MAWA Over the Top 2020

This has been quite the year of adjustments and “new normals.” Amongst them, the annual MAWA Over the Top art auction and cupcake party has gone digital. Although you can’t mix and mingle and eat your weight in free cupcakes, you can still bid on amazing art (including mine) and support a fantastic organization.

This year, I have donated my collage “My Favourite Position” and it just so happens to be part of the August lot, which closes at the end of the month. (Read: GO BID NOW!)

My Favourite Position – Rebecca Hadfield

There are two ways to view and bid on the artwork:

1. View in-person at MAWA, 611 Main Street, Winnipeg. (Wed – Sat, 12 – 4 pm) Only 5 guests will be allowed in MAWA at any given time to ensure physical distancing. (Note: In-person bidding closes Aug 29.)

2. Or bid from the comfort of your couch! Go here: to see the digital images and bid on your fave before the lot closes on Aug 30!

Cupcakes, cupcakes, cupcakes!

If the thought of bidding on art without a cupcake in your hand is too much, may I suggest one of these tried and tested recipes from my food blog?
