Q & A with Wood Paper Scissors

Lindsay Day Cornwall Life new products


For the first blog post we thought we should tell you a bit about us, who we are and what we do. We were recently the Maker Feature on the very amazing Holly & Co. blog, as it covers all the bases we're sharing it here too (with some more photo's!)

What do you love most about your business?
Our favourite thing about our business is the flexibility we have when designing new products, there are no rules! We especially love it when we are working individually on new products but can see how elements of each others designs can be merged to create and inspire an even better product. Two heads are better than one!

What do you enjoy most about being your own boss?
We both really like the freedom of being our own boss. We love being able to take turns doing the school run and finish early on a sunny day. But we also appreciate that we can see the business grow as a direct result of how hard we work.

What has changed most in life since you started working for yourself?
We have fulfilled a dream of ours in relocating our lives to the Cornish coast. This would have been pretty much impossible for either of us in our previous jobs, but now we live and work by the sea and our lives couldn’t really be more different!


What's your favourite word or phrase that makes you feel good?
Our favourite word is klys, which is Cornish for cosy! We love that Cornwall has a language of it’s own and were so pleased to find a word that represents life’s simple pleasures. We think there is nothing better after a long beach walk than being snug, warm and klys, with a chunky knit and a lovely mug of tea, on a windswept and mizzly (another great Cornish word) day. We feel our products encourage people to do the same, inspiring cosy, klysful moments in the lives and homes of others.
