Woah! I just remembered that this weekend marks my NINTH (9!?!) year here in Chicago.
Thank you Chicago for your beautiful skyline, your Pequod's and Spaca Napoli pizza, your Lillstreet Art Center which taught me screen printing and the Damen bus that got me there (all the way from Division), your temp jobs including the day gig offer to play Captain Morgan (thanks LP), your theatre scene, the corporate job that lasted 6 years and taught me so much, The Needle Shop that taught me how to sew, your Renegade Craft Fair which inspired me to move forward, and all the lovely people I've met and the friends who live here despite the winter, but most importantly, thank you for your community who supports small hand made businesses. You are a city that inspired me to do what I love and provided me with the resources I needed. Thank you!
