About

Just a little tidbit about me: I’ve always had some type of hobby from as early as I can remember whether it is reading, journaling or playing sports, I always had something that occupied my down time. I wanted to be an English teacher when I was younger and even took a few college courses to see if it was something that appeased me, it didn’t and I fell in love with the arts, everything to do with art; art history, photography, industrial design, theater, interior design, architecture and any side knick-knack artsy hobby I could learn.

It wasn’t until my second year in community college when I buckled down at that awkward stage (you know, pick a career path the parents would say) that I decided on interior design. Since we, as a society, spend the majority of our time inside, something about creating interesting and livable spaces interested me.

Just a little tidbit about me: I’ve always had some type of hobby from as early as I can remember whether it is reading, journaling or playing sports, I always had something that occupied my down time.

It wasn’t until my second year in community college when I buckled down at that awkward stage (you know, pick a career path the parents would say) that I decided on interior design. Since we, as a society, spend the majority of our time inside, something about creating interesting and livable spaces interested me.

I graduated from a very rigorous program at The University of Houston with a degree in interior design and architecture in 2008. From there I looked for work in a much dilapidated economy with not much luck. After a few months of coming out of college full throttle and realizing that the only work was commuting in horrible stressful traffic to Houston for a job (which I had been doing the past four years for school and didn't want to spend the next few years doing), my husband and I decided to start trying for our family. Although, I would have enjoyed getting my feet wet in the interior design field before starting a family, it was the best decision I had ever made.

I am now a stay-at-home mother to two beautiful daughters. I feel very blessed to have such a wonderful and supportive husband towards my hobbies. Creating these accessories for little girls is what keeps me from developing “mommy brain” and I’m sure my husband would agree =D

A little history of why I name my shop Papoo’s Closet: My daughter is a dark haired, dark eyed beauty and wrapped in her swaddle blanket all cozy in her bed right after birth, she was instantly given the nickname Papoose. And between the few other nicknames I now call her, it always seems to come full circle, right back to Papoo.

Happy shopping and God Bless,
Kim
