BEAUTIFUL Hand-Painted Tiles & Trivets (a giveaway)

Have you met Renee of Kudos Kitchen before?  Maybe you remember Renee as a cookie maker (and University of Cookie professor), creating the most beautiful PAINTED cookies.  But earlier this year, Renee hung up her apron and started making art that wouldn't be, well, eaten.

Renee is an artist and she makes the prettiest, hand-painted tiles and trivets you've ever seen.  Check out the one she made for me:
*squee*  Can you believe she recreated my blog header?!?

Well, Renee was kind enough to offer one of her holiday tiles to one of you!!!

Whether for your own kitchen, or for a friend (Christmas is right around the corner, you know), you are going to be amazed by Renee's talent!  She truly does have a gift.


Here's what you need to do to enter the giveaway:
{Thank you, Renee, for the beautiful tile!  I just LOVE it!}

Winner will be selected, Tuesday, November 9th at 8pm CST.  Good Luck!
