Theme-a-licious Opulent October Check-in

Sorry posts have been slim on the ground...work is ridiculous right now. In fact, I just stopped working...but hey, I have two hours to get this post up before midnight!

Fall always takes me by surprise; I'm aware on some level that the amount of light is going to go down, but I always forget how quickly it happens and am slow to re-strategize my picture taking schedule. So Dancer here doesn't look too bad...
...though you might be hard-pressed to figure out where I added sparkly stuff (Hint: It's the snow under her feet.)

Whereas Sapphire Star looks pretty rough.
But I promise in real life, those colored sections are very sparkly and getting sparklier!

I have to tell you, when I started going through my WIPs, I was pretty shocked at the low number that included sparkly fibers or beads...so of course I had to start one. But I'll leave that as a surprise for the wrap-up post at the end of the month. =)

Are all your sparkly projects making you feel like royalty? Or is the bling blinding you? Please add your link below (to your check in post), and visit some other Themers if you can (everyone loves comments and encouragement!) Our next post will be on the 31st of October, when we'll wrap up Opulent October and talk about No-XS November (don't panic)!

I've kinda missed the theme-a-licious posts over the last three months. Being on the road a lot in another country has meant that I didn't have much chance in reading any posts and no chance at all of joining in. It's a good job I don't have anything in this category or I might think I'm missing out. Good job on your WIPs.

Sapphire star is certainly going to be opulent!

Sapphire Star is gorgeous! My post is another "this is where it would be if there was any..."

Oh well, there are another 16 days to go.

I love Sapphire Star.

Karoline said...

They are both looking gorgeous. I *had* to go down the new project route for this theme as well

Melanie said...

I can't resist the sparkly stuff. More sparkle with everything!
Hope work calms down soon for you.
