Know any queer rural zines? x-post (if this doesn't belong/breaks rules, sorry; tell me&I'll delete)

Sorry if this doesn't belong here, but my friend Jenna (a.k.a. trashcan_chica) needs some help:

"does anyone know of any queer zines about living in rural areas or going to rural areas?

any help/pointing in the right direction would be amazing. i went through the whole Queer Zine Archive and couldn't really find anything.

thanks!
jenna b

p.s. i just got a wordpress site, sassyfrasscircus.com!"


Her (AIM) away message also says: "is looking for zines about/by members of radical queer ANTI-URBAN communities, so if you know of any..."

So please comment if you can help at all; thanks. :]

Drum Roll!

I’m also finally ready to show before-and-after pics of the bathroom! I’m still not finished affixing stars to the ceiling but could be doing that for years to come given the current rate or progress. Ugh! It’s slow going. But it looks cool. This is the first time that I’ve gotten all the photos together into one folder. It’s really just not the same room at all. I can hardly even remember the old room now.

Craft Studio

As I’ve been ranting about all my various home remodeling projects, I’ve totally forgotten to post before-and-after pics of my craft studio. This room was formerly a very dark red. In fact, the before photos make the room appear much brighter than it was. It was dark and depressing. I wanted to covert the room to a brighter color and also install shelves on the wall opposite my computer equipment. This is also the first time my beloved Krishna prints have been framed and displayed. I have so much art and home décor items, I could change rooms around a hundred times and never have to buy anything but paint!

The room still needs a bit of work. The empty shelves will be populated by all of my craft and art supplies at some point soon. I want to make special boxes for that stuff. Also, I’m purposefully NOT showing the floor in the after photos. I tore up the ratty carpet in here and just have exposed pine planks. I’m not exactly sure what I’m doing with the floor yet. So, here you go!

This is what the room looked like before.

This is the new room.

Hello Craft Divas!

Can anyone think of a way and/or point me toward a machine with which one could punch holes in paper like a traditional hole punch but further into the paper than a traditional handheld hole puncher would reach? I’m thinking of making a paper stencil and hole punching a design on it. I’m stumped as to how I’m going to get perfectly sized holes punched into the paper. Any advice is appreciated!
