Day 1 of the 30 day blog challenge!

Day 1 – Your Blog’s Name

How did I come up with my blog name? Well really, WHIMSY AND WHISKERS just struck me in the middle of the night (sorry, no big wild story!), but really sums up me and my life up perfectly!

Whimsy – If there is one word to describe me… it would be WHIMSICAL! I love the sound of the word and what it entails. It’s fanciful, colourful, playful, unusual, silly, just fun! I’ve never fit “in the box” and I’m pretty okay with that!

It’s hard to lose me in a crowd 😉


Whiskers – Well this one is OBVIOUS! I LOVE CATS. I was able to adopt my first cat this past spring (as a child my dad was allergic so despite my constant begging, I wasn’t allowed to have my own – but that didn’t stop me from cuddling every single cat I could find!) and she has become my very best friend since. Yes, I’m a proud crazy cat lady.

So to sum up, WAW (wow!) is a blog that is all about me, my cat, and our adventures.

Yes, we’re a definite kooky pair!

Tah dah! Day 1 DONE!

(I’m having trouble with uploading pictures onto my blog right now 🙁 so sorry for the boring text post!! Working on solving this silly thing.) Edit: SOLVED!

Welcome to my latest adventure…. BLOGGING!

Oh hi there and welcome to my brand sparkling new empty internet space! This past year was my busiest EVER!! I now live in the pink sugar coma-inducing home of my daydreams, adopted an extremely cuddly kitty cat, ran a half marathon, finally learned to knit AND feel darn amazing (PHEW!!)

My whimsical pink living room!
This was back in March and some how, my house is WAY more pink now than it was here!
You can see me from a mile away!
Sugar Sweet
I adopted this pretty girl (her name is SUGAR!) in April!
Knitted donut!
When I can’t eat sugar, I create sugary things! Yes, I clearly have a MASSIVE sweet tooth 😉

The only “problem” is the year is almost over and I didn’t have the time to squeeze in everything that I wanted to and all of the crafty fun creativeness kept getting pushed off (figuratively, and in a very literal way by the cat!) So right now my brain is stuffed to the brim with all sorts of creative ideas and craziness!!

Chair stealer!
But she’s the reason I can’t get anything done! (Okay, I’ve been using that as a bit of an excuse but no more!)

I guess the only thing a girl can do is step it up next year and BLOG about it! My plan is to create a little bit everyday – whether it’s a yummy thing, a crafty, a knitted thing, and any other thing I can think of. Then share it with the whole world here!

Sewing and Sugar the Cat!
My new sewing machine! My 2019 goal is to learn how to use it and start sewing my own clothes!

Technically I was going to make this my 2019 resolution, but I’m INPATIENT and can’t wait to go, and I have some fun little ideas up my ruffly pink sleeves and want to share them NOW! So see you soon! xoxo
