I'm already on deviantart and ebay, etsy didn't work out for me either and pinterest. The only way I think I can really do anything with it is for it to be face to face and I work 2 jobs so I'm at a loss.

Have you tried Etsy. com? That could be a good place to start. When it comes to people asking for custom work, you're not doing yourself any favors by not accepting commissions, unless you have a good reason not to accept them. A lot of freelancers make their money by doing commissions; that's what many of my fellow artists do, depending on what medium they work in.
