How synchronistic a game can be!

I have just been tagged by Finki. The game is "The 6th in the 6th" game. It was just the kick in the pants I needed to write a blog post. I have had it in the back of my mind for ages (more like a demon on my shoulder really!!) that it was way past time that I blogged again. Hey, but you know how life gets...all hustle and bustle and next thing you know the holiday season is ancient history and it is nearly mid year again... Well thank you Finki...I am now on to it!

What you have to do for this game of tag is look in your picture folder and find the 6th folder in there and then go to the 6th picture...

My 6th folder is my colourlovers folder. I go to colourlovers to play.
BE CAREFUL...You must be warned...if you love colour you may never leave this site!
On this site you can create all sorts of colour combinations as palettes and then turn them into patterns. It is a great community of like minded people that chat on the forums, post wonderful colour related articles and just generally get creative!

My 6th image in my 6th folder is this one!



When you create a palette or pattern you get to name it and are forever accredited to being its creator...hee hee so much fun!

When I realised the name of this particular palette, ' Creating Peace', I realised how apt it was to today...inner turmoil for many of us and outer turmoil in world events, financial meltdowns, war and fighting, the most destructive bushfires in Australia's history, floods, blizzards and freezing conditions in other countries. We all need to create a sense of inner peace so that we can then manifest this as outer peace.

This colour combination has presented itself to me twice today. I did a consultation this morning for a custom order to provide swags and drapes in a pyschologists office. The requirements were to create a feeling of flowing peace and communication...reminiscent of water.
These were the exact colours we discussed!

So o.k universe I get the message...time for me to create some peace!!!!

The tag is to take part in the 6 by 6 game.
Choose the 6th image out of your 6th picture folder and blog it. Then tag 6 more people to do the same.
So watch out one of my 6 tags may be you!

creating peace. How fascinating that this pallette has come in to play so much today. I guess it's what the universe needs right now.

Thanks for sharing your sixth.

This is the first time I have visited your blog and the colours are beautiful. I have known your work from Etsy for a while - very nice. Can you tell me how to add the photos of my Etsy favourites to my blog as you have. Thanks, Lou.

'Ask the universe for something and she will provide'... funny how true this is! Peace is a lovely thing to be given.

Hi this is my first time here & I think that your blog is beautiful.
I love colour too!

My son at this early stage in his life associates some words with colour, like the days of the week and numbers & a lot more.
eg. Monday is an oragne word.

best wishes :-)

Leanne, Thanks for stopping in my blog. Those photos on my blog header are vintage cards that i have.. I collect them, and can't get enough of them.. I am happy that you feel so welcome at my blog, it is more on the simple side as i am not an expert at writting pretty words, or even to good at photographing. I am not putting myself down, i am just being me. lol.... I love all the wonder color here on your blog.. Those tie die scarfs and bags are just wonderful.. NOw those remind me of a time in my past as well. 70's..

Leanne Lonergan said...
