I went there.
Often a taboo topic, I couldn't help but create a card after hearing Rupi Kaur talk on Triple J. Rupi spoke about how she posted a picture of herself in track pants lying down showing a period mark on instagram and later instagram took it down. This was all part of Rupi's uni assignment to visually show a taboo in society without using words. I think she nailed this one.
It's true, periods ain't pretty, they suck, it hurts, it's expensive and we go through it every month. It's normal.... I think it would be much more fun if we got a special prize in every tampon box we bought. To periods and cramps! Or as, Rupi would say, "to bleeding each month to help make humankind a possibility. "

All my cards are hand drawn and printed on recycled paper. Blank on the inside and packaged with an envelope and plastic slip
