Saucey Sauce Walk!

I love the Main Dempster Mile and had a blast at the Sauce Walk. I set up at Dietrich 21, a fitness studio I pass by but had not set foot in until our Sauce Walk Pairing.  Agnes took a plethora of photos, so this is quite a well-documented pop-up. Yoga teacher Gina had fun […]

Sauce Walk! A Neighborhood Art & Dessert Crawl

Angel has photobombed the wine walk in September, and we’ve warmed up during the Warm Bevvy Walk in December. This year, the Main-Dempster Mile is adding another walk to its repertoire with the Sauce Walk!  On Thursday, May 17 I will be popping up a temporary gallery in Dietrich 21/D21 during Sauce Walk, A Neighborhood Art […]

May is Here!

Hello May! I am preparing for three fairs this month. The Ravenswood Chamber of Commerce Mother’s Day Art Fair is on Wednesday, May 9 from 4 to 8 pm in the evening. I am super excited to return to this place, and hope that this year we won’t have a rain storm during the event. […]

Last Pop-up Hurrah

It’s the most wonderful time of the year…. I’ve had carols in my head since December and am contemplating which Christmas Album will be this year’s splurge (Gwen Stefani is a contender).   Meanwhile, I have one final local pop-up before my pieces go into holiday hibernation. The Evanston Pop Up Gallery is hosting The […]

Scarfpin Collection at Evanston Stitchworks

Since my foray onto sewing I have been eager to incorporate fabric into my wax and wire designs too. The Ladybugs with fabric scraps are holding up well. Then a few weeks ago while popping by Evanston Sticthworks Amalia asked me about making scarf pins. I had already designed a safety pin for a friend, […]

Reconnecting with the Sewing Machine

During my corporate life, I took a pencil skirt class at Vogue Fabric and of course gathered materials to build on that, except that my inherited sewing machine thwarted me and I gave up.  Eventually I got a brand-new machine, but I only used it for small projects and never went back to my UFOs, especially […]

Main-Dempster Mile fun

I am easing out of hibernation and it is safe (no longer too cold) to take angel out and about on my adventures. Evanston’s Main-Dempster mile is full of fun adventures. Squeezebox has the right idea with these postcards. I had tacos for charity on the day of the Woman’s March, and later went to […]

Warm Bevvy Trunk Show

Last year I had a blast at the Warm Bevvy Walk in Evanston. It is a great way to explore local shops and make new friends. The 2nd Annual Evanston Warm Bevvy Walk is on Thursday, December 8 from 5 to 8 pm with my favorite businesses participating. Enjoy an evening stroll with friends and […]

Evanston Winewalk for Mudlark

Last Thursday the Main-Dempster mile was adorned with lime green aprons galore. Almost all the retailers between Chicago Avenue and Sherman on Main Street participated in the Evanston Charity Wine Walk benefiting Mudlark theater. I bought a raffle ticket, and many others tried to win the 12 gift baskets offered this evening. I’m curious which […]

Birthday Break

Monday was my birthday, and I started the celebration early with my mom’s visit on Thursday. We took a long weekend and explored Evanston, while meeting friends for food and libations among various stops. Prior to mom flying in a ceiling fan fell on my head, so we made this a walking weekend while monitoring […]
