sometimes you are assembling zines and you end up with two extra pages that don't equal one piece of paper and you have no idea how because all the zines are complete.

Busy Weekends: Love Notes

My shop started with the concept of spreading creativity and sharing my stories. I'm a correspondent and a mail artist and I wanted to make a place where I could share my love of letters and encourage others to write! Seasonally, you might find holiday-specific mail art items for sale and the rest of the time I might offer envelope packs and kits designed for making your mail (and other paper craft) beautiful.

I thrive on encouraging the creative bug in others, not just by example but through inspiration. You will find creative kits in my shop that are designed to help you find inspiration in new ways. They're perfect if you know you want to create but you don't know where to start-- or if you're just looking for new tools and supplies!

In addition, I also write zines and create mixed media art, which will be available for purchase as supplies last! This is the home of Creativity for Introverts, a self-care zine series addressing different energy levels in creatives. If you would like an issue that you don't see listed, contact me directly! hello [!at] busyweekends.com

Thank you for visiting, please don't hesitate to get in touch!

Thank you for your interest in Busy Weekends! This shop is part of my creative story, and I am thankful that you are interested in making my art a part of yours.

Whether the theme is creativity, pick-me-up, or otherwise, I am always excited to dive in and see what I can create. I hope that you will find the items you purchase to be useful and fun!

I've fallen in love with the world of zines, so you will also find them for sale here. Busy Weekends is the home of the Letters to My Therapist perzine series (http://zinewiki.com/Letters_to_My_Therapist) and Creativity for Introverts. I will continue to find ways to share my story and help you to improve yours.
