The design theme this week is Swedish Fika. Fika is a coffee and cake break, but is much more than that. Fika is a state of mind. An attitude and an important part of Swedish culture. It is considered almost essential to make time for fika every day. And often, several times a day. It means making time for friends and colleagues to share a cup of coffee (or tea) and a little something to eat.
This design came together fairly quickly. A nice surprise. I delayed starting, sure that I could not pull it off. Doubting myself.
I had fun creating the treats and Latte. For the dishware I used a pattern I created a few years ago. It has the colors of the Swedish flag and seemed a perfect fit.
I added shadows and highlights to add dimension to the treats, and china. That took some finagling, but was fun to do.
Voting is open now through the 27th. Thanks so much for taking a look. 🙂

I am so grateful I have had the energy to take part in the design challenges while also painting each day for the 30-Day Creative Gathering. I’ve had to sneak in a nap a few times, but I am managing. 😉😉🙏
