speaking of scrubs. if you don’t have it already, you should definitely invest in this little volume by raleigh briggs. this hand lettered and illustrated book is stuffed to the brim with recipes for sustainable nesting. my sister cait gave it to me for christmas, along with a sugary face scrub she made following raleigh’s instructions. heavenly. the recipes are straight-forward and funny, providing step-by step diy-nesting tips without pretension. you will love it. i’m certain.
available here.

    Oh, I've seen it and do love it. I particularly love the fact that it's hand-written and has little free-hand drawings…much like the Moosewood cookbooks… Great recommendation!
