Except it was all Japanese for a while there. The World of Gocco Printery has, until this week, steeped itself in mystery.

In the end, I watched a YouTube how to or two and went for the ‘winging it’. Of course I’m probably doing it all wrong, but this stuff is really, really, obsessively, addictively, ooooh, maybe-just-one-more-then, FUN. Even with a small, non-napping child sitting on my head, I managed to create thirty cards, on lovely rich cottony Fabriano paper, for a bug-loving birthday kid. The bug-loving birthday kid needs but one. There is now a necessity to meet 29 other bug-loving birthdaying kids.
