Read on to learn about an organization that's making it easy with a resource that helps to connect volunteers with causes that align well with their values and passions.

You’ve decided you want to volunteer and give back to the community. What’s the next step? That’s where Cincinnati Cares can help.

“Cincinnati Cares is an organization and a technology platform that hosts a free community-wide volunteer guide that is now our region’s most popular way for volunteers to find their way to help,” says Douglas Bolton, President and CEO. “This service is free to volunteers and the more than 500 nonprofits, whose volunteer opportunities are kept updated through beautiful technology that is frictionless, password free and mobile friendly. The platform is the first project of a two-year-old 501(c)(3) called Inspiring Service.”

The nonprofit is located at 1776 Mentor Avenue, Norwood, Ohio, in the HCDC Business Incubator and was launched in late 2017. “The inspiration behind Cincinnati Cares came from a concern for the health of people in our region. Craig Young founded Inspiring Service out of concern for the health of our regions and our nation’s volunteer ecosystem,” Bolton explains. “Volunteerism has been in decline nationally and has declined in Greater Cincinnati at a twice the national rate. A technology entrepreneur who sold his companies in the late 1990s and has been engaged in philanthropy and volunteerism for the past two decades, Craig is building an organization that, through programming and technology, will help reverse decades of disinvestment in the volunteer ecosystem.”

Bolton partnered with Young last year, as a consultant, in order to help establish the platform and set the strategy and became the CEO of Cincinnati Cares at the beginning of 2019. “Craig is chair of our board and continues to focus on our technology, as well as Inspiring Service’s work outside Greater Cincinnati,” he explains. “Communities from coast to coast have noticed what we are doing and have asked us to export our technology to them.”

According to Bolton, the mission of Cincinnati Cares is “to inspire and empower people and organizations to engage in volunteering that improves and strengthens their community and themselves.”

The organization defines success by helping individuals to “find their way to help, working with businesses to improve their community engagement and strengthening the nonprofit sector’s engagement of volunteers,” he says. “We hope to reverse the declines in volunteerism rates and we believe we are already contributing to that.”

Cincinnati Cares is a unique organization. It’s “the only 100 percent volunteer-focused organization in the Greater Cincinnati region,” Bolton says, adding that he wants people to know that the organization is an “innovative technology and organization that inspires and empowers greater Cincinnati to engage in volunteering that helps our  community and themselves.”

Bolton loves the culture of Cincinnati Cares. It is “a startup created by one of Greater Cincinnati’s most generous families with dedicated employees and volunteers who are committed to the mission of fixing some of our region’s most pressing community needs by making it easier and better for volunteers to get engaged,” he says.

A fourth-generation family business makes cold-processed goats milk bath and body products. Learn more about the local farm and their upcoming event for a peek inside!

Becky Jones and her sister Martha Enriquez know what it takes to run a business. After all they are part of a 4th-generation family farm in Batavia called Pine Lane Farm, also home to Pine Lane Soaps.

“We make cold-processed goats milk soap, lotions, lip balms, shaving soaps, and related items,” says Jones.

The farm has been in the family since 1959, where they’ve raised hogs, horses, cattle, sheep, poultry, and dairy goats.

The soaps created by Pine Lane are made from scratch using milk from the goats raised on the farm. “We love creating a natural product made ‘from scratch’ using milk from our goats in our 150+ year old farmhouse,” adds Jones.

The two sisters create the soaps alongside their mother, Patty Fix. Together, the three of them have a long history in caring for farm animals, including goats.

The soap made from goats’ milk is about 5 ounces per bar and comes in several scents including lavender, lemongrass, honeysuckles, and more.

“Both essential oils and fragrance oils are used for scents,” says Jones. “We also make goat milk lotion, shaving soap, lip balm, shampoo bars, and puppy suds. The soaps have no detergents, preservatives, or sudsing agents.”

Although their focus is on soaps, Jones emphasizes that Pine Lane Soaps is not just a soap company.

“All of the women behind it have a background in Education and love sharing our agricultural business with the community,” says Jones. “Partnerships  with Look to Clermont Leadership, Clermont County Extension Service, Uzima Outreach and many others have enabled hundreds of families to get an opportunity to visit the farm.  We use top quality oils in our soaps and offer them in the Greater Cincinnati area at a fair price. Profits from soap sales goes strictly to maintain the dairy goat herd and provide occasional improvements.”

Jones says the family is looking forward to the start of their 10th season with the Montgomery Farmers Market this spring, as well as a few fall holiday craft shows. Pine Lane Soaps products are available at retail locations throughout Greater Cincinnati.

You can learn more about Pine Lane Soaps at www.pinelanesoaps.com or follow along on Facebook. Jones adds that Pine Lane Farm is hosting an open house/farm visit on June 22. To learn more about the event, call 513-260-4352.

See how this Cincinnati-based fashion designer is making her mark around the world one handmade piece of art at a time.

For a little over a decade, Tara L. Smith has been crafting unique jewelry creationsTara received her B.S. in Art Education with an academic minor in Art History from Miami University in 2009. While her full-time job is an art teacher at a local Cincinnati high school, her passion for fashion shines bright through her one-of-a-kind Etsy shop. 

“I love the fact I am able to still be an artist and make some extra income by selling my work while working full time as an art teacher also,” says Smith on her Etsy page.

The pieces initially started selling through various pop-up shops, and then launching an Etsy Shop was the next step to build the business Smith and her team quickly found that e-commerce dramatically increased exposure and clienteleTo date, Smith’s pieces have been shipped to more than seven countries, including Dubai, United Kingdom, Germany and even Japan. 

“All of the pieces have so many layers. They have a simplistic look, but each piece has personality and bursts with color and boldness. The pieces do not come from inventory, they come from the customer’s stories, Tara’s mood, and pure wonder. They are each handmade 100%, that is 70% creativity and 30% custom.” says Leah Michelle, fashion stylist and owner of FashionYellow LLC., “Her biggest inspiration comes from her grandmother, who originally inspired Tara to start making jewelry. She loves vintage jewelry and art, so she combines an ‘old soul’ feel in each of her modern and high-end creations.”

Since each creation is handmade, the materials are gathered from local boutiques, thrift stores, online ordering and through global personal connections. Depending on the type and specifics of the piece, customers spend between $75-$500 on an order. “Some pieces are on the lower scale and some are custom, handmade route. It is a great range for anyone to shop in,” says Michelle

To reach an even broader audience, Smith and her team have utilized both photoshoots and social media to their advantage. “We have a lot of free giveaways on the website and across our social media pages. Our followers tag their friends and have them follow our account for a chance to win. We have found an increase in traffic and customers lately,” says Michelle. 

To enhance the image of the brand, Smith and Michelle directed a photoshoot that incorporated all things athletic and chic, the theme for the new spring line of jewelry. “Each look was personally pulled together by me. I mixed Tara’s athletic pieces with womenswear and shoes to highlight her passion for fitness and fashion. We formed the looks around the necklaces to make the concept cohesive and creative. We wanted a mix of bold, bright necklaces and also soft pastels with deep undertones,” says Michelle. 

Both Smith and Michelle have been pursuing their passions in both the fashion and business industries for a combined total of 10+ years.

For nearly a decade, this local market has been bringing together indie crafters, designers, artists, DIYers, and other creatives. See how you can get insider info on their next event!

Cincy Chic: What is Crafty Supermarket?
Chris Salley-Davis, Founder of Crafty Supermarket: Crafty Supermarket is Cincinnati’s oldest indie craft fair featuring regional makers from Ohio, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan and beyond. We focus on makers who identify as indie crafters, designers, artists, DIYers and other unconventional makers creating original handmade goods.

Cincy Chic: What’s the inspiration behind it?

Salley-Davis: The idea of Crafty Supermarket was hatched nearly ten years ago after seeing other cities with active indie craft and maker scenes. Cincinnati seemed to have a lot of makers but they were not networking in Cincinnati. Big indie craft shows like Renegade Handmade were starting to pop up in cities like NY, San Francisco and Chicago. After touring around the country my musician husband, I wanted to bring makers together in my backyard so I started hatching a store concept that later became Fabricate (now closed) and dreaming of an annual fair.

Cincy Chic: Who’s behind it?

Salley-Davis: I started a maker night called BYOProject to try to find makers in Cincinnati. This is how I came across Alisha Budkie and Grace Dobush who were also thinking about starting an indie craft fair. They were a little further down the indie craft fair path since I was focusing on my shop but we merged forces initially ran Crafty Supermarket together. Budkie left in 2011 to start Rock, Paper, Scissors which later became Indigo Hippo. Grace Dobush left in 2016 when she moved to Germany to work as a freelance writer. We all still stay in touch.

Cincy Chic: When did it launch?
Salley-Davis: Crafty Supermarket launched in November 2009 with just 20 makers at the Northside Tavern.

Cincy Chic: What makes this event unique?
Salley-Davis: There are a lot of great indie maker events around the city like City Flea, Art on Vine, the Off Market and more. We were the first. I’m so glad makers have so many opportunities to reach customers through these events that have grown over the years. I think Fabricate and Crafty Supermarket helped make this scene happen. I don’t think we can take all the credit for sure but I’ve had so many makers tell me that we started their career and made them feel like their dreams of being an artist was possible beyond the traditional gallery or designer track. We focus on makers and strive to give new artists a chance to vend each show, saving plenty of spots for our Cincinnati favorites while bringing a variety of regional makers to our awesome city.

Cincy Chic: Where can readers go to learn more and follow along?
Salley-Davis: Our most recent event was May 11 at Music Hall. Next up is the holiday Crafty Supermarket event. For daily maker teasers, follow us on Instagram and find our event on FB, our website also has a full vendor list.

A locally owned coworking space just announced its second expansion and other major benefits (pssst that’s a hint).

1628’s Founder and CEO, Tamara Schwarting

Co-working is the office of the future and 1628 Ltd. wants to offer its clients the amenities of a modern office space combined with the backdrop of an inspirational art gallery.

“Our goal is to remove the chaos from the day so members can focus on their work,” explains Founder and CEO Tamara Schwarting. “1628 offers daily, weekly, and monthly passes for individuals who need coworking flexibility, without a long-term commitment.”

There are multiple core offerings from 1628, which include:

●      Private offices, dedicated desks, and communal coworking for individuals and teams

●      Daily, weekly, and monthly access to our coworking space with no long-term commitment

●      6,000 sq/ft available private events and business meetings.  With 8 conference rooms and 2 large-scale rooms with open floor plans, 1628 can accommodate groups of all sizes from 2 to 200.

Here’s an idea of who might be interested in working at 1628:

●      Independent workers and entrepreneurs without a HQ or home office

●      Fortune 100 & 500 companies looking to establish a presence in Cincinnati with the flexibility to scale operations before committing to commercial real estate lease

●      Vendors or clients of companies who need access to a business center to stay productive while in Cincinnati for business

●      Individuals traveling to Cincinnati for business or leisure during the work week who need to plug-in and stay connected

●      Anyone who needs an office oasis to provide inspiration to bring big ideas to life

 

Schwarting was inspired to launch 1628 Ltd. following a 15-year career at P&G when she opened her own consulting firm. It was then that she quickly learned that there were very few options available to meet with clients, and coffee shops and other public places aren’t always the best place to do business.

 

“I was familiar with coworking from the East coast, but very few options existed in Cincinnati,” she says. “After doing market research, I decided to open a coworking space that would meet my needs and other independent professionals in a similar situation.”

 

The concept behind 1628 Ltd. began in late 2015 before 1628 Ltd. was formed 9 months later, and then opened for business in late 2016.

 

Since it first opened back in 2016, 1628 Ltd. has already expanded twice, with this second expansion expected to be completed in late summer.

 

The new office is located at 11 Garfield Place in the historic Doctor’s building. 1628 Ltd. currently occupies 13,000 square feet of space on the first and second floors, with the expansion moving up to the third floor.

 

Schwarting says that the expansion is about more than just offering new space for clients.

 

“Where you work should work for you and at 1628, we strive to make sure we’re putting our members and guests first as we continue to evolve and meet the needs of a modern workforce,” she says. “We’ll bring the same visual aesthetic to our newest expansion – think posh boutique hotel with all the amenities you expect in a modern office.”

Once the expansion is complete, 1628 Ltd. will offer 25,000 square feet of coworking space. “In addition to this, we just announced this week that we’ll be expanding our members’ services to offer HR benefits through TriNet,” says Schwarting. “The benefits available through this partnership are typically only offered at Fortune 500 companies. We’re excited to bring healthcare and HR benefits to our members, especially as access to quality HR benefits are not often available to small businesses due to cost.”

Our life coach columnist offers insight on a recent Brene Brown book, the concept of belonging, and how sharing art can transform people.

Photographer: Lauren Pusateri

Brene Brown’s book Braving the Wilderness: The Quest for True Belonging” she shares: “Art has the power to share experiences and transform despair into hope... and art has the power to transform something or someone when it is shared. When people share art, it becomes a whisper to that person: “You’re not alone.”

 

What does this mean for you?

I share this with you because I want to challenge you to look in the past to those things that you enjoyed doing when you were younger that involved a form of art that you no longer do. Then visualize yourself doing the activity and see how the passion or desire may still live within. 

Does it light you up to recall this time and place?

As a young girl, my passion for the arts included painting, photography, calligraphy and playing the piano.

I would watch endless hours of Bob Ross on PBS creating those amazing landscapes, I was the pianist at many recitals, choirs, and weddings, taking pictures endlessly, and writing poems in calligraphy.

When I read Brene’s book, the connection to belong resonated in a way that I didn’t realize.  The power and impact of being able to perform through an art is truly a sense of belonging. I haven’t considered my artistic pastimes in a long time and was intrigued about the rediscovery of my gifts after reading the book.

During my personal work around self-care I started to recall those things that brought me joy and realized I had stopped all those artistic pastimes.

I reactivated my gifts by attending a few local painting classes, pulled out music books and began to tickle the ivories, photographed some amazing sunsets and wrote a poem in calligraphy.

The magic in revisiting these simple tasks, of something I once did endlessly, is now transforming me back to a younger version of myself.

Now I ask — Why did you stop?

Is it that you just didn’t have time? Is it just not as exciting? Maybe you don’t believe you’d like to do it anymore.

From my experience, if you allow those passion for art to resurface, you begin to align your heart with something only you knew to bring you pure joy and happiness.  As Brene says it “art has the power to transform something or someone.”

Self-care can transform you in many ways by resetting your mind, raising your vibration, enhancing your mental attitude, and just simply offering pure joy and happiness.  

Give yourself permission to find things that bring you the same feeling you had when you were younger. This feeling is never lost, just quitted and fads over time, but when you can allow it to rise again, you will discover how passionate you are and the love you hold through art and know “you’re not alone.”

While the cast is something to cheer about, does this film squander its talented stars on a clichéd comedy that disrespects the demographic it's trying to celebrate? See what our critic has to say.

“All right ladies … Let’s get to the climatic inspiring dance number or we don’t have a movie!” Martha (Diane Keaton, center in the “M”) leads her fellow retirement community friends in a dance routine in a scene from POMS. Credit: Kyle Bono Kaplan © 2019 STX Financing, LLC. All rights reserved.


WATCH THE TRAILER(S) HERE:



 

 

 




KEY CAST MEMBERS: Diane Keaton, Jacki Weaver, Pam Grier, Alisha Boe, Phyllis Somerville, Charlie Tahan, Bruce McGill, Celia Weston and Rhea Perlman 


DIRECTOR(S): Zara Hayes
 
THE BACK STORY: Martha (Diane Keaton) is a woman coming to grips with her own mortality, which, given her health, makes sense. It’s also why after conducting an estate sale, she’s heading to a seemingly idyllic Sun Springs retirement community in Georgia to spend her final days in peace and quiet.


Then she meets her neighbor Sheryl (Jacki Weaver) and realizes that’s not going to happen.


Forging an unexpected friendship with Sheryl, Martha comes up with an idea – since she’s required to join or create one by her new community’s bylaws – to form a cheerleading club. This leads to Ruby (Carol Sutton), Olive (Pam Grier), Alice (Rhea Perlman), Phyllis (Patricia French), Evelyn (Ginny McCool) and Helen (Phyllis Somerville) joining their aspiring – or is that perspiring? – team, even if it is to the disdain of community activities leader Vicki (Celia Watson). And if Vicki has to pull out Chief Carl (Bruce McGill) to get her way, she will in a heartbeat. 


But after a video of Martha’s makeshift squad goes viral, they are faced with a choice: Give up on their dreams or prove that you’re never too old to show your spirit.
THE REVIEW: Poms isn’t a good movie, per se; it’s a sweet movie with a good heart and a few chuckles along the way. At 91 minutes, it’s short enough to sit through without feeling a strong urge to leave the theater, but it’s nothing you’re going to revel in. It’s nowhere near raunchy by any means to steer into ribald comedy territory, but it has enough anatomy related jokes that will be dirty enough for anyone who regularly dines at an Old Country Buffet or Cracker Barrel. Likewise, the movie’s pacing and story feels like a mix of a too tame for The Golden Girls but too hardcore for Lifetime or CBS, which, given all the sadness it shows in regards to getting older before attempting to salvage a genuinely uplifting, “nice” finale, Poms doesn’t seem to have a specific enough focus to make you feel the way you should.Then again, Poms isn’t really for anyone under the senior circuit – and that’s not a bad thing. It’s perfect palatable celluloid for daughters to take their mothers to or for seniors to enjoy as the characters (especially Weaver as the film’s resident sexpot/free spirit) are exactly like the members of your mom’s bridge or book club that may or may not exist. Poms isn’t trying to re-invent the wheel; it’s just putting a fresh batch of grease on the wheel to give it one last ride.

Weaver steals the show in Poms; Keaton is more or less the straight woman who serves to keep the movie moving forward. Her character mopes, suffers through bouts of vomiting and feels like she’s just a lady you feel sad for and sad to be around for the first half of the film; problem is, once things get going, you don’t care about her as much as you do how she will get the rest of her squad going as they are inherently more interesting … Even though your interest may never peak with a paint-by-numbers script saved only by the cast’s genuine enthusiasm for each other’s company. Alisha Boe and Charlie Tahan add some youthful exuberance to as Martha’s high school cheerleader rival turned coach and Sheryl’s awkward grandson add some much needed youthful exuberance (to the somewhat stale script, NOT the cast), but only in the way a grandparent is proud of them graduating high school.

And ultimately, that’s the main thing that hinders Poms: Instead of going for its full potential with a game-changing break from the routine, it gives you a safe one sure to please audiences who enjoy a nice, simple one they are used to. Poms will occasionally rub your funny bone, but you definitely won’t fall over laughing and will be able to get up and leave the theater easily once it’s done.

OVERALL RATING (OUT OF FOUR POSSIBLE BUCKETS OF POPCORN):

    See how this mama turned her pipe dream into a new roving boutique that gives the community something new and unique while giving her the work-life balance she craves -- one handmade accessory at a time.

    Megan Fenno is making her dream come true with her new mobile boutique featuring handmade jewelry. The Fenno Fashion Roaming Boutique is a boutique on wheels, and the first of its kind in the Cincinnati area.

    “What I love about the truck is that it’s opened up a lot of new opportunities for the business,” she says. “Including the ability to bring it to private parties and to summer markets and pop-up events without the worry of bad weather damaging the jewelry and tags.”

    While she launched Fenno Fashion over a decade ago, after becoming a mom and battling health issues, Fenno decided to launch the boutique truck concept after spending years in the media industry.

    “While I enjoyed my time working in the field, I couldn’t shake the idea of running Fenno Fashion full-time,” she says. “While it was a side business for over a decade, I felt in my heart it was time to take it to the next level.”

    And take it to the next level she did. Fenno hired a business coach, who also happens to be the owner of the first fashion truck in the United States, and one of the requirements was that Fenno read her book which discussed operating a business in different facets, including a mobile business.

    “While I never had really considered going mobile, I thought the concept was something that could really work for my business, while also helping me take it to the next level,” she says.

    Fenno says she drove down to Nashville and picked up an old 1998 plumbing truck that was partially built out to be a mobile clothing boutique. It was a truck she didn’t want to give up on, though, because she saw so much potential in it.

    “It was the perfect size, had a window, sliding French doors, low mileage, and detailed records of its maintenance,” she says.

    Something that was once a vision was becoming reality for Fenno, and people are loving it, too.

    “Just from experience so far, people are really fascinated with the business model and concept, which draws them in to want to see what it’s all about,” she adds.

    The history of Fenno Fashion dates back to 2007 when she launched her own business following her graduation from the Savannah College of Art & Design.

    “It’s evolved a lot over the years, but one thing that’s never changed is my passion for designing jewelry,” she says.

    FENNOfashion sells handcrafted jewelry made by owner Megan Fenno.

    With the help of her husband, the two have put in over 500 hours renovating the truck before they finally stopped counting.

    “John, my husband, also designed the vinyl wrap for the exterior of the truck and designed and modeled out the inside of it so we’d know exactly what it’d look like before we even took our first trip to the hardware store,” she says.

    Fenno also gets help from her parents at events, and friends who help out with everything from social media to putting stickers with the Fenno Fashion logo on thousands of boxes.

    The Fenno Fashion Roaming Boutique isn’t like anything else you’ll find in Cincinnati. “I said from the beginning since no one else is doing this – it’s either a really great idea and/or a really bad idea,” she says. “So far it’s been great, but surely keeps me busy since I also have to create everything that goes inside of the truck.”

    Inside the truck, you’ll find statement necklaces, longer pendant necklaces, dainty pendant necklaces, dangly earrings, stud earrings, bracelets, and bangles.

    “Also, because I work a lot on custom orders, I have examples of some of my more popular custom pieces – such as Remembrance Jewelry and the Momma Bird necklaces I create,” she adds.

    You can also find all of the Jewelry from Fenno Fashion online at fennofashion.com. Fenno says that those interested in learning more about Remembrance Jewelry and Momma Bird necklace online.

    Everything from Fenno Fashion is under $70. Stud Earrings are usually between $14.50 to $16.50. The dainty necklaces range from $26.50 to $28.50, and the most expensive items are statement necklaces and custom pieces.

    You can also order, but not purchase in the truck a Remembrance Rosary for $68.50.

    Fenno says that she’s excited about the future of the truck, which includes participating in the upcoming Barre on the Bridge with Pure Barre as well as several fundraisers. Those fundraisers will include giving back part of her proceeds to the organization in which the fundraiser is benefitting.

    She’s also planning the future of her jewelry designs. “I’m always trying to stretch and learn,” she says. “I just purchased an engraver so I can start engraving metal, which is something I’ve always wanted to offer. Moms love jewelry with their children’s names on it!”

    To learn more about Fenno Fashion, visit fennofashion.com. There you can find all of the information you need from shopping for new designs to information on how to place a custom order as well as a calendar with all of the truck’s upcoming events.
