The latest

Wow I can't believe it's been a month since I last posted!  I've got to do better.  Anyway, my husband and two children and I just got back from a wonderful vacation out to WI and IL to see family.  I could ramble on and on about our adventures out there but I'm trying to stick to my crafting adventures so here's the latest:

I've told you about ATC's and how much I love creating them.  Artist Trading Cards are 2 1/2" X 3 1/2" and they are made to be traded with other artists.  I trade, or swap, mine on Swap-Bot.  Recently while in IL visiting with my mother-in-law she showed me what she has recently started to collect.  She knew I would be interested because I love to paint.  They are called ACEO's.  I've heard of them and understand that they are like ATC's but I didn't exactly know the difference.  The difference is people pay for ACEO's!  I didn't know people would actually pay money for these little works or art but my mother-in-law does so that got me thinking...hmmm... I could try my hand at that... so right now I'm in the midst of painting ACEO's to sell.  ACEO stands for Artist Cards Editions and Originals.  I have an Etsy store but my mother-in-law buys her's on Ebay so I'm thinking about jumping ship and going over to Ebay.  Another new endeavor for me!
