Zine fest today was a success! Big thank you to everyone who came out to peruse and support the local artists (myself included), and also to everyone who bought from my table. Definitely feeling super inspired and ready to create more!
(p.s. if you couldn't make it or if you want more space craft goodies, check out my etsy shop! also, to subscribe to future updates, either use the RSS feed on this blog, or follow me on twitter!)
It's summer, and you know what that means?? Time to work on my creative projects + hobbies! I've been working on lots of new things, including celestial earrings and my first zines. Shown here are moon earrings (modeled by my lovely lunar astronomer friend Chiara) and Enceladus (modeled by yet another cool astronomer friend, Miriam) - there's also a sneak peek of my zine, Femme in STEM! Check it all out on my Etsy shop.
Last week, I got to visit Canada for the first time to attend the 2018 Dunlap Institute summer school for astronomical instrumentation at University of Toronto. I learned about everything from radio interferometry to the nitty gritty details of how CCDs work, and met a bunch of great people along the way. HIGHLY recommend this program to anyone interested in doing instrumentation!!
