The lovely My Writing Desk pulled together by Inesa Malafej of Etc. Etc. celebrates the truest sense of old school journalism. Tuck your notepads and short hand scripts, pens and pencils, books and binders, this and that in the guttered edges. The design gives allowance for the mess-prone to appear tidy and in control of the clutter. We are forever grateful for the chance to let it all hang out so to speak, so the projects can continue uninterrupted just as we left them a few hours before.  So now in our work we feel more elegant, so simple, and liberally organized.

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.
