This is Sister Diane‘s family’s annual holiday zine, and it is super-interesting (just like all her endeavors, in my opinion!). I’m a huge fan of Diane’s and this zine is a great holiday read, with craft and cooking projects, holiday info and anecdotes, and other non-holiday but interesting articles. The covers are custom-altered with a star cutout and the liner papers are gift wrap that peeks through the hole. Just one of the delights that awaits you in this fun zine! Oh, and did I mention there’s a thread running through the zine that refers to National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation? Oh yeah.
