new arrivals at uncovered artistry nonprofit boutique

I’ve got some excellent news! Uncovered Artistry— the nonprofit I founded with my sister five years ago that sells the work of domestic abuse survivors– has NEW ARRIVALS! They’re a while in the making, but I am so proud of the new styles we have up. Our products– all handmade items– are made by domestic abuse survivors… with the exception of these newest additions.

The new arrivals were actually made by volunteers at various events the Uncovered Artistry Project has hosted throughout the years. Participants made the designs using new and recycled jewelry pieces and graciously donated them to the online boutique. And now, I am very happy to say that many of them are up for sale online.

And keep your eye out…there’s more on the way, too!

So what is the Uncovered Artistry Project and boutique?

It started with a simple equation. 

Art + Entrepreneurship = Empowerment. Add a couple business-savvy ladies and a serendipitous grant from Projects for Peace, and you’ve got yourself Uncovered Artistry Boutique. We’re a little shop built on the belief that business fosters empowerment in all its flavors (financial, personal, emotional, et al.). Our little piece of this cyber world sells the creative work of domestic and sexual abuse survivors, individuals who, more than most, benefit from the uplifting effects of art and business. Our roots are planted deep in Midwest soil, yet our reach extends to all those with an Internet connection and a penchant for joyful shopping. Shop the boutique today.

I Want to Make Stuff

And that’s exactly what I’m going to do. I’m dedicating this weekend to only four main things: go on a 12 mile run, explore a new local brewery, go to church, and CRAFT. The crafting is going to be part spring cleaning, part sewing/painting/building, and it’s about time I got to it! There is a whole list of projects I’ve been meaning to do, and now I’m finally going to make time for them.

I’m sharing this with you all not just for your reading pleasure…but also because I hope you all hold me accountable. I better come out of this weekend with some great photos of my finished projects to share with you all!

Here’s the plan (more or less):
