Soiree, It's GO time!

Updated information on the STJ Artist Meet n Greet and Soiree

The Artist Meet n Greet (Fri. 7-9) and the Holiday Soiree (Sat. 10 am – 3 pm) are scheduled as planned! River Rescue at the New Hope Eagle Fire Company has advised that the Delaware River will be cresting later this evening or early tomorrow morning.
Several back roads in the area were closed earlier today, including the New Hope-Lambertville Bridge, due to high water volume. Local businesses and residents residing directly along the Delaware River in New Hope, PA and Lambertville, NJ have been advised to evacuate as a safety precaution.
However, the New Hope Eagle Fire Company, the venue for our events, will be open and is not located in the downtown area along the Delaware River. Though parts of Rt. 29 were closed earlier today, many roads are still open and Route 202 is easily accessible to the Fire Company.
Alternative driving routes may be advisable if traveling tomorrow or Saturday. However, most major roads should be back to normal by later tomorrow afternoon. It appears as though it may be a slow news day, as many reports of flooding seem to equate to a world disaster! Such is not the case and we look forward to seeing you soon!!

Get Ready to Party

How is it September already? Only 58 days to Halloween! It is busy season for Halloween collectors and artists. Best of all, we are finally into Halloween art show season which means happy collectors will be bagging new treats. I envy those of you who will be heading over to the SpookyTime Jingles Holiday Soiree next weekend.

This is the perfect time to plan your Halloween party (or parties for that matter!). I hold an annual pumpkin carving party. Not only is it a fun time, but once you have a collection of carving tools it is easy to repeat every year.

I’m swooning over a blog/web site called Hostess With the Mostess (HWTM). Their latest blog post is a Vintage-Style Halloween party. After you are done checking out the blog for ideas, head over to their web site and search on “Halloween” for even more inspiration.

Between HWTM and the catalogs/magazines I’ve gotten my hands on this season, it is obvious that the sophisticated party look is still very much in. HWTM features pictures of parties with hot pink incorporated into black, white, and orange color schemes. It’s a great way to be modern and add a dash of POP.

Halloween-themed wine like the Vampire brand available at Cost Plus World Market is a perfect complement to your party. This year, I’m planning to check out Elk Creek Vineyard’s Ghostly White Chardonnay and Bone Dry Red Cabernet. After enjoying the wine, it’s always fun to add the bottle to my collection!

A Special Message to our Artists, Fans and Customers

A Special Message to our Artists, Fans and Customers:

Wendy and I want to sincerely apologize for the delay that occurred with the site update last night. We recently employed software on the site that has been automatically updating all the pages at midnight every month. This method has worked well for us until the update last night, and we are still researching what went wrong. It took us a while to manually update the site, and for that we are truly sorry. We know a lot of our customers stay up late to "pounce" on artists' new work, and realize this was a major inconvenience for you last night.

We want you all to know we are committed to making STJ a better online marketplace and we promise to do everything within our power to prevent an update delay like this to occur again.

We know many on the east coast have to stay up late or set an alarm to be ready when we debut our new update. This commitment and sacrifice has not gone unnoticed. One idea we are considering is moving the update to 12:00 NOON on the 13th of every month or possibly 10 pm. We will conduct an online poll for you to vote regarding this possible upcoming change.

Finally, we are hard at work on a completely revamped SpookyTimeJingles.com. The new site design will make the shopping and selling experience much easier for artists and their customers. We are really excited about this redesign and can't wait to roll it out in 2012!

Thank you for your patronage of SpookyTime Jingles and for supporting us as we grow!

Hungry Ghosts

If you are a Halloween Jetsetter, you’ll wish you were in South China this week. Have you heard of the Hungry Ghost Festival? It’s something I would love to see in person someday.

This festival (also celebrated in Taiwan, Singapore, and Malaysia) is celebrated in the 7th month of the Chinese calendar. This year the festival is August 14. Hungry Ghost Festival is similar to the original Halloween in Europe. Both are holidays when the veil between earth and the afterlife are thin and the dead return. Chinese pay respect to their dead ancestors and give gifts to unknown ghosts who could bring them bad luck. Prayers and food are offered. Incense sticks (joss sticks) and paper money (called hell money) is burned for the dead. Paper representations of offerings like cars and tvs can also burned in offering.

At the end of the festival, some people float lotus lantern boats on rivers to help show the souls back to hell. That must be beautiful.

If you’d like to learn more, check out this link.

You can spend the day after STJ is updated eating Chinese food while doing a decoupage hell money craft project! Lucky people near Northampton, MA can visit Hungry Ghost Bread. I totally need a bag from that bakery!

Who Is The Halloween Hobbyist?

Greetings fans and artists of STJ! My name is Kristen and I am proud to be a new reporter for the STJ blog. I am a Halloween art collector, a Halloween decorator, and I love to get crafty for the holidays. I will be sharing with you tips and news around topics of interest to STJ fans.

I have always liked Halloween. As a kid my favorite memories are of trick-or-treating in my Aunt Karen’s neighborhood in Bay City, MI with my sisters, cousins, and best friend Erin. No plastic bags or pumpkins for us – we used a cotton pillow case for maximum hauling capacity. I still remember one of her neighbors who dressed up as Frankenstein and laid in a coffin with a bowl of candy. I was so scared to get to that bowl, but I did it.

My interest in Halloween collecting started back around 2001. I fell in love with the Department 56 display at Hallmark. Not long after that I was doing searches on eBay and somehow I stumbled upon some original Halloween art. I was hooked. A decade later we have so many wonderful resources for art collecting – STJ, blogs, Facebook, etc.

I was lucky enough to meet the ladies of STJ at the National Halloween Convention in May. It was at that show that a seed was planted in my head to get more involved. In my next post, I will explore the Hungry Ghost Festival in China.

SpookyTime Jingles Grows up!

Yes, STJ is growing in so many ways. In just a few days STJ will attend its 3rd National Halloween Convention in King of Prussia/Philadelphia. Each year we are one of the most highly anticipated vendors at this show. It is so heart warming to receive such a warm and exciting response from attendees, fans and collectors alike.

So,this year we decided to completely revamp our booth displays to keep it fresh and to keep you all on your toes! You will NOT be disappointed, I promise!
Think Neo-Victorian haunted house meets SpookyTime Jingles!

Also look for our LIVE feed to be shared on our Facebook Fan Page!

If you see a piece you like when we post pictures and videos leave a comment on our Facebook page and we will contact you. Last year we sold Dozens of pieces from pictures posted on our page!

This year we are doubly honored to be considered by 2 television networks for interviews and filming for upcoming features about Halloween!
Fingers, toes and eyes crossed ;)

SHOWROOM FLOOR SALES DAYS ARE ONLY Friday, May 6th-Sunday the 8th!
The other days are for vendors only

*if you would like to attend the NHC and need any assistance, please let us know we would love to help!
contact us at: spookytimejingles@yahoo.com

We are nearing our 3 year anniversary-July 13th, since we opened our internet doors and beyond!
No small feat in the tough climate we have all weathered these last few years.

Our growth and success has shown that so many of you love our concept and our goals and believe in what we do. Thanks, seems too little of a word for the tremendous gratitude Wendy and Myself have for all of you. And an especially big hug of thanks to the artists who work so hard to bring you the best they can do every month and at every show.

Finally, last year we held our 1st annual STJ Holiday Soiree and it was a remarkable success for a 1st year show. The Soiree excitement continues for us this year as Wendy Leaumont (STJ new Co-owner) is aboard full time! The talent Wendy brings to STJ is nothing short of magical.

Together we have planned an ambitious event for the 2nd annual STJ Soiree and intend to make it even better for artist and collector alike!

To start we have a new Webpage for the Soiree
that will allow us to not only give you the important details but also display it all attractively.

We have a new venue this year that is warm and inviting in gorgeous historic New Hope, Pa. (I always dreamed of having an art show in New Hope-yippee!!)
Plus, it is only 10 minutes away from last years venue.

This venue should hold us for many many years to come and we hope will prove to be the yearly home of the STJ Holiday Soiree!

Imagine Warm woods, glistening chandeliers, cozy carpeting underfoot and Victorian furnishings among some of the finest holiday collectibles to be had!

It is hard to believe all we have accomplished as a group of dedicated artists in such a short amount of time.

I am honored and humbled and happy.

artfully yours,
