Hello I'm Leslie and if you are wondering about the name of my shop well here is the story.
I had been trying to find a shop name that fit ME. I threw around a couple ideas nothing clicked. Then after a particularity rough day with my 2 kids the name was born. I had been told by my youngest (who was 5 at the time) several times in one day I was mean . After saying NO to something for the 10th time that day he tells me YOU ARE THE MEANEST MOM IN THE WORLD !! My response to being called that was to just look at him and say Thank You I'm so glad I'm Number 1 at something and I began chanting I'm number. Well I decided to just go with it and that is the story of how Mean Mama Designs got her name. By the way I am still called the Meanest Mom in The World on occasion .

This is how my addiction to creating and sell began though. It all began with scrap booking and little art projects…

This is how my addiction to creating and sell began though. It all began with scrap booking and little art projects here and there. Then it went to a few stretchy bracelets for some friends.That was pretty much the only crafting I did until my sister asked me to make her a headband. That headband started me sewing and making my own style of no slip sport headband.Then she got a dog and of course wanted collars and I made her a few collars.Then along came my dog Sampson (that him in the photo). I loved the collars in the large chain stores , but thought anyone can buy this I wanted something different and not at a crazy price. That's when I really began creating dog collars and leashes.
If I can figure out how to sew it I will try to make it. I guess the need to be on a budget but wanting high end unique items has also created an outlet for my creativity and crafty side. I love seeing an item and thinking I can do that. I have always had a creative side so it's nice to be able to share that with others as well.
