Lavender Soap with Beeswax

I have been wanting to make a harder soap as I have noticed when I use certain oils in my soapmaking that the soap isn't quite as hard as I would like. A soapmaking friend said she adds beeswax to her batches of soap so I thought I would give that a try as I am always up for a bit of experimenting with making soap.

Food Preservation Workshop ~ Simple Living Toowoomba

Our Simple Living Toowoomba group has a great workshop coming up on the 14th September. Racheal from Birdsong Market Garden will be speaking about food preservation and if any previous workshops on the same topic are any indication, this will be a very popular one.

A little rain and and a Blogger problem

We had a little rain overnight and I am sure nobody is complaining. We heard thunder yesterday for the first time in many months and hopefully some areas received helpful downfalls in the storms that passed through. We had mainly light rain where we live but I am not sure if it was heavier on the other side of town which is often the case. Still a little rain is better than no rain as it is extremely dry in many parts of Queensland and some towns are almost out of water.

A new craft started and finished

I had my first and probably last foray into the world of mosiacs these past few weeks. A few years ago on Rhonda's now closed Down to Earth Forum one of the members did a wonderfully inspiring tutorial on how to decorate a stepping stone with mosiacs. Of course I got excited and headed off to Bunnings to buy my supplies but then didn't quite get around to starting the project. Sound familiar?
