hint: sometimes i just stick things in places, hoping you’ll trip over them. i’ve been known to slip funny notes in your shoes or little surprises at the bottom of your bag. i try to add paintings or phrases to the margins or archive page of this site, so that next time you reload you see something new. i might put a flower in a vase and leave it by your bed or paste a pretty photo on the fridge to brighten your morning. i will even make coffee, if i get up early enough, so that when you come into the kitchen it’s already sitting there, waiting for you to pour it into your favorite mug. if i really like you, i’ll plant a quick kiss on your cheek when you’re not looking.

i’m good like that. tiny, happy surprises make the days lighter and brighter. for all of us.


  • 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.
