FACE 3: ADAMS-SHAWN Adams-Shawn has been taking ring-reflection wedding photos. Called “Ringscapes,” Adams has been experimenting with such shots since 2012. “The project has evolved quite a bit over the last couple of months to some much more challenging compositions,” Adams-Shawn said. “I figure at some point standard reflections in rings will be a lot more common … so I need to push things even further." To most who see his "Ringscapes," it is difficult to see how they could get any better; however, he isn't satisfied yet. Rumour has it that he’s experimenting with taking photos of soap-bubble reflections. http://www.boredpanda.com/ring-reflection-wedding-photography-ringscapes-peteradams/utm_source=facebook&utm_medium=link&utm_campaign=BPFacebook

FACE 4: THE NEW LAURA INGALLS WILDER MUSEUM The original Laura Ingalls Wilder museum opened in 1971, next to the Mansfield home where Wilder wrote her famous "Little House on the Prairie" books. Since the opening of that first museum, the dream has been to build a bigger, newer facility. Finally, that dream has come true.
"I hope that children will be coming to see this a hundred years from now. And now we have a building where that can happen," says Jean Coday, director of the Laura Ingalls Wilder Home Association.
The new museum features a video room, and a wide variety of artifacts are on display. Visitors can see Wilder's original hand written manuscripts, her type-writer and desk, and Pa's fiddle (the beloved musical instrument so familiar to readers of the books.) The museum layout is organized by each book as she's written it. You can move from displays and artifacts in the first book and go to the next and the next. http://www.ky3.com/content/news/New-Laura-Ingalls-Wilder-museum-376797461.html
FACE 5-CREATIVE PACKAGING In today's world the package or container something comes in may actually be bigger and weigh more than the object itself. Sadly, landfills are filled with a variety of different containers. Hopefully, consumers will begin recycling, like we are doing here at school, and help conserve our resources.
Today many containers are so creative that we hate to throw them away. In fact, we just might be tempted to buy something because we like the container. Creative product designer know this and work very hard to package their merchandise so it is eye-catching and even fun for the consumer. Let's take a look at several creative packaging ideas!
