Episode 06 - Wendy with the Pursuit of Happymess


Wendy Vollans is a Mom of two creative teenage girls and a maker. She does such great projects like small carvings and resin work.  She is also well known as one of the most generous people within the maker community.  She also seems to step into a Mom role helping others within the community make it through their own struggles.  In this episode we dive deep into some personal struggles she has overcome and how making helps make it though many things.


What started as a journey lesson for homeschooling her two daughters, buying “all the things” for woodworking, has quickly become an outlet for Wendy. So much so that she gets a bit cranky if it goes too long in between making sessions. After her husband passed, her and both her girls had, as you can imagine, a long adjustment period and things to work through. They are now on the brighter side of things. Wendy shares all of this and more in this episode.
