I Have a Romance with ACEOs

I have been on a romance kick lately showing romance through photography at my personal blog. Now, all of my photography prints are available as ACEOs.

Let me back track a little. I started out doing ACEOs as a mixed media artist primarily and then expanded into doing some painting, but I feel I have finally found my niche with photography. It just gradually took a hold of me and that was it. So now my main focus is photography and when I buy photography it is always an ACEO.

I am an avid collector. I own between 150 and 200 ACEOs at the moment. I think one of the biggest draws for me is that they are so easy to collect and do not require a lot of wall space. In addition, there are so many ways to display them.

Albums (all shapes and sizes)
Miniature plate holders (to sit them around on tables in groups)
Magnetic frames for the fridge and for metallic bulletin boards
Hangers for knobs on furniture and even walls
An ACEO tree...what is that you ask? Find a branch outside and bring it indoors and fill it with ACEOs.

One of the things I love to do with my ACEOs is to buy seasonal ones. I decorate my house with them for the appropriate season. I just put away my Halloween ones and out come my Thanksgiving ones, then Christmas, then Valentine’s, then July 4th and so on. It is much easier than hanging out seasonal flags or changing clothes on a goose sitting on the front porch. LOL

And, I will always collect my cat ACEOs. I am cat lover from way back. Another favorite thing for me to collect are animals in general and flowers. :)

I love earrings too, but that is another story and another collection....LOL
