Make It From Scratch #33- From Around the World

The desire to make things from scratch is not limited to a region, a country or even a continent. Around the world people want to cook, craft and create from scratch to express themselves, to save money, and for a sense of accomplishment.

In the thirty three weeks this carnival has been in existence, bloggers from Asia, Australia, Europe and North America have shared their ideas, learning experiences and successes. I've been inspired to try new things, and I hope you have too!

This week our selections are from the U.K. and the U.S. Enjoy!
