Love the metaphors Ella!! I’d volunteer but am currently in the wheelhouse and simultaneously fretting about the coal house. If I don’t get down there and start shovelling soon this ship will sink!

Great post Ella! Yes, it does feel like being a captain of ship hehe! I’ve been working on my website too. Yesterday I got lost in the whirlpool of Squarespace templates as I want to change my portfolio to a project based one. By the end of the day I’d not changed anything so I’m going to be more focused today. If you need anymore volunteers to explore your site I’m happy to help. ☺️

Hi Annie! Oh I know that feeling of “I’ll just take a look at my website….oops, a whole day has passed” feeling well! Yes please! I’d love for your feedback on my shop in exchange for a zine! Just send your comments and address to the email in the post! Xx

Love the metaphors Els and I never knew what a wheelhouse was either!! I think if I’d ever thought about it I would’ve guessed some kind of water mill?? Haha so I’m glad to know now! I like the coal shovelling image - especially as it takes place below deck so you really can’t see what your labour is producing!

I know!! Crazy to learn that’s the origin! Weelll, you know word origins aren’t really in my wheelhouse! Ahem!

I’m also happy to volunteer depending on how many you need. I was listening to your studio mate Steve podcast yesterday so would be good for my own research purposes ☺️

I would love to check your website, any preference for desktop and/or mobile?

Btw, I’m not UK based, I can completely understand if the shipping costs for outside UK wasn’t part of your zine offer;)

Both if possible? I’m happy to post to the US if you don’t mind if I do the cheapest option?
