I’ve said it before, and I am going to say it again (you knew I would!) – one of my favourite things about the magazine is the chance to meet so very many talented and creative individuals. Our second maker in the June issue is Erin Weiss of Boolah Baguette. Erin started her Etsy shop shortly after her daughter was born. She creates sweet plushies from her home in Saskatoon, Canada where she lives with her husband and two little children.
Aren’t they adorable?! I particularly like the little dog (I think it might be a French Bulldog?) on the top row. Rosie and I were both intrigued by the name Erin chose for her business, and she told us that
“I realise that Boolah Baguette is kind of an odd name! It was what I called a favourite doll when I was little – I’m pretty sure Boolah was the name I gave and that my dad added Baguette. It was just one of those names that I couldn’t get out of my head when trying to decide what to call my (very tiny at the time) business.”
It’s definitely a very memorable name and I’m sure doesn’t get confused with other businesses at all! And its lovely whimsical nature definitely suits Erin’s work ….
I can honestly say I’ve never seen a flying Guinea Pig before – he is absolutely amazing! If you’d like to see more of Erin’s work then as well as on Etsy, you can find her on Facebook too, so please do pop over and say hello. Thanks so much Erin for talking to us this month.
