Well hello!! We are super excited to announce that we have finally released Issue 7 of Hundreds and Thousands mag! This 32 page colourful zine is full of yummy family recipes, simple craft projects, articles and interviews by a landscape architect, teenage sisters making music, a couple who recently eloped in the country side and heaps more!!!! Oh, and of course it features a super cute front cover, don't you think?
To order yourself a copy head to our online store. 
NB-After 2 years of using the online store storenvy, we have finally opened a Big Cartel store instead. Storenvy on the whole was pretty great, but being an American site and an Australian made magazine  we felt we had confused one too many customers and thought it was time to sell through an Aussie site in Aussie dollars. Of course, we are still posting orders out all over the world, so don't let the change of store worry you! If anything, it's now easier to order our mag (and makes a bit more sense!!)

Thanks once again for you support...and HOORAY FOR HANDMADE!

Love Mezz and Taz xx

Issue 4 "A Handmade Christmas" OUT NOW!!!!

Exciting news!

Our super special Christmas Issue is now available for you to order! 
Filled with festive crafts, recipes, music, stories and more, Issue 4 is titled "a handmade magazine, celebrating a handmade Christmas".... because we believe that Christmas shouldn't be about consumerism, but instead it can be celebrated beautifully and simply when we make it about handmade, simple traditions and thinking about others. 
We have made this Issue with the hope that it will encourage us all to rethink how we celebrate Christmas. We have had some fabulous contributions from crafters, musicians, and writers near and far who celebrate Christmas in their own unique way. We have kept many of our regular features, while making a few changes to suit our Christmas theme. 
We do hope you enjoy reading it as much as we have had making it. We both love Christmas, and so this particular issue holds a special place in our hearts!! To order your copy, head to our online store today (we tend to sell out pretty fast these days!!) 
Love Mezz and Taz xo
