We've come to the end of another month and the year brings us cooler weather (and if you're in Indiana with me, lots of rain!). We're gearing up for Halloween here, so this month's beads were all spooky Halloween themed beads. Instead of variations on a single design theme, the designers were offered a wide variety of shapes and colors! :) Here is the group our designers had to choose from this month:

And out of these beads came a huge success of designs! Some new participants joined us and I hope to see a big vote turnout :) Though we had a full plate of designers, only a handful had time to complete their entries for this month. It's a busy season!

The entrants are competing for a $50 credit to my Etsy shop. Make sure to pass along the blog link to friends and family- they may find a design they can't pass up, or find a new favorite shop :) The voting poll is on the sidebar to the right. Please vote for your favorite there (not in the comments, thanks!).

On to the entries!

1 - Carrie Stalcup of Upzndowns

2 - Christina Anderson

3 - Dawn Horner of Northern Adornaments

4 - Erin Laney of EverythingELB

5 - Lynn LaBenz of Treasures By Lynn

6 - Rose Pulido Puskas

7 - Shelley Cole Kuduk of The Rodeo Rose

Thank you to all our entries! Next month, we'll be doing Christmas/Yule themed beads. Keep an eye out!
