My daughter Nicole emailed today to remind us that the latest installment of her School of the Art Institute tuition is now due. She's into her fourth year (sort of) and should graduate sometime this year we think. We are happy to pay her tuition because we know some day she will be a famous designer and invite her really cool parents to all of those fashion parties that I've seen on Project Runway.
The item shown above - a Black Metal Crocheted Collar - is one of her creations that is now available for sale ($275) in her etsy store: NicoJoy
She plans to also open a store to sell and display her hats. One of her hat creations is currently on display in a window of the Drake Hotel in Chicago.
