The STUDIO gets BUSY at this THYME of year!

It's that THYME of year again 
when things can get pretty BUSY 
in the 
STUDIO!

Because
it's 
THYME

TO MAKE THE MAGIC HAPPEN!


Step inside 
and
 I'll show you some of the pieces that I am working on


I'm working on lots of ornaments!



This is a wonderful 
SANTA 
design by Pam Grady
that I'm painting on MORE ornaments!



This is a design called
Rolling Out the Cookie Dough
by 
Prudy Vannier

It's a REAL favorite of mine!

NOW
You might be wondering where my ELF
HINKLEY
has been?


He arrived 
EARLY
this year so I was hopeful that we would not fall behind on preparations to
MAKE THE MAGIC 
happen for Christmas

HINKLEY
was made by the 
MASTER ELF MAKER
BRENDA
at

I had requested an Elf that could help me 
in the 
STUDIO
 to
sand & base coat pieces, type patterns, and some "light assembly work"
well....
he can't 
TYPE


This
 ELF 
also needed to be able to help with all the other 
usual Christmas preparations
 such as wrapping, decorating , baking etc.


Every thyme I take out the 
KITCHENAID 
he tells me to
BEAT IT
because 
it's THYME for his SPINNING workout......sigh

BEFORE
the Elves leave Brenda's workshop
they must attend 
ELF CLASSES




We all know how much I love to paint, design and create....
I've even had the PRIVLEDGE to MEET and PAINT 
with some
REAL BIG BRUSHES 
(ARTISTS/DESIGNERS)
who always inspire me 
to 
PAINT OUTSIDE THE LINES
I've shared so many painting stories with
  HINKLEY
during our thymes in the 
STUDIO


But a PAINTER he is not!
Nor does he even try to be.......when I try to teach
him....he says that I don't need any more
BIG BRUSHES
in the STUDIO.... I have enough!


Well.... it looks like I shall be heading back to my painting table 
ALONE



 I wasn't expecting him to become a
BIG BRUSH
but
a little help with base coating would be appreciated!

WELL
 I am just going to


Keep those brushes flying!
Happy Painting !

  1. Hi, Lynn! I am happy to see that you are once again busy! I am also glad you have a helper in Hinkley! My elf Edgar has also been helping me organize and get some things done here. I told him to brace himself for the busy months ahead.

    I love seeing your awesome work and seeing you back to painting. Your studio is beautiful and looks to be a wonderful place to create and reflect. Hopefully, one day Edgar and I can come and see you in person. I would truly love that! Thank you for being such a wonderful inspiration to us and to so many others as well. :) xoxox

  4. Lots of wonderful pieces, it is fun to create for Christmas.
    My new mascot tends to take up my time lately, so I doubt I will get much done this year;)
