I’m like Oprah with her favorite things. And I want to GIVE THEM TO YOU!!

There are two things that I really love. Well. Okay. Not true. There are many, many things that I truly love. Shoes, obviously. That look Dylan McKay gets when he’s thinking about his pretend-dead daddy. A good book on a rainy day. An overly full glass of red wine. Spending all day making soup on cold Sundays in the winter. Well placed profanity and making Patrick just a little crazy.

But the two loves I want to talk about today are baking and DIY Home projects.

And how I’ve teamed up with my friend Jacque and her adorable husband Matt at The DIY Village to give you a kick ass chance to win something adorable and some delicious goodies to gorge yourself on while you admire your cute new wall art.

Intrigued? YOU SHOULD BE. Check out these pictures…




So that’s a 12×12 Pottery Barn inspired Santa Wall Art handmade by Matt and Jacque, Six Chocolate Chip Sandwich Cookies and a full pound of Salted Caramel, Pretzel and Reese’s Bark from the Bad Kitty Bakery. And entering is CRAZY easy!!

(There are links all over this post but they are almost the same color as the rest of my text and I’m not tech savvy enough to know how to change that… so you have to look around…sorry!)

1. Go to Facebook and like both Bad Kitty Bakery AND The DIY Village.
2. Go to the DIY Village and scroll to the bottom of the post to enter. The widget thingy takes a second to load but it is AWESOME…

And that’s it! The giveaway runs from 12/6 through 12/12 and is open to people in the continental United State only (shipping is way complicated… sorry Canada… can we still be friends?)

While I have your attention… I want to ALSO direct your attention to the Bad Kitty Bakery Holiday Gift Box. Seriously… You need to send these to your relatives. And your clients. And your neighbors. They are magical. I know because I put unicorn dust on them myself. These things are in them…

Wouldn’t you like to know what those are? You know what? You should go learn about them. You know… after you enter the giveaway.

Giveaway! NOW! GO!!

** Also? Patrick and I are about to refinish our kitchen cabinets. We will probably kill each other. With stains and wood strippers and random orbit sanders. We also do a lot of standing around in the basement and waiting and have taken up playing darts. I am predictably awful.**

It’s like the internet equivalent to jumping out of the cake, right?

So. A while back I hinted at maybe an exciting endeavor in the works of the baking variety. Well… holy crapola. It’s here. And I’m ABSOLUTELY pimping out my new project on this little corner of the internet. (And if you want to do the same, I will love you for a hundred years!)

Drum roll please…

Introducing the Bad Kitty Bakery!!

This is insane, right? But I finally did it. I got off my ass and took the plunge. Suddenly it seemed not scary anymore. I kind of think Neena gave me a little nudge. Or a big one, perhaps.

But anyway. Go forth and buy cookies! And because you guys here are my long-time homies, use the copy PAINTINGCHEF20 and get 20% off your order.

Also? Tell your friends. As soon as I get my bearings about things, I’ll be doing a giveaway for a cake or something. We’ll figure that all out once we get there.

Also again? Like me on Facebook!! That’s where I’ll post specials and other coupon codes and things.
