These beautifully hand prepared shoes take on an entire art form. Thinking of topographic maps muted scraps of textiles are pressed, hammered, buffed against the mold. In the Geology of Shoes Project shoemaker Barbora Veselá is “taking inspiration from sediment layers and from effects of erosive processes in nature as well as from traditional shoe making techniques.” The final product: a one of a kind pattern for each amazing individual shoe.

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.
