What Have I Been Up To?

Wow! It has been so long since I have posted anything. So here is what I have been up to?

I have been working on trying to further my career and utilize my Interior Design Degree. Currently, I am working as an In-Home Custom Decorator. I assist customers in creating the perfect window treatment for their home including matching accessories. I really enjoy my job and let’s not even talk about homes I go into. Sometimes I feel a tad bit intimidated. I have only been doing this for 3 weeks and it gets better and better. I will gladly share projects that I am working on with you all and feel free to give your opinion.

I have not been painting as of lately because I simply just do not have the time anymore. My new job definitely has given me new appreciation for time management. Once I get really settled into my job, I would love to go back and continue painting to get my Etsy shop, Cre8ive Obsessions, back up and running. I have few ideas that I need to just finish. So be prepared for that and like always feel free to suggest any design that you want to see or request an item for you and/or your family and friends. I will make time for any commission request.

One last final thing, I have been working on a few DIY projects. I can not wait to finish them and share them. This time I will not make them into crazy long post. I went back looking at the Jewelry Box and wondered what I was thinking. I should have broken it up into parts.

That was  quick update as to what is going with me and things to come. So what have you been up to?

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.
