I was fortunate to do another scrapbook program for the Berea Branch in August. Our library's summer ready theme is eco....or "going green". The scrapbook program was based on using discarded or leftover items on your scrapbook pages. I provided a number of creative ideas for the attendees, but in reality, all they wanted was to come and scrapbook! But, that's okay!
J shares her apartment with friend, Nikki, (Jess, Nikki and kClare are pictured below) and I think they're going to be very happy there. Both girls are Second City people, so they have lots in common.
It was air-show weekend in Chicago, so the city was all abuzz, especially down where J lives. There's one street and the Lincoln Park Zoo between her and the lake.....which is where the air and water show took place.
Her apartment is very cute and by the time I left there, it was even cuter. She doesn't have her car in Chicago, so I drove her out to the IKEA in Arlington Heights so she could shop (for more shitte!) and her place looks great. Here are a few pictures.....look at that little tiny stove!!! How cute is that?It's definitely a place for young people though becuase it's on the 4th floor of an apartment building with NO elevator! This is a shot I got outside her door looking down to the first floor. Needless to say, after a couple of times up those steps, I just waited at the bottom for the girls!
