About

Creative Endeavors began in 2003 as an outlet for my creativity.

I have always been a creative person and come from a highly creative family. My love of reading and learning has inspired me to teach myself how to do a multitude of different arts and crafts. In 2002, I decided that I wanted to do more than just doodle, so I picked up a book on pencil drawing, a sketchbook, and a set of drawing pencils and began teaching myself how to draw portraits and animals. Three weeks later, I entered my first art show where I won honorable mention on both entries. From there, I decided to try my hand at other artistic mediums such as acrylic painting and sewing. Later that year, I was diagnosed with severe food allergies. In order to make my life easier, I started cooking from scratch and started making my own soaps and lotions. Of course, like everything I do, I was very enthusiastic and went overboard with my soapmaking. I decided to start selling my soaps and found the perfect location in the town I grew up in. I called my business Creative Endeavors and registered my business with the state.

In 2003, my husband and I became foster parents to a sibling group of two. We adopted these two children in 2005 and a third child in 2008. To help the children adjust to living with us and also to help them deal with the emotional issues they were experiencing, I used art therapy. Today, my children and their artwork help inspire me and provide plenty of creativity.

I have known how to crochet for as long as I can remember. When I started my Etsy store in October 2011, I was hesitant to include my crocheted items. My daughter convinced me to list my first crochet item which was a purse made from woodland tweed yarn and it sold within 3 days. Since then, I have been selling convertible fingerless mittens and have thoroughly enjoyed making them. I have also begun to add more crochet items including wash cloths, slippers, purses, and cozies.

Creativity is my passion and art is my life. I hope you enjoy visiting my shop as much as I enjoy making the items you will find!

Privacy
This Privacy Policy describes how and when I collect, use, and share information when you purchase an item from me, contact me, or otherwise use my services through Etsy.com or its related sites and services.

This Privacy Policy does not apply to the practices of third parties that I do not own or control, including Etsy or any third party services you access through Etsy. You can reference the Etsy Privacy Policy to learn more about its privacy practices.

Information I Collect

To fulfill your order, you must provide me with certain information (which you authorize Etsy to provide to me), such as your name, email address, postal address, payment information, and the details of the product that you are ordering. You may also choose to provide me with additional personal information (for a custom order of crochet or knit items), if you contact me directly.

Why I Need Your Information and How I Use It

I rely on a number of legal bases to collect, use, and share your information, including:

as needed to provide my services, such as when I use your information to fulfill your order, to settle disputes, or to provide customer support;
when you have provided your affirmative consent, which you may revoke at any time, such as by signing up for my mailing list;
if necessary to comply with a legal obligation or court order or in connection with a legal claim, such as retaining information about your purchases if required by tax law; and
as necessary for the purpose of my legitimate interests, if those legitimate interests are not overridden by your right or interests, such as 1) providing and improving my services. I use your information to provide the services you requested and in my legitimate interest to improve my services; and 2) compliance with the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use. I use your information as necessary to comply with my obligations under the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use.

Information Sharing and Disclosure

Information about my customers is important to my business. I share your personal information for very limited reasons and in limited circumstances, as follows:

Etsy. I share your information with Etsy as necessary to provide you my services and comply with my obligations under both the Etsy Seller Policy and Etsy Terms of Use.
Service providers. I engage certain trusted third parties to perform functions and provide services to my shop, such as delivery companies. I will share your personal information with these third parties, but only to the extent necessary to perform these services.
Business transfers. If I sell or merge my business, I may disclose your information as part of that transaction, only to the extent permitted by law.
Compliance with laws. I may collect, use, retain, and share your information if I have a good faith belief that it is reasonably necessary to: (a) respond to legal process or to government requests; (b) enforce my agreements, terms and policies; (c) prevent, investigate, and address fraud and other illegal activity, security, or technical issues; or (d) protect the rights, property, and safety of my customers, or others.



Data Retention

I retain your personal information only for as long as necessary to provide you with my services and as described in my Privacy Policy. However, I may also be required to retain this information to comply with my legal and regulatory obligations, to resolve disputes, and to enforce my agreements. I generally keep your data for the following time period: 4 years.

Transfers of Personal Information Outside the EU

I may store and process your information through third-party hosting services in the US and other jurisdictions. As a result, I may transfer your personal information to a jurisdiction with different data protection and government surveillance laws than your jurisdiction. If I am deemed to transfer information about you outside of the EU, I rely on Privacy Shield as the legal basis for the transfer, as Google Cloud is Privacy Shield certified.

Your Rights

If you reside in certain territories, including the EU, you have a number of rights in relation to your personal information. While some of these rights apply generally, certain rights apply only in certain limited cases. I describe these rights below:

Access. You may have the right to access and receive a copy of the personal information I hold about you by contacting me using the contact information below.
Change, restrict, delete. You may also have the rights to change, restrict my use of, or delete your personal information. Absent exceptional circumstances (like where I am required to store data for legal reasons) I will generally delete your personal information upon request.
Object. You can object to (i) my processing of some of your information based on my legitimate interests and (ii) receiving marketing messages from me after providing your express consent to receive them. In such cases, I will delete your personal information unless I have compelling and legitimate grounds to continue using that information or if it is needed for legal reasons.
Complain If you reside in the EU and wish to raise a concern about my use of your information (and without prejudice to any other rights you may have), you have the right to do so with your local data protection authority.

How to Contact Me

You may contact me via the Etsy message system (convos), this is the best as it is a record kept by Etsy if needed for proof of any complaint or communication for any dispute.
