Just as we started CardboardChristmas.com to try to pull the putz house information that was scattered over a half-dozen sites into a single page, we're doing the same thing with other topics, like Halloween Villages and Trains. This should hopefully make it easier for putz house builders to find Howard's great Halloween putz projects, as well as other Halloween-specific information.

To celebrate the new site, we're also publishing a free family-friendly Halloween novel, one chapter at a time, a week apart, between now and Halloween week.

To me Halloween has always seemed to "kick off" the holiday season, so is it too early to wish everyone the best Holiday Season ever?

I just love Halloween so it is never too early to be planning a craft of some sort. I love making Halloween putz houses as much as the Christmas ones!! I have a Halloween village in the works, not as big as my Christmas but I am getting there. I am really looking forward to reading the book. Only 77 days to Halloween!!

Make some of the crafts, too - Howard's Halloween houses are delightful. The station's been popular, for example.
