My name is Christine and I’m from the wonderful country of Norway! I have always had big love for California and I guess you could say that it was truly love at first sight as my parents took me there for the first time 1994. If it was the wonderful sunny weather, the doughnuts for breakfast or the english language that caught me most, I don’t know, but when it came time to choose a place to study, there was no doubt in my mind, so I spent about 6 years there as I studied Interior Design at California State University, Northridge. But my road doesn’t end there, because sometime we have to follow our harts, and mine has now taken me to a tiny city in the middle of the Wine Hills in the south of Germany.
I always had a passion for anything creative, which came from a childhood where my mother knitted, sewed, dried flowers, and had my sisters and I be a part of all kinds of homemade seasonal projects. So a big thanks goes out to the worlds best mom for showing me the way towards one of things I love most in life!
Like so many other interior designers, the love of interior design came to my life through many years of rearranging my bedroom. I can still remember the first time my parents redecorated my bedroom; light yellow walls, blue curtains with pink flowers, light blue wall to wall carpet, all white furniture, little home made decorations made by my mom and a princess bed! And it was an experiences like that, that made me understand how little or big changes could make such a great difference to a space. I can’t imagine any better feeling than walking into a room where I have made some cute little changes, it just brightens up my day!
But my hobbies go far beyond interior design; I find anything you can make yourself simply the best way to go, not only because way you will always have a unique result, but also because it’s just so much more fun! And that’s what I want to share with you in this blog! I was always trying to find great ways of sharing all the things I make, design or discover with my family and friends, especially after I once again moved far away from everyone. I never though about making a blog, but thanks to some very good friends and family that kept saying I should try making one, here I am! So I hope every reader enjoys my little creative world!
