Slightly Puzzled

Slightly Puzzled

What's your name?
Monica Elisa Herrera

Where are you from?
Los Angeles, CA, USA

When did you start puzzling?
I've always puzzled casually but didn't become obsessed until about 3 years ago. I became the caregiver for my grandparents and needed something to occupy me during their quiet time. My grandparents have been puzzlers forever so I finally decided to join the fun!

What is your favorite piece count and why?
I love them all but I think 500 is my favorite because I get that completed puzzle satisfaction feeling much quicker than a 1000 piece puzzle.

What is your favorite type of art?
I love whimsical, fantastical, colorful...and cats.

What makes you keep puzzling and how often do you puzzle?
I puzzle almost every single day. I work on 1 puzzle during the day at my grandparents house and 1 puzzle at home in the evening. I keep puzzling because it brings me joy and relaxation and there are so many amazing new puzzles being released every day!

What is your go to drink/snack when you puzzle?
Water and a piece of chocolate

Tell us a little bit about your other joys.
My 3 cats (Caterina, James, and Lucy) are my little joys. They bring me happiness and smiles every day. I also love classic film, musical theatre and reading.
