The Paper Scissors Stone Team
Paper Scissors Stone is run by a team of five women plus Richie:
Philothea, Christine, Lydia, Ashley, Lynn & Richie
We share in the management, decision-making and hands-on work around the warehouse. If you call, either Lydia or Chris will answer; when you place an order, one of us will carefully pull, pack and ship your supplies! Because we are such a small team, we hold ourselves to a high standard. We take pride in our work and the care and support we give our customers, our community and each other.
Philothea is our Owner and number one cheerleader. She truly believes in the value, history and intention of this Business, Philothea purchased Paper Scissors Stone in 2018 to support and strengthen our vision and invest in the exceptional service we provide to the Waldorf community. With great entrepreneurial insight and enthusiasm, Philothea has been involved in many community projects over the years, including the conception and establishment of Pleasant Ridge Waldorf School. She remains involved in public projects and programs on the daily and embodies the friendship, care and hard work that is found in the heart of every thriving community.
Christine is our General Manager, in-house artist as well as Marketing and Product Development. A lifelong artist, K-12 art teacher and former art supply business owner, Chris has years of experience using, teaching and researching art materials! She manages our social media and is learning to filter her knowledge of art through a Waldorf lens. “I discovered Waldorf a bit later in life, (2013) when I started teaching art at Youth Initiative, a Waldorf inspired high school and then my daughter attended 4 years at YIHS as well, What a magical journey it has been, I highly recommend it!”
Lydia is our Warehouse Manager in Training who assists customers
while packing and shipping out orders.
An artist and musician, she is often overheard
singing while she works. “I had a largely transformative experience
going to a Waldorf based high school and will forever look back
fondly on my time there.”
Ashley supports the warehouse mostly by cutting felt, accepting incoming supplies and re-packing our bulk wool & Stone paint. She is passionate about off grid living and is currently gathering materials for her future thatched-roof cob house.
Richie works part time keeping track of our consignment inventory at Ewetopia’s retail Fiber Store and jumps in wherever we need him to help out. He is also a personal trainer and mailman, and can be found biking all over town.
