Friday Fun

Yesterday was the 15th which mean that the entries for November's Monthly Painters Challenge were revealed! This month's secret topic was "Fabric Design". I doodled away on some canvas sheets, until I came up with this design (see below) inspired by retro flowers and a tea party theme! It's kind of a weird shape - mainly because I painted an odd shaped background and worked from there. I kind of like it though because it's gives it a "spilled tea stain" type of feel. It's not for sale at the moment, but I'm thinking of creating something out of it in the future...some fabric perhaps?

My entry for November's Monthly Painters Challenge "Fabric Design": "Tea Party Fabric Swatch
Today is Friday which means I have Miss 3 at home running around, and this afternoon I decided to put the paints aside and we made some "Peppermint Cherry Christmas Balls"! They're similar to the traditional rum balls - but they're made from chocolate biscuits, cherry ripe and peppermint crisp bars! Yum! :)

Miss 3 was pretty excited!

They're easy peasy to make and good to make with kids because there's no cooking involved - just mix them up and leave them to set for a few minutes in the fridge.

The end result!

Also today, I've been featured on Maddablings blog with a special interview! Check it out here:

Happy Friday everyone! :)



  1. Great Post Jaz! Love the MPC painting, It certainly would make an excellent fabric design. The balls look delish. I popped over to see the interview, nice one.

  2. I love this design! The teacups are so cleverly woven in that you don't notice them at first. When you spot them, it's like a special treat. I love designs like that!

    Plus, I love, love, love pink!
