3:17 am - It's been awhile...
While I do update the site, I haven't done much in the way of new content. 

Le SPOOKY Art, our top site list, is fixed.  I'm working on updating the links and film/literature page as well.  It's not a top priority though, as the sections are stable for the time being as-is.

For updates, sign up for my announcements list at http://www.strangegirl.com/ .  Whenever I do major updates to any of my sites, I'll send out a message.  :)  My webpage-related email address is strangeperky@gmail.comNOSPAMPLEASE. 

Thanks!  Have a great Hallowe'en season!

Week of August 31

Hallowe'en is hitting the stores in earnest! Do you have your Hallowe'en party plans in order? If not, this is the time to figure out what you'll need to buy, borrow, or (just kidding!) steal to make the shindig a success! If you don't have a lot of money but still want your house to be great for your get-togethers and trick-or-treaters, here are a few tips:

Use music and sound effects to your advantage - Sound packs a lot of punch in atmosphere creation, making it a good "decoration" value. Use your computer speakers and mp3 collection or favorite online Hallowe'en radio stream to create instant mood. Or, pull out your favorite scary soundtracks or haunt compilations and pop them in the cd player, Or, why not use sound AND video to your advantage? I like to play spooky movies and cartoons for Hallowe'en parties, as it creates an instant party activity for those who want to watch, and provides a great party soundtrack for those who don't.

Don't forget the value of lighting! - Dim the lights, whip out your candles, and stock up on novelty Hallowe'en lights! Be creative, be careful, and don't forget how effective indirect lighting can be! torchieres, uplighting, and odd-colored bulbs are all easy ways to make your pad feel spooky!

Make use of ubiquitous traditions - Jack o' Lanterns are traditional for a reason: they're relatively cheap, they're fun to make, and they look great! Why not turn your party into a pumpkin carving extravaganza? Ask guests to bring their own, while you supply the newspaper and carving supplies.

Food! - Great refreshments are a necessity, but they don't need to be expensive! Make your party pot luck, while you provide drinks and candy.

And, if you haven't already, join Neopets and explore the Haunted Woods! It's a great Hallowe'en themed land. You can find Batweena's Guide to Haunted Neopia at halloween-tree.com!

1:31 am - A few summer reminders!
Hi all...it's almost that time of year again! Some reminders and notices about halloween-tree.com and the like...

1) This year, I'll be posting weekly countdown tips both HERE and on the countdown page on the site. We'll see how it goes. Future countdown tip updates may end up being only here, only on the site, or over on our halloweenies lj community. :D

2) Speaking of halloweenies, feel free to join up and discuss! Just about everything tasteful to do with Hallowe'en is welcome.

3) Submissions for the 2003 online costume contest will be accepted starting September 1. See the site for a more complete set of rules.

4) Anyone want tickets to Mickey's Not So Scary Hallowe'en Part at Walt Disney World, October 31? We have two tickets, available at cost (a little over $30). If you want them, email me at thegoodghouls@halloween-tree.com ...

Okay, thanks all!

11:16 pm - Happy Hallowe'en ~ EARLY!
Greetings, all! I've been trying to figure out a way to incorporate this journal into the daily workings of halloween-tree.com. I've decided to use it as a companion to the strangegirl*org updates list, to update you on minor updates, award winners, and the like at halloween-tree.com. Additionally, I'll use it to bring you Hallowe'en ideas, news, and other cool stuff. Feel free to respond with your own ideas, as well!

Take care, and be watching for our new site awards program, coming very soon!

~ Kali
