Goccoing the walls of my apartment

Crafty Jewelry Hanging project

I would if I could. Instead last night I made a thing to hang my jewelry on. I just used a sheet of black foamcore, cup hooks and some mirrors from Ikea. And of course Gold Gocco Ink. I think I'm in love with Riso's metallics.

I'm pretty happy with how it turned out. It seems like everywhere you turn there's another article about crafty cool looking jewelry storage. This was somewhat influenced by that, but I think it turned out pretty unique!

The shape I printed with was derived from a pattern (also in black & gold) that I found on a paper I used for some decor above my desk. Yeah, that was another big recent accomplishment.I cleaned and organized my space and actually put up some nice looking stuff above my desk!

Now I just need to try to stay organized.

P.S. I am playing with the idea of having a regular blog schedule, meaning posting certain topics on certain days of the week. I've got a plan of action blog schedule up on the left, and I will see how that goes.

I love what you're doing with your Gocco! My Gocco is suffocating in her box..."let me out!" I guess I'm afraid to tackle a new hobby, so I'll live vicariously through you for now :) I can't wait to see how the "subject a day" thing works out...don't know if I could do it. hehe

Thanks! Yeah, I dunno if I can keep up with it either, but I'm gonna try. :)
