At the moment everything is a haze of exams and end-of-sixth form things and summer plans, so if I haven’t replied to your emails I am very very sorry and I will soon!

Does anyone want a free zine/arty creation? I have so much handmade and glittered paraphernalia lying around my room….and I have a lot of loose change from busking last weekend to fork out for postage. Email me while this generosity lasts: TheZinepallingProject@gmail.com
