An Early Boo

I haven't really started making my "Halloween" bags yet, but I guess I better get started.  Every year, I make little treat bags and fill them with Christian tracts (Halloween tracts that tell children how they can know they're saved and on their way to Heaven), candy and treats.  I always figure that we need to take advantage of the one and only day each year that approximately 100 kids come to our door, and I have the opportunity to share Jesus with them.  I can give out candy and Halloween treats while sharing the Gospel.  It's the perfect opportunity to witness.
 
I saw that City Crafter Challenge Blog was having "An Early Boo" challenge, so I decided to use the opportunity to get myself started on the Halloween bags since I need to make 100.  I took one photo of just the bag, and then a photo of the bag filled with some candy sticks.  You can't make the bag stand up once it's filled.
 


It's a start.  I needed that "push" of "An Early Boo" to get me on my way.  Here are the challenges I'm linking up to with this little treat bag.

Thanks for stopping by to take a peek, and whatever you're working on this week, I hope that you not only "get a start" on it, but actually get it done.  I feel SO behind that I will never get it all finished.  I keep trying. . . .that's all I can do, right?  Housework, homeschooling, and LIFE in general have to come first.  Have a blessed week.

  2. I use tracts with a sweet too - but I don't have very many calling now. I always pray for them too, as they are on my property - most don't mind!
    Love your bags - the kids here come carrying their own bags.
    Blessings
