so is there a way to get this book if you dont have the electronic or internet capabilities? It sounds like a good one.

I appreciate the intention of this book and there are some very interesting projects, as well as plenty of information on recycling, re-using, repurposing. Due to the presence of some very high level artistic energy, some of the projects might be too complicated for beginners. I prefer projects that scream "Even YOU can do this, Patty." LOL
