I started The Mad Padder in 2010 with a core line of personalized notepads produced here in my studio of Frisco, Texas. I always wanted a set of notepads with my name on them and set out to create them on my own. Friends saw how cute they turned out when I wrote a short note to them, carried one with a grocery list written on it, or wrote a note to the school for something. The product line then developed over the second year as I received inquiries from buyers on Etsy, local shoppers in craft shows, and friends & family who shared something they wanted. I have also always strived to keep The Mad Padder's product line current with the fads & trends.
The Mad Padder is a sole proprietor, but I do collaborate with my mother on quite a few things and share a booth with her in local craft shows (her artwork is featured on Etsy's Sign For It store at www.signforit.etsy.com
). You can also find The Mad Padder at 540 Mercantile in McKinney, TX, and The Market at 76067 in Mineral Wells, TX.
