Mama Monday | MereDee Designs | November 2016

Mama Monday is quickly becoming my favorite feature on the blog each week, and it's because I get to share amazing local mom bosses with you and every week I'm reminded on how supportive our Columbus community is because you all tell me how much you love these mamas. 

This week is especially exciting because I'm sharing with you one of my all time favorite Mom Bosses.  I met Meredith at an Ohio Creative Collective event during the summer of 2015 and as she introduced herself and her business to the group I couldn't help but notice her bubbly personality that just took over the room.  Meredith has a heart full of unlimited love that she shares with everyone she meets.  You can't help but feel happy and inspired after an iteration with Meredith.  Meredith and her husband Drue live in Dublin with their kids Addison and Nolan.  With two active kids and a wonderful business of her own she is a very busy woman - somehow she manages to squeeze in time to teach dance classes at REFIT.  

Most days when my little guy is off to kindergarten you can find me behind the sewing machine or at the post office mailing out some MereDee goodies! It’s more than likely I’ll have on a headband or an Ohio hat, so if you see me out and about, make sure to say hi!

MereDee Designs is an online boutique that offers a full line of handmade accessories, jewelry, and home decor, made right here in Columbus, OH with love from Meredith herself.   Some of her featured products this holiday season include adorable patch work hats, flannel scarves, infinity scarves, beanies, nursing wraps, headbands, and necklaces.  I feel like everyday I am seeing a new product or new design on her Instagram page, and I swear I want to buy it all.  So my dear sweet husband you is probably reading this - any of Meredith's products would be great for Holiday gifts.  I especially love the Be A Light Beanie, all of the scarves, the infinity nursing wrap, the floppy hat and the Dash Pendant - so basically her full line.  :) 

MereDee Designs was born three and a half years ago when she had a friend that gave her some fabric and told her to "make something crafty with it."  She made a statement piece and headed to a clothing swap hosted by another friend, once word got out that she handmade these pieces others started to request items of their own and from there she's grown into what we now know as MereDee Designs.  The name "MereDee" comes from her Grandpa Mike who used to call Meredith, MereDee, and when she was naming her business she felt like it was only fitting to honor such a unique nickname.    Seriously, how amazing is that?  I love that story so much.
