Our Simple Living Toowoomba group kicked off the year with a great jam making workshop this morning. Our very competent, Glenys, made pineapple jam on a day which was heating up by the hour but it wasn't too bad in the morning thankfully and we were rewarded with a bottle of jam each to bring home. Some of us were fortunate to score a bottle of her mango chutney as well.

A friend let me know that ALDI had Spirulina on special this past week as she was keen to try it in soap as was I so I bought a packet to do some experimenting. To be honest I knew nothing about Spirulina apart from the fact that it was very expensive to buy but when I opened the packet....oh, the smell! What on earth was in this stuff??? So I did an online search and came up with What is Spirulina and it turns out it is a ' spiral-shaped microalgae that grows naturally in the wild in warm, fresh water lakes.' Hence the smell of seaweed.

I haven't been to a craft show for years. Now I know why....I get too tempted to buy craft supplies I don't always use. Am I the only one? Anyway it is too late now as I have already succumbed to temptation and will have to start experimenting with my new
toys crafty items before I put them away and forget about them until I am in the middle of a decluttering frenzy in the future. I mean...I still have some Jo Sonja varnish that I bought at a craft show probably 20 years ago.

There are a few events going on in our neck of the woods this month. We have our first Simple Living Toowoomba workshop of the year on the 18th and it will be a jam making workshop presented by Glenys who showed all three of us how to make pickles at our first ever workshop back in 2012. I can't believe it was that long ago. By the way if you would like the recipe for the Cauliflower Pickles Glenys made then just click on the link.
