Hey there! My name is Christy, I am the owner of Central Texas Spirit Wear. I love Texas, homecoming mums and backpacking!
I began making homecoming mums in 2010 for my sons' homecoming dates. Making mums scratched my creative itch and I learned how badly I'd needed glitter and bows in my life!
While I enjoyed making mums for the girlfriends, I learned that not everyone has the time nor the inclination to make homecoming mums. I took some left-over materials, whipped up three little mums and asked my Facebook friends if anyone wanted a $25 mum. They sold in 15 minutes. The following Spring, I took a huge leap and followed through with applying for a tax resale license and DBA and Central Texas Spirit Wear became an official reality.
2022 will be my 7th year in the homecoming mum business. I continue to develop and perfect my skills as a maker and as a business owner. To say that owning a small business has changed my life, is an understatement. I try to give back to the mum world as a board member of Mums, Inc, a professional organization for homecoming mum makers.
I am here to create the mum of her dreams that will impress everyone and be cherished for years. Feel free to contact me with your questions. Examples of my work can be found here. If you are ready to order, click here. I look forward to working with you!
