It has been a whirlwind month. My Swarm is complete for Saturdayâ€™s opening, and I am dropping of my Music piece at the new Evanston Art Center tomorrow.
May started off with a fun Pop-up at Chroma K8 Beautique. Several businesses gathered at the Salon to offer Motherâ€™s Day gifts.
We enjoyed getting to know each other better and learning about each otherâ€™s businesses as we spent the day perusing each otherâ€™s wares.
My new table was fun to set up.

Malik of Hip Circle Studio came with her famed wheel to offer demonstrations and class sneak peeks.
Hip Circle Studio is launching web-based classes that begin this week. You can participate by web cam, and Malik will monitor your posture and activity remotely, while you can also interact with other student in the studio. I hope some of my friends who moved away will reconnect with us this way.
Memoir for MeÂ is a lovely concept where Nora Kerr interviews people and then puts photo album together with narratives as family heirlooms.
She does this for people of all ages, from young children to retirees to grandparents.
I picked up bath deliciousness from Bonnie-Naturally nourishing skin & body care, who offers organic skin care products.
I chatted with Nomadic Ant and admired her lovely silver & brass jewelry.
I also sniffed the colorful Skokiewood candles that smelled edible.
Jenny offered Noktivoâ€™s mini-manis for all vendors and shoppers.
Back on TrackÂ untangled my shoulders during a relaxing chair massage.
Little Monsters PhotographyÂ took awesome photos of our event.
Kate then asked me to leave some pieces with her for consignment, so you can peruse my pieces throughout the salon while you get your hair and nails done.
I decided to get my hair done organically too last week.
Chroma K8â€™s products are all earth friendly and healthy. The coloring products she uses have coconut oil and other hair-friendly ingredients to ensure the damage is limited.
The shampoo and conditioner products also offer healthy solutions for earth and scalp, and the staff at ChromaK8 offers knowledgeable advice to support oneâ€™s hair, and the products donâ€™t break the bank.
Chroma K8 Beautique is located at 5425 N Lincoln in Chicago, and worth the visit.
