Hello, I’m Tambra and I Have a Pinterest Addiction

I love Pinterest and can easily burn an hour or two there. If you go my spot you’ll quickly learn: I love Doctor Who, cooking, art crafts, Cairn Terriers, Fantasy/Steampunk and Vintage clothing and DIY stuff. I’m making boards for my books with how I see my characters or anything related to my stories, and that’s been something I’ve never done before.My Pinterest spot: https://www.pinterest.com/tambranicole/

I have Celiac, so I’m always open to good and easy gluten free recipes. There are some really nice recipes. In the future I’l love to try out some of them. I need to narrow the category down and choose.

I’ve found some Etsy vendors and bought some products.

I need to make a folder on my computer for all the information I want to keep on DIY natural cosmetics and household tips. Some form of organization to store all of this luscious knowledge. How do y’all manage your Pinterest goodies ? I’d love to hear what works for you!

All the best! Tambra



Vanilla Cake

When my husband and I go to San Antonio we stay at Chicken Paradise Bed and Breakfast. We learned about The Little Aussie Bakery from the owners Anne and Joe. Having Celiac can make things difficult at times. Chicken Paradise is the only gluten free B&B in the state of Texas (that I know of.) Our first trip to Little Aussie Bakery and I spied this beauty in the case. The next time we’re in San Antonio and at the bakery, I want a slice. I can tell you The Little Aussie Bakery has amazing pizza. The lemon cookies and the Anzac Bikkies are melt-in-your-mouth. I stock up on the cookies. Little Aussie Bakery also ships most of their items so take a look at their website. Don’t forget, if you’re in San Antonio to stop on by. My husband doesn’t have Celiac and he enjoys the Little Aussie Bakery, too.

A Country in Crisis—How Pop Culture is Devaluing Men AND Women

I love Kristen Lamb’s blog and I hope you will, too. This is such a wonderful, thought provoking post.

Meet the "Facelessbook Friends" Age and Invisibility

Back when I was in sales, we had a saying, “Say it once. Say it twice. Say it three times. Say it four times. Say it five times and they will believe.” Traditional marketing has hinged on this tenet for generations. The more people see product, an idea, etc. the better chance it will become “sticky” and meld into the collective consciousness.

This is also the foundation of any dictatorship, a concept those of us in political science called a “Cult of personality.” Propaganda is powerful.

Last post, I blogged about how seemingly innocent ads and blogs are anything but. Yes, I agree, some 20-something telling women over thirty they shouldn’t wear sparkles or eyeshadow shouldn’t affect how I feel about myself and frankly? It doesn’t.

She can go pound sand.

The problem is when an idea or attitude becomes SO pervasive that it translates into a…
