When I first went vegan back in 2011 I used to make big muffin loaves in huge dishes, with blueberries mostly. I hadn't done it in such a long time, so in April I gave it a go with mashed bananas too and it came out really well. I just googled a vegan blueberry muffin recipe and improvised a bit and it was tasty!

FML I simply cannot get these images rotated.

It was Glasgow Zinefest on the May day bank holiday weekend and I had two new zines ready for it, including a split zine with Tukru. I've been confused as to how much I want to continue making perzines but I really enjoyed putting this one together in the end, and wrote a bit about starting a band and playing a gig last year. Sorry I literally CANNOT make this photo rotate!

I also made a mini zine from one A4 piece of paper, about pen pal stories. Some of the content is what I discussed on the OPNLETTERS podcast a while back, but I felt it would be good to make it into a mini zine. Anyway both of my zines are now up on my etsy shop here!

In the workshop space was a printmaking workshop with Paperchase that ran all day and was completely free, so that was pretty ace. You got to make prints with sheets of foam which was a really simple, cheap and fun way to print. I made this print, which I think came out pretty well as it was the first time I had printed in a while and the first time I had tried to use foam.
