New Hobby... some of you might like to do this too

Hi everyone,

We had a discussion about hobbies and crafts a while back. Well, I've discovered something I thought maybe some of you might like to do. They are ACEO's - Art Cards Editions and Originals. These are small trading card size peices of art - 2.5" x 3.5". Some people use colored pencil or paint or even do collage. They actully sell on ebay and I've sold three already! They are so small that it is easier to spend a little time doing and I thought maybe some of you who are bed ridden might even be able to create some.

There is a discussion on ebay for ACEO's if you want to learn more or you can just ask me - I'm still learning though.

Here are the links to a few of my cards that are listed now. I'm NOT looking for you all to bid - just want you to see what I'm doing and you can also search Ebay for ACEO to see the kinds of things others do.

Nina, Michelle or Melissa - if it's not OK to put these links on, then please feel free to edit this post.

Roselover!!!!

I love those sooooo much! I want one! That however, requires that I figure out how to use ebay! I am currently on a big butterfly kick lately! :D They give me hope.

These are GORGEOUS! You have a gift.

Thank you so much for sharing.

And, so good to see you posting when you can...I miss you! :)

Thanks everyone! I hope someone else can learn from this and enjoy making them too! I'm loving it!

I just did three new cards the last two days. They are rose paintings and then cut apart like shattered glass and glued back onto a card with embossing inbetween. I'm calling them "Shattered Love", "Shattered Peace" and "Shattered Innocence". My hubby says someone is going to think I'm depressed. I told him "No cause I ususally paint butterflies and stuff. It's just an artsy idea". He just laughed... we laugh a lot in our house! :-)

Love Roselover

rose -

they're beautiful! thanks for sharing them with us.

it's great you & the hubby are able to laugh...laughter never hurt anyone, ya know (unless you've just had surgery & have stitches on your belly...not that i'm speaking from experience or anything ;) )
