A Few Treats for the Hospital

I haven't been very active on my blog lately.  I do plan to reappear.  I love my blog and I don't want to give it up. I am going to slow down a little and maybe only post 2 times a week once the new year comes.  If you keep up with my blog I have had a few health problems this fall.  I think are are a few that do.  I've gotten such nice notes from a lot of you.  In early September and late August, I fell ill with Covid.  Yes, I had my vacination.  I believed I would not have a bad case, but it got the better of me.  I entered the Emergency Room for oxygen and ended up  on 2nd floor for 3 days at Catawba Valley Hospital.  They were wonderful to me.   The Covid cough finally went away by the end of September.  In late October I developed a different cough.  I usually get one every fall.  It was relentless.  On November 1st, I had a stroke.  This time I was back in the Emergency Room by ambulance.  I received the wonder drug TPA crush.  I'm almost back to normal after a stay in the ICU 6th floor and later moved to the Stroke floor 4th.  I was there 3 days again.  And again everyone was so nice!

In appreciation, I've been working on treats to take to the hospital.  I don't do this for compliments, so don't.  I feel these people work so hard for us and sometimes they just aren't told how important they are.  I'm going to show you what I made but the ideas are not new.  I pulled from some ideas several years old.  They were great sellers back when I had a booth at a local store.

First of all, I did have to order the chocolate.  I couldn't find them in local stores around here due to all of the shipping mess.  Thanks to Amazon, I did get what I wanted.

Rolo Snowman  Fingers from gloves  Christmas to Remember  Inspired Thoughts  Jo Anne Hewins  Luv 2 Create

These snowmen are made with a pack of Rolo Chocolates.  The Basic White card stock measures 4 1/4 x 3 1/2.  Put tear and tape on one long side and then roll up and secure with the tape.  The stamp set is old.  It's called Snow Day.  I have used this so much over the years.  I used Memento Black, Real Red, and Pumpkin Pie pads.  The hats of the snowmen are cut off fingers from children's cheap gloves.  Just pull down over the head and roll them up for the bottom of the hat.  You might want to secure with glue dots.  The scarf is 8 inches of the Black and White Gingham Ribbon found in the current mini catalog.  I used twine from a recent Paper Pumpkin to tie on the tags.  I do believe the topper punch for the tag is retired, but there are current ones in the annual catalog.  The front of the tag has a saying from Christmas to Remember.  The back has 2 sayings from the Inspired Thoughts stamp set.  You make a difference every day.  and  Thank you so much!

These to the Emergency Room.  They helped me two different times and they got me the miracle medicine in time.

Hershey Nuggets  Jo Anne Hewins  Luv 2 Create

The second treat was made using Hershey Nuggets.  Almost everything I used was retired for this.  The paper used for this was the recent Peaceful Place Sale-a-Bration Designer Series Paper.  Cut the strips to 1 x 3.  Put Seal down the length and then wrap around the nuggets starting at the bottom.  I made a tray for the nuggets using Real Red card stock cut to 2 x 5 1/2 and scored on each long side at 1/4.  Add Seal down the middle of the tray not quite to the ends to secure the nuggets.  At one time Stampin' Up! sold 2 inch wide bags.  I think they were 6 x 8.  I had a lot of these left and that is what I used.  The Pom Pom ribbon was bought on Clearance a while back.  I found this ribbon very hard to work with, but they were perfect for this.  I wound the ribbon around itself as tightly as possible around the poms and it stayed.  The tags for these were the same as above.  These go to floors 2 Covid floor, 4 Stroke floor, 6 ICU.  I thank them so very much!

I apologize for my 2 week absence.  I did have a stroke on November 1.  I was one lucky lady and received the TPA crush meds.  They reversed most of my symptoms.  I'm sleeping a lot lately,but all movement is back.  I am slowing down.  Thanks so much for your support over the years!  I hope you'll continue to follow me!
