Interview and blog recommendation

I'm always amazed by the creativity of certain people. You will have a chance to read  about one of them as I'm posting an interview with a very talented young lady from http://www.maryloucinnamon.com. The clothes she makes are so beautiful and unique and the speed with which she makes them is truly remarkable. (When it came to picking the photographs for this post, it wasn't easy because I really like all the clothes she creates.)
