Read the interview here:
Who are you?
My name is Amy
Where are you?
I live in NJ, just outside NYC
Why do you hand make your products?
I absolutely adore working with paper and love knowing that my blocks are the go-to baby shower & first birthday gift for so many people.
How long do they take to make?
It takes about 2 days to make set of blocks because the non-toxic sealant needs time to dry between coats. Between cutting paper, sanding and sealing it seems like a long process, but over the last few years I’ve become quite efficient at it.
What hopes/dreams do you have for your products? Where would you like to see them?
In the near future, I hope to expand my Paper Doll Blocks line and develop a few others. I have some new concepts that I’m working on for this fall, and am axious to share them with everyone! I have two young girls at home right now, and hope that once they are off to school full-time, I am able to grow tiny giraffe™ and expand to even more boutiques and online stores.
Thank you and good luck Amy!
