I feel I need a little positive encouragement in some of our lifestyle choices at the moment so bought myself Making It. I enjoy reading Kelly & Erik's blog - because they sound so, um, normal, and their efforts look like things we can actually do here and now. Sure enough...Project 1: Olive Oil Lamps. I had the licorice tin, the wick (doesn't everyone have wick just laying around?) and of course, the olive oil. Voila! The kids are thrilled with it. We're all looking forward to going slowly through the book and ticking a few more things off...some we're already doing, some very achievable.
