|What is not to like??? A beautiful, warm sunny day here in SF. And the SF Zine Fest this weekend -- with zines (of course), artistamps, rubber stamps, book-making workshop,|
friendly people -- and a green typewriter to play with.
Who needs Burning Man?
|I love a good work table.....|
|Monica taught us how to make that adorable tiny accordion page book and Dorothy showed us how to make an envelope booklet....|
|Here is the cover -- pretty cool, isn't it? Quite a handy booklet for a mail artist....|
|Mad made SF table -- selling really cool stuff too.....|
|After the workshop, just strolled the isles...lots of great stuff to see and to to buy, if you are so inclined...|
|One room is a zine library. No, you can't check them out but you can sit for as long as you like and read through them.....|
|Buttons -- Bet You Can't Buy Just One!!|
Buttons and artistamps by the fabulous Maureen Forys, book designer of Good Mail Day and Mail/art/Book -- check out
Sorry I didn't get a shot of her artistamps because they were wonderful!
|And what have we here?|
Postal rubber stamps?
Red Letter Day?
Miss Good Mail Day herself?
|The newly launched line of postal rubber stamps, Red Handed Rubber Stamps, by Jennie Hinchcliff|
is here (for all of you who have been asking me where I got the amazingly cool new rubber stamps I have been flaunting.
You can buy the stamps at FLAX, here in San Francisco and the Ink Pad in NYC and
Guadalupe's in Santa Fe. Just google them to find the addresses.
I know both the Ink Pad and Guadalupe's do mail order for those of you who are desperate to get your hands on these fabulous stamps (you know who you are).
And you can check out Red Handed Rubber Stamps right here
|You know we haven't had any food pictures on the blog in a while and you KNOW I am having lunch....so after all the excitement at the Zine Fest I had to go have some lunch -- join me?|
Freshly made and hot and paraded around the restaurant? Who could resist? Not me!
|After all that I had to go home and hang out in my studio for a while and chill out.|
There are just so many fun things to do around it isn't easy to keep up with everything.
(Library Big Book sale in September anybody?)
