Buffalo Grove Great Frame Up

Have you gone through an economic period where puzzles were the only art pieces you could afford? Ever thought about reframing those hand-me-down pictures, paintings, posters, or maps? How about brand new wall hangings? The Great Frame Up www.lifeissimplyart.com in Buffalo Grove at 765 S. Buffalo Grove Road, 60090 can effectively service all your framing needs — all for a great price.

When my kids were little, I put together my share of puzzles during their nap time. Everything from Rousseau to Renoir, with a little bit of wild animals thrown in for good measure. The Great Frame Up made them all look authentic — a bit scary for the kids, but whatever!

Recently, The Great Frame Up worked with me to re-frame a handful of paintings I’d picked up at local arts & crafts fairs. What I liked was that I had a choice of assembling those frames under the manager’s expert instruction, or having her assemble them for me. This time around, I chose Option I. My husband even joined me in the endeavor — a new shared adventure, to say the least.

Give Sharon at The Great Frame Up in Buffalo Grove a call and tell her Jennie Spallone from Coldwell Banker Real Estate in Buffalo Grove sent you. You’ll be glad you did!

Sing, Meditate, Play Chess!

With our busy work and kids schedules, it’s sometimes fun to veer off the blacktop and take an alternate route! Indian Trails Library in Wheeling, Illinois is hosting some cool events this month you might be interested in doing:

Do you or a family member like to sing, dance, recite poetry, act? Tomorrow, Sat. Oct. 2, from 2:00 to 3:30 p.m., the library’s having a variety show in which you can participate! Yes, I’ll be there singing my little heart out! Call Alva at 847-279-2252 to participate or just enjoy!

The next day, Sun. Oct. 3, the library’s scheduling a Chess for all Ages gig from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. for newbies and veteran chess players. These chess classes always appear action-packed when I happen to walk through that section of the library!

And on Wed. Oct. 6, join me from 1 to 2:00 p.m. when I participate in a Guided Meditation session. These free sessions meet every Wednesday throughout October. Free is such a good price to get in touch with yourself!

You Need to Know!

Everybody says I’m the best resource for anything they need to find out about! Probably that’s because being a Realtor, I’m a published suspense author. In both realms, I’m accustomed to asking lots of questions and getting lots of answers!

For my very first blog on WordPress, I’d like to introduce you to a high school in the northwest suburbs. Wheeling High School in Wheeling, Illinois on Rt. 83 and Hintz Rds. is a school you need to know about, especially if you’ve got a student who excels in math, science and technology.

This fall, Wheeling became one of a handful of high schools in the state to receive a grant implementing the STEM program; a comprehensive high school with a focus in Science, Technology, Engineering, Math. In August, educators, business leaders, and political leaders throughout Illinois came to WHS to discuss new programs and initiatives that will prepare students for the workforce of the future.

This Program will focus on teaching students of all socioeconomic levels to achieve success in the new economy. As a former educator, I envision higher performance scores in the math and science subtests of the ACT, leading to increased college/university options for these students.
