Giveaway #20: Good to Know zines set

Oh I know that Tuesday went and passed. And there wasn’t supposed to be a giveaway this week because I’m trying to finish up the second installment of the Etsy recap (the first one is here).

But then again I thought I shouldn’t let you all go off without at least a prospect of owning something lovely, so I’m putting up a giveaway for a complete set of Good to Know zines (yes, issues #1 through to #5!) to ONE lucky commenter.

Just comment on this post by 21st October and one of you will get a very hefty package of zines that’s chock full of advice + inspirations for creatives peeps! (If you already own some of the zines, then we can exchange them for future issues – I’m totally cool with that.)

UPDATE: Commenting has now closed, thanks for participating!

  25. Lilly Blue says:

    with a world full of mountains to climb and oceans of loss and days in solitude with only our thoughts, it is a flood of delight to find that somewhere in a land far away someone is saying “hello, i see you, have a gift, and and some inspiration, and some help to realize your dreams.” Pikaland is a field of red wild flowers like that time on a small Greek Island when I felt so free. Pikaland is the buzz of walking through Chelsea in NY stumbling on artists up stairwells and down old bricked alleyways. Pikaland is where I come to breathe, to inhale, to relish the small doodled truths pouring out of the hearts of artists. Thank you. Thank you ever so much. x x x
