Color your World – 120 Days of Crayola 2017 (year 2)

cyw 2017 badge

Year number 2 is here and you all have spoken – this year we will keep the same format as last year 120 days, 120 colors. 1 color each day for 4 months.


Color your world is a 4 month long daily blogging challenge event. Each day has a new color theme based on a crayon color in Crayola’s box of 120 crayons. The challenge runs January 1, 2017 to April 29, 2017.

View all color prompts below, or follow along daily as I post a blog per color.

Your contribution can come in any form – art, poetry, flash fiction, a tale of a miscellaneous memory – anything, the only caveat – it has to be inspired by the color of the day. You can join in every single day or simply post at your leisure.

Comment back on the daily prompt post with a link to your contribution and tag your post #coloyyourworld and #cyw so that other participants can see what you’ve come up with. Be sure to follow #coloryourworld and #cyw in your reader as well if you’re a WordPress user.

Oh dear…

I promised myself I wouldn’t write any more apology posts…but here goes.

As many of you know I have a day job, with us being down a staff member (actually 3 at the moment, but that’s another story), I’ve been doing the work of 2, maybe even 2.5 people and have been so overwhelmed. I get home and am ready to do nothing, and while I’ve taken the time to schedule the Color Your World posts, I’m a few days behind on the A to Z challenge (J, K & L to be exact), and even forgot, for the first time ever, to post the One Word Photo Challenge post this past Tuesday.

My goal list still includes making the rounds to all your OWPC contributions from Bear to the present and at least visiting and enjoying, if not commenting on many of your CYW posts. I’ve also missed having conversations with each of you through your comments here and my comments on your posts, I’ll come back to center and be a good blogging friend again soon, pinky promise.

I thank each and every one of you for posting without much support or encouragement on my end. From the posts I have made it to, I am inspired by your beautiful work.


Color Your World – Spring Green


I know a lot of you loved the 1st portion of the One Word Photo Challenge in which all the prompts were color words. For those of you that miss posting your colorful content, here’s a brand new challenge for you!

The Color your World challenge will run January through April, for 120 days, with a new Crayola color topic posting each day. Join in daily, or post at your leisure.

Enter your photos, drawings, quotes, poems, stories, anything, as long as it has to do with the color of the day.

Since this is a daily challenge, I will not have time to compile a link list daily for participant entries, however, (1) tag your post #coloryourworld so others can follow along in the reader, (2) share your link in the comment section of each color post and (3) sign up on the home page. When you fill out the form on the home page, a link to your blog will be added at the bottom of that post – that way other participants can find all your challenge posts.
