ChunkyPineapple is a lifestyle and DIY blog written by Michelle Yip.  Born and raised in New York, Michelle has lived in Manhattan, Shanghai and Philadelphia before moving to San Francisco in the Summer of 2007.  She grew up in the suburbs, but she's a city girl at heart. 

ChunkyPineapple began as a way for Michelle to engage her creative side on a more regular basis.  The Etsy shop, where Michelle sells her Gocco-printed cards and prints, was launched in April 2009.  A few months later, ChunkyPineapple, the blog, was introduced to explain some of the ideas and inspiration behind the card designs and to share all of the cute, pretty and/or interesting things Michelle encounters on a daily basis whether they be DIY projects (both crafting and home renovation), unique products or local SF events.
