Hama bead bowls

I first spotted these cute multi coloured bowls on Mme Zsazsa’s blog: http://madamezsazsa.blogspot.be/2012/12/10-minuten-op-200-graden.html and have seen them pop up on pinterest and various blogs since. Ok, so I’m not very original, never claimed to be, but I did put my own spin on them. Since I don’t have any kids and I’m trying to justify playing around with hama beads at my age, I’ve chosen to go for a more grown up version.hama or perler bead bowl in neon pink

I made them in two colours and varying sizes. Neon pink as it’s definitely my favourite colour and is also very conveniently ‘in’ right now. And a solid white, to balance it out a bit. The result is pretty but smells a bit like butter. Actually, that’s not a but, I love the smell of butter. These bowls are super easy to make, and they can add a nice colourful touch to your home, why don’t you give it a try?hama or perler bead bowl in neon pink

On a break

You might have guessed by the silence and occasional tumbleweed passing by. We’ve taken a bit of a break. The weather has been exceptionally good in Belgium this year, and well, it’s just been too good to sit inside and write blogposts or edit pictures. It doesn’t mean we haven’t been busy though, and soon we’ll be back with tales of the projects we’ve been working on, and (more entertaining perhaps) the mistakes we made along the way. In the meantime, enjoy the sunshine xsunshine
