Raiders of the lost art (of stuffing stockings)

"Indiana Bones"
ACEO, Colored Pencil

How often do we say, "enough with the socks and tangerines, already!! Want something fun to put in a stocking? Go for tiny art! There is sure a lot of it to be found. Look on Ebay for "ACEO" (where the craze began), or Etsy.com or Artfire.com, to name a few.
Of course, it's so close to Christmas now that ordering anything would be out of the question, but I'd be willing to bet that there are lots of little treasures to be found at great local artisan boutiques, like those found in Seattle and Atlanta (two places I frequent).

This is a custom mini character portrait, but you can find all kinds of ready made, ready to stuff tiny art pieces with your favorite subject!

Here's to making Christmas fun, unique and hopefully handmade!
