About

Misc. Delights Co. is focused on encouraging personal connections and using environmentally friendly resources so we are loving on the earth while we love on those dear to us!

My name is Ellie Steltz, and I am the owner of Misc. Delights Co. I would love to share a little history of how this business came to be! For as far back as I can remember, I have always loved creating. I would find creative ways to use just about anything and had a very hard time throwing anything away because of that. As I grew up, this passion for reusing things in creative ways led me to research how the wastefulness in the first world culture affects our natural resources and quality of life. Living in both Brazil and Angola, Africa while growing up also helped me gain an outward perspective on the waste in the world today as I witnessed how people lived on so little in many areas of these countries.

The wastefulness in our culture today is what led me to be passionate about using recycled materials and creating thoughtful products that can be reused. Whenever possible, I choose eco friendly materials to use in my products. As residents of the earth, we have a responsibility to steward and nurture the bountiful blessings of nature.

One of the greatest inspirations for my creativity is nature. This is reflected in many of my design choices. I also love connecting with people and inspiring others to do the same. "Snail-mail" is one of the best ways to show someone you care about them and are thinking of them. That’s why I love creating greeting cards. My mission is to inspire people to send more letters to their loved ones, and make it easy for them to do so!

The other great inspiration is coffee! People gather around coffee all over the world and I want to create meaningful items that bring joy to your home and coffee time.

I craft the mailers myself using recycled chipboard from EcoEnclose and homemade glue. I aim to produce minimal waste during my creation and packaging processes.

The art of sending thoughtful greeting cards does not have to be lost in our tech-filled world. Instead, it will become all the more precious as an alternative to sending emails and texts. I hope you have been inspired by my shop and reading a little about me and why I do what I do...now go write a letter to someone you love!
