When I was a little girl, one of the career ambitions I had was to be a color crayon creator. I wanted to invent new colors for Crayola and also name them. Think about it: somebody out there has that job. For real. Frankly, I’d still like to have that job.
And now I sort of do! There’s a fabulous new app out called iCrayonMaker, and yeah, perhaps it is designed for kids, but let me tell you, I’m having lots of fun with it! With this app you get to custom create different crayons and then build your own personal crayon box. You guys wouldn’t believe the fabulous blue gray color I’ve already whipped up. It’s positively dreamy and I want to color my whole house with it! Not really joking, folks…
As part of the app, you can color with your crayon, and use it in crayon, felt marker or glitter, which makes the final product look even more awesome. Darah and I have been working on shapes, numbers and a few basic words (we’re doing that teach your baby to read program…too early to tell if it really works).
This app is available on the iPhone and also has a version for the iPad, which we especially love. The iPad becomes a giant canvas to be filled with swirls and squiggles. You can save your masterpieces as wallpaper or email them to yourself or others. What a fabulous (and paper-free) way to capture your little one’s artwork!
Get it!: iCrayonMaker has a free version that you most definitely should download! You can upgrade to the full version for just .99! GREAT BUY!!!

My answer: Besides my beloved new blue-grey color, I also loved this color we had in our old house. It was called chocolate froth, and if you can imagine what the bubbles from a chocolate milk look like right after you mix it up, that was the color! Gorgeous!
