When I sit down to write a new post it is hard to not get distracted by all the interesting blogs about style and fashion for older women. It is empowering to see unfettered joy in dress and style that is apparent in their posts.

Today I got distracted by this wonderful blog I had forgotten about (I don’t always remember to look at my feeds to see what’s new). A Colourful Canvas. The author has on a wonderful sky blue coat with white polka dots that she made from a pattern by this pattern designer closet case.

That led me to look at closet case patterns and her wonderful ideas about sharing on her website – sew alongs and photos of beautiful women wearing her bombshell swimsuit.

Then I got distracted by a link on another site to a site where women buy and sell clothes from each others closets (although I haven’t investigated deeply enough to see if there are also manufacturers on there).

And then there’s polyvore and pintrest and facebook and……….

Now I have spent 45 minutes enriching my bookmarks page and don’t have time to experiment with the muslin I am trying to correct for my new jacket pattern. Let alone clean the house or put on makeup.

How do you manage to browse the web for ideas without drowning? How do you find time to work on your own projects or clean the house? How do you focus on getting the most out of each day in this fabulous world of information that we live in? How do you find the time to walk out the door looking put together?

I look forward to getting your ideas.
