    Wedding prep update from a family friend

    Chicago murals: Cake decorator turned muralist Anne Heisler brightens viaduct in Archer Heights with murals

    Anne Heisler didn’t learn the intricate painting skills she uses as a muralist the traditional way. She picked them up working for about 15 years as a cake decorator after dropping out of college. “It’s been a huge help for me professionally because restaurant industry jobs, kitchen jobs, are very fast-paced,” the 39-year-old Humboldt Park resident says of her cake-decorating experience. “They teach you to work very quickly.” She put that to use on a recent mural commission that brightens a viaduct at 47th Street and Archer Avenue in Archer Heights on the Southwest Side.

    Brookings Register | Put kitchen scraps and landscape trimmings to work in the garden

    Convert landscape and garden trimmings into valuable compost.

Composting is as simple as placing disease- and insect-free plant debris into a pile and letting it rot.  Don’t add meat, dairy, or fat that attracts rodents or weeds that have gone to seed, invasive plants or perennial weeds that can survive the compost process and
