I can’t believe 3 weeks have flown by since the SF ZineFest! It seems like it was yesterday. Part of that feeling is probably because SF really is a “little city, big town” and people I met at ZineFest I’ve seen around (like Ms. Stephanie of nerdJERK at the J-Pop Summit at Japantown a couple weeks ago) or who are lovely and keep in touch – like this fun story I have about the wonderful folks of Beasts of Eden.
Tia and Julia had a sweet little table at ZineFest and I definitely visited them a couple of times. Their whimsical flowers and playful animals are so colorful and touchable. I am in love with their giant squid! We did a trade and they also had the great idea to do a drawing to promote the opening of their Etsy shop and their website. I put my business card in their knitted venus fly trap friend’s mouth, and low and behold – a couple weeks later I got an email saying I had won! You can even see the drawing video on the Beasts of Eden website. I got to pick out an item from their Etsy shop for my very own.
When it arrived, I did a little photo shoot to celebrate. I think I’m going to name him Herb. He is bright pink, pose-able, came with a beautiful postcard from the makers, and has joined my tiny pink elephant parade!
Thanks Julia & Tia // Beasts of Eden! <3
