to hang out ! we have loads of similar interests {i think i should write you a letter sometime !} and she is just a big sweetheart, whom i think would be awesome to spend time with. i feel like i can relate to many of her entries, she writes wonderful fanfic, and has a brilliant imagination ! i have a lot of respect for this girl ♥

for my australian belly-dancer/photographer, moonborn

aphie has a pure heart of gold and in 2005 {if i don't go back overseas}, i WILL go to wollongong to visit her !! i love this girl so much. she has been with me through thick and thin and is just so amazing and true. she is responsible for my lush addiction, by the way ^^ seriously though, this girl is so creative and inspiring, determined and honest. i adore talking to her on the phone and i am just so blessed to know this beautiful girl. i hope one day she goes back to bellydancing and continues to do the things that make her happy and allow her to express herself freely, because she deserves pure happiness.
butterfly girl : where she goes when she

ready to order !

i really need to invest in a long armed stapler.

i was able to photocopy enough pages for 28 zines this afternoon at office works but goodness, cutting and collating them all is going to be a task ! note to self: writing the zine is only half of the process. on monday i think i am going to hijack the big work stapler and guillotine (and possibly the photocopier as well, just for a little while) to make up some more zines but i just couldn't wait any longer...

ta da ! winterspark zine, issue #1 "soulbreaking" is ready for order !

{i had to hold down the cover since it's not stapled yet ^^}

Collapse )

44 pages, quarter size, vellum cover. text heavy, black & white photographs and coloured insert of my art(ish) journal. an introduction to this stargirl who will hopefully continue to write zines (depending on whether the general consensus is that this one is shite or not ^^). personal essays and narratives, a glance back on the 24 years that have led me to be who i am today and what i believe in. fiction and random snippets, this is a completely honest perspective about inner strength, determination and positivity. the theme? the soul is never broken.

this zine is $ 2.50 postage paid within australia, $ 3.80 postage paid for overseas. if i'm sending you a christmas card {ie, if you're on my lj list !}, it's only $ 3.00 for overseas buyers because it'll only cost a bit extra to put the zine in with the card (unfortunately i don't think i can disguise it as being a "card only" and send it for $ 1.00!) i accept PayPal (preferred for overseas buyers) and concealed cash in either US or AU currency. PayPal payments are in US$ regardless of where you're from. if you're a regular penpal of mine, you'll get a copy for free {if you're not sure if i'm going to send you one, just leave a note here and i'll let you know !}. i'll be sending out consideration copies to distros when i get a bit organised as well, but i am really interested to hear what you guys think about this one, if you have the time ?

i'll keep running off copies of this for as long as there might be interest so if you can't buy it now that's fine, it'll be around for awhile ^^

hmm, this is weird pimping this. also i am actually pretty sick of this zine and am unsure whether i actually like it or not ^^ i need a fresh perspective !

so, $ 2.50 within Aust, $ 3.80 overseas, $ 3.00 overseas with christmas card (AU buyers with christmas card are no extra).

zine trades are good too, but email me first and we'll work it out ^^
