A wonderful mess

December 10, 2002

i spilled red glitter all over the floor last night and pricked my thumb with a pin. i love this time of year. as if i am not a kid every other day of the year, this giddy little girl within me awakes and i have to have my hands in everything. i always try to start out modest — my christmas list begins with a handful of names — but it keeps growing and i keep buying and i keep getting excited about all the things i can do and make and give.

so, that’s where i am right now: in a mess of glitter and sequins and paper and twine. i can hardly give another thought to much of anything else.


  • 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.
