long arm stapler love ;)  
inspiration always strikes on a sunday night; tonight it's craving to design a website. faerywinged.org is long overdue, and i've barely designed a thing. there's a few layouts i've started and discarded, perhaps i should look at getting one of those up, even if just for the short term. i need to design a zine site for winterspark; it'll help with advertising, and then i can look at sending my zine out to more places. i'm having so much fun with my long arm stapler, i think i want to keep making zines just so i can keep using the stapler ;) it's been too long since i've been inspired to work on a webdesign project; i just feel so untalented especially when it comes to photoshop as i've mentioned before, and the use of graphics. i can learn coding well enough; but i'm terrible with images. something new to work on, i suppose. but why must the inpsiration hit on sunday nights? i think the thought of the long week ahead makes the creative urges come out tenfold ;)

&speaking of zines, winterspark 2: wanderlust really is ready for printing now. i'm so excited; i have covers ready, matching staples (haha), and a template that's ready to hit the copiers. when it's in actual zine form, i'll announce (& show photos again) of the finished product, in case anyone might be interested in reading it. i'm thrilled it didn't take 11 months to finish this one, at least; i'm going to try and have the third done by april, at least. i know it's sort of restricting to put a deadline to it; but if i don't, perhaps i'll never finish another whole one. and i'd like to. there's something satisfying about finishing a zine, from the first words typed into publisher, to the book form at the end. maybe it'll be the closest i ever get to being published, but at least i'm trying, i suppose.

wednesday is a public holiday for australia day, and i can't wait. a day off in the middle of the week seems to make facing mondays a little easier for sure.

well at least it would be, if i wasn't so keen to start designing a webpage right now ! grr. heh. okay: must stop being afraid of photoshop, stop procrasting on putting anything into editpad, and start designing things again! a promise to myself.

Yay, I can't wait to start #2. All your talk of zines and the like has got me writing again. Thanks! :)

i've felt so inspired by your work on your zine that i've picked up my zine to start working on it again and i feel more inspired than ever. :D
zines are so much fun when you're inspired.
