Web Coolness – Cool gifts, recycled crafts, and a potluck idea that has us giggling

eCreamery custom ice creamHere’s some stuff we’ve liked reading around the web this week. Maybe you will too.

This week on Babycenter, we share one of the coolest shower gift ideas ever. Literally.

AlphaMom introduces us to fantastic craft projects for kids that recycle what’s in your kids’ lunchboxes.

We love this idea at Serious Eats for throwing a Lunch Lady Potluck. Especially with Thomas Keller’s chocolate chip cookie recipe.

Thanks in part to all of your help, one dad blogger’s Cure Juvenile Myostitis proposal for Pepsi’s Refresh Everything grant is now in second place! That’s like, insane. You can vote directly for Cure JM on the Pepsi site, or through their Facebook app and do a whole lot of good for a whole lot of kids.

In Adweek, a big story on the success of organic clothing. Yay!

We just discovered a site called Consignment Mommies that helps you track down seasonal consignment sales in your neighborhood to help you keep your kids stylish for less.

Time Magazine names the 50 best websites of 2010 and we’re so happy to see friend Gabby Blair of Design Mom make the cut. (Presumably Cool Mom Picks was number 51, of course.)
