Before last years event, approved I had dreams of making the 24 Hour Zine Thing 2012 the best year yet. And then life happened. Which brings us to one year later, thumb with a wrap-up post of the 2012 event being posted in mid-July and participant pins just now being sent out.

Which brings us to an apology. The 24 Hour Zine Thing has been held each July since 2005, treatment and since 2008 I have had the honor of receiving tons of 24 hour zines and getting to know each of you through handwritten letters, e-mails, Facebook posts and tweets. The sweet comments and little “thanks for everything you do!”s attached to your zines make hosting this event worthwhile, and I want to continue to make this event the best that it can be. Over the next few weeks I will be rolling out some new updates and surprises to make the 24 Hour Zine Thing even better!

And with that said, let’s wrap up 2012!

Congratulations to all 32 brave participants who completed a zine, from start to finish, in only 24 hours for the 2012 event! Here is a listing of all the zines received (and links to their blogs, Etsy shops, etc.):
