Hewlett Packard N°564 Marketed by Celeste Watson

They’ve got ya right where they want ya. Computer printers sit like a bunch of angels in a row on the store shelf, crooked halos above their fancy features boasting compatibility with the best electronic brands out there, sporting great prices appealing to consumers. But then the truth shows it’s ugly head when you soon run out of printer ink. Prices out the roof! And so, they win. Darn-it. Can’t believe we fell for that.

Perspective is sweet as savvy designer Celeste Watson packages the deceit in a bottle to prove ounce against ounce the ink is just as expensive as luxury perfume. Is it fair that we save and splurge on such a fine ticket item for special occasions although we are forced to yield to the market up charge to print in black and white?! She has utilized the iconic Chanel N°5 box as her blueprint for expressing the hate and Hewlett Packard N°564 seems to be wearing the target. So hard to hate it when it comes all pretty.



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.
