A little remodel...

So, this Christmas, I decided to buy myself a little gift!  It was overdue.  I'm not the most technologically gifted (this blog post is all about gifts!)  I can paint and show off my crafting skills, but when it comes to uploading and re-routing, I called on the amazing talent of Emily from Polka Dot Pixels to help me remodel my home on the web.  I'm even going to start Twittering now, too!  (Shock & Awe!)

Remember, tomorrow is the last night to enter the giveaway for the Key Fob!  How to win? Simply "LIKE" The Spotted Lamb on Facebook and then go HERE! and let me know you entered so I can put your name into the drawing!  TOMORROW is the deadline!

Oh, the giveaways continue.  I wish I could offer you mulled wine and some Christmas cookies!  If you haven't signed up for the BIG Annie Sloan Chalk Paint giveaway, WHAT are you waiting for?  You can do that here....CHALK PAINT GIVEAWAY!!!!  The best part?  You get to CHOOSE your favorite colors.

And, last but NOT least, to celebrate my new website, blog, and twitter (uh, reunion)...CHECK OUT the new photos on my site.  Pacheco Photography followed me around at my last workshop at Roost Consignment in Napa.  I felt like some kinda celeb.


In the spirit of the holidays...Pacheco Photography is raffling away one free photo shoot to anyone local who enters the contest with a "like" at Pacheco Photography on Facebook!  Post on their wall and tell them Patina Decorative Finishes sent you!  Travis' blog posts are super entertaining.  If you love dogs, you will love's my personal favorite dog story of all time...Bella's Story

Wishing you all a wonderful pre-holiday weekend.  I'm delivering paint to my people this weekend and checking out two new shops that are going to carry Annie Sloan Chalk Paint SOON!
