Make. What was the last thing you made? What materials did you use? Is there something you want to make, but you need to clear some time for it?
The last thing I made was my zine, Places & Things. It’s pretty bare bones as far as zines go – mostly text cut up and pasted down. I also printed out a few photos to break up some of the words. The cover is composed of various vintage Greek postal stamps. Andrew bought me a bunch from the Sunday flea market in Monastiraki when we were in Athens and I meant to use them for other crafty projects, but so far they’ve only made it as far as my zine. (Would you like a copy of it? Why not order it?)
As for what I’m going to make next, the truth is that I want to focus my making-things energy on getting my novel draft up to snuff. That and some Christmas cookies. I really want to do some good Christmas baking this year.
P.S. It’s nice to have a non-draining prompt like this on my first day of a new job. My brain feels a little stuffed with cotton, so I’m just going to end this now and go out into the first Montreal snowstorm to hang out with my girlfriends.
