Create a Collage While Family is in Surgery

My sister-in-law recently had a major surgery.  While the surgery was scheduled as opposed to emergency, the family was still apprehensive and emotional during the long surgery.  To help keep our minds busy, we used the time to create a collage for my sister-in-law.  

We brought with us to the hospital waiting room magazines, glue, scissors and a large frame to mount our findings.  With five people participating in the cutting, it did not take long to produce a fun collection of words and images that represented this family member to us.  

As opposed to showering my sister-in-law with flowers, cards and stuffed animals, we were able to give her one gift that was meaningful and entertaining!  To this day my sister-in-law keeps the collage in her bathroom where she can be reminded every day of the love that surrounded her that day, and continues to surround her today.
