Ever read an entire blog from start to finish? That’s what I did with Midge’s blog: Modern Girl Blitz. I love a blog with lots of non-cookie cutter fashion (I’m so sick of fashion bloggers who are obsessed with ModCloth. Why am I reading your blog if you’re just one big advertisement?) and lots of DIY posts. After I finished reading all of Modern Girl Blitz and started shaking from withdrawal, I noticed she had some Etsy shops. Score.

Zines: Stigma: Bodies and Joy is DIY

The whole to-do.

Zines

Zines: Stigma: Bodies and Joy is DIY

Buttons! Zines! The dream of the 90s is alive in my life.

I was wearing my tiny, pink feminist pin today in Arts and Crafts. Seeing it, a teen said:

“OMG. You’re a feminist? WHAT’S A FEMINIST?”

Me: “Part of it is wanting men and women to have equal treatment” 

Teen: “Oh. I’m a feminist”

Best pin ever. Covert education in action.
