Thyme for some Winter Thyme Magic!


Well .....the Magic is happening here...
MAYBE 
not as quickly as I would like 
but its happening.......


The tree is decorated! It has been up for over a week!
It got decorated twice!!!!
Once by hubby and then by me!!!!!! LOL!
I'm still scrambling to finish painting all my Christmas gifts!


I can't even find a spot on my paint table to paint!


This old skate is a gift for a friend.....


I LOVE painting on old skates!


I used a design called
WINTER TIME MAGIC
from 
Viki Shermans book
Kindred Hearts
to paint this design





I love to add lots of Snow Tex and Diamond Dust





I laced the skate with some homespun and added rusty bells
I pinned on a tiny tag that says
WINTER MAGIC


 I cut a block of wood to set the skate in so it could be used as a table centerpiece






So until next THYME


my little
Elf Helper and I
will be busily working in  the studio
painting away.....
In hopes of
MAKING THE MAGIC

happen again this year!

Hugs,
Lynn
