Cultivating Curiosity

The Paper Mouse is all about curiosity. Our motto is “Little Wonders for the Curious Heart.” One reason we love stationery so much is that it facilitates learning and discovering, and we love exploring and testing the differences between products.

We’re starting the Cultivating Curiosity project with the goal of helping you get in touch with your own feelings of curiosity. Each week on this blog, we’ll post a new prompt to help you reflect on your daily habits or consider a topic you may not spend much time thinking about, to inspire you to stay curious about the world and perhaps discover a new interest. We hope you’ll join us for this journey!
