My name is Talina. I am a visual designer/ choreographer working with a local high school in Flagstaff, AZ. I teach dance & colorguard because I love it, I also work as a front desk agent at a resort to help me pay the bills. To me the most important thing in my life is personal growth and spending time with family. I don't want to spend my life working jobs that trap me. I plan to have a family and would prefer to have the job/ financial flexibility to stay at home and raise my children. I am a future work at home mom!
I believe the one thing that makes many small businesses special is that they are run by real people who strive to provide real interactions and "above and beyond" customer service.
My customers give me a chance to make a difference, to brighten their day and to "pay it forward". We are all blessed with certain gifts, talents and knowledge but it goes to waste if we don't put it to good use. I make my crafts because I truly believe that gifts from the heart (handmade treasures that artists put their heart and soul into) really can send the most unique and heartwarming message.
One holiday season I decided to avoid thesewing a purse.jpg (19736 bytes) crowds by doing all my holiday shopping online. My biggest complaint was that things just were not customizable and often did not perfectly fit the person I was shopping for. I had an idea of the perfect gift and just could not find it anywhere. If I had the resources I now have would have made the gift myself. My internet shopping experiences lead me to want to develop a better way for people to send the perfect meaningful gifts. Imagine explaining exactly what you desire and having someone else make it for you!! That is how I arrived at my business idea Custom Gifts by Talina.
My goal is to provide you with customizable gift giving options that you can have shipped to your loved ones any time of the year. You dream it up and I will make it for you!! If you have questions, concerns or any special requests please contact me, I would be happy serve you!!
