Challenge #213 - Halloween

We here at Opus Gluei love a holiday as much as the next person so let's get into Halloween!

Deena here:  we have had the most gorgeous fall here in our neck of the woods and I hope it can keep up for all the little ghosties and goblins to take advantage of it for trick or treating...we usually have miserable weather by now requiring snow boots and big parkas and it takes the costumes to a whole new level of puffiness...fingers crossed this year will be as nice as today and maybe just light jackets will be necessary...but who knows, it is still almost 2 weeks away and things can change so fast here.  I made several of these little candles to light our path in front of our if the winds will just stay calm enough to keep them lit, they could look super cute....

LOVE those candles Deena.  Chat Noir here, from the Great Southern Land where Halloween is only slowly making its presence felt........BUT, witches and broomsticks and bats are natural companions for black cats, my very favourite animals, so here's my small contribution to our display to motivate you.  Its a tag on a chain, to hang from my real-life broomstick.

....and to finish, here's a reminder of what witches just might look like (LOL)

Show us your projects - you have 2 weeks to link up.

Challenge #212 - Thanksgiving in Canada!

Canadians celebrate Thanksgiving about six weeks ahead of their southern neighbors, the U.S. of A.  So, in honor of the people of Canada, the Opus Gluei is going to have a theme of:

Canadian Thanksgivin
and/or Red/White

If you are a Canadian, feel free to show us your ideas for the table, invites, cards, decorations, whatever you do to show your pride.   
American?  Well, get a jump start on your Thanksgiving plans. 
 Neither or not interested in creating with Thanksgiving in mind?  
Well then, be inspired by the colors RED/WHITE and show it to us!!!!!  Or how about using the MAPLE LEAF in your design?

Deena here:  we have our Thanksgiving next weekend and we will be attending and hosting a few Saturday, Sunday and on Thanksgiving Monday...crazy...but delicious...I felt these projects represent the harvest and the bounty on our tables and they will also be thank you cards for the hostesses and guests for our dinners...enjoy!


Chat Noir here, sneaking into the theme with some red and white because Australia doesn't celebrate Thanksgiving.......... but I have some lovely Canadian friends so I had no trouble using their national colours for my work this week.  I made some cards and added to my ATC collection too.


You have until October 18th to show us your creations by linking to your post in the comments below.
