All About ACEOs

ACEOs and what exactly are they?

Have you ever seen a baseball card? To answer the questions; ACEOs are collectibles much like baseball cards are to baseball fans. ACEO appeals to everyone because they are truly affordable, original works of art and they are available in every theme under the sun. Wherever your heart is, there is someone out there right now, no doubt creating a tiny work of art. If you are searching for a particular theme and just haven’t found it yet, request it and you will have so many choices to choose from. Why is that? ACEOs are fun to create, that’s why.

What can you do with an ACEO? You can easily slip them into a greeting card and mail your favorite person an original work of art. You can frame them and hang them on your Christmas tree. You can put them in an album on your coffee table for your guests. They make a great conversation starter. Purchase a baseball card frame at stores like Michaels Craft or other stores that carry frames, and change out the cards depending on the season of the year.

Lately I have had some success doing the "12 Days of Christmas" theme currently on Ebay.

I am still working on the last 4 days of Christmas, and since ACEOs are so very tiny it is a challenge to figure out how to fit the Lords a leaping, and 12 drummers, although I do have a few unique ideas.

Above is my version of "Six Geese a-laying"

Merry Christmas, and remember "It is what it IS - CHRISTMAS"

Great Card, I love it. You should post the whole series when you are done.
