MACY MAE® officially became a company September, 2018 but the time spent in building and creating started long before. After the birth of our 3rd child, a girl, followed up from 2 boys, I began to think more about when I was younger. My cousins and I always played with our dollhouse Grandpa handmade. Moving furniture around, coloring walls with nail polish and can’t forget, the shag carpet! We talked about how many kids we would have someday, our own house and cars we’d have and how we couldn’t wait to grow up. While those dreamy moments truly may be few and far between in the midst of laundry and teary eyed tantrums, they’re the very moments that make all the other moments seem so small.
Our lives are forever rocked when we bring children into this world. Fixer Upper quickly became my go to show and therapy after birth of our 4th child, another boy, in October, 2017. I began searching for that perfect dollhouse I remember having when I was young and wanted to give our daughter just that for Christmas. It was no where to be found. I stumbled upon many other talented miniature makers but none of them could customize and have delivered by Christmas. So… I decided to buy a used one and do a little Fixer Upper myself. It became a way of relieving the pressures of life with 4 very young children and actually quite calming.
