The monthly challenge for October was Prelude to the Holidays by LeAnn of pasqueflower. This is what she had to say about the theme: "October! It is time to start thinking ahead to the holidays -- Halloween, Thanksgiving, Hanukkah, Christmas and New Year. They will be here before we know it!
This month, I challenge you to create a holiday-themed item. It could be
a new listing for your Etsy shop, a holiday decoration for your home, a
costume or special accessory for a holiday gathering, or a gift you
intend to give to a friend or loved one.
Since "prelude" is a musical term, you could also make something music-themed if you wish."
