Emily

What do you do here at LooptyHoops? I work mostly in the shipping department. What’s your favorite part of the job? I love playing with earrings and getting to listen to my audio books! Where are you from originally? Sublimity, Oregon. Do you have any kids? Any pets? I have a husband, two daughters, and two cats. The husband is John, the daughters are Izzy (pictured) and Peach, and the cats are Luna and Perdy. What's something most people don't know about you? That I was homeschooled and started college at 16 as a result. Any hobbies? I am an avid quilter, spinner, knitter, and occasional crocheter. I also really love vintage and antique sewing machines. I do most of my sewing on a treadle sewing machine. It is very satisfying to me to be the one controlling the machine. If you were a bird, what kind would you be? I would be an African Grey Parrot. I loved Doctor Doolittle growing up, and I thought that Polynesia was really neat - her ability to speak pretty much all the animal languages and how she was able to teach the Doctor. And if you were a pickle..? A perfectly valid question. I much prefer dill. I can't stand sweet pickles. What's your favorite movie? The Back to the Future Trilogy (although my favorite is the third). And finally, Emily, what’s your favorite LooptyHoops earring? I really like the yellow gold hoops with the leaves engraved in them.

 

Heidi

What do you do here? A little of this, a little of that. What’s your favorite part of the job? So far...shipping. I love all the stickers. Do you have any kids? Any pets? One kid, one dog. What’s something most people don’t know about you? I'm an ordained minister. What do you like to do outside of work? I sing in a band, act in community theater plays and musicals whenever I can, read obsessively, and sell used LP records.. If you were an animal, what kind would you be? I would be a narwhal, because that's pretty darn close to a unicorn. And if you were a donut...? I would be a donut with sprinkles. Because sprinkles. So far, what’s your favorite LooptyHoops earring? It's a popular one. A simple white gold endless hoop. And finally, is there a question you want to ask? What do you call an alligator wearing a vest? I don't know. An investigator! This interview is over.
