Clearance Sale!

Time for a year end clearance sale!  I have taken my Etsy shop, Willow Walker Designs off of vacation early.  I am only listing clearance items right now.  This is a chance for some great deals and your last chance for these items!  Please stop by and check out these amazing bargains!

Some pieces like the Azteca necklace will be torn apart and made into something new if it doesn't sell.  I originally listed this necklace for $125.00 US.  It is now clearance priced at $75.  

I am going through my stock and will add more items as I do.  I    will be fairly ruthless as I go.  Previous work will be put into one of two categories, keep as is or tear it apart and recycle the pieces into something new.

Welcome 2013!

New pieces and designs!

I'm ready for 2013.  I have a few goals in mind.  Nothing too overwhelming. I am feeling better than I have in many years and wish I would of seen a doctor sooner. That negative voice in my head is quiet.  All the daily aches and pains are gone.  I finally feel that I have the energy and interest to do much of what I have been putting off in my life.  

I have chosen the word "Explore" for 2013.  I will be exploring my home, finding everything in it and about it.   I made a good start in the kitchen when I did the kitchen-but I've never made it any further.   Cleaning, sorting, tossing, re-purposing and organizing it to suit me and mine.

I will continue to explore new techniques and all those umpteen  jillion ideas I have for jewelry.  New ideas for fused dichroic glass cabochons and of course wirewrapping.  

I will be doing a bit or re-branding for my products and will be offering some great bargains on some of my older pieces as I take my shop and jewelry in the direction I want to go.

My first goal for 2013 is the cleaning, sorting, tossing and re-organizing of what was my father's "computer room".  I really feel that getting this room done will be key to the whole house. It will help me to move books and more out of three or four (or more) rooms in the house.  And the idea of having it all in one place is rather amazing. When it is done it will be my "office".

I have made it through a shelving unit (used as a bookcase) of books, catalogs, and other miscellaneous junk.  I have thrown stuff away that is older than my 19 year old son! I don't think it has really been cleaned since my folks moved in here back in the mid-nineties!
