Different Type of Sweet Christmas Card

This year, we didn't have a chance to send out Christmas Cards.  We relocated to Baltimore while my husband is having treatment at Johns Hopkins.  There are so many people here that we wanted to say Merry Christmas to so I ordered a bunch of larger Chocolate Bars (the 4.5 oz size) and created custom labels.

When I printed out the labels at the place we are staying, the printers only had black ink.  That's OK, for some reason I packed Christmas Colors of Stickles glitter tubes.  I used those to add color to our unconventional Christmas Cards.

On the back of the bars, is a personalized message thanking the recipient for their part in our stay here and wishing them and their families a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.  They turned out much better than the photos turned out.

Christmas Pillow Cases

I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving.  I was able to make a few Christmas themed pillows to take with us to the place we are staying near the hospital.  I also made a set of Mistfit Toys pillowcases as a surprise for my husband.  We love the misfit toys from the story Ruldolf.  I think that will make him smile while we are away for Christmas.





Other than that, I've just been packing and weeding things out.  It will be a very small hotel/apt room we will be staying at for about 8 weeks near the Johns Hopkins hospital in Baltimore Maryland.  Right now with only a few days before my husband's treatments start, we are on the waiting list for housing.  Hopefully we hear something today!  We could not have done this without the help of friends/family staying at our home, watching our animals etc.

Thanks to Maggie's post over at Patchmaker's Quilts, I now have an endless supply of crochet patterns to choose from.  I've bookmarked a lot of blogs to keep up with while we are away.  Keep up the great crafts!!
