Please welcome Maria Blasquez Iborra from Spain to Cocoa Daisy this month! We found Maria through our Design Team call last fall and thought her style was something we had to see again! We had a slight delay in shipping, so we’ll let you know on social media once we have her gallery ready to share!
Until then, please get to know Maria a little better through our blog and her social media sites!
Hello everyone!!! I’m thrilled to have chosen as April guest design! I’m so excited to have this opportunity!!!!
My name is Maria and I’m 43 years old. I live in Barcelona, in a little apartment with my cute cat Mimí. I’m musician, I’m singer and piano player. I’ve been playing piano since I was eight. Nowadays I’m music teacher in a school in Barcelona.
I discovered scrap 8 years ago and now I can affirm: I’m scrapalcoholic!!!!! In fact, I like to spend as much time as I have, with my papers, stamps, inks, etc!!! My favorite projects are LO and mini albums and lately I enjoy decorating my Planner too!!!
I love working with bright colors and mixing different techniques, lots of inks, watercolors, medium,… I enjoy discovering new products. Besides, I love writting in my blog, where you can find lots of scrapbooking…and recently opened my youtube channel!
1. When is your most creative time?
I like to steal hours of sleep so I can scrap even more, although on weekends I always find the time.
2. How do you unwind?
I like to go out for a walk and grab a coffee without watching the clock, listening to music and getting my hands into a good book with my cat Mimi on my legs.
3. If you were in a Rock N’ Roll band, what would your job be?
I guess I would probably be at the musical keyboard, that’s my thing!
4. What is your guilty pleasure?
Ice cream, especially tiramisu, I could have it all year though
5. If your life was a movie, what actress would play you?
I would love to play Meryl Streep, she’s versatile and has really interesting roles.
6. What’s your favorite accessory?
My earrings, they’re my favourite accessory, I never go out without them. I love to match them with my clothes.
7. If your life were a novel, what would the title be?
It would probably be something similar to my blog, Maria and my favourite things, all packed with the things I love most.
8. What was your first job and how did you get it?
I used to work in a decoration shop, I even got to decorate the windows!
9. Share three of your bucket list items with us.
Travel to Japan, visit New York again and get a tattoo.
10. What is “dressed up” for you?
I don’t like to dress up much, the day I get to dress more nicely, it’s skirt and shoes, I spend time getting my curls in order and some eyeliner and I’m done.
