Photographer/model/baker Christine McConnell may appear innocent enough, with the whole 50s housewife thing going on. But behind the scenes lurks a baker with a love of the macabre.
From killer waffle cones to a face hugger sugar cookies, McConnell produces desserts that would make any movie monster or serial killer proud. Christine does occasionally break away from the creepy stuff, producing dishes and cakeworks that are downright gorgeous.

The enormous growth of the American craft beer industry is nothing short of extraordinary. But, as we all know, beer drinkers and Americans are all about convenience. Coffee drinkers have their lives made easier by Keurig, and even tortilla-maker’s get some love. Now, it’s the beer lover’s turn.
Synex is a system designed for the home, that will dispense the beer of your choice at the pull of a tap. No longer will we have to drive all the way to the liquor store and buy a whole six-pack or 750ml, only to see its quality diminish if it sits around too long.
The Synex, via vacuum-sealed cartridges, deliver the fresh beer of your choice, one beer at a time. The package-o-beer will keep a gallon of beer fresh for up to 30 days — significantly longer than any bottling, including that enormous growler taking up space in the fridge. The Synex is currently in Kickstarter phase.
