So after 2 hours, several technical issues, 1 grumpy little boy and a lot of internal swearing at Blogger, I can finally bring you today's completed blog post!  Apologies to anyone who came round earlier and found a half-finished post - it's been one of those days...

If I had the money I would collect original ACEOs, but as I don't I'm going to show you a small selection  available on Etsy instead.

ACEO stands for "Art Cards, Editions & Originals" and can apply to originals, prints or photographs so long as they measure 2.5" x 3.5" - that's the only rule.
