Her Story

Missy Patterson, Founder and Creative Director of Simply Grateful


A note from our Founder and Creative Director:

I wanted to create my own personal thank you cards uniting what I love with how I connect to people, places and moments.   I did this by bringing traveling, images of life and nature,  conscious connection,  and gratitude together in photos.   However,  I realized that combining this passion into something tangible resulted in paper cards that I would throw into shoeboxes or eventually recycle.   Therefore my intention grew into creating a card that was unique,  but also re-useable with the ability to last forever,  eliminating waste.

 There is magic in receiving a wooden postcard in the mail.   Wood cards with beautiful imagery on the front and a heartfelt message on the back are a more solid object for someone to keep and display with pride rather than toss away.   Making connection truly simple.

As my idea and company expanded,  I found that the art-work being re-usable was a notion that seemed to flourish within me to create coasters, ornaments, wine charms, puzzles, serving trays... mini-works of art that invoke feeling and moments that can be re-used daily!   I want you all to be able to share the same feeling of creating,  so I encourage you to customize and personalize your own postcards and coasters too...  create your own story.

We are honored to be collaborating with beautiful artists in different cities and towns across the country that brilliantly capture their own voice and insight,  and inspire us.   However you choose to use them...  for gratitude and connection,  for inspiration,  as a coaster,  a tray,  or displayed as artwork,  please know that every piece is made with pure joy and that we all are simply grateful to be able to share them with you!
