Fashion Report: Black, White, and Blue
Black and White are quickly leading the pack as the colors of the moment. While black and white are always classic, right now they're eating up page after page of fashion magazines and sitting pretty in online magazines and blogs.
The LBD(little black dress) is always in style, regardless of season.

Black and white can be molded to any style or personality. They can be fun and flirty...

Or they can be sophisticated, sleek, and elegant.

The blueprint of... Red Cross 9.26.08
The blueprint of... is an article serie where we’re taking a closer look on an Artisan Crafts deviation and how it's made.
Today we are dissecting Red Cross 9.26.08 by UniquelyYours

First off, please introduce yourself?
Hi... My name is Carol Kinast. I live in Geneva, IL (about 50 minutes west of Chicago, IL) and I teach art (Jewelry and Drawing) at a wonderful high school in Naperville, IL called Neuqua Valley. Even though it’s my eleventh year teaching, and I am twice the age of my students (34), they keep me young, inspired and happy.
