Trust me, George, Detroit is definitely not "exotic." Exotic dancers, maybe, but not exotic.  Grin

(Now don't anyone rag on me for trashin' Detroit. I know it has a lot of charm and does have some very cool stuff to do - but you gotta admit it has it's "nasty" side, too.)

Still spend way, way too many of my weekends going to "Detroit" too!!  Grew up in the suburbs there.  My in-laws still live in the western suburbs (Canton), and my brother, sister and lots of friends live in the the other suburbs.  My parents, however, have retired to Florida.

Being in the Chicago suburbs now, but having grown up in the Detroit suburbs definitely gives me a unique perspective on some things!  Here in "Chicagoland", "the city" is a generally good thing.  People drive or take trains into the city every day around here.  In the Detroit area, "the city" was generally viewed as a negative thing.  You generally didn't go there unless there was a good reason to do so.  Once there, you parked close, and stayed with the group, and didn't go off wandering....

Oh I don't know, I've never been to America so every city there sounds exotic to me! Grin

I used to live in Saginaw, MI and been to Detriot a few times.  Unfortunately, I know exactly what you mean. 

I now live in Savannah, GA where Forrest Gump and Garden of Good and Evil was filmed (among other films).  The south is very hot and humid in the summers, but it is beautiful here in the spring.  Plus working at Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD) does have it's advantages and perks.  I am able to take free classes.  I did make a mistake of taking an on-line course this quarter and to my dismay it is much more difficult than I had anticipated.  I find myself having to spend twice as much time on doing projects compared to my previous regular classes.  Oh well.  No crafting for me until my school work is finished.

Just spent four hours finishing up on another big swap. I got a bit overcommitted last month I think. Unfortunately, with no time limit, this swap sort of languished a bit. One finished, one half finished and one has a long way to go until its due. Hopefully I will relax, get a bit of inspiratin and make something for this swap.

I definitely take advantage of that employee benefit.  I just love being around talented people.  It's very inspiring and at the same time intimidating to see the students' works.

If you ever make it down here.  You should let me know and I can show you around.

It'd be neat to do a "craftster tour" of sorts.  Each person as a rep for their home, and tourguide for the rest of us. Smiley

I live in Victoria, BC, Canada...home of mild weather, plentiful gardens, and very little snow (ie two or three days per year. One day this year. lol). 

We've got numerous colleges/universities, beautiful scenic views, and are generally more laid back. The pace of life here is not as frantic as you find in large cities, despite being a fairly large one itself.  We have good public transit, and everything is pretty easy to get to--not too much traffic.  And, being and island, lots of ocean views Wink

Let's start the tour! Smiley

I live in sunny Australia. Five minutes from beautiful beaches which are not crowded. Two hours from anything resembling a craft shop though. It will have to be a day trip. Stop laughing all you city dwellers. Yes, we do travel four hours in a day to shop.

I live in a very rural area of East Tennessee.  Lots of mountains in the distance, hills, trees, and I have my very own cave.
I feel the long distance craft shop pain.  I have been trying ordering what I need online to save the gas of driving ALL the way to Michaels, only to be disappointed, but have been even more disappointed with online purchasing.  The shipping has been PAINFULLY slow, and has caused me to have to somewhat scramble on my other swaps.  Ugh.  Hopefully I can set aside some time.  Did get quite a bit unpacked this weekend.  My job works me 10 days straight and then gives me 4 days off, so needless to say, those 4 days are spent catching up on cleaning and laundry.
