I bundled the bundle alone this month for the first time since I became mailer, to practice good social distancing, and to keep Ivan safe from my school-aged children. It was lonely, and took so long. I hope the bundle will be a warm source of friendship to you in these strange times.
I'm going to fake homeschool the kids for a couple weeks. Their schools are closed now. I went to the library on the eve of its closure and checked out a gigantic stack of books for me and them, but we all already feel housebound and cantankerous with each other. Hopefully we'll settle in to a kind of routine in the days to come.
There are terrific postcards included in the bundle. Let's use them to keep in touch!
Take care and be well, Heather
Amateur journalism is a unique activity. Amateur journalists publish journals on paper & online & come from many perspectives: from deluxe letterpress printed journals, to Xeroxed newsletters, to artistically designed cards and ephemera. We embrace the spirit of being amateurs – loving what we do for pure joy and not financial gain – while creating top quality journals, zines, and homemade publications.
