As this year comes to an end, I'm reflecting on how grateful I am for your support and business. Friends and family have been so encouraging and I know that 2017 will open so many doors for Coverz.
Sales for 2016 were up 380% from 2015 and we were able to donate to the Adam Blakey Holiday Foundation (Ft. Wayne, IN) to help give gifts to underprivileged children in Indiana as well as the C.O.P.S. organization that supports surviving families of fallen police officers.
What should you expect to see Coverz doing in 2017? We have several new children's bedding prints that will expand our line of sheets/pillowcases. Coverz is looking to sell in specialty children's boutiques and also at children's expo's.
Our adult blankets continue to be a best seller, so Coverz will continue to offer these extravagant throw blankets to meet all of your snuggling needs.
My sincerest appreciation for your business this year, your friendship, and most of all ability to give back.
Blessings and Best Wishes in 2017.

Happy Fall Everyone! We are so excited to announce our next donation recipient - the Adam Blakey Holiday Foundation, located in Fort Wayne Indiana.
Here is their bio info:
The Adam Blakey Holiday Foundation was established to provide gifts and/or food to families throughout the state of Indiana. The Foundation accepts donations of food and monetary donations to provide a meaningful holiday experience to families who may otherwise not have these items. The Foundation is a nonprofit organization. 100% of all proceeds received go towards providing the selected families during the holidays. We accept monetary and/or gift card donations. Donations can be made through many ways including postal mail and Paypal. If you would like to nominate a family, please contact the Foundation at firstname.lastname@example.org
Adam started blessing families with gifts around the holidays before starting the foundation, after working in social services and seeing the need right here in Indiana. Families are nominated and then gifts selected, wrapped, and delivered all because of your generosity! In 2015, 21 children received gifts through the foundation!
All of the online sales & events Coverz will be selling at this fall will donate a % of our profits to give children in Indiana a holiday to remember. If you'd like to directly donate to the foundation, you can do that through paypal (email above) or regular mail: PO box 10182 , Fort Wayne Indiana 46851

Coverz reached a milestone in October - we made our first major gifts donation to BlinkNow in Nepal. Your purchases have not only helped children get blankets & bedding, but the women making these items work in the Kopila Valley Women's Center, which empower women to lead better lives.
I can't wait to share follow-up pictures and stories with you on how we've impacted these children's lives. For more information on BlinkNow or how to help, visit their website at www.blinknow.org
Thank you again for your support!
A labor of love!
The arrows fabric has given me the chance to design several color combinations for you!
Teal, Pink, or Neutral!
Neutrals is where this design originated. I fell in love with the "Grazing" wall art ( l ) , by Deann Hebert. Could any other art perfectly mesh tans & greys?! And so it began. The hunt for the perfect fabric was on. The arrows print (a) brought tan, grey, and colors which gave way to all three of these room designs. The grey cuddle blanket (a) is big enough to use as a comforter. Pair with these other room items: b - arrow drawer pulls , c - neutral teepee , d - hanging wire storage , e - arrow wall hanging , f - Honest Crib ( you buy one, they donate one!) , g - hanging basket storage , h - wood & wire storage bench , i - reclaimed wood arrow wall art , j - arrow book ends , k - Feed diaper bag ( you buy one, they donate to women & children) , m - metal coat hook
Teal & Gray accent this design, with: a - sheets & blanket by Coverz , b - arrow drawer pulls , c - grey stripe teepee , d - Honest Crib ( you buy one, they donate one!), e - decorative arrow wall hanging, f - Be Brave wall art , g - wood & wire storage bench , h - Feed diaper bag ( you buy one, they donate to mothers & children) , i - wire storage hanging rack , j - arrow book ends , k - shades of blue arrow wall hanging , l - storage hanging basket , m - metal coat hooks
Pink is my favorite color! Well, at least that's how the song goes. :)
Get this bright, fun, rustic bedroom decor: a - sheets & blanket by Coverz , b - arrow wall hanging , c - arrow drawer pulls , d - pink chevron teepee , e - hanging wire storage , f - Be Brave wall hanging , g - red metal arrow wall decor , h - Honest crib ( you buy one, they donate one!) , i - wood & wire storage bench , j - Feed Diaper Bag ( you buy one, they donate to mothers & children , k - hanging storage basket , l - arrow book ends , m - decorative colorful arrows , n - metal coat hooks
Michelle here, and I’m excited to announce that our first donor recipient will be BlinkNow, an organization serving the community of Surkhet, Nepal. With a children’s home, school, health clinic, and women’s center - BlinkNow strives to impact lives in Nepal for the better. They believe, “... that in the blink of an eye, we can all make a difference."
A quick overview of BlinkNow:
While on a backpacking trip traveling the world, founder Maggie Doyne met children on the dirt roads in the Himalayas struggling to survive. With her life savings, she bought land in Nepal and built Kopila Valley Children’s Home, which now houses 50 children!
Next came the Kopila Valley School which serves over 350 students, most of which are the first to attend school in their family! The Kopila Valley Women’s Center also educates, trains, and supports local women. A storefront allows the women to sell handmade items. The Kopila Valley Health Clinic gives children annual physicals, access to dental care, and immunizations - among other wrap around services to keep the women and children healthy.
With a donation from Coverz, not only will those 50 children have a new blanket to keep them warm at night, but most of the items can also be made right in Nepal by the talented women in the Kopila Valley Women’s Center, creating jobs and stimulating the local economy.
You can make a difference for these children in Nepal through your purchases at Coverz. Visit our online store at www.cover.us

Set sail on the open seas with this Viking Sea bedroom design. Coverz sheets and blanket (a) set the scene for this nautical adventure. Viking room accessories are the perfect accents. A dark brown sleigh bed crib (e) converts to a ship-esque toddler bed once those babies are walking the plank. Your little viking will look the part with this handmade viking hat (d).
