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
