it's early saturday morning, and i have to say...i am bursting with excitement. it's like we have been lighting fire crackers in the kitchen...that sort of joy.... but no...what we have been doing is playing with our newest family member. a print gocco.
i bought the gocco off ebay and i was so lucky, when the BIG box arrived ( god i love getting mail) i opened it to find something like gocco heaven. not one but TWO goccos and TWO fabric stampers and heaps of ink and everything else i need. i don't need two of course....but now I can give Veda one to have forever... hopefully they will keep the gocco alive. I need to join the save gocco movement because my goodness....it is sooooooooooooooo fun, sooooooooooo exciting and soooooo addictive. We had the best time printing- after we worked it out. We wasted two bulbs because we had the print facing the glass the first time. oops. And we used the gocco pen to draw our pictures and it worked so so well. Its so much cooler than I imagined. Can you tell Im excited lol.
So Veda has printed a zillion beautiful fairy wrens that she drew. Each time we added different colour ink we got a surprise when we looked at the print. The excitement!!
My girl print was quite boring really he hee.... but the possibility of printing on fabric.....oh goodness...if it works i'm going to seriously burst.
Our Saturday morning has been wonderfulllll- a new little world has opened up.... the only problem is that we have to stop to eat...and that we will soon be out of screens and light bulbs.
And we also now have to leave the house...yes that's right, leave the warm cosy gocco nest...to go to the vet for one of Murrays cows. It has mastitis. And we can't have that can we?
I guess we could get some cardboard to print on while we are in town at the vets? yes...good idea. ok..off we go.............
