I am really excited to announce a partnership that has been brewing for a while now–and it’s all about upcycling–so it takes me back to my roots in a way: The first thing I remember making as a kid were scrunchies for my afro. Me and my sister made the scrunchies from torn clothes and used the elastic waistbands from old panties–seriously. (Luckily) my upcycling skills have come a long way in the last 25 or so years, I tend not to use panties anymore, for example :P. And now I’m making flower pots, candlesticks, vases and all kinds of things out of, well, rubbish.
For this partnership I was given the challenge of making objects from the packaging of JĀSÖN® Personal Care. I’ve taken shampoo bottles, soap bottles, facial wipe containers and all kinds of lovely vessels and upcycled them into useful and fun items for the home. I’ve known about JĀSÖN® products for a while–I actually remember buying JĀSÖN® toothpaste for my now husband, Jason when we first started dating seven years ago. I bought it just ’cause of the name–but we got hooked and have been using it for years now.
I got to try out a ton of other products from the JĀSÖN® product line for this partnership as well and my favorite products so far (besides the toothpaste obviously) are the Quick Clean™ Makeup Remover Pads and the Soothing 84% Aloe Vera Crème (IASC Certified). (Their products are of made of gentle, wholesome ingredients–I even used the cream confidently on Ida.)
I will be sharing all of the projects, and how to make them throughout the month of February on JĀSÖN’s Pinterest Board together with a whole slew of other upcycling inspo so won’t you join me? Making this stuff has been a total hoot and I think you’ll be surprised by some of my DIYs!
