It's a most wonderful time of year ...

With the holiday season rapidly approaching, one can begin to sense a burst of energy in the air. Everyone is gearing up for Christmas, and you can avoid that notorious last-minute shopping spree if you start planning your gift list now.

In this special holiday issue, we are pleased to present ideas to help you create a festive atmosphere in your home. We are also pleased to showcase a variety of painted projects that you can make as gifts to place under your tree. From banners and plaques to tabletop décor, we’ve got you covered.

As we near the end of PaintWorks’ 20th anniversary year, we’d like to share 20 surface ideas on which to adapt some of the designs featured in this issue. To view this list, go to our website: paintworksmag.com. Also, we’d love to feature photos of your adaptations. Please send photos with a brief description to All American Crafts, Inc., PaintWorks Holiday Photos, 7 Waterloo Road, Stanhope, NJ 07874, or e-mail them to editors@paintworksmag.com.

Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas!

Linda R. Heller
Editor in Chief
