Safelight Spa Bags

Last week I found out that Safelight had run out of the bags we made them last summer.  We did Summer Fun bags with lots of goodies and cards inside that were uplifting and encouraging.  I delivered 52 bags to the shelter then, and had enough cards, cases, lipsticks and balms, sunscreen, and money left …

Stamping Fun for the Humane Society

I still have a huge stash of stamping supplies, and was looking for another way to use some of it.  When I received the gift of two boxes of papers, I found a number of dog and cat related papers, plus little chipboard and cardboard cutouts, and some other charms and such with animal themes.  …
