Blog Swap with Never Enough Thyme Creations

I'm so excited to introduce you to Karen today! She has amazing painting skills and is wonderful for sharing her knowledge with us! Even better, she's SELLING some of her beautiful creations, too! Enjoy!

Hello Everyone!

I am so excited to be visiting Megan in her blog world today!  I stumbled across her blog through her awesome linky party "Everything but the Kitchen Sink!"  She always has some of the most creative ideas to share as well!

So, let me introduce myself!  My name is Karen and my blog is Never Enough Thyme Creations.  The name came about when my baby was.. still a baby!! I was a stay at home Mom and thought it would be fun to grow and sell culinary and flowering herbs.  Well, shortly after she was born, I took a few faux finishing and stenciling classes and the garden started growing weeds!



I have been a decorative artist for the last 16 years.  I started doing craft shows and later my hobby grew into doing walls in people's home, then entire homes, their furniture......  nearly everything but the dog!  I have been very blessed to be able to do what I love for a living! There are very few surfaces I have not painted!

2 story living room with curved staircase.  All walls are hand glazed. 

Glazed walls with metallic ceiling and embossed stenciled border .

About a year ago, I started reading blogs and was immediately addicted.  Yep, you guessed it.  The blog bug bit me, so here I am today!

There were so many things I wanted to share, but I decided first to define some goals and guidelines for my blog.  First, my love of decorative painting!  I want to share with my readers some of the knowledge I have gained over the years.  Things like how to properly prep and paint a wall or piece of furniture.  Prep is 75% of doing the job right!! 

Now what do I do with this table?

Next, I want to share some of the fun transformations I do.  These can be anything from a beat up piece of furniture, to a room make over! 

From Brown Man Cave.... 

... to a Colorful retreat for a beautiful baby girl!

I also want to share with you some of my art.  I have pieces that are for sale both on my website or through Etsy.

Lastly, I hope that I can inspire your creativity and imagination to turn your own surroundings into a place that you love!  
I hope you will join me!!  Thanks again to Megan for having me today!  
Until next thyme...

Happy Painting!
Karen
