This is such a beautiful video and art project. Totally inspiring. Found on Etsy.


Mother's Day

I am so excited about this Mother's Day card. Growing up my brother and I watched Mommy Dearest many times. It was one of those movies HBO just had on repeat. My name being Christina my mom and brother would often imitate the closet scene from the movie and hold a hanger while shouting my name. Sounds a little twisted and sick but it always made me laugh.

Clever card from Etsy seller Concrete Lace.

It's been sporadic but I'm still posting over on the book blog too...


Bring it 2012

My view on New Years Eve. Taken by Rick with a fancy lens and long exposure. Beautiful shot, huh?

I have just a few resolutions for the new year:
Eat more salad.
Listen to more music.
And remember that my fear is my kryptonite.
