Food-like Prompts

Hi,
On Every Inchie Monday this week the keyword is Plum. I thought of 'plum sum' and that's how I ended up with the logo for Crown Casino, which is right here in Melbourne.



And the Twinchie keyword is Chillies.

  1. More inspired thinking Zoe and the crown looks fab. Loving your chilli too - how you cut out that tiny aperture I can't imagine.

    1. :) Thank you Lisette! Twinchies are not too small, so it's possible. Couldn't do it on an inchie, no way.

    1. I don't like plums much, so I immediately thought of a hefty amount of cash. Do you know, one version of the etymology is that a couple hundred years ago, 1,000 pounds was nicknamed plum..... and so it goes.

    1. Thank you so much! Not origami (I actually don't like that much), but iris folding. But, yes, for all intent and purposes, paper craft.

  6. I love learning new things. I had to look up plum as English money slang (and there is actually a connection to 'little jack horner' - my iinchie). Don't you just love the English language? - brilliant idea. You chilli is sumptuous..

  7. Would have never known about the plum money; so much more enticing than a "stack" (of "Benjamins," or $100 bills, equal to $1000). The English language can be so colorful!

    1. Oh there are some gorgeous nicknames for cash around the world.

  8. Your chilli is quite a little piece of art. And your inchie is great. Who will do something different from the fruit either?

  9. I'm glad you explained "plum sum" as I'd never heard that phrase. So, that was a fun take on Plum! And that chili folding is amazing!

    1. Hi Annette! Thanks! For iris folding...... get ready for it....... foil paper. I've seen it referred to as florist foil. You should look up iris folding, it's ridiculously easy and you most likely have everything you need for it already.
