It's Wednesday again and time for artists all over the World to share what is on their work desk for What's On Your Work desk Wednesday-WOYWW. If you would like to join in or read about this please for to Julia's blog here. This week there isn't much change to last week as hubby has been home for his 9 days off and we have been sharing some much needed time together. He flies out again this Friday and will be away for another 28 days. As we hope to move interstate at the end of the year we are trying to go to some of our fav spots here when he has his 9 days home time. I'll pop some shots of the desk up first and the progress I made on the puffy steam punk heart till Grant arrived last Thursday. Under those shots will be some photos of a little trip we did while Grant was home this time. At the end I'll share why my jewellery went away for photos as well!

Where I am up too so far with the steam punk puffy heart :o)

Some mail that arrived from Retro Cafe art...I so love that shop!!

Some wildlife and nature shots from our little trip to Victoria River and Timber Creek. There were these gorgeous metallic looking beetles on a night spotting walk to Joe creek which is near Victoria River Roadhouse where we stayed (approx 500kms from our home).

 Aboriginal rock art at Joe Creek

and a cute little frog.

The next day we went to Timber Creek (600kms from home) and did a river cruise where we saw salt water crocodiles...

This one has had enough to eat I would say!!

We also saw birds... 2 Jabiru stalks and a freshie crocodile at their feet!

birds on the wing as the boat passed by

 A beautiful sea eagle

Whistling kite

Lovely scenerey

Whistling kite nest

and a beautiful goanna.

Here is my jewellery back after its photographic session

The reason my jewellery went away is I'm soon to announce the opening of my own web site where I shall sell my hand made jewellery. The site has been made for me by Bevlea Ross who does amazing website work. It's live now but I wont share the link yet as I need to check out all the details and make sure its all tweeked and then I shall shout it out. I'm so excited about it!!

Sounds like your web site will soon be up and running. You make fantastic jewelry, so I know it will be a success. Love that steampunk heart, too.

Had fun with you on your nature "walk." Really enjoyed seeing how different your scenery is from mine here in the States. Happy WOYWW from #2.

Congrats on opening your own Webstore. Wishing you much success
