Here at Crafting a Green world, you know we love making our own beauty supplies or a good gardening project. Heck, some of us even are growing natural crafting supplies in our gardens! So you can imagine my excitement when I ran across Regina Briggs’ book full of DIY projects to “craft a sustainable domestic life!”

Raleigh Briggs’ Make Your Place: Affordable, Sustainable Nesting Skills is a fully hand-drawn book from Microcosm Publishing that’s packed with projects for making all sorts of supplies for the home. According to the publisher:

It’s full of simple skills that anyone can and should learn. From creating tinctures and salves, to concocting all-natural cleaners, to gardening basics, this book is great for anyone looking to live more simply and truly do it themselves.

The 128-page book is a total steal at just $5! If you’re feeling splurgy, you can pick up Briggs’ other DIY zines, also from Microcosm: Nontoxic House Cleaners and Herbal First Aid for another dollar apiece!
