Your Podcast cracked me up. It's a great story too! Did your husband have trouble assimilating this departure from what normally constitutes retirement? What a ride - fun!

You rock Wendy!! Thanks so much for all of your inspiration.

mamablitger said...

What a lot of fun listening to the interview. Also I enjoyed the talking about "Clearly for Art". I love that product but always forget about it. These days we do have so many exciting mediums, stencils, dies etc to play with. But playing with the Clearly for Art gives so many exciting options.
Thank you for sharing the great interview and for making it accessible so many ways ( Google, Facebook, iTunes ). And thank you for the generous give-away. I would LOVE to offer this stamp set a new home. It does'nt need to feel abandoned....lol. Thank you for always providing so much inspiration. I love your art and your products.
Hugs from Monica.... Spain

bmerves said...

I love the innovative ways you use any given stamp set.

Rachael Brown said...

Beautiful set! You were wonderful on the podcast. It was great hearing about how you got started and about your wonderful husband!

Susan Salyer said...

I just wanted to tell you how much I loved the interview. I was a CNA for a little over 15 years. I always wanted to get my RN but just didn't have the time. My Grandmama had Alzheimer's and my Mother had sever health problems and to be honest she died last year of alcoholism. I took care of them worked many shifts and raised my son. I was also so glad to hear how to say your last name. You always say it so fast I was not sure lol.You keep on going Wendy. It is always such a privileged to watch or listen to you and see your fabulous creations. Hugs

Bee Teske said...

I love your style!

Erin Glee said...

I listened to the Podcast a few days ago and loved it! Just remembered to leave a comment to invite that sweet stamp set over to my craft room! Thanks for the chance : )

Reginella T said...

That lovely stamp set is the one I am missing. The flowers are beautiful, but the bird is the best.
