Having already stretched the family purse strings by trying "all things crafty", Wendy Hawkinson was more than a little concerned when she realized was addicted to stamping after attending her first party. Luckily, her mother-in-law found stamping at about the same time, so Wendy had a comrade-in-arms!
Wendy Hawkinson started her stamping career as a professional purchaser, doing her part by helping other demonstrators meet their sales quotas for years and years! She finally became a Stampin' Up! demonstrator in August of 2003, and won her husband over, when he realized how passionate she was about stamping, and that stamping was not just a passing fancy. It also helped that Stampin' Up! was a small business Wendy could run from home while raising their daughters.
Aside from accidentally setting our flip-top ink pads alight while trying to open them, and catching them in midair before they can land on the carpet (ink side down in the palm of her hand, of course), Wendy doesn't mind getting her hands dirty. Getting inky fingerprints on her cards has resulted in some very pretty results because of the layers she has added to cover up the smudges!
Wendy's favorite Stampin' Up! product du jour is our cardstock. A self-proclaimed paper hoarder, she believes “You can never have too much paper!” She gets a lot of her inspiration online from other stampers, and Wendy wants to make sure you know, "You can never spend too much time stamping. Stamping is good for the soul." I recommend you take advantage of Wendy's blog right now to get some inspiration, while you're waiting for the Royal Blog Tour to start.
