About la Jefa
Welcome to Cositas Contreras! Where everything is handmade and poured by me, Sandra!
I started my small business in back in January of 2021 as "Creations By Sandra". I would like to say it was a late quarter life crisis where I felt that I had no actual "creative" skills & spent my days doing the average. As a mom of two, I felt like I needed some sort of outlet and "talent" but couldn't figure out what it would be for myself.
I spent weeks watching different crafts on youtube to see which I felt I was capable of doing & which I would enjoy. After a few more weeks of watching "how-to" resin videos, I finally decided it was time to try it out.
With that came so many learning curves, trial and errors and marked floors and clothing. Even after recently hitting my 8 month mark of doing this, I still make mistakes, all the time.
Over the past 8 months, I’ve been asked to create wedding gifts, personalized dominos with remembrance of passed away family members, class gifts for teachers with individual pictures on each domino, special Mother’s Day gifts, unique Father’s Day gifts. The list can go on and on.
My life is always go go go, with my kids, work and all other responsibilities but when it’s time to go to the shop and pour... it’s my quiet space, it’s my “me time” and my “work” time. I put my headphones on, get my true crime playlist going & get to work.
I’m so excited to finally have this website put together to have all available items listed on here. It’s been amazing to meet people in person and sell at markets every weekend. But with a market break coming up and hearing from lots of non locals looking to purchase, this was my answer. To have everything available for anyone who was interested.
Custom orders will remain through DM until I get something else figured out.
Thank you for being here & thank you for supporting my creative outlet 💗
Please Note: I am one solo person 🙌🏽 I do all the pouring, sanding, packaging, photos, social media, events, etc MYSELF. I also have a job & two littles. Please be patient with me with customs.
