Persistence

Waaaaay back in March, I combined my pretty paper flowers with some of my favorite love quotes and created torn paper collages. Well, they pretty well sat in my shop until last month, when a super duper buyer wanted to buy a card with the saying from one of the ACEOs. Instead, I offered to back the ACEO on a card (in a removeable manner of course!) and she ended up opting for the ACEO + card combo.



Now, this is something I have wanted to do for a long while. After all, an ACEO and card is the ultimate, not only in one-stop shopping, but also in ease of shipping. I ship to you, you sign and pop in the mail. Voila! Done! Naturally though, like so many other projects, it just hadn't made it to the top of the "to-do" list. So I jumped at the chance to do a custom order doing what I had been hoping to do.

And it turned out *marvelously*. I was thrilled! I showed it off to my husband and mother (this being while she was in town). They were duly impressed. Most importantly my buyer was thrilled. ^_^

So I set out to turn all of my quotable ACEOs into cards. And got several done before the lazy kicked in and nothing got photographed and the listings didn't get updated...until today. When my super duper buyer came back wanting to know if I could turn another ACEO into a card!

So not only did I get her card made and the listing updated, but I went ahead and took pictures of one of the others I had finished earlier...Persistence. Somehow the name seems especially appropriate for an idea that has taken over a year and a half to find it's way into my shop.
