so lets get to it : Part One

I am ready to get this Design Mommy thing started... I feel like jumping into it and letting it grow as it grows. This is a community I'm trying to build here, and I'm only going to start with the basics.

Just to refresh you, Design Mommy will be a blog community where people can
• send in questions about materials, tools, processes, etc.
• send in-process artwork/graphics/craft for constructive criticism
• write editorials about the arts, or whatever makes sense
• any other ideas?
to be answered by the blog contributors and anyone out there who feels up the the challenge.

Basic One - We need a name.
Let's not kid ourselves. Design Mommy won't really work for what I have in mind.
I'm brainstorming...
• Art Support
• Take a step back
• Crafty Fixes
• Artful Solutions
• Adventures in Creationing
• Adventures in Making
• Help me, I'm stuck.

I'm not sure anything's really doing it for me, so I need you help to ride this mania-driven creating frenzy.

(Although I'm liking Adventures in Making.... and it spells AIM which is fun...)


  1. I like Adventures in Making, too, though I don't know if it's quite right... If it ends up the winner, I'm thinking the logo needs to be like an old school hardy boys' illustration, though. Just saying.

    Artful Solutions is a no go, and I'll tell you why some other time.
    Adventures in Creationing sounds like we're pretending to be deities.

    I'm super excited about this, but you better still come to my house to critique my latest projects.


  2. How 'bout Tube City?!?! or Shoelala?!?! Not what you're really going for uh...then Help me I'm stuck!
