Christmas is in the Air

Wow here it is December 1st already... Christmas is in the air, the hustle and bustle has officially begun...Does any of you ever get tired of all the hype that is now associated with Christmas ?

I know I do, the believe that retail has taken over Christmas, there is so much pressure on what to buy, from holiday decorations, food, gifts, party's, etc that the true meaning of Christmas is completely lost...



Wouldn't it be nice if the world could get back to focusing on that true meaning and stop allowing all of the commercialism to control the holiday...

When our children were small we still did the Christmas thing with Santa and all of the hype, but we didn't go over board, for two reasons we didn't have the money and it isn't about how much you get it's about Jesus.

We made our children's birthdays more special than Christmas focusing on one child at a time.

Christmas should come from the heart not the stores...Everyone should be teaching the spirit of giving...It is a very special thing to teach to give something handmade from the heart....

Our world is to focused on all of the material things out there. Did you ever stop any think about how many homeless and depressed people there are in this world, and the numbers always increase around the holidays...



I would like to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas !

Hand Painted Original Designs




I am a self taught tole/decorative painter. I receive great pleasure painting on all types of mediums. I love to paint on anything.

In some of my designs I love to stain the wood piece first and then when it's dry paint on top of the stain, if is very easy and fun to do.

All of my designs are original designs drawn by my husband. They can all be purchased already finished as a gift, or you can purchase the pattern packets and create your own.

They can be painted on wood, paper mache, wood cutouts, fabric, tin ware, metal, boxes, plates ect. I also do some primitive painting.

Tole/decorative painting is a very rewarding and relaxing way for me to spend my time.

I encourage you to try using my patterns, all packets come with a list of colors and supplies used, 2 color photos, pattern and painting instructions.

Also if you ever had a question I might be able to answer I include my email address for you to contact me.

I hope everyone has a beautiful and relaxing weekend...

This picture I am posting is hand painted on an old shovel and decorated with a fabric bow on the handle. You can purchase this for your holiday decoration by visiting my website @ http://www.jusbcuzdezins.com/
These are a few of my designs. 1st A wood santa on a grapevine star..2nd is a wood santa on a grapevine star...3rd woodsy bear tavernsign and 4th is an adult size canvas apron..


A Little About Me


I thought I might share a little about myself with you.

I am a Mom of 5 wonderful grown children, I am a wife, a grandmother of 21 and almost 22 grandchildren.

I have been married to my hubby for 34 years.


I Love to collect coca-cola memorablia. I have a long awaited coca cola family room in my house. I stored coca cola stuff for almost 20yrs.

I am also a self taught tole/decorative painter.

My hubby draws all of my designs that I paint. I Love to create and design new projects. I have a website where I sell my designs.


I also have pattern packets for almost every item I create, I love for others to take my designs and have fun and be creative with them. I also had a store where I live, that I and my 2 daughters helped me with. People would come from all over to see our designs.

When I paint I add lots of detail to my work, I enjoy bringing things to life. The detail makes that possible. I really don't do primitive work, because I do enjoy the detail part of painting.


If you have a chance visit my website take a look, ask me questions, but whatever you do sit back relax and enjoy. I add new items monthly.
This picture is a frog flower pot that I painted for a garden. I attached small wood lady bug buttons. It is also textured with texture builder so the frog is a little textured. Very Cute.
Happy Blogging to all of you, Enjoy and stop back often.

Tole Painting Tips

After base coating, if you use a piece of brown paper bag and sand lightly, this will create a very smooth surface for adding the detail work to your project.
Also if you use Color Float and/or Gel Blending Medium by Delta Ceramcoat it will also make your painting much easier. Follow the directions on the bottles.


I Love Delta Ceramcoat products.....

Happy Painting and Crafting
