The Crew’s Development | Part One

When I was pregnant with Rudi and baby room decor was on the cards, I wanted to create some silly monster characters for his bedroom. I have written the character sketches then already but never got around to creating them. I finally started! Here is the rough...

Belonging to a sisterhood

When the word sisterhood gets thrown around one immediately thinks of crazy chicks dancing around a fire, throwing sparkly stuff from rusted buckets while humming songs no one has ever heard of. Magic. Rituals. Enchanted stuff. Well, let me tell you something, it is...

Do one thing every day that scares you

Do one thing every day that scares you. I have been stuck on this line for months now. I am not saying I am not afraid of anything... in fact... My list is fairly long when I sit down and think about all the stuff I am petrified of. But to actually do one thing that...

Song of the Moment | Like Teenage Gravity

As with everything else, I go through music phases too. I will find or rediscover a song and listen to it at least three times a day until I know the lyrics off by heart and can sing it to the tiny human at bedtime without having to mime. I am a die-hard Counting...

Working from home challenges

Working from home is awesome. You know, you get to spend the day in PJ's, you can eat over your keyboard and come and go as you please. But there are also some challenges no one tells you. Like having a 10-cups-a-day filter coffee budget. And a fancy gin budget for...

I finally smudged something other than paint!

For some time there has been an overflow of smudging and "not enough sage in the world" and why you need to smudge posts in my Pinterest feed. Of course, repetition makes things stick (no pun intended) with you for longer. So, I read up on this whole smudging thing,...

I’m not frustrated. I’m annoyed.

It's Friday afternoon, 15:46. I am about to cry for the fourth time this week. Why? Because I am annoyed. I cry for six reasons: When I am sad - duh. When I am over-tired. When I miss my mom. And when I am angry, annoyed or frustrated. Of course, most of these have to...

How to fix puffy, tired eyes

I have been on a mission finding a solution to make the circles under my eyes less, well, black. And the puffiness less puffy. I am all for experiments and am quite daring when it comes to fix-it-out-of-the-kitchen-cupboard remedies. I saw a pin that said something in...

Hello! I am Lana.

I am a graphic designer during office hours and a unicorn whisperer the rest of the time. I am the mother of one tiny human, the wife of a reasonably normal husband and a passionate lover of colour. I keep myself busy with design work mostly and often have to asdkj hj (sic) share my keyboard with my child. I am the creator of the artwork, Chaos. I strive for inner peace and hope to be remembered as a tornado; mayhem with a harmonious heart.

My primary goal in life is to keep my ducks on the same farm (if they are even ducks?!) If there is a quicker way to do it, I will know about it. If not, I will find one. No matter the question, my answer is always family. And friends. And coffee. And gin.
