good people doing good things

August 29, 2008

Happy Labor Day Weekend, everyone! It seems I may have spoken too soon. The weather forecast promises 90-degree heat, so we’ve got plans for another swim or two, along with some homemade ice cream and messy art making. Good summery fun. If you find yourself needing something to do, check out some of my new […]


sort, file, shred

August 26, 2008

In another life, I think I was a secretary or a librarian. I have always loved organizing, whether it’s sorting my sock drawer or alphabetizing CD and books. It’s a love dating back to childhood when one of my dreams was to be a principal’s assistant. This week, I’ve been slowly going through my piles […]

Squam is in less than three weeks, and I’m going! A great big thank you to everyone who purchased a print. Your support means the world to me. The sales have helped fund my trip in a big way. There are still prints available, and I hope to launch the second in the series within […]


last hurrahs

August 20, 2008

And tonight, I’ll cut into what may be the last watermelon of the season. I know that the summer temperatures will remain for many […]


tiny treasure

Me and Calder I met Calder last week, and he is like nothing and everything I’d imagined. His eyes change from blue to gray and his skin from pink to brown. He has a million facial expressions. He is tiny and adorable and precious. And he seemed to change and grow so much in the […]


a little hello

August 12, 2008

I am sitting on our new comfy chair in the corner of the living room, doing some research for a few design projects. Rama is napping on the sofa beside me. I’m tempted to take a nap, too. I’ve developed a habit for afternoon naps while nursing a cold this past week, and I’m wondering […]


  • 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.
