Why Didn’t I Think of That? Wallpaper That You Color In

Color in wall paper. Why didn’t I think of that? I love this product. It’s from NineteenSeventyThree.

One of my fondest memories of childhood is receiving my Easter coloring book from the Easter Bunny. The coloring book stood at least 2 feet tall. I would spend days coloring in it, occasionally with my sister, but most often by myself in my closet. I know that sounds odd, but I guess I could lay the coloring book flat on the floor and not walk over it. Second on my Easter wish list was always an inflatable Easter Bunny. This bunny rivaled the coloring book in size. The blowup Easter Bunny would gradually deflate by summertime.

I don’t consider myself a very creative person when it comes to drawing. My sketches are crude and basic. My people are stick figures. My houses look like the house on Blues Clues. My animals — well don’t get me started on my animals — let’s just say my animals have 4 legs, a tail, and a head. My drawing it is not pretty. My coloring is another story.

I still doodle in the margins of my notebooks. It was a little embarrassing to be observed doodling in a conference about my daughter. I still love helping my children to color in their coloring books. I still buy far too many coloring books for American Girl, Spider Man, My Little Pony, Barbie, Disney Princesses, Rescue Heroes, and the list goes on.

Another fond memory is the set of Caran D’ache pencils or markers from Father Christmas. I dearly loved the tinbox of markers. I would carry it around for weeks. I never took the markers to school. I guess I had a second set for school?

This color in wallpaper is not cheap at $60 a roll, but it would be oh so fun to have on my wall. Now what room would I put it one…the bathroom wall perhaps? Which wall would you put this wallpaper on?
