Spring Sememseter Complete.

Woo. I just finished taking my last final exam. It was the hardest one and it was in a class that I am taking for the second time. I am extremely nervous to find out my grade and to see if I passed (this time around!). I have all A's and then whatever I get in this class (which I am just hoping to pass!). I am so glad its over with. This semester, as they all do, went by very fast. I have one more year to go and I am running on E!

On a good note... My hubby and I order Dreamweaver (a professional website building software) and it should be coming in the mail any day. I cannot wait to get a real site up for my invitations! I think that once I get it up and running, my business will boom!

I have 3 more mother's day cards left and I am hoping that they will sell before mother's day arrives so I don't have to keep them sitting around for another year! I sold one of my favorite mother's day cards last night.
Some ANNOUNCEMENTS:
1. I will stop taking custom Mother's day requests on May 5th! (Mother's day is May 11th)

2. Graduation promo starts April 27th!! Look out for new graduation items (cards, announcements, invites)
3. Web site should be up and running by the end of May

4. Wedding season starts in June, get your requests in early!
5. Don't forget that Father's day is just as important as Mother's day!! (June 15th)

6. I have new Bat/Bar Mitzvah and Baptism/Christening Invitations!

My First Gocco!!!




I did it! I did it!!

I had to wait AN ENTIRE WEEK before I was allowed to open my Gocco printer box! I forced myself to wait because I had exams to study for this week and I knew that once the box was opened, there would be no studying! So today is Friday and i am free to do as I please! I created my first Gocco art! My mom wanted me to create "Hello" cards with butterflies on them for my grandmother. So I used photoshop and created my master copy, I then printed it out on an inkjet printer, and outlined it using a carbon pen. My first run of course was a failure... But that was because I put the ink on the wrong side of the screen! (Silly Me!)...Once I realized what an idiot I was, I got it right (after wasting lots of ink, a B6 screen, and two bulbs)! I then created 75 cute cards within 30 minutes! I really love the outcome of these cards. But now I can't do anymore because I need to purchase more bulbs and screens! I also cannot save my burned screen because I do not have the proper cleaning supplies to wipe the ink of for future use. But that's okay... I know for next time! I LOVE MY GOCCO! You will see many many more gocco creations soon!
On an EVEN GREATER note....
I finally settled on a printer to create wedding invitations and such. I purchased the Canon Pro9000 from Amazon. I read all 102 reviews and compared it to the EpsonR1800. It was a tough decision, but I landed on Canon. As soon as it arrives, i will have another toy to play with!! hopefully the cost of both of these printers will pay itself off!!
