Thank you very much to Suzi from Art With a Touch of Whimsy for this wonderful Renee award. This is a brand new circulating award and: This Renee award was created by Bella and Ces in honour of their friend Renee. In Bella's own words "this is a brand new award and I the pleasure and honor of spreading the seed, watching it grow. I hope it finds it's way to those who are like Renee: the acorn, a small package becoming a tall and sturdy oak, giving more acorns, becoming tall and sturdy oaks, giving acorns..."
Now I will nominate 8 women who I think are wonderful!

A little while back I was wanting to save up my money and go to get laser eye surgery done...I was asking friends who had had it done and they raved about it, "Its so simple!" "only takes 45 seconds per eye!" "you have to get it done!" So I was all excited about the possibility of not having to squint at hot guys, whom I thought were good looking but in the end would be someone only a mother could love...haha...anyways....back to the story, so I thought it out...priced it out and after many a heart attack thinking about how much it would cost, an angel fell from the sky and it was called...."How its made" or "How its done..." something along those lines....a television show from heaven. That day it happened to be....How Laser Eye Surgery is Performed! I was so excited! I could finally see the process and be in awe of how simple and wonderful it was! So I watched....and I watched....and I covered my eyes.....and I squirmed.....and almost barfed....and I decided I never wanted laser eye surgery again!!.....I mean, why do you need to cut open the cornia or whatever to perform the surgery?! Why not just shine the big laser into my eye and well get it over with! Anyways....needless to say within 10 min I had changed my mind completely and Im not going to have it done unless they bring in the booth where you pay your 2 bucks and be done with it...no cutting....no nothing! Maybe they can throw in a gift certificate to have before and after pics done in the booth next to me!

I was at the sally annes earlier today and a burst of creativity came over me, what if I made...little black kitty plush toys from recycled clothing!? They would be so cute on Etsy! So I scoured the rows looking for soft cat like fur when I happened upon a girls jacket made by a certain H***nah Mo***na.... haha.....hopefully she doesnt mind me cutting up her clothes. lol
So I pranced back home with all my new things...sewing thread, cotton balls (filler) and a not so worn jacket I was about to hack up. So I looked and looked at the jacket wondering where to make my incision, and a clutch jumped out at me! Well....not exactly...I just saw in in the bottom of the arm. I started cutting and cutting and cutting....fuzzies flying everywhere...sewing and sewing and finally I came out with SCRAP KITTY!! A clutch/purse/handbag to scare all your friends and relatives! ;) Actually he is darling, and as much as I would love to keep him for myself I must allow him to be in the public eye cause hes just that cute! Hopefully he fills someones life with as much fur flying joy he has created for me!

I was not sure what to write about this time so I've decided to just post a painting I did a while ago that I think reminds me of Easter...the colours and the rain :) Spending Easter with my kitties and my own pack of chocolate mini eggs is puuuurfect for me!

You know those yummy treats that make you say to yourself..."why do I even have these in the house?!"
I went on a baking spree on Saturday and decided to make spelt ginger cookies. Let me just say a few words......chewy.....gingery.... goodness.....get these things away from me! Thank god they are all gone now cause I won't be making these babies again for another month or so...haha. They are super easy to make and only take 8 min in the oven, and really if it took any longer in the oven I would have had enough time to eat all of the ones that JUST came out. The recipe makes atleast 24 and I think between Greg, his buddy Chris and I we polished off 15 before they even had time to cool!
3/4 cup soft butter
1 cup sugar
1 tbsp water
1/4 cup molasses
*Add Dry Mixture*
2 1/4 cups spelt flour
2 tsp ground ginger
1 tsp baking soda
3/4 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp salt
*Mix together, consistency will be a little more wet than other cookie recipes. They are the most chewy, delicious things on the planet! :) Oven at 350 and bake for 8 min.

Hi my name is Hilary, and I suffer from oatmeal-aphobia.....I have come to you today to share a story of a love hate relationship coming together in a bowl. All my life I have hated oatmeal, sticky and gross and soooo not my kinda thing. Now don't ask why I did it, but the other day I bought a bag of oatmeal from the local bulk food store. I have been testing new and exciting things out for breakfast, and for some reason thought that buying oatmeal on this particular day would mean that it was possibly grown differently...taste differently...I don't know....I guess I was hoping that Kellogs had taken over the oameal industry and now every piece would be an Oatmeal Fruit Loop.

Haha, made you look at my little blog...i was talking to my nana recently and she told me, "Hilary, get your butt onto your blog and put up the kitty winners! lol" I was like, "I know! I know! my life is so busy, blah blah blah, yadda yadda yadda....I cant spare 20 minutes to type haha...." but alas my Nana is right and I need to get my butt into action. So here we go! The winners that I wrote on a piece of paper so very long ago lol please forgive me.
