Gimme a beat!

Just a quick little post about a friend of mine. More a friend of my wife, since they have known each other for almost 30 years (and both of them will kick me for mentioning that length of time). But they met when they were each -11 years of age, so that's okay. :)

Debbie Egizio is this very talented friend and artist. She used to work for County Sampler Decorating Ideas, but they stopped producing that magazine. She recently took her passion for art to the masses by opening "The Beat Of My Art" in downtown Naperville, near the train station. I highly recommend a visit - art from about 15 local artists and art classes taught by Debbie. You have to really see her artwork to get the experience of it. Deb will soon be seen on HGTV for a couple segments in their "That's Clever!" show.

And if all that isn't enough, Deb is just an all-around great person. Kind, considerate and caring with a general love for people and to help.

(Did I say that right Deb? Can I have my toys back now?)
