Hey zine-stars! We share our zines and zine triumphs and zine woes here on WMZ, but most of us aren’t zining 100% of the time.
I what to know what other things you like! What do you get up to outside of zining?
I’ve recently taken up a craft called quilling. It’s a paper art. I’d never heard of quilling before, but I found a book out by the trash and thought, hrm, I could do that. I’m still pretty new at it, but I’ve made a few fun projects. Below are links to photos of a couple of them.
If you want to upload a photo to this and there’s not already a link to it, here is Darkroomist’s handy how-to:
“You can upload a photo in your activity stream (under your profile, activity). If you want to use an image elsewhere on the site you can right click an image uploaded this way and use that link in groups or forums.”
That’s cool@ I have seen this before but didn’t realize quilling was the name of this craft.
I do lots of crafty things but never complete anything. I have 3 plastic totes FULL of wallpaper samples I say I’m going to use for stuff but don’t. I have been the lucky winner of 2 large plastic totes of vintage fabric that I want to use but can’t commit. I mean it’s vintage, what if I waste it?!
PS Freecycle.org is the best for free crafting supplies to hoard.
Besides hording crafting supplies, I like to play video games. I’m kind of pro at that. Does that count?!
I’m a fine artist. I do portraits for people.
Sometimes I make jewlery.
The most interesting thing about me might be my pets. I have 21 tarantula, 3 scorpion, 3 snakes, 4 parakeets, 1 frog and one Savannah monitor. I love each and every one of them.
