Venice Williams (not the tennis player)
Howdy! I am Venice, creator and owner of Mari-Mac Designs. I come from a long line of women who sew, and my fire to create was fueled by my husband's anniversary gift... you guessed it, a sewing machine! This brought back fond memories of when I was young and watched in awe of my mom and aunt making unbelievable quilts and dresses. I not only witnessed their love for sewing, but the immense pride that came with gifting their handmade labors of love. My passion to please others is just as strong as my need to be creative. I hope that shows in our products. It is important that I not only make our products practical but beautiful.
I worked nights as a respiratory therapist for seven years. After the birth of my second daughter, our family decided it was a healthier choice for me to stay at home. Our lack of extra income led to a lot of handmade presents and quickly turned into a platform to create fashionable and functional products. Everything we make has been inspired by my two daughters and our daily adventures.
I was born and raised in Lufkin, Texas and currently reside in The Woodlands, Texas with my husband, Ryan, and two daughters, Mia and Madelyn. We enjoy everything outdoors, from fishing to listening to outdoor concerts.We love the Texas heat and the hospitality that our state is known for. We do not answer emails on weekends and will always hold the door for ya. We are family owned and operated. The girls not only inspire the products, they also enjoy decorating your packages! Our customers are our friends, and good friends are like family. We look forward to becoming your good friend.
