Anette and I met in grade nine at an all-girls Catholic high school. We were the dynamic duo in those days frequenting our favourite disco clubs every weekend. We loved to dance the night away and thought we were the cat’s whiskers. Those were the good old days of our footloose youth.

Today, Anette and I are both entrepreneurs, and you can find her Blanimals creations at Figg Street Co. Many of these items have been popular with both children and adults, including a recently released hinged box with an adorable miniature family sleeping inside, which is a favourite on Instagram.

We hope you enjoyed this special interview with my dear friend, Anette DiMatteo of Blanimals. Her creations always put a smile on my face when I see them in the shop and when I wrap them up for customers.

Wishing you a wonderful, cozy week, as we transition into the season of crisp air greeting us when we step outdoors!
