Missy Mittel{staedt} is a rural Wisconsinite who strives to create art every day. She is an over caffeinated author, illustrator, greeting card designer, and independent publisher, who has a serious love for family, coffee, laughing too loud, Dolly Parton, and life in the northwoods. 

Missy currently has two self-authored and illustrated picture books {Meet Mack-Mack, the Little Lumberjack (2018) & I Love You More Than Macaroni and Cheese (2019)} and two self-illustrated coloring / activity books. Her third up and coming picture book {Paw-Paw, the Tracker} is currently in process.

Through out countless hours of illustrating, Missy found an accidental love for designing greeting cards. What started as a few punny cards, has now grown into 70+ designs and its own venture, Greetings From Wisco by Missy Mittel. 

Missy loves imagining her books, cards, and creative activities spreading happiness to people near and far. Spreading love and laughter is truly what motivates all of her creations. 

Both of Missy’s picture books are available on Amazon. Her books, greeting cards, and activity books are available on Etsy. OR find her items at a local Wisconsin retailer near you! Find a list of totally rad retailers that carry Missy’s items in the ‘stores’ tab.
