Holy Doodle I hit 2000 “Likers” on Facebook

giveawaybadge

Seriously, who’d have thunk it?  Not me, at least not a year and a bit ago when I started my Facebook page.  I was just happy to get my friends to like it :)

So to celebrate I compiled a few things that every baker or sweet connoisseur needs.

I had wanted to make something awesome to celebrate. I mean it is quite a milestone, but I cracked a rib this past week and I’ve been told not to do anything for at least a week and I didn’t want to wait.  I may never get to the 10,000 mark like so many of my amazing bloggy friends, but I’m ok with it.  I just like to share my stuff and anyone else’s stuff that is, in my opinion, truly awesome!

Ok, Ok, the giveaway!
