H is for Halloween
Quote by~Henry kissinger
There cannot be a crisis next week.
My schedule is already full.

Hi Ginger... if you click on the photo on my blog you can see the bags up close... I don't have time to make any more before Christmas... I have a couple of craft fairs I am trying to make glass charms for so am REALLY BUSY! But if you see any of the bags that you like just let me know which ones and I'll be glad to ship them off to you. I thought a fair price would be $15.00 a bag... and then postage will probably be around $6 as they are very light. Just let me know if you still want a few of them! And Money Orders or a check is just fine!
