About

Oie With the Kittens...?

One might wonder why a shop named "My Paper Kittens" is curiously not selling any paper kittens! Well, I had intended to sell my kitten doodles, but... Something better came to life :)

Going back to college a few years ago get an English as a Second Language teacher certification, I decided to organize my school supplies and look around for organizers, only to realize I can make a better one myself! That's how my kittens were abandoned in favor of botanical art, and lots of paper products. From an organizer, to a calendar, to cards... I've been so inspired by the beauty that can be found everywhere in Michigan during the blooming months.

I decided to combine my passion for photography with my design skills, and deep love of paper, to create cards, stationary, letter sheets, calendars and anything I can think of to make life brighter, easier, sorted, cuter, natured-filled, and happier.

I am deeply committed to running a sustainable and eco-friendly business, and have made sure all the papers and supplies I use are sustainable forested, recycled, ethically sourced and produced. I recycle all the excess materials my business generates (even ink cartridges!) and ship using eco-friendly shipping supplies.

Please know I take great pride in creating the products you receive and love hearing from customers, and working on special requests. Please contact me with any questions and requests and let's make it so :)

In my other day job I teach English Language Arts in a wonderful school district, with amazing students and staff.

I hope you find joy and elation in my little creations :)

    Very sadly Zeus had lost his life to cancer unexpectedly on May 30, 2018. He will be truly missed.

Thanks for taking the time to read my store policies ;)

☆★A little bit about me: ☆★
I live in Michigan with my husband and our huge pooches. We have a rescued Great Pyrenees named Calliope, and a rescued English Mastiff named Zeus. I teach English Language Arts and English as a Second Language at a local school district. I have been selling my stationery in an Etsy store since 2012.



★ About My Artwork★

I photograph all the images that I use in the making of all stationery and calendars. I like to use what I grow in my own garden, or what our local farmers grow in their gardens, but I am just so excited any time I see any flora out and about :) I try to keep the store filled with as many florals as possible, but if you don't see the one you'd like, do contact me! I usually create custom prints during our gorgeous Michigan summer months.

★ECO FRIENDLY & SUSTAINABILITY ★
Being eco responsible is very important to me, especially since we are talking about paper here. I usually choose eco-friendly and recycled paper and packaging whenever possible, and recycle all excess materials (including ink cartridges!).
