Scary Roof Experience...

Last night a neighbor invited us up on her roof. She lives in a really old, tall building. The ladder we had to use to get up there was SCARY as hell! Rungs were missing, it was old and wobbly. I'm very much afraid of heights too, so that didn't help AT ALL. Once you get to the top rung of the ladder, you pop your head out and to the right is the side edge of the building. SHIZA. Anywho, once I got up and stopped shaking, it was an amazing view.

mmm pretty city..

Of course we had to take a shot like this, duh!

This photo was taken by Louie. Vorrel trying out the corona commercial.

In other news, I was featured on Apartment Therapy Chicago today!

Movie In The Park

Went to Grant Park with some friends last night to see Ferris Bueller's Day Off! Although it was raining beforehand and we were soaked, it was still really fun!

Had a great time, thanks Dan & Hillary for inviting us to go!

Sticker Design

Miss Sabine Brandt invited fellow bloggers to create stickers for her graphic design firm Sisterbrandt.

Started playing around and this is what I came up with.

Her idea was to collect lots of different designs from around the world. Thanks Sabine for letting me design one for you! I can't wait to see the other designs.


I'm so behind...

Big photo post over at The Apartment Blog.

Weekend Events

Had a fun weekend. Saturday we went to a friends roof to watch Chicago's air and water show. Although it was cloudy, it was still really fun and great to see the Blue Angels fly.

From there to the Rock Bottom Brewery for some food and drinks.

Then to some crazy art shows in the Fulton Market Area. First off was the "Fox-Hole" - "Going Somewhere Fast" - artwork by BeeJay & Rustel. Hilarious, coffee pots hanging from the ceiling, all connected to each other, and TV's set up with van seats to watch some footage of the countryside taken while driving.

Next was the Mars Gallery. Work by Paul Moschell. Very cool stuff.

I had a great time, thanks to all who were there.

More shots here.

Walkin N Working...

Been working my ass off for the Renegade. I made a ton of earrings and a money apron to hold my cash that day. Don't mind the sloppy sewing, I've realized that I really don't have the patience for sewing, I really enjoy it, but I always just wing it and it turns out sloppy, oh well....

I leave you with a photo of downtown Chicago, I took this on my walk to a meeting today. I love this city.


This weekend's events

Vorrel & I went to my cousin Alexa's wedding this weekend in Erie, PA. Had a lot of fun with the fam!

On the road playin' with my new Canon SD630, color swap and color accent tools.

At the wedding, dancin', singin' & drinkin'.

TONS More photos here


Paintin & Working...

Spent a few hours painting tonight.

Got some display trees in the mail. I love the look of these, they will be perfect for my display.

Yawn, I'm pretty sleepy. Have a good hump day everyone.

mmm mmm good...

So Ray and I decided to do a "spam of the week" post. Spam is super annoying, but if you sit down and take a minute to read them, they are really quite funny!

He got this email at work!
