Look What I Made

As you know, my husband was out of town when Tyler's accident happened. Our family lives out of town so I called one of my husband's co-workers right after I found out and she drove the girls & me to the hospital. It was such a great help, considering I was really in no condition to be driving. Mary was right there - giving directions to my father-in-law to get to the hospital, taking Taylor & Tess to the cafeteria so they could eat something, driving Tess to stay overnight at a friend's house, etc.

I wanted to show Mary how much I appreciated her kindness to us so I made her a candy bouquet! I also made a card for her. I took it into work today and she really liked it - yay! Several people commented they thought it was pretty neat :)

I'm also in the process of making a few more - one for the pediatric floor at the hospital and another for the mom of Tess's friend who cared for Tess for a few days.

Here's the website where I originally got the idea for the candy bouquets -

I used some of those ideas as a basic guide and just added my own creativity.

I'll be sure to post pictures of the other finished candy bouquets. Try making'll have fun!
