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 …
