Hello world!

Hello there! And welcome to my little corner of the blog world! I'm Alyssa, owner and creator around these parts. I'm a mama to my sweet & sassy Amaia, wife to Axel, and the maker behind my little Amaia Papaya shop.



Since this space is new, I'll give you a little intro to me and my life. I've been a maker & crafter for as long as I can remember. Sewing and crafting has always just been my thing. Growing up I'd trade the sports field for drawing and painting in a heartbeat. So it's no surprise that life's path would take me here to starting my own little handmade business. During my college years I developed a love for all things natural, organic, and environmentally-friendly, so I combined the two passions and started making handmade reusable goods with an eco-friendly focus. And since this is such a new world to me, I thought what better way to document my journey than right here with you! So join me as I dive head first into making a new blog and shop! 

Here's a little bit more about me and my family:

1) We live in our tiny one-bedroom condo just outside of Boston. It may be small, but we make it work for our lifestyle and budget. My little sewing studio is nestled in the corner of our living room.



2) My husband Axel was born and raised in Guatemala City, so our family is a blend of many cultures!



3) When our daughter Amaia was born in July of 2014, our world was completely flipped upside down and we wouldn't have it any other way. She stole our hearts forever. She may be little, but she is the most strong-willed, determined, and independent little lady I know. Her timid momma envies her strong personality, for sure!



4) I've been sewing since I was a young girl. And to be honest, sometimes I find it to be one of the most frustrating things ever. But also one of the most rewarding and fulfilling skills I've ever learned. More on that later.



5) I drive my friends and family bonkers with my love of everything organic. Sure, go ahead and call me a tree hugger, but I swear it will all be worth it. 



Now tell me a little bit about yourself! It is SO nice to have you here. I am seriously blessed and beyond excited to have this new online space to share ideas, tips, and ramblings. Until next time!

Alyssa
