Would you like to lend/receive a helping hand? Give a present (perhaps to yourself) that gives back?
I have always wanted to get better at:
. hemming pants and making old clothing new (p. 120, “Altered States”)
. constructing home-made gifts
. managing my finances (p. “Girls Just Wanna Have Funds”)
. hosting parties (p. 240)
. doing my laundry
. taking a vacation (p. 312, “There She Goes”)
…until the “Bust DIY Guide to Life” appeared, I hadn’t seen a publication that compiled all of the above topics and menneh-menneh more into one handy-dandy volume. This is the must-have gift item for the college aged (21+beyond) DIYer/mover&shaker trying to make it as a grown up person with grown-up responsibilities & a good sense of play.
Join us as we celebrate the premiere of Los Angeles' new quarterly literary magazine, Slake! Founded by former LA Weekly editors Joe
Donnelly and Laurie Ochoa, Slake proves that print isn't dead by offering a beautiful, collectible volume of art, writing, and photography. Some of LA's finest authors and artists are included in the first issue, and five of them will be here to help us launch it: Jervey Tervalon, Michelle Huneven, Jerry Stahl, Jonathan Gold, and Erica Zora Wrightson will all be speaking about their contributions.
