First there were the crayons...and then the colored pencils....but it was the magic of the colored markers that got me truly hooked.

It was the pantone color wheel..the benjamin moore paints. It is the dazzling combination of colors that I see here every day on the screen.

I love color. It's bright. It's fun. It's beautiful. It can lighten up the darkest of grey days..brighten up the saddest of sad blues. But  - what I love most of all - are the names. They make me smile. They make me laugh. They make me wish to be that lucky one who gets to make them up.

So - here it is. The first of my many new year challenges. Simple color paired with my own designer names.

If you could - what name would you give this?
