a little bit - alright more like a lot!

I've been tagged. Read all about it:

What is your current obsession?

Macro photography. It started with getting a new fancy camera. But now I want a new fancy lense. Check out the detail in this picture. How can you not love it?
I can't believe that life looks like this up close.

What is your weirdest obsession?
hmmm, this is hard because I don't think any of my obsessions are weird. I think everything I love is completely normal - not that others would agree. Here's one, I can't kill bugs. Even snails that are eating all of my plants get gently moved to a separate part of the garden that is termed "Snail Lane".
Another obsession is that I need to have my refridgerator organiz
ed by food group category. All produce is in resealable zip locks with a paper towel to absorb extra moisture, next shelf is leftovers and breads, and the top shelf is dairies. Cheese and meat have their own drawer as does fruits. I'll even try to stuff a huge cantelope in the fruit drawer just because that's where it belongs.

What are you wearing today?
All new clothes!! I had a shopping spree at H&M a couple weeks ago. I got the BEST $15 jeans (which I had bought in the past for $40 and thought they were a steal). A sweet graphic tee and a striped teal/ivory cardigan.

What's for dinner?
My husband's out of town so dinner is much simpler. We had a salad, toast with mashed peas and mint on top, and chicken taquitos (that was the child's choice).

What would you eat for your last meal?
so easy! seaweed salad, sushi eel roll and spicy tuna roll.
if I was really hungry then I'd go for Canter's Reuban sandwich, fries, and a

What's the last thing you bought?
ink for my printer

What are you listening to right now?
the hum of my very noisy computer. I might have to retire it soon.

What is your favorite ice-cream flavour?
Mint Chocolate Chip

What do you think of the person who tagged you?
I think Lori is so talented and such a wonderful positive spirit. I'm so happy to have found her.
Belinda is just a joy! Her paintings cheer me up everyday. I feel like sometimes we see things through the same eyes.

If you could have a house totally paid for, fully furnished anywhere in the world, where would you like it to be?
as boring as this might sound, it would be right here in Los Angeles. Even more specifically within 5 blocks of my apartment. I love where I live and long for the day when we can have a house and a yard here.

If you could go anywhere in the world for the next hour, where would you go?
What is your favorite colour?
blue (all shades although I lean towards green)

Which language do you want to learn?

What is your favorite piece of clothing in your own wardrobe?
a blue and white striped fitted jacket with frog closures and slits at the wrists. I bought it at Anthropologie about 8 years ago.

What's your favourite magazine?
favorite? gosh it's so hard to choose just one. I think my favorite is Readymade but followed by a close Martha Stewart living and InStyle magazine. Unfortunately many of my favorite mags have closed up this year.

If you had $100 now, what would you spend it on?

Favorite artist/s?
Elsa Mora

What's your favorite season and why?
I like the transitional seasons. It's the change in weather that I most appreciate it. So I love spring because you get these wonderful sunny breezy days after some damp cold ones. And then Fall because it's when the breeze returns after dry hot days.

Describe your personal style?
cheerful and comfortable. Lately I prefer jeans and cardigans, but I put a lot of focus on the colors, and the combination of colors.

What are you going to do after this?
sleep. I should be doing that now.

What are your favourite movies?
I love Closer, Lost in Translation, and Pan's Labrynth, All about my Mother (really anything by Pedro Almodóvar). I love a good story but at the end of the day it's really the aesthetics of the movie that determine if I love it. I typically fall in love with the look and the feeling of the movie. I just watched a beautiful film last night called "The House of Sand". Gorgeous!!!

What's your favourite fruit?
hands down - white peaches.

What inspires you?
other people's enthusiasm

What music do you like this week?

What is your dream job?
I'm living the dream:) If I only had 6 more hours in the day and could split my day between making jewelry and farming a backyard veggie garden.

What is stopping you?
It's the whole 6 extra hours in the day. I haven't figured that out yet.

If you could change something in the world to make it a better place what would that be?
With a magic wand I would give everyone vast amounts of TOLERANCE!!!!!!

What do you have planned for tomorrow?
Acupunture on my aching wrist. I'm optimistic that this will help. I'll also post a couple pieces to my Etsy shop and start rebuilding my inventory for my next show. It looks like a good day is heading my way.

The rules :
1. Respond and rework; answer the question on your blog, replace one question that you dislike with a question of your invention, add one more question of your own.
2. Tag eight other people.
