About Us

Mums Inc. was founded on the principles of sharing and professional growth within the Homecoming Mum industry. We believe in a supreme standard of design, quality and beauty within our craft. Our primary goal is to bring respect and dignity to the mum profession. Our hope is to bring the mum industry into the 21st century by setting the new standard for mum makers all across Texas.

 

Our organization is comprised of some of the largest and most talented designer mum makers in the state of Texas. Together our membership is comprised years of experience. Mums Inc was founded in 2012 as a Facebook group. We came together to discuss trends and supplies. Over time we developed more than just tips, we have developed a professional community of respect and sharing.

 

The hope in creating Mums Inc. was to unify the Homecoming Industry to not only keep the tradition alive but to bring professionals together to better the industry as well.

Denise Mays

Denise Mays has lived in Wylie for 24 years.  She began making Homecoming mums for her son’s girlfriends when they were in Junior High School, some 14 years ago.  The boy’s friends and moms soon started asking if she would make Homecoming mums for their children…consequently “It’s All About Mums” was started!  The excitement and joy that she receives from making Homecoming mums has caused her to have such passion for the business.  To the point of hoarding anything that glitters!

 

Denise has a BBA in Accounting from Amber University.  She works full time as a CFO for small or family owned businesses.  Her love for volunteering started at the University of North Texas, through her sorority, Pi Beta Phi.  When she became a mom, she continued volunteering through PTA, Booster Clubs and now as Vice President of the Wylie ISD Education Foundation.  Many of her accomplishments were made during the extraordinary growth of her town, assisting/becoming a founding member of the Wylie ISD Council of PTAs and the “many” new school PTAs that she started as President of the Council.  She joined Mums Inc. in her endeavor to assist in bringing esteem and recognition to the art and business of Homecoming Mum design.

 

Her business serves Wylie, Sachse, Garland, Allen, Plano, and surrounding areas, but has shipped to many in other locations.

Misty is a life long crafter. She has owned her own businesses for years

including a quilt store. 2018marks the 8 th year of Mumstrocities by Misty.

It started as a ministry and still is the central focus behind my business. After

years of her daughter begging me to make her a mum she didn't
jump in until she was in her second year of college.  (Yes, she says there is much

guilt felt on her part,however last year she made her an Obscenlyicious Mum for the

funof it and it hangs in herclassroom where she teaches.) This crazy decision to jump

into the mum world came to be because her son's high school sweetheart

deserved the best. She splurged on the mum the year before. She was told me

to pick out anything she wanted on it, and well she did.  When she picked it up,

what she thought was going to be a splurge of $250, ended up being $400.   After much

urging from a friend, she jumped in and gave it a try.  The results are the now a

blooming business.  After the customer saw her first mum, her mom said my work

was good enough and asked her to make her sons garter. 

And so it began...

 

She prays over every mum and garter for the purchaser and the recipient. On the

back of each creation a sticker with a scripture is placed on the back. 2017 was

Lamentations 3:22  “The faithful love of the Lord never ends!  His mercies never cease.”

If I can plant the seed in just one child each year of the love and grace our Lord and Savior

has in store for them, then my job was done.
