Christmas Season

Here I sit on Sunday 27th December at home with hubby. Not quite as I planned it. We got the camper set up on Wednesday 23rd at the Van Park...check...I knew Trevor was in pain because his last chemo was 10 weeks ago but I was positive and hopeful that we would get this last week with the family before he had his chemo again.. Well we got the shopping done on Xmas Eve, I got to spend a lovely few hours with my daughter Lauren just us two catching up on lots of chatter and goss over our breaky at the coffee shop..Xmas lunch was casual as my other daughter and son in law had to work so our special dinner was at night...Yay made it through!!!
A bit of   Tom Foolery happening here with his funny scottish hat lol

These are two of the bracelets i sold as xmas gifts which I was very excited about so I have much to be grateful for don't get me wrong
By Boxing Day we decided to take Trevor to the emergency department to get some help with his pain..
By george those Fentanyl shots work a treat!!! Sadly they wear off...he thought he was invincible for a few hours yesterday making all sorts of plans to go back to the Van Park.
Not happening....we are at home which is the most comfortable place for him to be...I am looking at my design plans for the BALC to keep my sanity...
My frustration levels are off the scale just now because he made a bad mistake not having the chemo while he could and would have been so much better for Xmas.
What's done is done though.
I don't mean to bring anyone down with this blog as on a positive note I gained back time I wouldn't have had if I was in the Van Park....all my lovely pretties are here around me in my craft room which I can retreat to at any time for a little release...I'm hoping for better news by Tuesday when I will be insisting on seeing the Oncologists and pushing for his chemo to be done a week earlier than scheduled..
Wish me luck with that our public hospital system we have to take what we are private cover so its the free hospital system for us...
I have so many design ideas twirling around my tiny mind its awesome!!!! Can't wait to start on the 5th and share good news with you all then
Love and light

The Silly Season

It's that time of year again when everyone presses the panic button as the time draws closer to Xmas Day. I am not immune from this either. This year I have been kept busy making last minute orders which are for gifts so I haven't even started wrapping my gifts yet. I will probably be doing it Xmas Eve as usual.
I am so very excited about starting the Build a Line Challenge on the 5th of January I can't seem to focus on anything else.
I have been working on the December Challenge of Mixed Metals Media in preparation for the course. I am hoping it will help me get into the groove for what's to come.
Here are a few bracelets I have been busy creating and are proving very popular. I hope you like them.

I wish each and every one of you a very Merry Xmas and a Happy and Holy New Year and look forward to catching up in the New Year

Getting My Ducks in a Row

I realize this is not the venue for personal stuff but as the class had not yet started i thought I  would just let you know that my husband had good news on the chemotherapy efficacy. His tumours have shrunk significantly in his lungs and even in his bones. This is the best possible news to be given for a bad situation if you know what I mean.
So as it turns out he is having a break until 4 jan 2016..yes one day before my BALC Challenge I will be fully occupied to keep my mind off his situation..I won't have time to smother him like he says i do 
Can't wait to start and I am entering the December Challenge to get me revved up!
Until next we meet be kind to yourself

In a Spin

Just popping in to check on a few changes I have been making to my blog layout. I've been trying to think of what would be most relevant to share at this point in proceedings. As you can imagine there are dozens of ideas and thoughts whirling around in my head. I am sure I'm not the only one feeling like this.
Fortunately I have been kept busy filling a lot of orders ready for Xmas. It's good to be busy but I keep harking back to what I need to be preparing for start of class.
Lots going on here with doctors appointments for hubby and an anxious wait this week to find out if chemo is effective. So that may explain the spin I am in.
All in all I am so anxious to begin the class and share with my "mates"
Best away and get some sleep even though I am abuzz
Wishing you love and light

New Direction

It's been quite some time since I have written in my blog. To bring you up to date why I have taken to blogging again is I am about to embark upon an adventure of a lifetime in my opinion. I am hoping to be accepted into a course which is called Build A Line Challenge which is an online course over three months where I will be learning from a professional how to take my jewellery making to a new height. I am a little nervous and apprehensive as to how I will be cope as it is quite intensive but I really believe I would benefit greatly from the experience . Thanks for taking the time to read my news and I hope you will continue to stop by and hear all about my trials and tribulations along the way on my journey. I Would appreciate your comments as I need my blog to be functioning well before I start.
Cheers and may you shine every day
