December 2009 December 2009
The December issue offers a wide variety of holiday-themed projects for young and old alike! Santa, a popular subject for collectors, is presented in various styles—folk art, traditional, and whimsical. Luminous pears, brilliant poinsettias, and charming doves are represented on selected surfaces: a wooden sleigh, a canvas, a plate, and an antique reproduction scale pan. Create special keepsakes for children—a shepherd drum bank, baby hangers (a perfect first Christmas gift), and a miniature wooden cradle. And for those holiday parties, we’ve included some hostess gift ideas—paint a holiday apron or wineglass holder/etched wine bottle ensemble, surely to be appreciated for years to come. We’re headed into those stressful preholiday months, so be sure to take a break, sit back, and read our inspiring profile on designer Lynne Andrews, as well as our feature article “Are Your Creatively Healthy?” which addresses the benefits of making time in your daily schedule for creative exercises. see what's in this issue

Many of the designs (or parts of the designs) we present can be adapted to surfaces you already own, including chairs, stools, dressers, trunks, nightstands, headboards, desks, file cabinets—the list is endless! With the long winter months just ahead of us and a new year on the horizon, it’s the perfect time to spruce up your home.
