This looked like a cute book when I saw the excerpt in a recent Rosie magazine and I thought that it would be nice to make some homemade gifts for Christmas. Once I bought the book, I found it would be a long time before I could make any of the crafts. The list of ingredients that you need is endless. I have searched all of the local drug stores, craft stores, and health food stores trying to assemble what I need to make some of the soaps and beauty products. Most of the ingredients are nowhere to be found locally, so I will have to order them over the internet. Despite a long search, I still am looking forward to finally making some of these things. Of course, I'll have to make something because of the huge investment involved. If the soaps and other recipes don't turn out, I'll probably have enough supplies to open my own craft supply store. If they do turn out O.K., then the book was worth it. That is why I'm rating the book as O.K., but not great.
