Creative ideas and thoughts from a life-long artist and designer.

We're on the move, again . . .
Seems like the Market isn't what it used to be. We need to be 'where the action is' so we are moving out of the 3rd Street Shops (formerly the Market) and into Geneva. We haven't crossed the t's or dotted the i's yet, but things are looking good.
Amy and I toured Geneva last week and found some old friends there. We'll see how it all turns out, but I'm optimistic.
This is our display in the 3rd Street Shops. We're trying to see if it will fit in our prospective new space. I'd hate to give it up, but it's pretty large.
Graduated from Lake Park H S in Medinah, went to secretarial school, worked a few years, married and had 3 great kids. I have 2 grandsons, 4 grand dogs (Griffons)& 2 grand cats (Maine Coon). When my first 2 children were in grade school I was a professional volunteer, active in PTA, Elmhurst Children’s Theatre & Church stuff. I started a small business while expecting my third and have been working ever since. I'm a fibre artist combining cloth, yarn, and photography. Carolee Creations, Inc. is the corporate name - SewSweet Dolls was the first business. Portrait Pillows, Bags and more . . . is my latest venture, started in ‘98, after my husband died. My daughter and I make custom gift items incorporating photographs - purses, coasters, jewelry, ornaments, quilts, etc. I love going to work every day-my studio is full of fun things! I am in a serious relationship with Bob, a retired Psychology prof, since the beginning of the century. We are involved in activities at First Church and in Elmhurst. When we have time we like to travel. I take sewing classes when I can fit them in, recently learned to weave, and would like to draw and paint again someday.
