About Me


My name is Kelly and I live on the Northside of Chicago with my husband and 7 year old son. I love being a mom. I love Chicago. I love good design. I love thinking about and working in the ever evolving world of media, digital networks, and pop culture. And, I love to read blogs. I was so inspired by the blogs that I loved, that in October of 2009, I started this one.

You see, I believe that all new and creative thinking comes from inspiration. Here you will find a collection of thoughts and ideas that have inspired me. I hope that you might come across something here, and are inspired with some new ideas of your own. If that happens, let me know! I would love to hear about it – so leave a comment or email me at collectedideas [at] me [dot] com.
