no time

February 28, 2008

Lately, I feel like I’m racing the clock, and the clock is winning. On one hand, it’s great because I am so inspired and there are a gazillion projects that I cannot wait to work on. I haven’t felt this urge to create and the desire to complete in a while. On the other hand, […]


good people doing good things

February 27, 2008

Martha made beautiful BLT salads in cups crafted of woven bacon! I am drooling. Erin is spreading inspiration with a simple but lovely e-zine. Download the first and second PDF issues. Maria of Port2Port Press and Lena Corwin have started a new project, Lines & Shapes, that promises to deliver another healthy dose of inspiration. […]


the portrait party

February 22, 2008

It’s a proud day in the Hughes household because Rama’s in the press! His portrait project, The Portrait Party, has been featured in the April 2008 issue of The Artist’s Magazine. Check it out. You may even find portraits of and by a certain wife. What makes The Portrait Party so amazing, I think, is […]

The cat’s finally out of the bag: My brother Ricky and his wife Brooke are expecting a baby in July. I’m going to be an Auntie, and I am so excited! One of my favorite things to do lately is think about this little human growing inside Brooke’s belly, wondering whether it is a boy […]


happy valentine’s day

February 14, 2008

My valentine for you, dear friends, is this very long overdue redesign. It’s been stuck in my head like a broken record since the start of the year and, after a lot of thought, design and programming magic, here it finally is. Aside from the glorious white space and room to breathe, the big change […]


  • 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.
