Jessica lives on a miniature horse ranch in Bixby, Oklahoma. She enjoys recycling and loves creating handmade items by utilizing materials that she recycles herself. Jessica transforms recycled soup and coffee cans, as well as other tin and steel containers, into original hand-painted upcycled decoupage canisters and tins. She also incorporates recycled magazine clippings and yogi tea tag messages into her lovely, one-of-a-kind creations, which can be found in her Etsy shop "Eco-Friendly Freckles".
Along with her upcycled decoupage art, Jessica also carries vintage magazine prints, exotic herbs, and other fascinating treasures in her Eco-Friendly Freckles shop. When Jessica is not improving her Etsy shop, she is working part-time at Akin's Natural Foods Market where she is continually learning new things about natural health. She is often called the "tea expert" because of her interest and knowledge in herbal teas and tinctures.
Andrea's delightful shop Storybook Artifact is filled with hand-crafted StoryBookmarks, loose leaf tea blends, all-natural storybook-themed cookies, vintage items "artifacts", original drawings, sketches, and paintings...As well as "soon-to-come" personalized storybook portraits on canvas, and "Momma Knows Best" natural remedies and handy secrets.
Andrea is passionate about recycling everything she can! She makes routine trips to her local recycling center. Andrea even utilizes recycled materials in the packaging of her Storybook Artifact shop orders: she uses recycled packaging for her cookie samples as well as this dazzling hand-crafted upcycled confetti that goes into each of her Storybook Artifact shop order packages!
You can view her how-to instructional picture tutorial about how to make this upcycled packaging confetti here.
