I'm not sure when bean bag games went out of vogue, but if you'd like to play a game of "scare the ghost", I'll be sure to have enough juice and cookies for twenty people.

Check out my Flickr stream for close-ups and for the things I left out! These lil' zines are blowing my mind!

What's inspiring YOU?
