We had a really busy week and spent yesterday at Big stick long bow in DeRidder/LA taking pictures and working on our booth. How lucky are we to have so much fun! Have a blessed weekend and here are a few pictures! Prim blessings~ Tandra
Teresa and I tore up the roads today, we were in Glenmora/LA at Junkin' on Main in the morning, filling and fluffing our booth and visiting with Miss Tina. And by the afternoon we were in Fisher/LA at The Ole Mill Store do a little of the same, filling and fluffing and visiting with Miss Ann a bit too. It was a busy and very ambitious day and I just love it when I get a lot done! We are heading out to DeRidder tomorrow to our booth at Big stick long bow and to do a little shopping too. Here are a few pictures to enjoy and if you would like too see more check out my FB or Pinterest. Thanks for visiting and Prim blessings~ Tandra
Seems like we are on the road a lot lately but it might be that the places we consign in are spread out in opposite directions. I'm meeting my partner in crime at 9am this morning and we are taking a load up to Junkin' on Main in Glenmora, LA and then right after that we are heading Fisher, LA to drop the rest of the stuff off. Then back on the road tomorrow to our booth in DeRidder at Big stick long bow. Wow, I am already tired just thinking about it but, we have so much fun! Prim blessings~ Tandra
Is everyone else as obsessed with Pinterest as I am? It might be the best invention of time (well, maybe I exaggerated a little!) I have found some wonderful recipes and it's the best dream/inspiration board. If you are looking for a Pinterest obsessed feel free to follow me!
Prim blessings and happy pinning!~ Tandra
Wow, it's been so hectic lately. I have made a lot of changes and all for the good! I am consigning is three different locations; Junkin' on Main in Glenmora, LA. The Ole Mill store in Fisher, LA. and Big Stick Long Bow in DeRidder, LA. It keeps me really busy and gives me the freedom to come and go as I please. Please share my new locations with your friends and please let me know if you are looking for anything in particular. Also if you are looking for something to do this weekend The Forestry Festival is going on and Junkin' on Main is having a huge yard sale, I hope to see you out! Prim blessings~ Tandra
You can use any kinds of paper, candstock, printer paper. I like printer paper, it's easier to use in the printer than cardstock. 1. Pre heat oven to 200 and line both racks with crinkled tinfoil 2.Take a rectangle cake pan and put a little bit of water, it doesn't have to cover the whole pan. 3. sprinkle instant coffee down, now spay the coffee with a water bottle to moisten the coffee, leaving some areas wetter then others. 4.Dip one side of the paper then the next and put into oven to dry. You can flip paper in the oven to make sure it has dryed. 5. if you will be printing on the paper you might have to iron it, set iron on the lowest setting and iron one side then the next. 6.Now you can print on the paper or stamp and not worry about coffee staining running the ink
This project can be messy, when I do this i do a large amount at a time. I have read tutorials about this and have found the easiest way for me. I buy cheap candles, at the dollar store or walmart you can also grubby up other things I have done old fashioned clothes pins and made bowl fillers with and added old buttons. 1. You'll need wax, I use left over tarts or candles or i buy the cheap candles at AC Moore, I use the spicey ones like cinnabon or banana nut bread. When they are on sale you can get a large candle for a few bucks. 2. Create a double boiler with a small pot with water boiling and put glass canle in boiling water and once it melts, I also sometimes use and old coffee can. 3.Create a work area with parchement or wax paper close to stove. You'll need an area to put the candles to set up on paper or parchment. 4. Remove wax and dip candle into the melted wax a few times to get it soft. 5.Sprinkle cinnamon,(I do this on a paper plate so I can reuse the cinnamon) and dip it into the wax holding the wick or use a paint brush. Repeat until lumppy and bumpy. 6.Sprinkle with cinnamon and let dry.
Cinnamon bowl fillers
I love cinnamon bowl fillers or ornaments. They are cheap to do and people really love them.This can be a messy project and when I make this I make a lot( Like 3 cups of each.) 1.Mix equal parts cinnamon to equal parts apple sauce. 2.Roll dough out onto parch ment paper to desired thickness. 3.Cut out with cookie cutters.( I have a crow and a star that's really cute) 4. Lay out on parchment or wax paper and let dry, you can also speed up the process by baking at 200 but, this can take a while. 5.Optional you can sprinkle with cinnamon while wet. 6. If you are going to make ornaments you'll have to put a hole in them while they are wet, I use a straw and add twine once it has dried. They are cute as bowl fillers or with potpouri or as ornaments. You can use any smell good spice like pumkin.
Coffee stain fabric
I really like my projects to look really prim or grubby so I like to use instant coffee for my projects. 1. Wet fabric. 2. Remove as much water as possible. 3. Lay flat, do this outside if possible, it's messy. and spinkle with instant coffee, do it heavier in areas you want darker, Spay water with a water bottle to moisten coffee. 4. Let dry in the sun. 5. Rinse out or leave it depending on prefrence. 6. you can also put in the dryer to try and heat set it, I usually only do this if by chance someone might wash it. But, most of my projects aren't to be washed.
