A PaintWorks Christmas

Hop on Board the Holiday Express!

This issue features a number of choices to fulfill your holiday decorating and gift-giving needs. When it comes to gifts, there’s nothing like homemade (or hand-painted in this case.) Whether you are looking to paint accents for indoors or outdoors, we’ve got you covered!

Throughout the year we looked for unique Santa designs to feature for all you Santa collectors. If you live on the coast, you can surely appreciate Lynne Andrews’ Olde Salt Nick Santa board (page 46). This is the first time we’ve included a coastal-themed Santa, and we look forward to your response! For those who love primitive designs, be sure to check out Cynthia Erekson’s Holly Horse Cone Santa made from rolled canvas (page 72). For a touch of whimsy, we know you’ll appreciate Sandra Goodale’s “Ho! Ho! Ho!” Santa Blocks (page 84). This unique surface is truly a delight! And if your décor is country, you’ll love Karen Wisner’s “Christmas Blessings” Board (page 78). Of course, those tried-and-true traditional Santa designs are appreciated by all of us, so be sure to check out Nancy and DeLane Designs’ jolly Santa Sled (page 87) as well as Judy Westegaard’s Wooden Santa Bowl (page 40)—both are perfect choices to add to your collection! Also, we could not leave out a vintage Santa design, so turn to page 14 for Trudy Beard’s elegant, breathtaking Vintage Santa Tin Pitcher.

We’ve also included a stellar variety of holiday designs that will take you from your tabletop to your walls to your tree—a charger plate, clock, candleholder, cookie tin, nativity set, ornaments, and more.

Get out your paper and pencil—it’s time to start making your list.

Merry Christmas!
