French artist Benoit Jammes has taken old cassette tapes and reinvented them giving us a new way to be entertained. Cassette Relooking is a shout out to the generation of cassette tapes. Things were more simple then, listening to your walkman one tape at a time. In honor of big bangs and high tops, the collection has brought us a nostalgic feeling integrating glimpses of those days in the design. These pieces of art are so fun. There is a cassette tape that has been transformed appealing like a squeezed orange.  Another is like a piece of dripping nickelodeon slime. There are feelings of anger and destruction with blood stained across one framed tape. And yet another expresses a sense of humor with bleeped out suggestive sexual connotation.



Allison Parker is a proud stay at home mom maintaining a full schedule kissing boo boos and passing out hugs just because. Her days many times are spent between the garden and the kitchen. From a journey of learning whole food eating habits, she's taken on the challenges of baking bread, muffins and cakes from scratch and filling the cellar shelves with scores of her own canned goods each year. Writing is one of those things she does because its part of who she is. That and it's a nice break from the never ending work that comes with raising a family.
