Shazzy's Creations started in August 2017 when I began making gifts for my loved ones. I was starting a new job at the time so I spent two weeks away from home doing training so evenings were spent at the hotel 'jazzing' up glasses adding gems. Before long I ventured into glittering glasses and applying vinyls that I had ordered online. Things were slow initially, only really selling things to family and friends on occasion.
In around August 2019 I contemplated selling all of my craft stuff before deciding to have one last push. So I began listing on eBay and Etsy. With the Christmas rush things soon picked up and kept me busy! It was around this time that I contemplated buying a vinyl cutter in the New Year to cut out the middle man and waiting times. Then for Christmas the lovely Mr Shazzy's Creations surprised me with a vinyl cutter of my own.
In January 2020 the spare room became my office and served me well completing the occasional orders that came in. Lockdown hit in March and although my workplace temporarily closed meaning I had the time to complete orders I didn't feel confident enough to go to the Post Office. After spending months trying to 'complete' TV the news that I would not be returning to work anytime soon made me decide I needed to get my arse into gear. I decided on the 1st of June 2020 to reopen my order book and I haven't looked back since. I've finally got my office just as I like it!
Although Etsy and eBay were getting some orders in the fees were driving me mad! So after two instances with Etsy that I didn't appreciate I decided I'd create my own website and do everything on my own terms. So that brings us to today!
