Oreo the Christmas Cat


MEOWry Christmas to one and all!

We've got an extra special feature FUR you!

Introducing Oreo!  He is Papemelroti's newest intern!  He's such a delightful sight hard at work on the products that we thought we would allow you to get to know him.  He comes every day and stays from 9 to 5 PM!



You can see that Oreo has a very big influence on productivity here at the office!  Here he is making sure we get our PAWs for a while.



Here he is busy filing.  It's a bit hard to reach the things you want when you're just a little kitty!  Good thing Oreo is pretty nimble on his toes!


Oreo is seen above trying his hand at designing.  He does prefer a real mouse though.


Oreo checking designer Peggy's work and suggesting improvements.  (Incidentally Peggy is this furbaby's mom!)


Product quality testing going on.  Don't worry, Oreo isn't allergic!


Time to test Oreo's reflexes!  He needs this to attend to all our customer's needs!

All work and (lots of) play makes Oreo really really exhausted!  Okay let's give him some space and leave him to have a catnap!




After the working day is over, Oreo hitches a ride home with Papemelroti's Managing Director Patsy (see above).

Note: We're sorry to inform you that Oreo is not available for further interviews or meet and greets.  He is the shy type and prefers to keep working at his area.  TV appearances?  We'll think about it.

Shiny Shimmery Splendid Christmas Decor




This year's Christmas decor was conceptualized by Papemelroti artist Robert Alejandro.

As always, it has the whimsical feel of child's play.  It makes use of eco-friendly materials that are easily accessible for people to try making the decor on their own.  It's simple and fun to do with family to brighten up your home for the holidays.  It's also very affordable and you can make as many shapes as you like!

We are sharing with you how to make this shiny, shimmery, splendid Christmas decor!  Read on...



How to make the molded shapes:

1. Download (Right-click on the images below and choose "Save As") and print shapes.  Cut the shapes using the patterns.










2. Draw a faint center line on the shapes.
3. Pinch the center portions of the shapes leaving the edges "un-pinched".



4. Do the same for the letter shapes (see below).







And there you have it folks!  Wasn't that so easy?

Sneak Peek into an Artist's Retreat



In the midst of stone and steel city, you open a door like any other door but find yourself in a world unlike any other world. Aha!  It's the hideaway of a creative genius!  Let's take a look around.


Masks and mobiles wistfully glance at the glass window.


The man on the moon, the original work of the artist, looks on.

Little bits and things from around the world bear witness to their owners itchy feet.  Feet that can't keep still and long to see all that the world has to offer.


One might think he wandered into a circus, antique shop or a child's playground (all at once).


A highway in the sky carries calling cards.


Do you know who's lair we stumbled into?  Here's a hint... He's the only male designer in the names that make up "papemelroti".


If you said "Robert Alejandro" then you're absolutely right!  This is where his thoughts meet paint and pen.  Being a very private person, this is a singularly rare treat indeed!  But now we need to go out as he might come back soon!






















Free Advent Calendar 2014

The star that shone bright
Pierced the darkness of night 
To awake a world in slumber
And fill it with wonder
O precious Son that came
Emmanuel is His name
Saviour Lord Shepherd King
Your love makes me sing
No other God will I adore 
Worship you forevermore


Ahhh... Christmas!  It's the best time of the year!

Friends and family gather together more than any other season.  Twinkling lights signal it's coming and our hearts are all aglow with this extraordinary feeling of wonder!

Wouldn't you like to make this Christmas even more special?

"For unto us a Child is born...and His name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, Almighty God, the Everlasting Father, the Price of Peace!"   Isaiah 9:6

Jesus is indeed our Greatest Gift at Christmas (and always).  His coming bridged a gap from God to man, from temporal to eternal, from finite to infinite, from death to life!

We are recipients of His unfailing love and mercy 365 days of the year!

"What can I offer the Lord for all the goodness He has shown me?"  Psalm 116:12

We are extremely blessed (even when we don't know it).  It's only right that we give praise where praise is due.  

Starting tomorrow, Nov. 30, the first day of advent, we can work on our gift to God this Christmas!
With this project, you not only get to give God a smile with this gift, but Christmas won't just pass you by, it will be much more meaningful!  We will also grow in gratitude and in our faith as well.

How to use the calendar:

1.  Download the Calendar by right-clicking on the image and saving on your computer.

2. Print out and hang in a prominent area of your home or office.

3. Spend some time in prayer to thank Him for the biggest blessings every day.  

4. Write down a blessing in the calendar spaces until Christmas Day!  


That will be our offering of gratitude for this most grace-filled season!



Print out copies for every member of your family.  This is especially great to do for children as they are really the most excited for Christmas!
