    Jenny Beasley

    Founder - President


    Jenny -Jypsi Bea has been an active crafter for most of her life. Through out her life she has worked in various positions that helped her develop her skills and desire to start a non-profit that would inspire creativity in others because it was just that helped her walk through life.


    She loves exploring different creative methods, finding ways to give life to items that seeming have lost their purpose and loves to restore their beauty.


    The Impact Project was created due to the fact it was costing Teachers to use their personal funds to be able to teach in public schools. Building a mindfield instead of the landfill was a passion that turned into a mission.


    She believes that there is an Artist in Everyone and works to encourage others to give it a try. The outcome is not what is important it is all about the journey.

    Krissy Neely

    Business Consultant



    Krissy Neely was born and raised in Texas but took to the roads as soon as she graduated high school. Her adventures lead her to Canada where she build a career in art and food that culminated in the owning of her beloved community cafe, The Daily Grind. For four years, The Daily Grind served downtown Ottawa, Canada with made-from-scratch food and drink, live music and art and a warm, welcoming community-oriented vibe. A week after it's 4th anniversary, The Daily Grind suffered a fatal roofing fire and burned to the ground in a day!

    The road beckoned Krissy back into it's embrace and she headed to California where she opened a beach snack stand and her second cafe, The Big House. Currently, Krissy has found herself back in the great state of Texas where it is time to bring something to life again!
