Anchors and Feathers, Providing Hope and Bravery for Teens with Depression

When 4 women with strong faith, a loving friendship, and deep connections with the world of depression get together they create Anchors and Feathers! I am honored to have been asked to join forces with 3 other women that have inspiring hearts. Anchors and Feathers provides Boxes of Bravery and Boxes of Hope to teens that are battling depression.

This month at instagram.com/shopkocoandviking we are hosting a fundraising for Anchors and Feathers. The fundraiser will go directly to providing these uplifting boxes of strength to these children of God who so need our love. Please stay tuned as our ministry grows. We invite you to be part of this amazingness!

Despite being a nurse (Jenine) and a social worker (Amanda) by day, we are crafters at heart. Our journey creating handmade crafts began over thirty years ago, when Jenine started a business out of our home. Working from home allowed her to be a stay at home Mom to her three spunky daughters. The entire family spent summer weekends on the road at craft festivals and fairs throughout Minnesota and the surrounding states. Although our products have changed throughout the years, our love of creating things has remained the same. We are inspired by life and enjoy combining textures, fabrics, and colors in a whimsical way. We find great joy in creating art and hope to share our love and wonder with others.

I used to paint on canvas but no one ever saw the paintings unless they came to visit my house. The walls began to overflow with canvas paintings so I needed a new outlet. I researched batik and found a whole other avenue in which to show my work to the world through wearable art!
