I was a late in catching on that the very quiet toddler was up to no good. Once the damage was done I had to take a photo.

My (early) birthday present! 1 August, 2007

My (early) birthday present!, originally uploaded by hossum possum.

I scored a Gocco on eBay. Well I bid on one and lost, then got contacted by someone that had this one to sell. Technically against eBay rules, but I got a good deal. Not as good as a $15 op shop find I’ve heard some people have got, but I did get a significant discount on the going rate. I love the photo on the box, the girl on the right reminds me of my cousin, pony tail and all.

First Gocco Print Run, originally uploaded by hossum possum.

This was my first run with the Gocco.  It is so easy to use.  Draw up an original; flash it onto a screen; ink it up; and print, print, print.  The peacock didn’t turn out so great, the original stuck to the screen.  I’ve since found out that is because there was too much toner on the original.  I’m looking forward to trying it out again.  I think I’ll do the toddler’s birthday party invitations.

Note re: a peacock production.  Ever since I was little I’ve been making cards for people.  I noticed that bought cards had a logo on the back, like Hallmark or John Sands.  So I made up my own logo to put on the back of my cards.  And so a peacock production was born.
