good people doing good things

hang in there

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 favorite time killers:

What It Is by the fabulous and formidable Lynda Barry
• The wonderfully ridiculous Arrested Development
• Inspiring and beautiful books by some of my favorite artist pals
Nie Nie Day, an amazing community effort to raise money for a family in need

And if all else fails, take a nap. That’s my plan.


  • 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.
