Welcome to my Blog!



Hello and welcome to my blog!
I am building this blog to keep a journal of the arts & crafts all around me: where I live, with my friends, and yeah... in the old sketchbook too. I am still getting the hang of using the digital camera, as well as inevitable blunders in grammar, so please be patient while I figure out posting.

This week marks a bunch of starts for me. To begin with, I have finally set up an Etsy shop! My sister's trail-blazing efforts on that one have had me dreaming Etsy dreams for almost a year now.
My little OUOU shop should be chugging right along in due time, now that I made up my mind about its naming (sheesh!). Also, today was my first attempt with the Gocco!!! I first read about Gocco printmaking in Craft magazine and it was love at first sight. My sister got her hands on one back in the spring and today she showed me the ropes. Not only was I gushing with printmaker-ey joy, but we made a run of cards using this super silly design of mine picturing a couple of the happiest little devils you've ever seen, so I may still be writing because of the sheer adrenaline of it all.

The fish design is one of my sister's, we were having so much fun making cards we decided to practice on fabric for a while. I am so happy to be going through these creative explorations with my sister by my side. Who knows what the rest of the week will hold!
