For years I've been delaying the process of starting a blog. After having lunch today with Diane G. I realized that it wouldn't be as difficult as I thought. So here we go..........
I love color, it is important to my everyday life. Red makes me think of my grandmother, who painted all the outdoor furniture red at the cottage. Orange is a warm color that lifts my spirits. Blue was my first favorite that makes me think of water. My bedroom has just been painted green, the color of grass, leaves and my garden. It's the color of summer. Black eyed susans are yellow or gold. The BES in my garden were transplanted from the cottage at Winona Lake, IN. Purple goes wonderfully with green.
Color governs my fabric choices for a quilt and choosing the thread to embroider and quilt it. It's why a pick a kleenex box over another on the shelf at the store. I love bright colored socks. Every morning when I get dressed, I choose the appropriate color socks for the day. The really colorful ones are for rainy days. Today I'm wearing purple, and it's sunny outside today.
Surround yourself with colors you love. You will feel better and it will enhance your creative spirit. If you don't nurture your own creativity, no one else will. Make a commitment to try and live a life that will inspire that creative light inside of you. You will live happier.
