Un-Hibernating

It’s been a social few weekends for me. Spring is trying to emerge, and so are friends. After the Stumble & Relish soiree I enjoyed Sketchbook with my friend, again enjoying the Brewery Witch we sampled on International Women’s Day. I had a lovely evening at Creative Coworking on March 23. Paul Minnihan had his beautiful […]

Another year of joy

It’s officially birthday week and I am enjoying it all. I kicked off birthday month with my Sidewalk Sale splurges, and then just kept on celebrating. I had Andy’s Frozen Custard with a friend last weekend. We took in the lovely Evanston Art & Big Fork festival. I treated myself to Lucky Platter twice this […]

Sip & Stroll on Thursday!

On Thursday evening you will find me at the Evanston Pop Up Gallery for the Downtown Sip & Stroll. The stroll takes place June 21 from 5 pm to 8 pm in Downtown Evanston. Sip, shop and stroll your way through downtown Evanston on the fourth annual Downtown Sip & Stroll (formerly called the Wine Walk)! Stop […]

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 […]

Evanston’s Community Yarnbomb

Last year Evanston yarn bombed the Dempster-Chicago merchant area, and this year the initiative expanded to include Main Street as well. Intrigued by promises of finger knitting I signed up for the May 7 workshop, but then was more incentivized last month by a yarnbomb-making session at La Principal. Jaime gave us a tutorial on […]

Collages at Creative Coworking

My wall collages are adorning a new (temporary) home. Earlier this month I dropped off a few of my pieces to be on display at Creative Coworking in Evanston. Creative Coworking is a lovely building filled with office spaces for solopreneurs and small business owners in Evanston. With a tagline of “your office home” it […]

Winning fun things

2015 is promising to be a winning year. I’ve won something unexpected three months in a row, and it makes me happy to live in Evanston. During Suminagashi artist Amy Lee Segami’s presentation at the Evanston Public Library in February I was the recipient of her poster, which she autographed for me. Being in the winning […]

Women Out Walking

“You’ve got to find something that makes you happy to keep you moving.” ~ Malik of Hip Circle Studio In mid-March, the City of Evanston launched Women Out Walking for the 8th year in a row. The 12-week program encourages women to become more physically active and lead healthier lifestyles. Every week women are asked […]

lakeshore joys

I’ve been working on some cards for the Etsy store, and mustering up courage for a launch within the month. On Sunday I strolled to the Lakeshore Art Fair, which is always a treat. It was a lovely beach day with some beautiful gems along the way. I just don’t tire of my neighborhood, nor […]
