I must say, I did not expect to see camels on Halsted, but I guess there's a first for everything! Glad I got to see friends & family too! Till next year....
Who knows, maybe I'll have a booth again next year.....;-)

Boat Tour http://spiralartdesign.zenfolio.com/blog/2013/8/boat-tour So this weekend, I had the pleasure of going on one of Chicago's best boat tours by the Chicago Architecture Foundation. It was a beautiful 90 min boat ride. I don't know about you, but I can go around town like a tourist all the time!!! Do me a favor & be sure to look around when you're hanging around the city next time. I really think we have some of the most beautiful buildings & scenery. Here are some of my pics from the tour. Enjoy;-)
