December 2008 I made a list of goals for my 2009 year. This year I didn't accomplish as much as I would have liked (such as going to Italy and Washington DC) but I broke out my new Gocco machine to attempt to make homemade holiday cards (goal number nine on my list). After my first run on this discontinued Japanese screen printing machine I had immediately fallen in love. I wish I got my hands on Gocoo 10 years ago when the supplies were abundant and cheap because I know I would have been making all sorts of paper things left and right. My first run turned out very sparse and basic but I hope that I will have something more extravagant and elegant by my third run.
