Kaisercraft Shares

Hi guys
Well after a long 9 days in hospital we are finally home for the weekend.  Emma is still feeling not the best but she sure was glad to be home for a couple of days.  She is now on nasal gastric feeding which is a big pain but it is stopping her from losing weight and that is the main concern. We head back up on Monday for her chemo (which includes a nights stay) and her radiation therapy.  She did not have radiation last week as she was in too much pain.

So now for the kaisercraft shares.  This month saw the release of Bonjour and 13th Hour.  Two awesome ranges with loads of possibilities.  I had fun creating with these.  The Bonjour range is just so beautiful and I am looking forward to creating more with it.

You guys are going to love November's releases.  Just adorable.

Will be back soon to share more and updates on Emma's progress.

God Bless

Emma Update

Today is day 6 in hospital due to acute mouth ulcers.  She is finally starting to pick up though so we are hoping that we are able to go home on Thursday. I know how painful it can be with just one small ulcer on my tongue but Emma's had them everywhere and they were huge!!!!  The doctors have put her on an incredibly strong pain killer which keeps her pretty dopey all day and night.   They have stopped her radiation therapy for this week and will resume it again next Monday.  I am so looking forward to getting home in my own bed.  I haven't slept under the same roof as my husband for almost two weeks now :-(  It is ok as in the grand scheme of things 40 weeks is really just a drop in the ocean.

Ok I will be back sometime on the weekend to share my Kaisercraft creations with you all.

God Bless

Hi guys

Just having a quick break from the hospital so thought I would post a long overdue post. 

Emma has been doing ok, she is struggling at the moment with severe mouth ulcers from the chemotherapy and her tongue is that sore and swollen that she cannot talk.  The radiation is going well although that is also making her mouth very sore.  I think we are all going to be so happy when this ordeal is well behind us.  My usual chirpy little munchkin is now so depressed and miserable.  I am hoping that they can fix her soon so that she is semi happy again.

I have been keeping up with my scrapping as much as possible.  Emma wanted me to make her a book about her journey so far but I haven't been able to tackle that one yet.  I just don't want to have to relive it all again.  I guess once things have settled down a bit I will be able to do it.  Luckily I have documented most of it here on my blog.

I have still be teaching classes at Kaisercraft Robina on Saturday mornings.  It is my much needed break and I really enjoy it.  I have included the last two things I taught for you to see.  This Saturday we will be making a 12 x 12 layout and card using velvet ensemble.  The class cost is $20 and includes everything you need to complete your projects. If you wish to come along then give the store a call on (07) 5580 9939.

I wanted to show you the other project we made too but I cannot find a full picture of it.  Above is the letter rack that we made last week.  This girls finished products were fantabulous.
The pictures below are a sneek peak of next weeks class.  Love this frame and I am sure you guys will too.

Anyway I have finished my lunch and sent the emails that I had to do so now I am heading back up to the hospital to sit with my little chickenlegs.  Hope this post finds you all happy, healthy and wise
God Bless

Chemo & Radiation Therapy & Classes :-)

Well on Monday Emma started her radiation therapy and so far she is doing a great job.  I would love to say the same thing about her chemo but she is struggling at the moment.  We were meant to stay in overnight on Monday while she had her chemotherapy but we are still there.  She started to get fevers on Monday night and she just didn't pick up.  They decided to put her on IV antibiotics and see how she went with that.  Today she has been fever free (Praise God) so hopefully if all goes well we should be out tomorrow.  She is so miserable and grumpy.  I hope it is not going to be like this for the whole 40 weeks as I think I will be a nervous wreck by the end.

I have been busy trying to get my scrapping done when I get a spare minute or two........(not many of those at the moment)  I have a wonderful class happening on Saturday morning at Kaisercraft Robina.  The cost is $30 with everything supplied.  Sneak peaks below.......

You will be creating this gorgeous Kaisercraft letter rack using the equally gorgeous Blae & Ivy range of papers.  Hope to see you there.
Classes can be booked by phoning Kaisercraft Robina on  07 5580 9939 .
