Wendie’s Cards

Local woman, Wendie Johnstone, has turned her love of photography into a successful small business. Wendie received her first digital camera from her father over 14 years ago and from then on she started looking at everything through the prism of a photographic lens.

Holding down a full time job and working on her business from home is challenging but Wendie loves what she is doing. When she is out and about she always has her ‘photo head on’.

Wendie can produce cards for weddings, anniversaries and bereavements with customers being able to choose something personal or from her large stock of archived material. As well as cards she can also make: key rings, coasters, calendars and bookmarks all for both personal and business customers.

Wendie now has 5 digital cameras and several mobile phones all of which she can use to take her fabulous photos. Her family home has a craft room where her processing can take place.  She recently exhibited her work at the summer crafts fair in Kirkwall.

Wendie is now looking towards getting her Christmas stock ready and people can contact her for personalised Christmas cards or buy from her ready made collection.

For the future this enterprising creative woman is exploring the possibilities of upcycling and is experimenting with sea glass.
