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!
