Our Journey

They say God doesn't give you more than you can handle.  As of late, I beg to differ.  Two years ago, I stopped saying "Things have to get better, RIGHT?" because quite frankly, every time that thought crossed my mind, another bad thing happened. Cathy had reached her limit last Monday.  The barium from...

Repost from December 1st - Hi Friends of Shizzle!  My name is Liz Kamyszek and I'm  writing on behalf of Shelly and Cathy! They are going through a tough time right now.  Shelly just had another surgery on her shoulder and has a 6-month recovery ahead of her.  She can't drive...

Finding my way back

For the first time in over a year, I'm thrilled to be creating again.  I lost my passion for painting this past year between the divorce, my diagnosis of cancer, major surgery, long recovery and almost losing our mom to an unexpected heart block.    After spending months in physical therapy and basic survival mode, I'm finally climbing out of the haze.  The fog is clearing and I can see hope for a better tomorrow.  Painting furniture is therapeutic, having lost that lust was like losing part of my inner soul and I'm so thankful it's starting to come back.   I tried the Frenchic for the first time when I returned to work after surgery.  Cathy had raved about it for months and it didn't take long for me to understand why.  Frenchic is absolutely dreamy and just what I needed to spark my passion for painting again.  0111

Chondrosarcoma is an extremely rare form of...

Three years ago today, my sister Cathy and I launched our painted furniture business at Holland's Art in the Park.   It was August, 2011.  I keep thinking it's been four years (the brain doesn't function quite like it used to!). We are so very thankful for where God has led us since...

Hello Gang!  It's Sunday and that means it's time for me to share some more amazing transformations performed by of the guys and gals who have attended our Paint Your Own Furniture Workshops. Rose brought this table to refinish and left with this! Rose painted her table to coordinate with her super cool chairs from Pier...

I’m running a little behind on my furniture posts lately because my sister and I have been scurrying around like a couple of squirrels renovating our new space. Introducing…. The Shizzle Design Paint Studio at 2018 Chicago Drive, Jenison, MI  49428 We’ve been searching for retail space for a long time but...
