Here are some cool blogs/sites I am watching right now, and what makes them rock:
Ikea Hacker is an interesting version of a DIY site, because the instructions aren't usually specific. It's more like, "Look at the cool, creative thing I made out of a and b. What can you do?" There are lots of things on this site that I wish I could make, and even a few I probably could (maybe even would) make, and if nothing else, it is a great source of creative inspiration. For example, the latest idea that I am actually considering for myself is the Money bank. You take a deep frame, put in a picture of what you are saving for (ie a trip to DisneyWorld), and you make a slot for money. So whenever you put money into the bank, you see your goal shine up at you! This would make a great gift for kids, I think.
Few things are as therapeutic as looking at yummy and funny pics of cupcakes. Don't believe me? Give it a try. Tell me these don't make your mouth water.
Seriously, these are hilarious. Laughter (and catharsis) is one of the things more therapeutic than cupcakes. You get to read the notes people leave behind, from subtle to brick-heavy, from polite to hateful, from gentle to ALL CAPS AND PUNCUATION!!!!! If they don't brighten your day from laughing, at least you can say, "Well, at least I don't have THAT problem..."
