The story of Simply Inspired

We are incredibly humbled you are choosing to support our family owned business by shopping simplyinspiredco.com. It doesn’t seem quite possible this venture that began as a way to stay home with our two boys has evolved into the creative endeavor we call Simply Inspired. We are beyond grateful for the opportunity this journey has brought to our family.

After our second son was born in 2014, we aspired to find a career in which we could work from home and maximize time spent with our young sons. With Mike’s background in architecture and my background in interior design and business, we decided to try our hand at home decor. We began by hand painting wood picture frames and signs for local customers in the Springfield, Missouri area. It wasn’t long before we started to receive custom orders for signs and other decor, soon after adding painted barnwood porch signs to our product list. As our business gained momentum, the two of us began to have visions and dreams of what Simply Inspired could become. In early 2015 we stepped out in faith and opened our Etsy shop with only a handful of products. Within a year, we were designing barnwood decor with metal word accents, a few months later releasing two and three foot metal words, and as they say, the rest is history.

Currently, we have over two hundred products that are designed and handmade by our Simply Inspired team right here in the Ozarks and shipped worldwide. We consider it a great privilege to do what we do, and to have our products in the homes of our faithful customers. We strive to craft a life that lives simply and lives inspired, and we hope you will join us as we welcome what lies ahead.

Until next time,

Patti
