Hello and welcome to The Compost Bin. I'm Compostwoman and I live with my family in rural Herefordshire. We have nearly four acres of garden and woodland, all managed organically, which we share with Chickens, Cats, Guinea Pigs and assorted wildlife. We also grow a lot of our own food, run courses in all sorts of things and make a lot of compost!

I work as an environmental educator, lecturer, writer and Forest School leader at Moors Wood . I am a Master Composter and have spent the last 11 years as a volunteer Community Compost adviser with Garden Organic and my local Council. I offer talks and run workshops and events where we talk about compost, veg growing, chicken keeping, cooking, preserving and sustainable living. We also make crafts and have fun.

We try to live a more self sufficient lifestyle here, as best we can, while still having a comfortable life and lots of fun. To learn more about us click on the About Compostwoman tab and remember to click on the photos to make them full size!

Crafting with Scotch.

No, not with alcohol! I was sent some Scotch Super Glues to try out recently.
I love these bug eyes - I take them out on my composting stall. I have viewing pots with compost samples inside, so people can see the insects which do the composting and live in a compost heap. Then the people can put on the bug eyes  and "see" in the same way as an insect does. When the bug eyes got broken a few months back I was really sad.

But..a bit of the new Super Glue gel from Scotch along the line of the break and they were fixed!

I am so pleased :)

The bottle draws the liquid back in when you stop squeezing. Perfect for stopping your designs getting ruined by excess glue! It also eliminates the frustration of dried glue around the tip of the bottle. The Scotch Super Glue Precision Applicator apparently uses a ‘stay-fresh’ bottle that prevents the glue from drying out on the inside.

I am sure the Scotch Super Glue gel ( and the other bottle of Super Glue liquid I was sent) will be really useful for fixing lots of other stuff I have stored away, waiting for a rainy day to make me get fixing. I am so impressed after using it to fix my bug eyes as it didn't make a mess, it went where I wanted it to, and unlike other experiences I have had of super glue  - it didn't stick anything apart from what I wanted it to stick.

Not sure I would let Compostgirl use it yet (at 12 she is maybe still a bit young for super glue?), but for adult use it was very good stuff indeed.

Thumbs (unstuck) up for 3M Scotch Super Glue.

 Disclaimer -I was sent a free sample of Scotch Super glue gel and liquid to review. This post originally appeared ( in an expanded form) on The Compost Bin but I thought it might be useful over here as well. As always, the words I write are my own and are my honest opinions.
