I am at it again, LOL!! I have too much fun with stamping and making up bags of goodies, so once again Safelight will get some fun treats, Autumn Jubilee style. I have a bunch of white lunch size bags, so easy to decorate! I got out stamps and stickers for some creative playing.
This time, I started with my roller and a jack-o-lantern wheel, putting a row on the left side in orange. Using the roller guide keeps the lines straight.
I lined them up to dry while I finished rolling the rest of the bags.
Each bag then got a cute stamp with a witch, a mummy, a Frankenstein, a ghost and a cat all riding a broom, stamped in purple. The cute greeting is stamped in green.
This “Shoot for the Moon” sentiment seemed to fit the theme, so I made some little notes to go inside the bags.
The bags were packed with hand lotion, lip gloss, the little note and a few pieces of candy.
All the bags are filled, ready for the next step.
I folded the tops over and sealed them with tape, and a sticker.
I had a bunch of different ones to use, the witches hats and jack-o-lanterns were really cute.
Today’s giveaway is a Sewing Machine Lighting Kit with Expansion set by Inspired LED!! I have a string of these over my stamping workbench and the extra light is fantastic. They are mounted under the shelf and shine light right where I need it. Could you use extra lighting in other areas of your home?

i’d love to have more lighting in my sewing room. i have a lamp on my sewing machine but it’s in the way when i do machine quilting.
Love your Halloween creativity!
My old eyes could use some LED lighting!!
Love the treat bags…
Your generosity and talent knows no bounds! Your bag recipients are so lucky. Thank you so much for your kind giveaway.
I’d like better lighting in our basement where quilt my quilts!
Cute bags, Carol! More light? Yes, please!
I do love the Halloween treat idea – even as adults, we need a little something extra & practical to get thru our days! I’m sure the folks @ Safelight will enjoy the little surprise. And I would love soe extra light in the new craft room we’re trying to organize. Always in my own light it seems! Thanks!
Wonderful idea, a Halloween treat !
Love all the ideas you have. This project is small in size but mighty in love. Thank you you for all the lovely ideas you share. Blessings. Diane
Diane: what a beautiful way to put it! And so true, too!
Thank you so much! I just have a soft spot for the residents of the shelter.
I’m with Jennifer! We all could use a few treats to help and encourage us. (That’s what your blog posts do, Carole!). It would be grand to win the lighting kit, as these old eyes seem to need more and more light these days.
Wow, you sure do put a lot into everything you do! What cute trick or treat bags!!
You sure have a creative and giving soul! Thank you for everything you do!
I could definitely use some extra lighting in my sewing room. My nature eyes would appreciate it.
My grandma eyes could use some extra light quilt piecing wise. I have heard of the LED but not experienced it yet. Thanks for the chance and quilt on!
Those LED lights look like they would be perfect in my sewing room!
OH, your playtime looks like so much fun and productive! You do so much and are so giving Carole. Thank you for sharing with us via your posts. I don’t know how you do all you do!
Love the bag stamping.
Good morning Carole…..You are one of the most selfless people it has been my pleasure to know, even though we’ve never met in person. The thoughtful things you do for the less fortunate, is commendable, and I am sure those little white decorated bags will make some people very happy to be the beneficiaries of your ‘playtime.’
Cute bags, what a lovely gift for the shelter residents. And yes, more light is always a good thing when sewing or crafting.
In my 145 year old home, there never seems to be enuf counter lighting when I work in the kitchen after day. This type of LED lighting would certainly help. I would love to try it on my singer 301 too. Thank you Carole for the inspiring things you share with readers while giving your time and talents to others. Thanks for the great ideas you share
Such great ideas. You are talented.
Extra light is good especially for upcoming sorter daylight hours. Love your creativity!
Those bags are adorable and such a thoughtful little gift. I’m sure holidays are especially hard for women in their situation.
shoot for the moon and you’ll end up in the stars, what a wonderful sentiment, and thank you for being a wonderful inspiration!
You are so generous to make Halloween bags. And they are super cute too! I hadn’t thought of using the light set in places other than on my sewing machine, but now I’m thinking of all the places they could help. The older I get, the more I need good lighting!
The older I get it seems I need more lighting to see better. My dining room needs to be brighter these days. Thanks for the chance to win.
I would love to have more lighting over my cutting table.
It is a great thing that you do so cheerfully for Safelight.
The bags are so cute! And you are so sweet to do them. I love the lights and would love to brighten up my old sewing machines throat!
Those are so cute! What fun! I am old and have failing eyesight and could definitely use that lighting on my sewing machine. Thanks so much.
I have slow growing cataracts and extra lighting is a pure blessing. Your bags are so cute and I’m sure the ladies will love getting them.
Like so many others, I need more light on my machine these days.
Thank you for thinking about the Safelight women for Halloween. You always come up with such great ideas.
So cute! I love my Ottlites, from my floor lamp to my sewing machine light w/magnifier! Thank you, Susan
I have macular vision issues so bright lights are a must always. Love the cute treat bags-Safelight is so lucky to have you as their guardian saint!
Love your bags, the colored stamping makes an impact.
I admire all the things you do for others. And, you are involved in so many creative things. Can’t imagine where you store all the themed place settings!!
Love your blog and the great project ideas. I have seen these lights and would love to win one! Thank you for the opportunity.
Such a fun treat! they will surely bring some smiles!
Such a neat idea without a lot of fuss.
I could use more lighting in my garage. One bulb in the middle of the room just does not help much after dark. Your treat bags for Safelight will make many people smile and reassure them that someone cares!
You are so thoughtful and creative! thanks for the great ideas…
I enjoy all your generous crafting and quilting inspiration. Thank you.
Very creative. Wonderful light.
Sweet treat bags for those at Safelight. I know it will bring about lots of smiles. Thank you for this great giveaway.
Thank you for your generosity and clever ideas. This would be a great idea for holiday goodies distributed by our church to those less fortunate.
I can always use more lighting in the sewing room. Though I just had cataract surgery which helped immensely, my eyes aren’t getting any younger!
I need more lighting in my craft shed! And especially around my sewing machine area.
Carla from Utah
Like others, I find I need more light as I have gotten older so would love to win.
I would love to have more lighting in my makeup/craft room.
your bags are adorable-loved the stamps-very fun
I could use light over my ironing table!
Your nags are great Carole, wonderful idea.
Thank you, Sue! and Thanks to all the commenters!
Really cute bags. I have been very interested in that kind of light for my sewing machines.
Very cool gift bags!!! Extra light is always needed and welcomed!!!!
Extra lighting at the sewing table would be great, especially on a rainy day!
What a sweet, generous heart you have, Carole! I admire you.
You are too kind, really I just need an outlet for all the stuff I enjoy making!!
I adore those bags! and the quote is perfect 🙂
No need to enter me into the giveaway. I use an old singer lol
Thanks so much, Rue! Just so you know, the giveaway entries are on the Rafflecopter widget, so you would have to do that to be entered. I need to add a set to my old Kenmore.
You really went to town with the stamping on your little gift bags. How kind of you to do all that. Thanks for sharing!
Such fun treat bags! The ruler tip is great. I can think of many places I could use extra light.
Such lovely creativity you have. Happy Halloween!
You are so kind. What an amazing gift to do.
I forgot to say yes of course I need more light in my sewing room over my machines. I just can’t seem to get it right.
Cute treat bags!
What cute little gift bags. The ladies will enjoy them. 😊
What wonderful goodness you have in these fun treat bags!
Hi Carole! These bags are just SO wonderful. Very creative and fun. I have to thank you and your sponsors for the giveaways, especially the one today. I really would love to have one of these for the extra light. ~smile~ Roseanne
Thank you so much! Good luck!!
So interesting to know that the light strips can be used almost anywhere. I’m finding the better the light the better and I like the illumination from the LED lights. Thanks for sharing your lovely stamped bags.
Carole, on behalf of the Safelight clients, thank you so much for these adorable treat bags! They are going to be so excited to have them. We appreciate your thoughtfulness, generosity, and kind gestures.
The bags look great for your special cause. Gorgeous decorations.
I know they appreciate you at Safelight so much! You have found a great cause, and they have found a wonderful friend. These are so cute and bound to cheer recipients. Thanks for always being so kind.
Always use more light somewhere. Thanks.
Carole…these are adorable. The bags would make great classroom gifts bags too. They are sure to bring a smile to the ladies who recieve them.
I’ve been looking for extra lighting on my midarm machine. This might just do the trick.
You are so creative! I’m sure they will love the gift bags.
I definitely could use more lighting in my sewing room so I could sew more in the evening time. But I have a small space so must be something easy to install and up on ceiling or upper part of the wall.
Your treat bags are so cute. If the giveaeay is still open, I’d love a chance to win.
