Wendy Ramlakhan - Nin_Nin
WOW!! Somebody, PINCH ME!! I still can’t believe that I’ve actually been invited to be a Dirty Girl. I admit that it’s been a lofty goal of mine since I started stamping over 4 years ago but I never actually expected it to happen. When Lydia sent me a text saying she wanted to run an idea she had by me, I never suspected a thing - or else I probably wouldn’t have waited for over an hour before replying. LOL And even while we chatted she kind of snuck the whole “Dirty Girl” thing in and all I could manage to say was, “Wait. WHAT?!?!?“
My name is Wendy Ramlakhan and I’m known here at SCS as Nin Nin. I’m a born and raised Georgia girl, now living in sunny Orlando, Florida with my beautiful family. I’ve been happily married for 8 years to my husband who spoils his family rotten. I love being a stay at home mom to our 6 year old son, Nathan and our 5 year old daughter, Brooke. They are hands-down my most favorite people in the whole world and it’s truly an honor to be their mother.
All my life I have enjoyed various crafty hobbies, but one thing I swore I would never be is a stamper! Although I loved playing with paper, I had no clue what you were suppose to do with all those stamps and ink. However, that all changed 4 years ago when I wanted to make invitations for my daughters 1st birthday party and went searching online for inspiration. I stumbled across Splitcoaststampers and found myself mesmerized by all of the cards I saw with beautifully colored stamped images. The very next week I purchased dozens of Copic markers and spent countless hours sitting at my kitchen table teaching myself how to color while my babies took their naps. I had finally found my true creative passion.
Since then, I have had the pleasure of my work being published in a few magazines, designing for some amazing stamp companies (such as The Greeting Farm, Your Next Stamp, There She Goes Clear Stamps) and teaching my own Copic coloring workshops throughout the state of Florida.
This is a tremendous honor for me and I’d like to say “THANK YOU” to Lydia for this incredibly opportunity to a part of the Dirty Dozen and to share what I love.
