special delivery: books

Yesterday I got those books in the mail I had posted about ordering the other day! I received Dwelling Portably, by Bert and Holly Davis; Making It: Radical Home Ec for a Post-Consumer World, by Kelly Coyne and Erik Knutzen; Make Your Place: Affordable, sustainable nesting skills, by Raleigh Briggs.

I'm going to spend some time with these books today, pick out a recipe from both Making It and Make Your Place, and commit to trying them out ASAP! I'm really excited because I think there will be a recipe in one on these books for home-made natural deodorant. I've wanted to make my own deodorant for a while now, because I hate deodorant from the store and I think it's poison. Anyway, that'll probably be my first endeavor!

More in-depth reviews of the books to come!

Also, as a side note having to do with the mail: I also just received my sample of Bonded Logic's UltraTouch Denim Insulation. It's made from recycled blue jeans! I'll post pictures of it and tell you about how soft and amazing it is a little bit later. Now that I've received the sample, I think I would like to use the insulation in The COMET.
