Let Me Spell It Out...

Sometimes you buy something and the moment you leave the store you're hit with that horrible feeling of buyers remorse. I can safely say that when I bought this Lightbox from Typo, I did not experience that at all.

In fact, the words above accurately describe how I feel about my new light box.

So far it has come in super handy as a blog/photo prop, fun personalised welcome sign for when people have come to stay with us, and just general display of silly words and messages.

An A3 sized version recently appeared on the Typo website, and although I am tempted, I am strongly resisting the urge. Seriously, I would have nowhere to put it.

Let me know what would you use the lightbox for?

It's Business Time!

Guess what arrived in the post today?... My business cards from!

It turns out, you kind of need business cards here in Hong Kong, because:
1) You never know who you're going to meet
2) Everyone else seems to have them.
There's been a few awkward moments when someone has extended a business card to me and I haven't had one to give back. Those moments will now be a thing of the past.

I had been meaning to order these for a while now, and when a free shipping code landed in my inbox, I thought - BINGO!

I opted for one of the existing Moo designs as the last time I ordered stickers from Moo using my own design, I got the sizing all wrong and they came out a little fuzzy. Oops. So I thought it would be best to play it safe this time round and figured the 'Hello' theme tied in with my Hello Jesso blog.

Anyway, that's all I wanted to share. It's always nice when you get something fun in the mail.

Let me know if you have any great networking tips in the comments below.

Open For Business

It's up and running now. Finally.
After signing up way back in March, I've finally managed to put some items in it for sale.

It's only two items, so the store still looks kinda bare, but don't worry I am on the case!

Pop back to My Etsy every now and again to see what's new.

See you then!

I am slightly obsessed with my Gocco, and so last night I decided to play with it some more.

After my simple first attempt and test prints , I thought I'd try something a little more girly and detailed this time.

So after much umming and ahhing, I opted for this floral print to go on some grey note cards with matching envelopes. The card looks white in the pics, but trust me, it is grey)

They are not perfect, but all in all I am quite pleased with them. I had a few issues with the ink blotting at the edges of the card, but oh well. It's all trial an error, and a learning curve. As they say practice makes perfect.

Need to get more bulbs and screens.

Did I mention the rather scary warning that features on the side of the bulb packet?... Something about the bulbs containing chemicals that may cause cancer, reproductive harm and birth defects. Eeeek! That can't be good at all.

Gocco-ing Mad

The severe lack of posting has been due to the fact that I am obsessed with my Gocco PG-11 printer.
Shopping for clothes and other stuff has now been replaced by wanting and craving Gocco accessories and ink. I want it all!

Anyhoo... just to show you I haven't been sitting on my laurels here is my handy work.

*Customised Moleskine notebooks

*Plain greeting cards

*Splodge card

As you can see, I only did one design - a fountain pen - as my tester. As it turned out quite well (I think), my mind is now brimming with ideas.

Have a look at all the other Gocco-ers out there and their wonderful creations.

I'm off to Gocco some more.
