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.

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?

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.
