I was surprise to see that two wonderful ladies tagged me, Lora Hart and Sandra (Marbella Designs.) I will do my best to answer the questions .
What is your current obsession ?
Making jewelry and finding the right firing for my pieces in copprclay!!!!
What is your weirdest obsession ?
Washing my hands A LOT! I can not have my hands dirty, can you imagine when I work with metal clay?? At the beginning I was not enjoying to work with the clay, I had to wash my hands a lot, now I am getting use to have my fingers with clay ;-} but when I cook....That is another story. Wash , wash, wash my hands!
What would you eat for your last meal ?
Hmmmmm that is difficult to choose. I will ask for my grandma's bean and rice soup, it is simple but so good!!!!! I will also ask for my grandma's Rice lasagna, this is heaven!!!!! For dessert, a Tres Leches cake made by my GRANDMA! I love my grandma's food and her a lot!
What are you wearing Today?
I have black sandals with a red dress that has little black leaves. Big gold arracadas (earrings) and a necklace I made with my bronzclay mask and turquoise.

What is your favorite color ?
Red, Mexican blue ;-} and orange. I like all the colors but if they are bright better.

  1. Oh, thanks for participating. I've gotten to know you through this little game.

  2. Funny, I just had a tag similar to this one, but not as involved! It's fun to read all the details though, so I will do it when I return from Europe. I leave for London tomorrow!!

  3. I really enjoyed reading your answers. I will do it this week Lorena. Thank you for tagging me.

    Also, I think you have a very nice blog and I love all the pictures of your work. You are so careful. Sorry your things broke. You will figure it out, I know. Patrik Kusek told us today at our guild meeting that he fires the Copprclay at 1770° for 3 hours now. Did you do that? I haven't done it yet but I just heard this for the first time today so I thought I would tell you.

    Lucky Vickie, going to London!


  4. Thank you girls! ;-}

    wow!! Vickie enjoy your trip!!!!

    Catherine: Thanks for the tip about copprclay, I was going to write Bill Struve but I will try what Patrik is doing.

  5. I loooove Gaudi! That's the real reason I'm dying to go to Spain. And Botrero goes without saying. We have lots in common. And I'd love the recipe for the rice lasagna. I don't eat wheat and have been missing regular noodles.

  6. Dear Lora,
    YES we do have a lot of things in common ;-}. I am also dying to go to Spain and see Gaudi's work.
    About the rice lasagna, we do not use rice pasta, we use rice. You add one layer of rice, one of corn, one of calabaza, one of cream cheese blended with poblano peppers, etc, etc.
    It is very good!

  7. Love your answers, Lorena and I will try and get mine posted in the next week!
    Nice to know about Patrik's firing schedule, wish I could've made the meeting.

  8. I also love Frida Kahlo...sheis my favorite too. And wash my hands a lot...soooo perfectionist...I know the feeling...
    Thank you for following my blog. I am having a super sale...come and check it out!
