leaving on a jetplane

March 27, 2008

I have written it in email over and over again, and I’ve said it to a few friends, but I still can’t make sense of the words: My grandmother is very sick, and I am leaving on a last-minute trip to the Philippines tomorrow morning. What do I know? That I am so grateful to […]

I know spring has sprung when the daffodils are in bloom. The beautiful blossoms add a splash of much needed sunshine to our little apartment.


the break up

March 22, 2008

I guess things started to cool down in September, when Alec started school. We’d see each other and stop to chat, but he lost interest quickly, often looking away when I spoke to him or wandering off completely mid-sentence. As weeks went by, I saw Alec less and less. He was never in the parking […]


good people doing good things

March 19, 2008

Everyone’s favorite Loobylu is back! Claire Robertson is one of the artists who first inspired me to create a home on the web in 1999. She took a break from her site last February, but is back to sharing her colorful and inspiring Melbourne life. Hooray! Poketo is opening the doors to its new studio […]


fortune cookie

March 16, 2008

In the middle of a trying week, I broke down and got some Chinese food take out. I know better, but I was stressed and tired and hungry, so I treated myself to some beef with brocolli and chow mein. I ate it at the dining table, while I read US Weekly, another guilty pleasure. […]


mellow yellow

March 7, 2008

This week zoomed by without a single tale to tell, but this weekend promises celebrations of a long life and a baby on the way, good conversation with friends and time to create and contemplate. There will be stories. And if I have to, I’ll make them up.


our portrait party

March 2, 2008

Rama and I hosted our first official portrait party this weekend and it was so fun. Each person posed for 2- and 10-minute drawings, while the other 5 of us sketched like mad. Our friends were wonderful sports, and the artwork (which Rama will probably post on The Portrait Party over the next few weeks) […]


  • I'm Christine, and this is a slice of my life—a sweet, rich, wildly indulgent slice that would taste really good with a scoop of Breyers vanilla bean ice cream. Read more >>

  • I run a darling, friendly, little graphic design studio.
    I look on the bright side.
    I take photos. Lots of photos.
    I wish on stars and on websites.

  • I built my first web site 7 years ago and got 15 seconds of fame. (It changed my life.)
    I launched, then relaunched, an online magazine.
    I admitted to several embarrassing crushes.
    I consumed more bacon than any human should and lived to tell the tales.
