I am the unexpected creative force behind the Designer In You Paint & Decorative Products Line. When I married my best friend in 1989 and started looking for ways to make our little apartment look beautiful and inviting on our meager budget, I began mixing paints and products to improve the yard sale finds I purchased. Little did I know that this is when my business was born. Through much trial and error I created “recipes” that eventually turned into formulas for my products. I never dreamed that I would have my own business, and am humbled by the opportunity.
I’m a Texas girl, wife to my soulmate (still my best friend), and mom to three incredibly talented daughters. My degree is in Psychology, which I find that I use every day in surprising ways. Because I love to paint, you can find it somewhere on every article of clothing that I own, many times even on my Labradoodle, Charlie.
Though I now have a manufacturer that makes my paint, I still do make 97% of our products. My customers let me know when there is a product that they love, and I try my best to replicate it and sell it for a reasonable price. There are still a couple of products that have me stumped, but I am confident that I will be able to figure out how to make them in time. I love the challenge, and am constantly dreaming of new products to expand our line.
