Hand Made Joy

It came from over the sea through the postal service

Hand made joy

I spend a lot of time window shoppng on Etsy. Normally for t-shirts involving bicycles or birds. Sometime bicycles and birds. I’ve been having a bit of a zine binge lately and just got these off of Aijung Kim (who I think is based in Richmond, Virginia). I love the way these zines turn something personal, an absent minded recognition noted in a pocketbook,then redrawn and considered and illustrated later. Brings a whole new life to it all.

I am admittedly a bit giddy for the hand made but when they are diary-esque based like these (even the poetry zines have that kind of feel) they become really touching, comforting even. Check out her Etsy shop here
