I love Chicago and try to get there several times a year. I love the architecture, the hustle and bustle, people watching and beautiful shops. I always take lots of photos, especially at Christimastime. These photos were taken on State Street on 12-6-12 and 12-13-12 on Michigan Avenue.

Is there anything more wonderful than a day in Chicgo at Christmas time!? I went to Chicago last Thursday 12-6-12 and spent the day at Macy's. Lunch at the Walnut Room having the famous pot pie and Frango ice cream pie! Shopping for ornaments and a box of Frango mints! Here are some photos of the beautiful tree in the Walnut room.

Lucky me I got to meet the wonderful Jack Rusell Terrier from the movie "The Artist" on 10-22-12! He was appearing to promote his book and was with his Dad/Trainer at Anderson Book Store in Naperville, a chance of a lifetime!

My latest Couture Collage "Mellow Yellow". I'm into yellow and blue right now so I have also recently done another collage called "Blue" These are so fun to create and I never really know where I will end up! This collage has images from Maybelline ads, Christmas paper, jewelry ads and shoes from Vogue and Elle. I start my collages by adding a background color with acrylic paint, then add the border from various scrapbook paper and other papers.

Well, I know Ground Hog Day is first, but I am not too inspired by ground hogs! I love red and have been saving a lot of red images for a new collage. Valentine's day is a very RED holiday so perfect for this new collage. I found a lot of Barbie magazines at a church sale so that's where I got that image. Didn't even know Barbie had her own magazine.

Happy New Year to you all! This is my latest collage inspired by the new year! I included some images that have special meaning to me. I am going to London and Paris in October so I included the Eiffel Tower. The little dog at the bottom looks like my sister's dog "Casper". The top hat and bow tie gives him a festive holiday look! The M is for my last name, the shiny world ornament for my future travels!
