A New Adventure
Since then I have made ATCs for fun – never for trading. After
joining etsy in 2009, I discovered that they are actually (now) called
ACEOs.....Art Cards Editions Originals. I am not sure why the name
change. I also found out that there are ACEO teams and many collectors
right here on etsy. So I have continued to make these ACEOs and offer
them for sale in my Fabric Greetings shop on etsy.
Recently on the Acetsy team there was an announcement about an ACEO
swap. I decided to give it a try and see what happened. In my mind I
would be paired up with another etsy seller and be able to check out
his/her medium. Imagine my surprise when I was paired with a gentleman
(I have no idea of his age nor does it matter) from Texas who is not a
member of etsy. His only web presence is a blog he recently started. So I
have seen his work. He is a portrait artist. We have agreed on a theme
of “Winter” since our swap has to be completed by February 15th.
I am anxious to see what I receive. It will be like Christmas all over
again. I will try and post a picture of what I send to him. I have a
pretty good idea of what I am going to do. And when I receive my swap, I
will add that to the mix.
What new adventure are you trying for 2013?
