This is one of the vibrant, colorful pastel ACEOs that I created a couple of weeks ago.Â I thought you would enjoy seeing it.Â And an update on my life also.Â I had mentioned that a very highly stressful event was promised to be over by last Friday afternoon at the latest. That didn’t happen.Â Instead it has been dragged out for another week and a half.Â I am not very happy about it … but there is nothing I can do to change that.Â And I am doing much better at handling my stress now that the process has been started.Â Thanks for all your support!!
Today I was featured in a Spot Light on Made By Hand. The site is Made By Hand – and another time I will share more about it.Â Recently I have been accepted by the ACEO Market on 1000 Markets … and someone there made this Spot Light and included me.Â I think it looks pretty cool.Â They also have a script that you can use to insert the Spot Light into your site or blog.Â I had never heard of this site before today but I made a profile and shop there and I will share these links sometime soon. (There is more about 1000 Markets below.)

1000 Markets is a shop for people selling unique items.Â Part of what they say is “Our merchants are small, independent, artisan businesses built by people who love their craft. They make and sell unique products, based on their own vision, personality and story.”Â Unlike many of the other online shops, you have to be accepted by them to open a shop.Â Anyone can join, look, comment and buy …Â If you want to open a shop, you create a shop with at least 5 items and ask them to approve you. Here is my shop if you would to peek at it … Diane’s 1000 Markets (https://dianeclancy.1000markets.com). You can see lots of my vibrant, colorful paintings there!

1000 Markets is a marketplace that has Markets (instead of teams as Etsy does).Â So there are individual merchants and then markets … which are merchants who come together with a common purpose ..Â geography, type product, method of making items or styles of art.Â The ACEO Market, which recently accepted me, is a market that showcases … guess what … ACEOs … Art Cards (2Â 1/2 x 3 1/2″) that are a fantastic, affordable way to collect an artist’s artwork.Â I highly recommend them.Â At the ACEO Market (http://www.1000markets.com/groups/aceos) you can see lots of different, unique ACEOS!!Â Please stop by!
If you are a customer, this a great way to see more art,Â If you are a seller, I recommend 1000 Markets as a useful place to sell!Â I hope you enjoyed hearing about these places and maybe even got some ideas for yourself! Thank you for coming by!
