Missy Mittel{staedt} is a rural Wisconsinite who strives to create art every day. She is a slightly over caffeinated children’s book author, illustrator, and publisher, who also has a serious love for nature, laughing too loud, and life in the northwoods of Wisconsin. Her love for her surroundings, Wisconsin upbringing, and real life characters are very much reflected in her work. 

She currently has two self-authored and illustrated children’s 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 children’s book {Paw-Paw, the Tracker} is currently in process.

Through out countless hours of illustrating, Missy found an accidental love in designing extremely nerdy greeting cards. What started as five punny love cards, has now grown into its own venture, which she recently branded as, Greetings From Wisco by Missy Mittel.

Missy loves imagining her cards, books, and coloring activities spreading happiness, love, and laughter to people near and far. That thought is what truly makes her heart happy and motivates all of her creations. 

Both of Missy’s children’s books are available on Amazon and her greeting cards + activity books are available on Etsy. Or find her items locally! There is a list of ridiculously awesome local Wisconsin retailers in the ‘stores’ tab.
