I have kept journals for 9 years and so its surprising that I should only discover blogging as a new format of journal writing. It's about time I embrace it and see if its as fun.

Georgie's ACEO Baby Shower

A few months ago I joined a Facebook group - the ebay ACEO. It's a great group and things are always happening, lots of conversation and new pictures posted all the time. A really active and thriving community. While I was very close to giving birth I gave everybody a daily update as to how things were going. I think everybody got pretty eager to see me finally pop the Georgie out. It was quite good having a lot of US people in the group who would be up when I was, at 3am with some form of pain or ailment.
When I eventually went into hospital I believe I made the time to write a quick desperate message - something to the effect of, I think it's starting! Then that was it, no word from me for a couple of days.
Imagine my excitement when I came back - 19 FB updates, 3 friend requests and 2 private messages (along with 36 emails)!
Anyway to get to the point, Leola and Cheryl who are the administrators or some form of leader of the group had organised a new photo challenge. Rather than providing a picture for everybody to interpret; people were asked to make a card in honour of baby Georgie, an ACEO Baby Shower if you will. Then send all the cards to me (I wasn't expecting that at all!)
Once I got my first card I decided to take pictures of Georgie posing with each card I got through the door.
So sit back and enjoy the photos. It has been an amazing thing and I am now hoping something else happens in the group that I can participate in and share the love :)

  1. awwwwwwwwww, she's so gorgeous! It was a fun challenge to take part in

  2. What a delightfully kind thing for the admin team to organise and how sweet of all those people to participate. I can imagine your joy on finding out about it and then receiving all those beautiful cards.
    Georgie is so sweet and in all her pretty clothes too :D Awwww.......Mo :0)
    ps - what is ACEO?

    1. Hi Twinkle Toes - yes I was overjoyed to find I'd be receiving lots of cards, I absolutely love mail and this was so thoughtful and kind! An ACEO stands for Art Cards Edition and Originals - they are basically art trading cards for sale instead of trade :) They have been the most fun since I started doing them in late March and with a baby around its quite easy to knock up small pieces of art rather than lugging an easel around!!!

  3. Hi Katie, Love your blog - thanks so much for this entry showing all the ACEO cards. It was an honor to share this special time with you and Georgie.

  4. Wow, this was a really special post ... 8)
