Spooks and Jingles on STJ!!!

I can't believe this past year has passed so quickly and that we are already celebrating the first anniversary of SpookyTime Jingles. It was one year ago that I first put my work online for people to see and purchase instead of just selling locally at art and craft shows... and what a year it has been!! The friendships I have developed both with artists and collectors has touched me deeply and I'm so thankful for the experiences of the last 12 months.

To thank you for your support and encouragement we will be offering free shipping this month on STJ, except for the unusual works that may need additional postage. Plus, 10% of all of my sales will be going to the Kearney Area Humane Society in the name of the buyers. As an animal owner and lover I just think supporting such organizations in their efforts is a good thing and I hope you will agree with me. Many of the STJ artists will be making similar donations. Another thing to look for this month are the door prizes. I know there are currently over 20, so give the works a look and when you register mention which work you would like to receive as your door prize. When possible, the work and winner will be matched. Now, how is that for customer service!!!!! **giggle** (For buyers...25 extra door prize entries will be given for the purchase of a Christmas piece, and 31 extra door prize entries will be given for the purchase of a Halloween piece....that helps the odds of winning!!)

This is the Monkey-Cats Studio's ACEO door prize...remember, the ACEO works only measure 2.5" x 3.5", so I think the work is actually larger in this picture than it really is. He is a cute little guy, celebrating his love for his small pumpkin friend who is singing under the moonlight. These little cards are adorable framed and placed amongst your Halloween collectibles.

I will have three little spooks offered this month...."Bertram Goodhue", "Mr. Purrsonality" and "Squish Squash". If you want to read more about them and for additional views just look to my recent past posts.


I will also have two little jingles, "I. M. Schnoozle Snowman" and "Purrseus" the cat. Additional views of these two figures can be found on my flickr page by clicking on their image below.

I hope you discover a new original you need to add to your collection this month on SpookyTime Jingles...where sweet and spooky commingle!!

SpookyTime Jingles updates Sunday night at 12:00 a.m. Eastern time. I think it might be worth staying up for!!

Have a great weekend!
