good things

April 9, 2007

* Watching TV after 40 days of (practically) none.
* Stranger Than Fiction on DVD (thank you, Easter Bunny).
* Making Easter brunch with Mom. A tall pile of blueberry pancakes. Bacon dipped in maple syrup.
* The new issue of Optic Nerve is out—and I can’t wait to read it.
* Auntie Em’s mini cupcakes.
* Rama’s making a spider-fan out of me.
* A rainbow of embroidery floss & bakery twine.
* Velcro.
* Cherry Coke Zero.
* Trading fonts with Sheila.
* Martha Stewart Weddings magazine. Although I’m already married, but I buy it still for its beautiful design (and for client research).

  • 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.
