UPLIFT ARTISAN OF THE DAY: Jen Lee & ‘Indie Kindred’

Imagine an old theater full of makers/artists/creatives/supercool women watching a documentary premiere about makers/artists/creatives/supercool women. Last summer, while in Portland for WDS (World Domination Summit), I sat in that very room, while Indie Kindred rolled on the big screen. Jen Lee beautifully expressed what I (and so many others) feel. Watch the trailer and see what […]

These are people who swim super far into the depths without tanks, just holding their breath for what seems an eternity. So, when I saw these underwater photos by Benjamin Von Wong (the models are trained […]

UPLIFT ARTISAN OF THE DAY: Kari Chapin

I’m not a techie person. I’m not into being glued to the TV or computer a lot. I’m more of a Laura Ingalls type of gal who loves books and wishes she could time travel. BUT, I have learned to love what the online world has done for me. Because of UPLIFT ARTISAN, the online […]

UPLIFT ARTISAN OF THE DAY: Rachel Faucett of ‘Handmade Charlotte’
