There are so many projects inside the book, How to Do Absolutely Everything by Instructables.com and Sarah James. I really love the info on candle making and tye-dye. It's a great book for about anything you can do at home, with items you find easily. I really love that there also is tons of photo images to follow along with and helpful guidance. Many strange ways to do things can be found inside, which I would have never thought about, but plenty that I can use on a daily basis! I love to craft and the section on crafting projects really captured my attention. However, the ideas on tech gadgets like solar power and even fun food ideas like cake pops also made me interested to try, and read on! It's really such a wonderful book, so many homemade projects that take some reuse of old items and turns them into something magnificent! I honestly can't wait to get started and create a few of these projects listed inside, especially some candles. I think that is the first project I'll start with because I have everything, thanks to a friend giving up her candle gear and with the easy to follow directions I'll be able to create my first one yet! Finally, these books by Instructables.com are so awesome and fun to use for DIY. I really think this one has plenty to do and some easy and others that may need a little more time and knowledge of the use of the tools, but it's still just a wonderful book to work with and have a weekend of creations to make for the home or someone else.
