Blessing Mix

Good afternoon!  This is what I did while sitting at the hospital yesterday.  I had an order for 100 Fancy Favor Boxes for Blessing Mix for a church in Dix, IL. Most of the papers are retired as well as some of the card stock but they didn't mind as long as I used Fall colors.

On a personal note...my husband was doing a little better yesterday but today we got some worrisome news...one of his lungs is almost clear from the pneumonia but the left lung is a lot worse.  They have started the fourth antibiotic and will do a lung biopsy tomorrow.  He is very worried and so am I but I can't let him know so I have had to put on my "acting" hat and pretend this is just a routine procedure.  Prayers are MUCH appreciated.

UPDATE:  I have had several request for the ingredients of the Blessing mix so here is a photo of the the poem.  Click on the photo to enlarge it.
I got this idea from Angie Juda several years ago and we make it every year.  The mix is Bugles, Pretzels, Candy Corn, nuts, and fruit(I use Cranberry Craisins).  Hope this helps.

The beautiful colors of your boxes really evoke the feeling of fall. So sorry to hear of your husband"s health issues. Will be praying all goes well with the biopsy.

Love the boxes! Forgive me for my ignorance but what do you put in them? I will keep you and your hubby in my thoughts and prayers!
