I always knew the different colours had the potential to affect one's mood, but never had I felt it so much as the time I walked into an office that was painted purple, had purple carpeting, and purple furniture.
The result was electrifying. The room has so much energy that when I left an hour later, I was exhausted! I have no doubt the office staff got a lot of work done in that environment, but at what cost at the end of the day? I have serious doubts they had any energy left for evening activities.
This may be an unusual example, but it does demonstrate the impact colours can have. When you wear red, do you feel your confidence level rise? Or if you're agitated, do you find you gravitate to greens or blues to help put some calmness in your day?
My clothes closet used to be a mess. I had tried organizing it by clothing type, as recommended by the organizing professionals, but that didn't work for me. It wasn't until I put my clothes in order of colour that I was able to keep it tidy. And it's been tidy now for years. I realized that each morning, while deciding what to wear, it was actually a colour choice I was looking for first. And my eyes would go to that colour in the closet, conscious or not.
Notice the colours you choose today, the colour you choose to wear, colours of rooms you are in. And how do they make you feel?

It's taken years to discover the medium I enjoy the most. And how what I have learned before somehow fits into what I am doing now. Even when I travel my needles and threads are with me so I can continue to create while away.
