As Amanda writes in the introduction, "As a crafter, I'm always looking for the next thing I want to make. As a mama, I'm always looking for the next thing we need-to do, to have, to use-as a family. The coming together of these parts is where the heart of Handmade Home lies."Filled with thirty-three projects made by reusing and repurposing materials, all of the items here offer a practical use in the home.

Also included are projects that children can help with, allowing them to make their own special contribution to the family home.
