...know when to hold 'em, know when to fold 'em...

MixtapeZINE is wrapping up!

…You got to know when to hold 'em, know when to fold 'em,
Know when to walk away …
Kenny Rogers- “The Gambler” (kootoyoo xx)

After taking a long time to think about things and after talking to people close to us, we have decided to finish up the printed version of mixtapezine this October 2010.
What began as a cool little idea early 2007 grew and grew and grew and grew. It has become so much more than we ever anticipated. That is because of the craft community that embraced mixtape with open arms.

mixtape has been a labour of love from the get go and has been worth every single minute that has been pored into it over the past 3 years.
With a new baby on board in our household and the plethora of crafty goodness EVERYWHERE now – we have decided to go out on a HIGH!

Issue 13 will be out August 16 (FINALLY) thanks to everyone for your patience on this issue (it’s been a tough one).
Issue 14 out October 18 will be our last printed issue and
Issue 15 out Dec 6 will be a MEGA last issue ever of mixtape – in a PDF version only.

This is such a sad and yet exciting time - I have poured my heart & soul into mixtape and have learn't so much along the way.  
I will be contacting all subscribers individually – please feel free to email me directly with any questions.

This is not the end for the mixtape brand – we have a few things in the planning stage for 2011.
