Jessica lives 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 vintage vinyl records, into original hand-painted upcycled decoupage art pieces. She also incorporates recycled magazine clippings and Yogi brand tea tag messages into her one-of-a-kind collage creations, which can be found in her Etsy shop "Eco-Friendly Freckles".
...and one of Jessica's upcycled vinyl record art pieces is used as the cover art for Jen Karetnick's book of poetry titled Brie Season.
Jessica is seen here in her local Tulsa Magazine Artist in Residence feature that spotlights her upcycled art and her Eco-Friendly Freckles Etsy shop. Along with her upcycled decoupage art, Jessica also carries recycled vintage treasures and ephemera in her Eco-Friendly Freckles shop.
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.
