Etsy Shop: Cre8ive Obsessions

Sooooooooooooo…… I have not listed anything in long time on Etsy. That is all about to change.

I have been working on some new ideas and have finalized a few. These past couple of months have been real hectic with redesigning the apartment due to my roommate finally moving out. So, now I have more space to actually work on projects for my shop while finding new DIY projects to work on, as well as getting booked more Interior Design Consultations for my job.

I finally found out how important TIME MANAGEMENT really is. I actually use a planner for more than my To Do List and Birthdays, now.

I plan on starting to list items sometime before mid October. I will be sharing a few sneak peaks of things as a I gradually start to finalize the date. Be on the look out.

New Items Sneak Peek!

I know I continuously slack off on getting new things out on a regular basis. It’s just hard with work and trying to find time in between all the other responsible things I have to get done or that come up. However, I do have three new items I am going to be posting on Sunday, Tuesday, and Thursday. You know you guys always get the a look before anyone else.  Don’t be afraid to specifically request an item to be put on reserve either for you either. I do not mine. However, I will only reserve it for 72 hours.

As you can see two are a coffin and one is a chest. (There I go stating the obvious. )

The chest is pirate themed, One coffin is themed from the manga/anime Blood Lad, while the second one is the Nightmare Before Christmas (huge fan right here.) They are still in the process of being finished (some more than others.)

Hope you guys enjoy them.

 

Postings:

Sunday: Blood Lad

Tuesday: Nightmare Before Christmas

Thursday: Pirate Chest

Sadly, I do not have a specific time for when they will be up (due to my work schedule being all over the place) but I can guarantee they will be listed on that exact day.

New Listing!

So I know I have been slacking a lot on posting new items. I have few lined up so hopefully I will not get behind this time. I found a better way to manage my time.

Any how this box is one that I posted before for a custom request. The client in the end kept saying they wanted it but never would make a purchase (and kept saying she would)  and after a month (which was way too long) I had to go ahead and tell them that I would have to make it public for anyone.

Therefore, it is listed for anyone who is interested.

Sometimes It Just Has To Be All About Me…

First off, I want to say that I am sorry I have not posted anything in just about a week. I have been so busy with work and trying to have a little bit of personal time. Therefore, I will share what has been going on with me this week.

Well I finished the requested Batman themed box. She said that she really liked it.  Here are pictures of it:

Also, I have my second request for a trinket box. It is Pirates of the Caribbean themed. I already have it a planned out and since tomorrow is my day off, I can actually get started on it. I will share pics of it at a later date. I will just say that it a chest shaped box, if that was not what you were already hoping for :).

One more thing about trinket boxes that I do have a Pokemon themed one in the works, as well as some other ideas. However, customers request  do come first. So I will hopefully have some new things posted in my Etsy shop sooner than later.

If you did not already know I work at JCPenney. Right now, I just work in the men’s Levi department, which I actually enjoy. I just feel that retail is not really for me, or at least selling clothes. However, next week I am getting transferred to the Windows department, which I am thrilled about. It’s an expert position where I will be helping customers pick out in-store window treatments and/or order custom window treatments. Hopefully, it will help open some doors for me so I can really get into my degree more. By the way, if I have not mentioned before I graduated with a degree in Interior Design.

I am also trying to work my way in the Custom Decorator position where I can go to people homes and assist more hands-on with the design process. Wish me luck with that!

I also finally got The Legend of Zelda: Hyrule Historia from my boyfriend. I know I am really late but I am just happy that he got it for me. So geeked right now.

Other than that just been hanging out with my friends and enjoying life.

My First Custom Request!!

So, I am excited to say that I received by first custom request for a trinket box. The customer wants it to be Batman themed and that’s all I have to work with. She just said surprise her because the person she is giving it to likes anything Batman. I am kind of nervous about how much free range there is and really hope she likes it.

Here are some sneak peaks of what the box will look like:

I will show you all the finished product in a few days with what she thinks. I hope this is the Batman she was looking for.
