hi there, I’m Kate

One day my mom mailed me her old Cricut machine, convinced that I needed it in my life. At the time, I had absolutely no idea what I could possible use it for. I never had considered myself to be creative. But then I started planning a joint birthday party for my kids Evelyn and Luke, and couldn’t find any good invitations for them. So I took out my new Cricut and got to work.

Little by little, I realized that I loved to create. I love to make something that can brighten someone’s day. In November 2020, Happy Little Chaos was born with the mission to make every day a celebration.

While trying to decide on a logo, we had a friendly visitor creeping into our porch each night. Our little raccoon friend was feasting on our cat’s automatic feeder, making himself right at home.

It didn’t take long for me to fall in love with him, his spunk, and the fact that he always looked like he was dressed for a costume party.

Walter was created to celebrate our hungry friend. He’s a reminder that raccoons, like kids, make us laugh, constantly get into mischief, and will forever want snacks.
