What's on your Workdesk Wednesday? #651


Wednesday again, so I am linking to the Stamping Ground

Follow the link to find out more about What's on Your Work Desk Wednesday and maybe join in... This is my post for WOYWW #651

No pictures from home this week. At the weekend, Sophie and I went to a Champainting session at Melbourne Aquarium. We enjoyed looking around all the exhibits and then painted jellyfish, and were plied with champagne and nibbles.

At Sophie's we also did some water colour painting...

This is what I did with my images:

Finally we have had acceptance of our building permit - and building should start this week...
We were given a gift by the development company!

Look at these beautifully wrapped parcels of craft items that I received from Natalie May
What's inside you ask?

Finally a picture from the Australian Garden which is just next to where we will live...

Hope you are all well - stay safe...

Happy WOYWW !! Hope to call on all of you this week...

  6. Congrats on the permit! Woo Hoo! And I love your wildflowers. What fun, and some nice final projects too. I can see each tag as a topper for say a get well soon or thinking of you or any card really. A great stash for last minute requirements LOL!
