Yay! I finished! That took a lot longer then I thought it would! In case you have no idea what I'm talking about, I'll recap. I effectively live on a dead-end street, in kind of the middle of nowhere. So while there are quite a few kids on the street, we don't get many trick-or-treaters except for the neighborhood kids. We have actually found that buying a box of full sized candy bars from BJ's or Walmart is waaaay cheaper then buying a bunch of bags of candy, and then there is less leftover for us to munch on afterwards.
Since I opened my Etsy store, I've been trying to think of ways to promote myself. One of the ways I came up with was to make up gift bags with tags that referenced my Etsy store! Here's a better pic of the tags that matdi123 made me:
So last night I decorated and stuffed all the bags and put the tags on. I did it early so that I wouldn't have to rush, and there would be less temptation to eat the candy! :) I used clear cello bags and decorated them with foam Halloween stickers. Inside, I included 1 full sized bar, some chocolate eyeballs, 2 boxes of "monster candy stix" (candy cigarettes if you've never had them), 2 Halloween toys, a spider ring, and three pixie stix! :) I'm sure the neighbor kids will love them! Here's a pic of the finished project!
Okay on to posting the pic of the day, then finishing up special orders, and start on some more Halloween pieces and some Thanksgiving pieces!
