Treat Bags for Safelight

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.

    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.

    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!

    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

  4. 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.

  5. Carmen Montmarquet

    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!

    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!

  7. Beth @ Cooking Up Quilts

    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!

    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.’

  9. Joy Breedlove

    Cute bags, what a lovely gift for the shelter residents. And yes, more light is always a good thing when sewing or crafting.

  10. Dian

    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

    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!

  13. ANN D

    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.

  14. Diane Pickthall

    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!

  15. Brenda

    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.

  16. Gwynette in NW Arkansas

    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.

  17. Patricia Evans

    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.

  18. Debra Miller

    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!

  19. Camille

    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!

  20. EllenB

    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.

  21. EllenB

    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!

  22. 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

  23. Laura M

    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.

  24. 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.

  25. dezertsuz

    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.

  26. Christine Y

    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.
