Melanie and I were able to sneak away to downtown Chicago one day during our Create classes. We took the train in from Rosemont and got off very close to our favorite Dick Blick Art Supply store. Loved the store especially since I'm used to shopping from the catalog! Most of the rest of the day was spent at the Art Insitute--- a must to see if you're in Chicago. "The Eye" is a three story art installation in town.....Other favorites were Garrett's Popcorn and deep dish Pizza-- yummy!
