Cute or just OK?

I've been trying to come up with an image of objects arranged to represent a color wheel. I've seen color wheels made out of sneakers, flip flops, cocktail umbrellas, hair bows… all very cute. However, I want to make one out of objects that I already I own, which is harder.

So far, I've got this:

I don't arrange flowers well—perhaps this is a similar skill? If I had more time to give it, I'd go out and about to shops and use objects there as props but I really don't have the time it would take. 

I was visiting with a younger friend the other night trying to explain that I have hit an age where I know I will not get to do everything that I would like to do. Even though I hope to live many more years, I am trying to use my days more thoughtfully—less frittering away of time. I do believe that this is not something I'm going to spend any more time on :-).

Yay! It feels nice to mark that off the list.

  1. I love it the way it is! And I totally get what you mean about spending your time more thoughtfully…I can fritter away with the best of them, but I, too, have had the same awakening as you. Have a good rest of the day.


  2. I love it and it makes me smile. I know what you mean about time. This time last year I had an operation for colon cancer. One of my thoughts, before I knew what stage it was, ” Oh, no I have too many quilts that need to be finished”. I am very blessed that I am cancer free and have started getting my UFO’s done. Also, I certainly need to make better use of my time.


  3. My word for 2014 is Mindful. I agree with you, it’s time to start thinking what CAN get done Prioritizing does not come naturally to me!


  4. I love it because it works for quilters–we can all make a similar one on our own and sometimes that is the best way to understand color.


  5. ThAnk you! I turn 50 next week and I too have started realizing that, while I hope I have a lot of time left, that I need to seriously start hitting the bucket list – even prioritizing. I had NOT, however, thought to start minimizing or simplifying time “thiefs”. Life – amazing how it seems we all go through certain cycles or revelations or rights of passage. ~ Kat


  6. It’s a mark of wisdom to know when to call it a day. Anyhow, the only person you have to please is you. So, when you’re good with it (whatever “it”is), it’s done.
