Hi, I’m Rebecca, the creator behind Roses & Whiskers!
Do you know the song, “My Favorite Things” from “The Sound of Music”? Sing the lyrics along with me for a second: “Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens.” Get it? “Roses & Whiskers” signifies some of my favorite things, like baking, writing and creating.
Here are a few other random facts about me:
In 2008, I discovered that I’m gluten-intolerant. Back then it was much harder to find quality gluten free foods and ingredients. Luckily, today, no one even knows that my treats are gluten free unless I tell them. All of my recipes can be made with either gluten-free or gluten-full flour.
I loved crafting as a kid and rekindled my love for that kind of creativity when I planned my 2017 wedding. I have a very crafty friend who guided me through my long list of wedding DIY projects, for which I’ll be forever grateful. I still have a lot to learn but I’m excited to share some of my crafting projects so that you can try them with me!
I’m married to a wonderful man (Ian) who is the reason this blog is up and running. Technology is not my strong suit.
I’m currently a cat mom to these three furry felines: (from left to right) Clara, Dolly and Einstein. This picture is a few years old now. Clara is 4 years old and my former kittens are already 3!
We lost our sweet Abby (left) and Benji (middle) in 2019. But they will always be my babies. <3
You can also now purchase some of my baked goods at Charlotte-area festivals and pop-up events. Follow me on Instagram @rosesandwhiskers or on Facebook for event updates. You can also contact me for individual or event orders.
Thanks so much for following along on my baking and (occasional) crafting adventures!
