The Thursday distraction

Lately, I've been particularly easy to lead astray down the never ending path of distraction. Is it a combination of working from home and far off deadlines and the call of hot sexy weather outside? I'm not sure. What I do know is this; I've not felt this inspired to create in a while, so I'm going to go with that. I have dreams of getting a real grown up design here on Lanlettie (like dem real blogger ladies), studying community college courses, spending the day with my camera in Manito park, scrap booking(??!!?) or life journaling as the cool girls call it these days.  My thoughts seem more scattered and more far off than usual but it's as if the silent pull of where these thoughts go are creatively ordering themselves into a line... or a sentence. The kind of sentence that is easy to understand, a command to the next new, if that makes sense?

On that note, here are some of my distractors:  (firefox says that's not a word)

I love this post on African blog, Bright Continent, I like just about every post on that site, here 'The Others'. My imagination went wild.

Next time you need to be fancy and impressive as the entertainment diva you are, try making this homemade Roasted Tomato and Almond Dip. It's so easy and delicious!

I want most of these posters! Especially the Moonrise Kingdom ones.

I started having day dreams of us owning a cute little vintage trailer since our weekend camping trip. This post on a Beautiful Mess did not help such longings. I think we should buy this one and make it pretty.  Too many reasons why I'm thinking about it so much: I grew up camping in caravans with my family, I love the creative challenge of making something old into something new and pretty, we love camping, Amanda got me started on Craigslist. Pinterest search function.... dramatic sigh.


Still loving the 'Motherhood around the world' feature on Cup of Jo. This week is about parenting in Japan.  I love this series because it's got me wondering about what I'll find different once the babies show up.  Being raised the good ol fashioned Afrikaans way I wonder if I'll think American ways are weird. I guess I think that already...

Does floral art make you as happy as it does me? If so, go here now.

I leave you with this thought.

  Now let's all be ridiculously productive!


  1. I agree too. Can I have my eyes open all the time though?

    Going to leave myself with that thought too. Thanks! :)

  2. Thank you kindly for "The Others" mention:)

    All the best
