About Me

My photo
Hi, Welcome to my Blog. I'm an eclectic kind of crafter delving into many pots. I am just about managing to keep up my Scrapbooking Diary (usually about 6 months behind), plus any cards as required. I have a new found love of Watercolour and Bible Journaling plus recently Faith/Art Journaling too. I've challenged myself to make an art journal page a day for this my 60th year. Previously I've also dabbled in ATCs, Tags, Altered Books, Mixed Media, Décopatch, Knitting, Crochet, and Embroidery amongst other things. I live in Surrey, UK with my husband, our son has left home now. For exercise I usually play Badminton and go Ballroom and Latin Dancing. I also like walking/Geocaching and sometimes do a bit of Bouncing on my Rebounder (mini trampoline). I have been learning to play the harp for the past 10yrs. I am now officially retired. I am a born again Christian, currently worshiping at my local Vineyard Church.

WOYWW #260 - Kitchen Chemistry

Can't believe I have only just remembered it is WEDNESDAY and of course the WOYWW 5th Anniversary SWAP!!!!!

My excuse is that it is half term and having been rather poorly over the weekend I have only just managed to finish up my Kitchen Chemistry Course which came to an end last Friday.

So my desk this week is the kitchen counter and my last experiment.

We were discovering how enzymes work as catalysts in biology.

We showed how toxic hydrogen peroxide is broken down to harmless oxygen and water using enzymes found in potatoes and yeast. I never knew hydrogen peroxide is a by-product of breathing so our body needs to break it down pretty quick.

I have a few ATC's left up for grabs, here's a reminder.

Happy 5th WOYWW anniversary everyone, and a huge thanks to Julia for hosting such a wonderful blog hop each week. FOR FIVE YEARS!

Hi BJ, sorry to hear you have not been well, hope you are on the mend now. Well this is something different to see, how interesting. Are you doing the kitchen chemistry course as a family or is it just you? Chemistry was not one of my best subjects at school lol. On the other hand I do know a beautiful ATC's when I see one or eight even! I would love to swap with you again this year if you still have one spare, just let me know.
Happy WOYWW 5th Anniversary.
Hugs Lottie

Bit late posting this week, thought I would never get to you sweet girl. Hope you are having a great WOYWW anniversary week.
Very interesting course.
Love the ATCs.
Happy crafting, Angela x 40

I was pretty surprised at that, too. I've used hydrogen peroxide as a mouth wash before. Someone told me it was the best thing for your mouth. When I saw that lesson, I was shocked and surprised.

Hope your WOYWW anniversary was spectacular. I'm 21 this week, or at least I was the last time I checked.

I'm so relieved I am not the only person leaving comments this late in the week!! Just spotted that you have left a comment on my post for WOYWW. Yes, I'm up for the scavenger hunt challenge again. Apart from the sheer fun of it - I think it may well prove to be a great way of getting John out in the glorious Welsh summer air. Brought him home on Thursday afternoon - after 6 weeks in hospital!
Now, let's go find your piccies....
