Cool Caps! and Bottlecap Little Bottlecap are how-to art & craft books about the utilization of recycled, plastic bottle caps from milk jugs, orange juice cartons, water bottles, cola bottles, shampoo bottles, margarine tubs, and other products.

Michelle has visited over 50 elementary schools and organizations as an artist-in-residence and continues to share her passion for creating with humble materials in her books, workshops, presentations and exhibitions.
