WOYWW #405 {merged}

Happy Desk peeking day! You can find all the where to link up and play along details here at our hostess Julia's blog.
So, it finally happened I made a spot to sit down and color up here. I feel like I have not colored in so long I have forgotten how. so of course I did more behind the monster I started with below. Funny true story as I sit here and type this this morning there are 8 Ott lights in this room (3 are not in this angled shot below) but, yes the over head light was on when this was shot too so, maybe now it is more understandable when I call it the "cave" ( at some point when these windows up here are replaced with good ones I may move the desk over under the window near where I stage card shots.) 

 

 An angled view of "my corner" of the FROG ( finished room over garage) that I share with hubs the center of the room is a loveseat, another sofa table, coffee table and tv and the other corner (kitty corner to this one is his desk)

 So, to sit here the chair is in the walkway but, most of the time when I have time to color. I am the only person home and Grace can fit through behind the chair to get to her bed or anywhere else she decides to nap.

I seen this whippersnapper image during one of the coffee lovers blog hops ( its been months ago now) so, I really don't have a plan for it but, I did color a second one behind it with more shades of purple/blue. I also have not really touched these polychromos pencils either so, one thing I found it seemed to me the leads were firmer than my prisma pencils. or maybe it was just the whole really fine tips on them. I did order a new pencil sharpener last week that is maybe coming in today to try to get finer tips on my prisma pencils. I'll flash it later. I did play with some of the Oxide inks too and will do a second post behind this one with that so far findings. ( the bottom line is I do like them) :) There is only one color in the whole range at the moment that I may not play with much ( walnut) but, the other colors are all just beautiful. ( and that's probably just a mental wishing for Spring thing too, its not a bad color I am just over winter already) the other side of the desk, oxide inks first round & the new sharpener are in this post here. Thanks for stopping by!

What a lovely spot you have for crafty! Those colors look so happy there on the desk - so colorful & ready for spring!

We installed new LED daylight bulbs in my craft room & it's so bright & light that I actually say "ta-da" every time I turn the lights on! :|

FROG!! I love that term for the room = brilliant. What a fab space for you and the hubs to craft. Well done for making time to sit and colour, I'm very bad at doing that - there always seems to be other more important things to do.....

Wow - 8 Ott lights! I have one, and it's not even in my stamping room! Oh well. Your little FROG looks so comfy cozy! And those pencils - how beautiful is that photo! Thanks for sharing, Lindart #43

Great space to craft in! Wow that's a lot of Ott lights. I think I need a big one for my room. It doesn't get a lot of light. Love the image - I have that one. I coloured on it this week too.

Happy WOYWW
