ROSCA DE REYES aka THREE KINGS CAKE

Last night I was able to squeeze in some time to make a Rosca de Reyes or Three Kings Cake as is translated in English. For those of you that have never heard of this. Here is a little history on it:

Three King's Cake (or bread) is closely allied with the traditions around the Epiphany (January 6th). This date commemorates the visit the Three Wise Men made to the baby Jesus in Bethlehem. In Mexico, the day is a gift-giving holiday. Tradition states this bread be served, garnished with the "jewels" of fruit and nuts. Usually a small clay or porcelain doll is baked inside. The custom is that whoever finds the doll must give a party on Candlemas (February 2nd).

Now that you're all educated on the matter, here are some pics :) Enjoy!

2013 CHRISTMAS COLLECTION

Tis the Season to be baking!! Miniatures of course! :) I am now 3 weeks away from giving birth to baby Mateo and yet I couldn't resist pulling out the clay to make some Christmas miniatures. I can go all year long without making something but come the holidays, my need to create does not let me rest!! Aside from the fact that I cannot resist the urge to create Christmas pieces the sales I have made so far will come in handy when I'm on maternity leave from work so it's a WIN WIN situation :)
Anyhoo, this will most l;ikey be my last post for the year unless I can squeeze in a few for mini creations, so I would like to wish all my mini friends a VERY Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah and Happy New Year!!!! May the New Year bring health, happiness and lots of mini creating to you all!

2013 VALENTINES COLLECTION

WOW! Eight long months since my last post! How have you all been getting along without me! LOL
Mini making is just not what it use to be I tell you. Working full time and being a full time first time Mom leaves no time to play. And when I do get a moment I'm usually too tired haha. I'm not complaining because Samantha is the best thing that has ever happened to me but I do wish I had more hours in a day :)

As promised in my last post I am trying to at least get some minis made for the Holidays. Yes I know, I missed Christmas, the biggest one of all, but give me a break, it was Samantha's first Christmas as well as 1st birthday all the month of December so minis were definitely out of the question.

Anyhow, don't ask me how but I was able to find a few hours here and there to make some minis for the month of LOVE! I have a few unphotographed pieces but I had to get some eye candy posted for all you weekend viewers! Enjoy!

CELEBRATING THE 4TH OF JULY!

I can't believe it has been 6 months since I have made anything in miniature! I've missed sitting and creating but have had good reason. My real life miniature (my 6 month old baby Samantha) has me working for her 24/7, so squeezing in some mini time is WAY harder than I thought it was going to be. I am trying to at least squeeze in the holidays, so you all don't forget about me! hahahaha ... I intended, key word being "intended" to make a bunch of Easter minis, had the ideas and the clay ready but it seems every time I was about to sit down and create Miss Sam was in need of my services LOL

Don't ask me how I was able to make my 4th of July collection becuase not even I am sure how I pulled it off, but I do hope you enjoy the pictures! :)
