Winner Wonderland | Day 09 Hands-on Home

Hands-on Home Giveaway via Besotted Blog

Michelle had a chance to see ‘The Hands-on Home’ book in the wild this weekend and her verdict?  She says that Sasquatch books brought it with the quality, cover is soooo nice. A while book I had a vintage book I loved similar to this, but it was old dog-eared and didn’t cover such things as avoiding botulism. The author Erica Strauss says about the book, “I wrote the book to help people to shift their home form consumption to production..” We know that we have a crafty bunch of readers so we think you’ll truly enjoy adding this to your library.

To enter to win one  copy of  The Hands-on Home Book please answer the following question:

I’ve been making my own non-toxic cleaning products lately, what domestic skill would you like to learn how to do or improve on?

  1. I used to make our bread all the time, a loaf every day or two. I would like to bake again. It’s been a long time I did nice things for my family.

  2. Could really use some improvement in the culinary arts department. Struggling in that front and would love for it to be more second nature – to “whip something up” or be comfortable experimenting without exact ingredients or recipes.

  3. A domestic skill I would love to master is the art of making my own sourdough bread. I’m too fortunate to have many bakeries close by that offer exquisite loaves – so alas, it’s a art I haven’t yet ventured into with too much gusto.

  4. I would love to master the art of ironing. I love a crisp, clean look. Try as I may, I would be nothing less than disheveled were it not for Ruby’s Cleaners.

  5. I would love to learn preserving / canning / jarring – I’m petrified of having a glass jar explosion or bacteria ruin hard work!

  6. I’d love to learn how to make jam! Also, I made candles recently & it made me think about the notes of perfumes…that would also be interesting to learn how to make.

  7. Sewing! By my age, my mom made her own clothes, and it would be so awesome to be able to tell people that the one-of-a-kind piece I’m wearing is something that I made with my own bare hands.

  8. My husband and I are nesting in our first year of marriage – I sew and bake (mmmm, bread), he cleans and carpenters (is that a verb??) but I haven’t gotten a handle on seasonal gardening/preserving or eco-friendly cleaning supplies. I know I could just google it, but I love the idea of having something solid in my hands, a recipe book for the domestic arts, that I could pass on someday.

  9. Wow this book looks amazing and beautiful! That front cover and fonts! Wow! One skill that I’d like to develop at home would be gardening and knowing which herbs and plants to use for home remedies.
