Glue Arts Would Like to Boo YOU!!!!

Have you ever been BOOed?


Would you like to be BOOed?


If you're not familiar with this...it a fun Halloween tradition. It involves...a Ghost, like you see here, that is given, along with a note or poem...and the best part a treat. Then you take those...place them at a neighbor's or friends door, ring the bell and run.{or skip or walk...lol} The recipient then posts the Ghost on their window so others know they've been BOOed and now it's their turn to do the same for someone else. It's simple and fun. And also great to do something special for others. 

So...how can you get BOOed you ask? Well as much as we'd like to leave candy and Glue Arts treats at your door, chances are many of us are a bit far apart. So we'll BOO you through your personal blogs and Facebook pages.

Here's how to join us:

We'd like to ask for those that have a blog, to add the Glue Arts Ghost above to your blog.  Then pop back here and post a comment leaving a link to your blog. You have until Saturday, October 30th at Midnight PST.

Then on Halloween, we'll visit those links to your blog...and several lucky people will receive a BOO from the Glue Girl! And what will the treat be you ask? We'll it's sweet but guaranteed not to hurt your teeth or your waistline!Lol We're going to award to several lucky bloggers their own Glue Glider Pro, a refill of their choice and some of our Extreme Adhesive Squares!  Now isn't that a super sugar-free way to celebrate Halloween. 

We realize some of our loyal fans and readers do not have a blog to participate here's two other ways you can join in. Post the Ghost above on your Facebook page and then link to us to your page on Facebook or leave us a comment with a favorite Halloween tradition or even your favorite candy..or a simple BOO will do!!
