Here's my new puppy :)
I've already been playing with it....so excited! I ran outside and gathered all kinds of dried plant life and I've been looking all around the house for other impressions I can make. I am definitely more drawn to making impressions of things I find in nature....plants, twigs, etc. But I'm thinking of using some other designs too.
I haven't included any shop pictures in awhile....
I'm working with those three stones at the moment. When I took this picture I was getting ready to measure the bezel (fine silver strip) around the stones.
I took those pictures yesterday while working.....today I did this:
I made tortillas with my little monkey's help. Both of my boys love getting the stool and standing at my cutting board when I am cooking. Of course, the real reason they love it is because they get to sample and snack on whatever I'm making!
I grew up eating tortillas, chile (red and green!), sopa, beans and papitas, so I make an effort to make this for my sons as well. Norbert and I always talk very fondly about the food we grew up eating.....one day we had the epiphany that we wanted our boys to have those same experiences. I didn't want them to experience that only when their grandmas were around!!
We get a lot of joy out of being able to create these same memories for them (have I mentioned how much I love food???!).
I'll be back with pictures of new work ;)
