Who's that happy girl...
That's me - I'm Christina and I couldn't be more over joyed that you are here. I am the Chief Curator of Awesomeness at Creative Mercantile and Mercantile Mail.
I like to make things, belly laugh, document my life in words and pictures and eat ginger cookies and donuts.
I am a 40 something - Costume Designer - turned Corporate Marketer - turned Retailer - turned Maker, Planner and Big Dreamer and Gratitude giver.
I adore papers, stickers, ribbon, washi tape, watercolors, fabrics, and anything that I can create with. I also LOVE my planners - yep I have more than one. The format doesn't matter - A5 or personal, spiral bound or wrapped up in a Traveller's Notebook. Each planner allows me to be productive, creative and inspired.
When I am not working you will find me spending time with the love of my life or friends in SF Bay Area. I am a work in progress and you can keep up with my crazy life, projects, pictures, gratitude project on the
Our Creative Manifest...
When the idea of Creative Mercantile and Mercantile mail began I wanted a frame work to build the business. Something to
ground. This declaration is what came out.
This list of challenges, dreams and goals is my focus this year.
To keep it front and center I am posting here for everyone to see. I am super grateful that my friend Christine Herrin turned into a beautiful graphic. I have it posted my office/studio wall and as a screensaver on my phone!
By having this to refer back to I know that I will achieve big dreams and goals! It is a touchstone for me. I use the phrases in my planner and in my memory keeping. This along with my One Little Word - INTREPID are my guides for 2016.
