The art of pumpkin stencils has really become a personal art form over the last several years. Previously, the only pumpkin stencils available have been by Pumpkin Masters. Few have dared to break away and create their own stencils for public use – Jammin Pumpkins is one of these. JP’s has exclusively created a pattern for Oct31st.org and has also offered an additional five FREE patterns for everyone to download. I had the pleasure of speaking with JP all about his website; read the entire interview continued below. The downloads-section has been updated and reorganized; I also added a brand new Witches Brew wine label, enjoy!
I need to make a correction about the Peanuts Holiday Collection. Amazon.com is listing the release date for the new Peanuts Holiday Collection for October 5th, 2010. One month earlier than previously said to be released and on my birthday too (how convenient). Bluray.com has a wonderful review and features screenshots from the new “Great Pumpkin” release.
The internet is full of wallpapers and it can be hard to find great wallpapers in the massive “black hole” that is the internet -especially for holidays like Halloween! I have searched the internet high and low for great Halloween wallpapers (other than the ones on this site of course). Here are a few links to get you and your computer – in the Halloween spirit!
AOL Halloween Radio is a great place for a mix of Halloween music & haunted ambience.
Halloween radio is set to return September 13th, 2010.
Live365 Various Halloween radio stations – just search Halloween.
Oct31st’s ebay store is once again available for Halloween 2010. This year I am featuring glass ornaments in fine black glitter and fine orange glitter. The ornaments are glittered on the inside and not the outside – like most traditional ornaments. These ornaments are hand made by me and can not be purchased in any store. They are perfect for a Halloween tree, Halloween wreath or glass bowl. They sparkle with brilliance and are just beautiful. Order your ornaments today, they will go fast.
Thanks to the incredible Pumpkin Rot blog, for posting the news that Pottery Barn has added Halloween items to their website. Many of the items would create a wonderful and spooky tablescape perfect for a Halloween party. Right away I personally would choose several items including the bone martini glasses, the cauldron bunch bowl, the bat salad plates, and the mini skull vase filler. You could create an amazing table with just a couple of items.
Improvements Catalog has also put out their Halloween preview online. I have been eyeing the Great Pumpkin yard art for some time now. It wouldn’t be in the main part of my yard, but it definitely is my favorite Halloween special of all time.
Grandin Road updated their website as well. 23 pages, yes… 23 pages of some great Halloween merchandise! Some wonderful wine labels, exclusively created Martha Stewart props (she finally got into creating props) some resin cauldrons and some cool black trees.
More website updates are coming soon. Working behind the scenes on some additional updates, be sure to check back.
