I see we are fellow Chicago bloggers. I have want to ask you if you would like to participate in my Spotlight Feature that I run on my blog on Saturdays. It is unique and different in that it is about you on a more personal level. Let’s new bloggers find you and also the bloggers that know you already get to know about you on a more personal level. It is fun and easy. If this is something you would like to do you can let me know and I will give you all the details on how to do it. It is easy peasy.
If you have not seen Spotlight you can go to my blog and on the header is past spotlight features so you can see how some of them have been done.
I am booked out until December for spotlight features and we take a break for the month of December with Spotlight because of the holidays and all the busy time for everyone but resume in January. If this is something you would like to do I will be booking for January. I hope you will say yes it would be fun to feature you. You would have lots of time and it would be after the busy holiday season before your feature.
Have a great Sunday.

Kris – thank you so much for the invite! I’m honored – and the January timing works best for me too. The next few months are going to be a bit busy around here with some work on the house, some client work, and college applications! I think I may get to breath again sometime around then New Year! Let’s keep in touch and just tell me what I need to do! Linda

Hello Linda…was wondering if you could help me…I am wanting to paint chalkboard paint on mason jars, then write on that with bistro paint. The jars I bought have so much writing on it, I can’t figure how to find a smooth area to paint on…making sense? Is there a certain size/type mason jar that I could use? I would appreciate any suggestions.

I love your site and have subscribed to make sure I don’t miss anything BUT there are so many advertisements in your posts that today I was redirected FOUR times to sites I have no interest in.
It’s very aggravating. I know you need to make money but there has to be a better way. More than likely I will be unsubscribing from your blog. ?

I was wondering if you know where you got the terracotta pumpkin with the terracotta hat that you have on your numbered steps. I’ve been looking for one and can’t find them anywhere so far.
Thanks so much!

Gigi – I purchased that pumpkin about 18 years ago at a small nursery that used to do business around the corner from my home here in Chicago. Unfortunately, that nursery is now a condo building. Plus it was a mom & pop shop. I did a quick search on ebay and found this listing: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Vintage-Jack-O-Lantern-Pumpkin-Terra-Cotta-Stove-Pipe-Hat-Halloween-RARE-FIND-/111786740582?hash=item1a07024b66 I suggest you do a search and see if there are more there.
