Week 1 of August Break 2013

It’s one week into August and so here I am ready to share my contributions to August Break 2013

August 1st: Ever since we discovered that one of our local mexican restaurants offers a veggie chicken option on their menu, we find ourselves there quite often. I’m not vegetarian but even I prefer it to the meat options. And while we’re there we can’t help but partake in bebidas.

August 2nd: I’ll have to do a more extensive post on this, but my friend Sheila came to visit me and we had 4 GREAT days of adventures. This is the photobooth at quimby’s in chicago.

August 3rd: On Saturday we went to the Kane County Flea Market. I’ve been going to this flea market since I was a little, little girl. We were there the whole time (4 hours) and didn’t even make it through half of it, BUT, we did find some great scores, including a vintage Fisher Price Little People Castle. I’ve been trolling etsy and ebay for years to get one of these and they can go anywhere for around $80 for a dirty, broken and worn one to $300 for a complete set in box. I had one as a kid and want to have it for my nephew and niece to place with at my house. I was able to score a complete set IN THE BOX for only $40! This has to be my best flea market score ever. It’s an investment and immediate return on investment, ha, I’ll consider it part of my retirement fund, applying strategies I learned from the Kiana Danial course.

August 4th: Sheila had never been to lollapalooza before so she got tickets for us on Sunday. This shot was of some random girl in front of me taking a stage picture while Cat Power was performing.

August 5th: Some people checking out some American Gothic at the Art Institute in Chicago.

August 6th: Back to the real world. Returning to work is made easier by bike AND by wearing brand new orange, fringed, and bow-tied, Minnetonkas that I swooped up at TJ Max at discount.

August 7th: This is why we can’t have nice things. I need a one armed man to come teach Bishop a lesson “And that’s why we don’t pee outside of the litter box!”


Hi, I'm Robyn and I was Hatched from a Kinder Surprise Egg. Graphic Designer by day, Maker of things by night. I have worked as a graphic artist professionally since I was 16 years old. Went on to get my Bachelors of Art from NIU. I like to share my Artwork online at flickr.com/photos/robayre and on my own personal website http://www.robayre.com. I also have an online shop http://www.robayre.etsy.com where you can find more of my "crafty" sorts of things, as well as a random piece of artwork here and there. Oh, and I'm also an occasional contributor to Artomat (artomat.org).
