Winter's here! What's next

Hello all in!

Shieva, here. Just want to give you the updates and new happenings with C.L.A.P.

First and foremost, thank you to all the amazing supporters that gave their time and money to our kickstarter campaign. You and Ryn and I worked hard to continue to grow the amazing connections C.L.A.P. makes in the Twin Cities community and beyond. If you haven't received your gift in the mail yet, send us a quick email to remind us of our forgetfulness. Things have been busy on this end, so please don't take it to heart. We're still thinking of you.

Second we want to invite each and every one of you to contribute to the Winter 2013 issue coming out next. The theme is Lady (de)Constructed. What does the word "lady" mean to you? Do you use it refer to your girlfriends as a term of friendship and female connection? Do you think of it as an antiquated term? Let us know what you think in words or in visuals, and we'll put your work in our next issue. If you have any ideas for cover art, or know of someone that might be interested, please let us know at Details on contributing can be found on our Contribute page.

Third we will now be selling C.L.A.P. at Blue Moon Coffee Cafe in South Minneapolis on 38th and Lake Street. A big thanks to Jim for helping us make that happen. Blue Moon is right next door to the great mom-and-pop owned record shop Hymie's. Check them both out. A great way to spend an afternoon: peruse the fantastic record selection at Hymie's (perhaps for a holiday gift?) and then refuel at Blue Moon with a delicious coffee (excellent expresso) and pick up the newest issue of C.L.A.P.

Lastly we want to send all of you love and warmth this holiday season. How times flies! It's already close the new year. What are your new year's plans? What are your resolutions for 2014? Let us know in the comments below.

We'll see you soon.

All my best,
Shieva and Ryn
