Hello there! I’m Abbey Hambright, the brains behind this operation. I’ve been running my little business, abbeychristine, since 2005, and started this blog about a year later to chronicle my adventures as a maker and business owner, and many artists whose work I find inspiring.Abbey HambrightI’m a native Midwesterner who, after a few years of wandering, laid down roots in Chicago. I live in the Pilsen neighborhood in an 1894 worker’s cottage with my partner, toddler son and our not-very-bright foxhound. By day I’m a designer and non-profit marketer, and by night I can usually be found in my studio watching Netflix and sewing. When I was 5, my favorite thing in the world was a new box of crayons. Today I enjoy thrift stores, coconut Italian sodas and listening to This American Life.

You can see more from me on InstagramTwitterEtsy, and Facebook.

Psst! Are you here looking for my Pee Wee helmet DIY? Full post here.

Got a question, comment or good book recommendation? Feel free to drop me a line at abbeychristine [at] gmail [dot] com. Thanks for stopping by!

  1. Hello Abbey.
    Eric here with Wonder Fair: Art Gallery & How! We’re a little art shoppe/studio/gallery in Lawrence KS. We’d love to sell some of your felt goodies. Please get back to me if you’d be interested. Thanking you, Eric

  2. Dear Abbey, Ur crafts was amazing!
    I made some craft from felt too, but not good as U made.
    So, have a great day and keep up the good work, Abbey!

    Im the one of Ur fans 😀

  3. I really like your stuff! Would you be interested in vendor space at the Artsgarden in downtown Indianapolis next May for a fundraiser hosted by the Children’s Bureau Auxiliary?

  4. Love your blog. Came here from a link on Pee Wee’s site! Where did the box of toys come from to make the helmet?
    Again… Great blog!

    • Hey Jerome! Thanks for stopping by. Glad you found me by way of Pee Wee! The post there was a little misleading– I didn’t buy the box pre-assembled, it was my box for storing toys as I collected them. I just added a list of sources to my original post about the helmet.
