Exciting News!

I just finished voting for my picks in the ACEO YBA 2008 and discovered that I am a finalist in six different categories! Woohoo! I am up against some incredible art so I am really happy just to be a finalist and we will find out who the winners are after the 24th of November.
With the fate of the eBay community forums in question, two of my favorite ACEO groups have created websites of their own. Visit ACEOaddix by clicking here Visit ACEOaddix.com
You can also visit ACEO Enthusiasts at www.aceoenthusiasts.com
ACEO stands for Art Cards, Editions and Originals. They are tiny works of art that measure
2.5" x 3.5" which is the size of a baseball trading card. They can be made of any medium or material, the only rule is their size. You can learn more about them by visiting the two sites above or search for them on sites such as Etsy and eBay or simply google the word ACEO and see what you find!
Artist Lisa Luree or bone*diva on eBay started the whole ACEO movement. You can see her work at www.lisaluree.com she is amazing!
I have my CafePress shop up and running now. Check out my wares at www.cafepress.com/MandarinMoon

All a Twitter

I was reading Etsy articles on blogging and how to increase visitors to your blog and they mentioned a couple of interesting things.

One is a site called "Twitter" at www.twitter.com You can sign up for free and there you post little short paragraphs in 140 characters or less that answers the question "What are you doing right now?". It's an interesting idea but I am still trying to figure out how to use it and how to find others I know. I think it may be that they have to be in your email address bo0k (?) I'm still not sure lol!

The second piece of advice was to claim my blog at Technorati and I have just done that. Not really sure what I have done by claiming my blog but it is done nonetheless, I have staked my claim!

On another subject...I was on deviantART last night and I searched for scratchboard and I was blown away by the art that I found! Check these out! I'm not sure how to create links yet but if you copy and paste each of these in your browser window you will be blown away! Whoa!
