Happy President's Day! It's a stock market holiday, which means I have the day off. It's pouring rain outside, so I'll be inside working on some fun things, one of which is my new Print Gocco.
I got myself a little treat with my bonus last month. While most of it went to exciting things like bill-paying and car-repairing, I found a print gocco on ebay for a really good price, and snatched it up before anyone else saw it. They've typically been going for well over $100, but I found a slightly used one for $55, and even with the shipping from Japan, it was still well under $100. I tried it out this weekend, and made myself some personalized note cards:
I love the way they came out, and it was so fun to do! To see how this clever little contraption works, here is a good explanation. It's sort of a cross between screenprinting and stamping. I think I'm going to have a lot of fun with it!
My next project here on the farm is going to be a couple of beehives, hence the vintage beehive clipart :o)
