One of the blog updates I try to keep up with is DesignMom’s site. She up and moved to France for a year – how cool is that? Um, she has six children – how on earth does she manage that? And she’s balances practical ideas with fanciful doodads..with six children. Have I mentioned she has six children?
One of the other websites Gabrielle Blair, the one and only behind Design Mom, was called Kirtsy, which I tried taking a look at once or twice in its old form but confess I never really understood what it was. A message board? A list serv? Was never really sure what to do with it though there seemed to be a lot going on. This week though they’ve renewed and rebranded into a form that I think will make my daily morning coffee reading list. The idea is to build a slideshow daily of several great images around a particular theme – kind of “the best of what’s on the web” on this topic. Notice how this is yet another balance of practical and fanciful. I’ll definitely be keeping an eye on this one to see how it unfolds, but in the meantime, here are a few images from the slide shows already up to get you started.
