gocco: holiday card success!

I finally had a successful gocco night! Yippee! and I have to say it was so satisfying. Now I just want to gocco everything!

I made 50 of these darlings because I felt bad wasting the ink. and I don't have 50 people to send them to. So, does anyone want a set? I'm thinking of grouping them in tens, so I'll probably have only 2 full sets to offer. Leave me a comment if your interested.

holiday cards

There are so many unbelievably talented people in this world. It's amazing!

After seeing Nole's Holiday Card Round Up, Part 1 and Holiday Card Round Up, Part 2, I seriously would love/want to own a letterpress. Letterpress cards are just so beautiful.

[[Lucky Bees Press]]

On a side note: I've tried out my new gocco with a holiday card of my own. However, I haven't been too lucky yet with the gocco...some newbie mistakes...some difficulties with the screens...and too oily of ink. I'm going to give it another shot in a few days. Wish me luck! I hope to become a gocco pro in the next month or so.


T and I have been going back and forth about our honeymoon. It's quite frustrating at times.

Do we take a nice honeymoon now, or wait a year? Do we go to a nice warm beach in Mexico, or do we go to Asheville?

1. our priorities and goals will be different once we're married - saving for a house, paying off my car and student loans, etc.
2. enjoying the first week of wedded bliss vacationing away from the real world of atlanta

1. it really just saves us upfront costs, so we don't have to add the expense in addition to the wedding.
2. gives us time to save (but see NOW: 1 for reasons this might be unlikely)
3. have to wait a year

1. warm
2. sunny
3. beach
4. all inclusive
5. adults only
6. all inclusive
7. sort of expensive
8. have to buy plane tickets
9. have to get new passport

1. secluded mountain house
2. mountains
3. deck with private hot tub
4. asheville
5. probably cold
6. have to buy all food
7. less expensive
8. can drive there

What would you do?

motivation...where are you?

These last couple of weeks, I've had no motivation whatsoever. I've been in a little lull with the wedding since I'm at the point where most of our vendors are I'm not sure what all needs to be done anymore. I mean, I know there's a lot to do, but I just don't know where to focus my time.

I honestly get so overwhelmed with all the ideas and inspirations out there that I just don't know where to go with them; and I often feel like my wedding will never compare to all these beautiful weddings out there.

So my New Goals: Focusing solely on MY wedding; regaining motivation; and not looking at as many wedding blogs as I currently do [I get depressed].

Up coming things...
1. Our invitation design
2. Our wedding bands have been ordered and are awaiting pick-up
3. Our engagement session this weekend with the lovely Lisette Price
