Alone at last for WOYWW

I am alone at last!!!
My mother in-law has gone home
and little miss  is finally
back at school.

You can't see me but I am dancing around the room,
the peace is wonderful,
I have a huge grin on my face
and I'm ready to draw and paint my heart out.

I have been working on two desks today.
One for painting and drawing
and the other for doing up templates to 
put inside note books.

I have designed three more Egberts
and painted them today.
All I have to do this afternoon is
to ink in the details.

They don't look much until the ink is on
but I think they will make cute note book covers.

On this desk is my inside covers ideas and the start of some
more Egberts..

It looks a bit boring but I am amazed that I managed
to print a page of sticky address thingys
and it lined up first time.

I hope to take them down to the Collective Store to sell
and I might even put some on the Etsy shop,
if the weight doesn't make them too expensive for postage.

Well I'm off to ink some Egberts,
with a huge grin on my face.

Why not hop on over to Julia's
Stamping Ground and see what
everyone else is doing on their desk today.


  1. You better hope the huge grin doesn't go noticed by the 2 women in your life, lol You may get into trouble! waving hi from the hills of North Carolina #50, unless someone removes a link, lol

  2. yahoo for term 3... don't you just love the serenity!!!! I am finally getting a bit of time to paint, but I am clearing the decks for the next two days and going at it as much as I can.... loving the Egberts... and can't wait to see them inked in... too cute...xx

  3. Oooh I can see why you are grinning - the artwork is fabulous! I too have a day in to myself today - last one for weeks so I am very excited too!

  13. It is the little things in life that please us most - spare time all to ourselves, the straight printed labels - not earth shattering but important nonetheless!!
    Love your Egberts - he makes me laugh!
    Hugs, LLJ ~70 xx

  14. I bet you're enjoying some real quality "me" time Vonnie! I love all your paints and interesting stuff on your desk, and nice to see Egbert making an appearance again!

    Thanks for your visit to my blog. Glad you like my inky fun. The first thing I shall do is make up some of the flowers. Lots of potential with these inks!

    Happy WOYWW,

  15. Crafty alone time is the best!

    Love your little Egbert's :)

  16. Whoo hoo! I am excited for you! There is nothing like the place to yourself and time to play. I do like my hubby but I do like him gone too, I completely understand.

    Egbert is just such a sweety. I love to see him.

    Congrats on the labels lining up correctly. Even using the right label template doesn't seem to work anymore. What is up with that?!

  17. Sounds like you have been let off the leash to run about & play ! Great to see all your designs in progress & the lovely paintiness of your desk ! Ali#53

  18. Oh I remember that feeling so well Von,
    I was doing a little dance yesterday because I got a sale in my Etsy! Yay!
    I'm keeping the phrase 'slowly, slowly wins the race' in my head!
    Egbert looks too cute for people to resist and don't you just love it when a design starts to run away with you. ;D
    Enjoy your dance and drawing (lol)
    I can't say have fun like I usually do because you already are!!!

  19. Egbert seems to be developing an international persona. Hope the grin lasts for awhile.

    Egbert is very cute indeed. He's just as nosey as we are.
