I participated in a swap just a little while ago, finally got a good picture of the item-in-question. Two sweet little green hair pins I just as easily could have had when I was 6 (I vaguely remember a green wool sweater that could have had these buttons...)! : ) Thank you twiddledee! They are gorgeous.

As predicted, a little mailing was the perfect cure for my printing frustrations yesterday. Just sit me down at my desk with some ribbon and tissue paper and I'll be right as rain in no time!

Today has been dedicated to arranging some space in my "studio" area to actually fit the way I use the space. Otherwise it is just a sea of piles scattered around the floor, scissors, CDs, rulers and photocopies intermingling about. My poor paint brushes are giving me pout-y-lip too. I found a couple of sketches from last year last night (impetus for the major cleaning effort) that I am still very fond of. If the Gocco and watercolors rumble later tonight... my money is on the watercolors.

HI! I just found your blog through your Etsy shop. I absolutely adore your illustrations! <3
I have been interested in trying my hand a Gocco myself, but don't know where to get one.

Wow, thank you! That is so sweet! We have a big Gocco, the little ones seem to be better for ink distribution. Etsy has a wonderful Gocco forum, and under "enjoy links" in this-here blog you can look at buying a Gocco with the Paper Source link. They are terrific. Have fun with it! : )
