I will answer your questions about living in Chicago! There is a lot to learn about living in Chicago and I have much advice to offer. Most of my experience is north of downtown, in the north/northwest neighborhoods. I know lots of local spots to dine, shop, play, explore etc. I have always had a car, so I can offer a lot of tips about parking, commuting, tickets, tows, and repairs. A lot of people think about crime when they think of Chicago and I could talk about that too. Public transit, renting an apartment, rats, dog-ownership, owning a business, getting married, planning bachelorette parties, local makers, markets, theatre, floral resources and thrift stores are among my many areas of interest!

We can communicate here on Simbi or via DM on FB or IG.

About Linda Laake

Hello! I've been crafting for as long as I can remember. I love creating special things with and for good people to help them celebrate life events and I've had a lot of experience doing so. From pl...anning my own DIY wedding to hosting themed baby showers and leading arts & craft sessions for people with secial needs, I've dabbled in most mediums. I have worked with many types of supplies and I have developed a knack for knowing what will work best. I also have a pretty good intuition for how to tackle creations I've never made before. I truly believe handmade projects make recipients feels extra special. I also hold a Bachelor's in theatrical scenic design, which has given me a ton of know-how what it comes to creating. I'm great at figuring out how to make an idea work even if it seems impossible! (Ask me about the time I had to make a working leaf blower come out of a briefcase or when I painted a giant map of Iowa on a 20' wall)show more
