Last fall I was obsessed with getting a Print Gocco. I wanted one really really bad but I held back because I couldn't justify its rather pricey cost. However my lack of Gocco did not diminish my want for one and Mr. T quickly grew tired of the endless Gocco rants. It was "Print Gocco this, and Print Gocco that" and "if I only had a Print Gocco I could..." So imagine my glee when I discovered a Gocco of my very own under the Christmas tree!!
Well its now April and my Gocco has been sitting in the corner of our bedroom for over 3 months collecting dust. The problem with me and obsessions is that once they're realized all interest goes "poof!" out the window. So to try and redeem myself a bit, and to motivate me to get off my okole and bus' that Gocco out of its box, I was wondering if anyone would be interested in a Post Card swap.
Here's what I'm thinking: the swap would involve mailing craft related post cards to 10 other people. The cards can be 1) hand made, 2) collages, 3) photographs of a completed project (softie, sewing, knitting, etc.), 3) copies of an illustration /picture/painting you made, 4) instructions for a craft project or 5) even something Print Gocco'd! Sort of like Artist Trading Cards but craft related and bigger in size. Cards should be post card size (3.5"x5" to 4.25" x 6"), printed on cardstock and include the name of your blog somewhere on the card. Any other suggestions?
This is of course totally self serving because a) it will motivate me to use my Gocco, b) I'll have some cards to put up on my inspiration board, and c) I love snail mail : ) ! So if you're interested, leave me a comment or send me an email and if I get enough responses I'll post more details tomorrow. And if I get no response and this sounds like the worst idea ever, my poor Gocco may spend another 3 months gathering dust in the corner.
