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