OUR STORY

20180505_161639

Welcome to our little creative studio where an idea is always blooming~

Do you ever go to the store and look at hundreds and hundreds of cards and still can’t find one that you want?! It has the perfect cover but the words inside are not what you want to say or vice versa?? Me, too!

This is why I began dreaming this venture quite a few years ago but, as a fulltime educator and the second half of my career in Administration, there seemed to be little time for creativity. Then, life took another spin.

In June of 2017, a colleague & friend died by suicide. That, along with other things made me realize that life was too short! The following summer, I retired, and I haven’t looked back.

It didn’t take long before that passion to create art came back. I started to play around with designs for cards, gift packaging, home décor & gifts . It was then I knew I needed to take the leap into making this dream a reality once and for all.

So, the work began and Simply With Love was born at the end of December 2020. The name comes from the passion I have for creating joyful pieces of art for others to share with friends and family, in the hope that everyone can experience the comfort of simple peace and know they are loved.

It is here that I share my art with you and it is my hope that you find a piece to share with someone you love.

It is my mission & commitment to help eradicate brain/mental illnesses, therefore a portion of my sales are donated to a nonprofit organization, “I Understand”. They offer compassionate comfort and understanding to those affected by suicide and brain/mental illnesses. You can visit their website for more information at http://www.iunderstandloveheals.org.

On our Giving Back page you will find information about other organizations that, as we grow in presence and sales, we will expand our gifts back to those whose mission aligns with ours in helping others.

Hearts & Love,
