You better watch out, you better not cry, because Mr. Jingle, man-about-Baristaville, will be keeping an eye on boys and girls big and small this December.

Mr. Jingle loves hot cocoa, coffee, cake, Beef Bourguignon, Bobby Darin and Frank Sinatra. But most of all, he loves boys and girls who appreciate everything they have big and small. He’s very good friends with Holly, you could say they have a special connection, and can be found at her home enjoying cocktails on cold nights.

Look for Mr. Jingle daily on Barista Kids from December 1 -24. He’ll be traveling all throughout Baristaville. Stay tuned!

    Gross no. He is crossing both off of his list. Too bad he has fabulous taste.

    Very nice, Hols, but why is Mr. Jingle standing in front of an “E”? Is he going to be standing in front of a different letter every day? Is this going to be an anagram?

    I think he should get together with his cousins, Mr. Tingle and Mr. Dingle, for a sing-a-long. They could do a little tap dancing and cane swinging.

    Holly – what is his mouth made of? Is it yarn or marker or licorice?

    Mr. Jingle is a story book character I have been working on for a awhile. My first true love is illustration. Mr. J was inspired from post cards from about 1910. He is a classy guy with a big heart, impeccable manners, always diplomatic and children seem to be facinated by him.

    His 3-d self is a bit more kitschy and takes me bake to the day when my granmother would make little creatures from pipe cleaners and wooden beads.

    His head is a Jingle bell with a felt hat, he has googly eyes and his mouth is drawn on. He has shoes, ice skates. mittens and snow shoes and everything one might need to have fun and keep warm in winter.

    Roo the other letters are “O-L-N” but I won’t spoil the fun and tell you the word.

    Character development is an emotional process. I thank you all for liking him and hope you grow to love him as my children and I do 🙂

I'm struck by how much attention is being paid to the details of a parking lot, as opposed to the attention paid to the future impact of the monstrous projects being planned.
