May Birthday Giveaway: good stuff from Rakka Deer

cards and painting from Rakka Deer!

Today I’m happy to have a bunch of goods from local artist Rakka Deer, aka Kris. She’s got style and wit, and she’s got a huge number of projects going on at any given time. It amazes me. Besides Rakka Deer and her Etsy shop she has 37 Confections, Stupid Fucking Awesome, Excheckered, Pax and Ak, Skull Diggery, Suspect and Fugitive, a Tumblr and Glitter Pissing. She’s offering up some good stuff from her shop: a six pack of geek cards, a thread painting and a six pack of Inigo Montoya cards featuring a drawing she did of the character over a pile of Hello My Name Is stickers (this still makes me laugh).

And while I’m talking about Rakka Deer please allow me to mention this: Recently the town she grew up in was devastated by the tornadoes and flooding along the Mississippi so she’s raising money by holding a Bake Sale for the South, which is happening at the Cakespy Shop here in Seattle on Saturday, May 14th at 11 a.m. I’ll be baking for it (something in jars, but of course). Also on Saturday is the Great American Bake Sale
for “Share Our Strength”
at the uptown Metropolitan Market starting at 9:30 a.m. Two bake sales! Seattle is in luck.

To win the package of items from Rakka Deer please leave a comment with this website. You’ve got until Saturday, May 14th at 10 a.m. PST to enter, the fine print applies. If you’d like something to chat about answer this question: What is your favorite thing to make for, or buy at, bake sales? Clearly I enjoy making stuff in jars. Alright, good luck!

    I just had a vegan bakesale! Truffles were enormously fun to make – I would highly recommend them! They were a super hit… and while they were a great deal of work, they were worth it.
    <3 Happy Bday and thanks for the opportunity to win

    My mom’s chocolate chip cookies always sell out quickly! It helps that they are gigantic and overstuffed with chips.
