Tammy Haddix has been drawing for as long as she can remember. It didn’t take long for little Tammy to decide on her career goals. When she was 5 years old, her mother took her along to a Hallmark store. Tammy was so impressed by all the beautiful artwork that she declared her intention to work for Hallmark right then. Dreams do come true. It is pretty amazing that she will be celebrating her 25th anniversary with Hallmark this June. She is a sculptor in the Keepsake Sculpting Studio, creating lots of Christmas ornaments, but started her career designing baby albums, party ware and gift wrap. She loves to create cute and whimsical things that tell a story, capture a moment in time or represent a special relationship. She strives for the “Aww” factor or an emotional reaction to her work. She loves to hear stories from collectors about what her ornaments mean to them and why they collect them.
