One crafter’s trash is another treasure!

One of my Etsy teams: Paradise team is having a de-stash challenge. The leaders challenged us to clear out craft items we will not be using to sell to other folks on Etsy.

Here are a few of the wonderful items for sale…

Please stop by and see ALL of the destash at

We would love to see you and have you join our team!


p.s. the  seam tape or the rubber stamps look like my kind of shopping, bargain and crafty! lol

I will be posting beads later today!








Made in Oklahoma artist: Willow Creek Jewelry

Today our Made in Oklahoma Artist is Willow Creek Jewelry!

WillowCreek Jewelry Studio
Choctaw, Oklahoma

My name is Wendy and I’m a jewelry designer in Choctaw, Oklahoma. I’m a critical care nurse by trade and even though I’ve never had any formal art training that’s never stopped me from creating. I have always enjoyed crafting with various mediums such as painting, doll making, quilting, soap/candle making, pottery and cake decorating.
About five years ago I wandered into a local bead store and it was love at first sight. I began making jewelry for family and friends; progressed to selling my designs in a very hip salon and spa in Missouri and then opened my Etsy shop, WillowCreek Jewelry Studio, in August of 2009. I especially enjoy working with natural semi-precious gemstones, unique glass and oxidized metals. I like to create one-of-a-kind pieces however; I will recreate similar pieces as special orders. To keep my designs fresh, I continue to take classes in different jewelry techniques as time permits. I currently offer free shipping within the USA and all of my designs arrive in a ribbon tied gift box with a free polishing cloth. Watch for special offers during the upcoming Christmas season and a special discount for my Facebook fans;
In January of 2010 I was published in Bead Trends Magazine and continue to be a regular contributor to this wonderful publication; they have amazing photography. Although I haven’t participated in local art shows, in the future I would like to partake in a couple of wonderful shows here in Oklahoma City; An Affair of The Heart and the Paseo Art Festival. In the future I see my business growing on Etsy, contributing to other jewelry publications, perhaps a web site and ultimately publishing my own book on jewelry design and techniques.


Doesn’t Wendy have such beautiful jewelry. These are my personal favorites!

Thanks for reading!
