Lovely Links

Have a Lovely Weekend

Google Reader isn’t closing until July, but it seems everyone is already jumping ship. If you haven’t found a new reader yet, I would suggest Feedly. It functions very similar to GR, but looks a lot better. Also, it’s really simple to transfer over your GR subscriptions. For some strange reason, my site is listed as dormant when you search it. If you’re not feeling Feedly, I’ve heard good things about Old Reader. They’re having some capacity issues because before Google announced they were closing, it was a relatively small site. Then of course there is Bloglovin.

While I’m on the topic of suggestions, I came across this great app this week called GIF Brewery. It takes videos and turns them into animated GIFs while also letting you crop, resize, and add text. It’s pretty great, and only five bucks so I figured it’s worth mentioning. So far I’ve only made GIFs out of videos of Eames, definitely money well spent (right?). I hope you guys have a great weekend! Here are a few links I’ve been meaning to share, and a few I found this week:

What are you guys up to for the holidays? We are looking forward to relaxing, and enjoying time together! This is the last post for 2012, so I did something a little different. Normal Friday links, but I’ve also included a few things we are looking forward to finishing and sharing next year. We will be back Monday the 7th! See you then.

What are you guys up to this weekend? We hit a snag in the project were working on. So, we’ll be working on some design related stuff instead! I’ve included a link to Draplin’s talk for Yay Festival. He’s got quite the mouth on him, but seems like such a genuine guy. It was very inspiring. Hope y’all have a wonderful weekend. Here are some links for your Friday:
