I know that a lot of people already read Design Mom but I thought I'd say a little something about it just in case someone doesn't. It's one of my favorite blogs. Gabrielle Blair is a mother of 6 (!) and blogs professionally about design and parenthood. Her blog is definitely more aspirational rather than super practical but I find it inspiring in an non-intimidating way. Her tastes are more modern than super cutesy and I usually like most of the things she posts about.
Take these glass bottle lights she recently made with her kids. Aren't they great? I've love to make some but don't think I'll be able to fit it in this year. Maybe next year. I'm filing it away in my mental holiday craft folder.

Since her blog is so popular Gabrielle has the opportunity to do a lot of great giveaways for her readers. All this week she's hosting some amazing giveaways. You should check them out. And if you think there isn't a point to entering giveaways I'm proof that someone has to win. I recently won a $100 giftcard to myretrobaby.com from her blog! I haven't decided what to spend it on yet but I was thrilled.
