    Welcome to House of Mahalo…

    Hey there, I’m Justine! I’m so happy you found me and my little part of the crafting world. I have a bit of an obsession with junk journals and upcycling, so that’s exactly what you’ll find on my website, YouTube channel and shop.

    From showing you how to make ephemera and embellishments for your journals to sharing inspirational ideas for using old books, paper and everything in between, I’m determined to make everyone fall in love with junk journals and crafting.

    And… if you’re ever in any doubt whether you want to join me on my journey, my favourite motto is: “DONE is better than perfect.”
