Life After Heart Attack
I have always been creative and busy with this or that hobby most of my life and dreamed that one day I would turn my passion into a business.. My husband was a self-business owner for over 30 years and spent most of his time trying to make a comfortable living for us. Then the unthinkable happened. My husband had a heart attack in August of 2012.. We were faced with high doctor bills, hospital bills and just our own personal bills and expenses. Life as we knew it had changed.

I was already selling a few items on Etsy but knew I had to make some drastic changes and put my fingers and mind to work! My husband was always making remarks that I was leaving a paper trail from room to room....so that's how the idea of Kat's Paper Trail was created!

Life After Heart Attack

Everything seemed to fall into place and for the first time my husband and I realized....life is too short to spend worrying about things you can do nothing about. We adjusted our lifestyle and turned my little hobby dream into a business that we can both work at and enjoy more of the little things in life. Who knew that a major thing like a heart attack would start a brand new career and life for us both.

We have settled into our simpler life in a small rural Texas community and spend most of our days making paper goods to use in weddings, receptions, showers and so much more. We love what we do and strive to have excellent customer service and quality handcrafted merchandise.
We are very happy making our little paper trail from room to room.
