Hi my name is Jo…

Mindfully made started by accident.  I needed something to do in the evenings to combat the anxiety and depression I’ve been battling since my teens.  My therapist had suggested colouring, but, me being me, (far too stubborn to do as I’m told), I decided to rekindle my love of art and start making things.

I started by upcycling a small vintage table my mum had picked up for me from the local charity shop, and after this was transformed, and I felt such a sense of achievement from the end result.

I got the bug for finding unwanted items in charity shops and turning them into something beautiful.

The majority of my pieces are upcycled from charity shop finds, or made from old glass bottles, tins and jars.  Take a look at my shop to find out more.
