WOYWW - Working like a demon!

Good afternoon all you lovely people! Since last week I have marked one set of exam papers, gone on a school sports tour and spent some time with DH over the long weekend we had over here in South Africa. Been crazy busy, but I rewarded myself with some time in my play room to colour after finishing the exams, that is why my desk is looking like a tip!  
The first card is one that I finished a while ago. The image was quite a challenge, but I enrolled for the monthly create and Learn classes over at Kit and Clowder and even though I thought I was quite adept with my beloved Copic markers, I have learned so much from Alyce. Easy to follow video's and written instructions to follow and best of all? She gives the most wonderful feedback when you get stuck!
 The next card is one done with an image I coloured a while ago. No time to make cards, but always able to find some time to colour! The end result is a mountain of coloured images and an empty card box.
 And here is the results of my reward to myself. It took a very long time, but I am loving it so far. Now for those storm clouds in the background, yikes! If they turn out half decent, I will show you all next week. Now I am off to cook and then its back to marking the next set of exam papers.

Tomorrow morning My grandie is doing her first violin exam and she was adamant that I have to take her. She says mom makes her too nervous. LOL Wish me luck!
Remember to visit queen Julia to see all the wonderfully creative people from all over the world show off their amazing work desks, most of them a lot neater and far more inspiring than mine!


  1. Your desk looks so light and airy and happily busy. Such a pretty cards! Happy WOYWW! Sandy Leigh #43

  2. Gorgeous cards Tertia. Good luck to your grandie tomorrow [and you too of course].

  3. So glad to read it was not ALL work, but some play was involved, too. Glad you and hubby got to spend time together, too.

    Your desk doesn't look like a tip, but more like a busy person was working (OOPS, playing) there. Happy WOYWW from # 5.

  4. It is the greatest of therapies, colouring. You can really empty your mind and just 'be' ..... Amazingly important for you at this point in the year. I hope the violin exam is just a cool Grandma!!!

  5. Nice work space, Love it. Have a great woyww and happy crafting, Angela xXx 26

  6. I am the same way. I have all these colored images lying around. I need to make some cards. :-)

  8. Hi Tertia, happy WOYWW for yesterday, lovely colouring, I enjoy it too but nowhere near as good as you. Cheers have a great week, get those exams out of the way, RobynO#16

  9. I am a hopeless colourer - to slapdash I think. Your little images look so neat and clean! Hope the exam went well. x Jo

  10. Hi Tertia, beautifully coloured images! Smiled at your granddaughter- you are clearly a calming influence! Have a great week, Hugs, Shaz #15 xxx

  11. Ah good kind grandma ... Trust your little musician excelled herself :)
    Love colouring myself but somehow never get around to it... Funny aren't we the way we get into ruts?
    Well done on those works completed, or completing :)
    Happy belated WOYWW, Shaz in Oz.x #60
