About Wecwish
Joined May 2016
I first started making jewelry, fascinators, and other accessories because my mom needed something different to wear. The usual plain pendants and sedate pearls simply wouldn’t work when she wanted to show off her style and wit to the rest of the world, and I wanted to help her find accessories that would help her stand out in all the best ways when she walked into a room.

Around the same time, I went to my first healing seminar, which taught me the traditional meanings and healing properties of gemstones and minerals from every corner of the world. Both my mother and I were fascinated, and since she'd already loved the hairpiece I made to spice up her outfits, I thought I'd give her some necklaces with these positive healing properties so she'd have even more accessories to enjoy. When people started asking her where she got all her beautiful new accessories, I started sharing my creations with other family members, friends, and neighbors.

At first, I'd just give my jewelry and hair accessories away to anyone who asked. When my mother and one of my friends suggested that I started selling my pieces, I was a little intimidated. What did I know about selling anything? What if no one was willing to pay for the little pieces of beauty that I created? When the pieces I put up on eBay didn't sell, where else could I take my business? Luckily, I had another friend, a radio show host who knew people that could teach me about buying and selling handmade goods on Etsy. I’m still learning how to run my own business.

I enjoy making hairpieces and jewelry, I love finding unusual, one-of-a-kind ways for people to wear the pretty butterflies, flowers, gemstones, beads, glitter, and other items that I pick up while I’m shopping for craft supplies, and I never get tired of dressing people in all the colors, shapes, and stones that make them feel happy and beautiful. Since my parents have always loved tracking down vintage items to collect and sell, I also sell some of the extra accessories that they’ve picked up from auctions, giving you the chance to fill your jewelry box with treasures that you might have fallen in love with on other vintage sites and rarities that you won’t find anywhere else on the Internet.

I have several online businesses including Etsy, Shopify, Wish, Fiverr, and Hostgator. I am learning about how to make money on the internet. I am not a pro at any of this. I enjoy learning how to do things online and am finding out that there is a lot of things to do out here. If you want to see the stuff that I have on my Etsy shop here is a link to it: http://httpcollege-students-need-money.com/Etsy

I also volunteer at the Whitewater Valley Railroad during the summer seasons. I do a variety of different things. Around Easter I am in charge of the Easter Bunny Train, in the Fall, I am in charge of the Pumpkin train, and during the summer season, I am part of the Ranger's act during the Wild West Train. I also help out with Thomas and Polar Express trains that run Thomas is in June, and Polar Express train runs from November to December.

As you can see, I am a very busy person. I have 2 adult children who are in college, and I am a single parent. We, my children and I, have been a part of the train since 2005. I created my online businesses to help my kids have a better life. I love learning new things and have met a lot of wonderful people. I have been told that I am the "Jane of all trades" but I am a master at none of them.

My Goal is to make enough money to quit my job, pay off my debt, and go on a cruise. I have never been on a cruise and I would like to go on a cruise.

Love your bio I really need to beef mine up a bit I'm sure ideas will come to me soon enough. I too am into healing crystals. One day I was going to the big city and I made a joke saying I was going to go to a jem shop and ask for a crystal that repelled negative energy helped with my depression attracted success and money and increased my confidence. Tall order right? Well guess what I found it !!! It was sitting in a impossibly hard to find little shop in a basement and I was immediately drawn to it even before I knew it had these properties. This miracle crystal was druizy Aqua aura as beautiful as it is powerful.

I wish you the best of luck and hope we can help each other on this new journey we embark on.

That sounds interesting. I like that crystal. It is a beauty. Just remember, though, as good as crystals are, we still have to do the work. The crystal does not do it. We have to learn all we can and do the work.

Thank you for inviting me to follow! It has been quite overwhelming since I joined here a couple of days ago, not the least am I impressed by the sincerity of the people in this community. We are all uniquely different, coming from different backgrounds, but deep down we are all on the same journey. I came here by discovering WA through reviews, and once here, I like what I see. I will update my profile in the coming days and weeks, presenting my work. To me, the potential here is a new experience, a new route, so I will take one step at a time. I have never before felt motivation like now to get to know people in an online community, which oftentimes is not as convincing as this one. I look forward to this!

Greetings Wanda!

I'm so glad you decided to "follow" me; we definitely have a lot in common, in terms of of our love for crafts. I've come to the conclusion that no mater what I'm doing, I just HAVE to create something. It doesn't have to be daily, or even weekly, but I absolutely relish any opportunity, where I can create something. I started my own greeting cards, using to decorate the cards, but admit that they have been put on the back burner, temporarily. Oh gosh, let me stop, or else I'll be babbling on until Monday morning, lol.

Looking forward to being a part of your network Wanda!

Hello Wanda, You have a great story and my daughter and I have attended vintage sales and enjoy the people and looking at the creative and artsy things. I enjoy the hair trinkets and fashion. I find it amazing how things that where common as a child are now considered vintage:)

Thank you for adding me into your network and I have added you as well :)

Hi Wanda, love your post on how you got started. Looks like you're well on your way. I'm still in the question stage of this and very curious about WA. I'm a lot like you I guess. I have a nice greenhouse and grow lots of plants and save seeds but I find myself giving them away to friends and neighbors. I do go to flea markets and sell in the spring. Now I want to do more because I know I'm sitting on a goldmine I just don't know how to get started!

This is a good place to start. Build a website. Go through either the boot camp or the Get Started here and you will learn how to do it. Don't expect an overnight success, though. It takes time. It is work too. I have been working on it for a few months. I still have improvements to do on it. Good luck! And ask for help. That is the best way to do it.

Creating a better life for yourself involves learning all that you can about the business you are interested in, in this case internet marketing, and you have certainly taken the right step by coming here:) You're right, it is a vast and expansive field, but one that is loaded with all kinds of opportunity...

There is a new sports app about to launch that's going to be bad ass! It is not being built by amateurs, this is a seasoned team led by Mark Mongie, designer of Madden Football and other game hits, building this game. Instead of paying millions of dollars to an advertising agency, they are paying the common man to spread the word and create a buzz about this thing. Think Uber and Air BNB, not Amway. This isn't an ongoing opportunity. It ends in a few weeks. You can sign up now and invite friends to play a free sports app. That's it. Get paid when they play and when the people they share with play, and the people those share with play and on and on! You can see and join my team for this great opportunity before it launches and build your team before Oct 1st because that's the official launch date and no more affiliates will be added at that time, only players after that. Go to unitedgames.com and use my access code 4484d6 to join as a affiliate, and get ready to make alot of money..especially with your network of followers..you share this with them and you'll do super good with this affiliate program bc almost everyone loves sports and this is gonna change the game w/this sports app! If you don't join within 72hrs let me know bc i'll have to get you a new access code..Enjoy my friend!:) Let's network and make money in your sleep!

Hello Wanda, Thanks for the follower. I'm a crafter too and I first started out making jewelry. I have an Etsy shop, but I've kind of lost interest in it once I started here at Wealthy Affiliate. We have similar goals and dreams too. Here's hoping all of our dreams come true!

Thank you for looking at my site. I got the main review template from the boot camp. Here is a link to the template: It is at the bottom of the page. You can use the same template. I am not sure if he calls it the same thing. But I think of it as a template. I think that Kyle says that it is a Product review template or something like that.

Thank you, Florence. I am not sure if I would call it experiences with online profiting or online failures/mistakes. I would be happy to share anything I have. But by no means have I succeeded in reaching my goals yet. Check out my website and my blogs.

I would also appreciate any feedback as well. (That is the key, in my opinion, getting feedback for any and everything you do.)

How wonderful that you're able to make jewelry. I'm glad you started selling it. I realize you love making it, but the supplies cost as your time does and selling enables you to do what you love more, both jewelry making and the trains.
How fun!

You and I have similar likes - shape and color draw me in. It's why I love making cards. I can't wait to check out your etsy store.
thanks for sharing!

Nope couldn't wait! Had to check your store out. I love the flower resin brooch.

Wanda, nice to hear from you and I would love to see some of your work at Etsy.

Etsy is one place I am trying to affiliate with as I love the handmade items shown there. I will figure out how to do this soon.

Don't go on a cruise, go on a 'line voyage' and keep going. I don't know if this term is still used but many years ago I travelled from Vancouver to Sydney, Australia twice by ship.

With cruising you go in a circle and meet people who are living it up and going back to their usual lives. (And that is fun too!) Line voyaging is using a ship to get from point A to B and then explore B before going on to C and so forth. With line voyaging you meet like minded people who are travelling to learn about people and places. And they have a good time on the ship while doing this.

I have to fantabulous voyages and will do it again sometime in the future.

Work hard here and you will go places. So keep in touch.
Reply
wecwish Premium
Wow, thank you. I never heard of a line voyage. That sounds like fun. It is rather easy to be an affiliate with Etsy. First you have an account. Then you go under "Join the community" at the bottom, just click on the Affiliates link. It will take you to the "Become an Etsy Affiliate" and just fill in the information. It is not that hard.
