JLH Upcycling JLH Upcycling specializes in book page flowers, paper wreaths and sustainable home accents. Perfect for gifts and unique event decor! I'm a web designer by day, and a quirky upcycler by night.

As much as I love programming and designing innovative websites for my clients, I also have the same passion for repurposing old books and preserving antique home decor. Sharing my crafts with the world brings me pure joy, which is why I decided to open JLH Upcycling. Growing up in the 90's, I was a huge fan of Ghost Writer and the Boxcar Children books. As a young girl, I would beg my parents to

Sometimes the best you can do is take pictures in your driveway πŸ˜‚πŸ€·β€β™€οΈ When an old friend asked me to make a yarn ball bouquet for her mama, how could I say no? This was so fun to make 🧢.

Do you know how to crochet? I still can’t figure it out but hope to learn some day! 🀞

My friend Lynne at 3 Girls, Freckles & Curls has been making the cutest masks and accessories! Check them out on Etsy or at Marigold Marketplace & Creative Studio.

4 months ago I never envisioned that I would have made a couple thousand masks, now I find myself accessorizing masks?? What?
Thanks to a few customers who are teachers and the fact that I worked in a school, these new products have come about!

If kids head back to school in the fall....like mittens, masks will get lost. Kids will take them off for lunch, recess, to get a drink from the bubbler .... and heaven forbid they go to the bathroom and it falls in the toilet?!

1. Lanyards for masks
2. Zipper pouches that can attach to backpacks with a spare mask, it also has plastic lining, so if you put a dirty/wet mask in, it won’t leak.
3. Mesh bags for washing masks and keeping them from getting lost in the wash.

These items will be ready for the farmers market, Etsy & shops next weekend!

Today we said goodbye to our little #westallis duplex. 😒 At 100 years old, she was a charmer and I’m still in love with the original hardwoods! I’ll miss hearing the distant church bells while working from home, but I most definitely won’t miss the stairs πŸ˜‚. On to our next chapter of adulting! 🏑

Yesterday I took a trip into #wauwatosa to check out a collection of old books that a man posted for sale online. πŸ“š I ended up visiting with him for over an hour! He shared his story, that his wife had recently passed away and he was selling his house to downsize and start a new chapter. He had hundreds of old books, bibles and articles - some from over 100 years ago. 😍 He also had a collection of old photographs πŸ“·, some of his distant family and some that were so old, he didn’t know where they came from! They were incredible. I’m so thankful for this experience πŸ™‚.
