Giveaway No 8 Hama beads



On April fifth my humble little blog was seven years old. Seven years of sharing the ups and downs of life, the growth of my family from two grandchildren to seven not to mention a house move and the demise of two pets.

So by way of celebration I am planning on running a series of competitions. Some of the prizes I am providing myself and some have generously been donated by various companies. So I have ten prizes so will run one every third days to spread them out over the month.

Today's giveaway is from Hama Beads. We are lovers of Hama Beads and have been using them for a number of years now.
 Fifi has made some great basic items

a butterfly

tree and parrot 
and I made her a picture for her wall. This measured approx 18 inches by 2 ft.

a unicorn mounted on hardboard, pearlescent card and edged with sticky ribbon. 


Hama Beads are small, coloured, craft beads that can be used in various ways to create wonderful designs and beautiful pieces of art. Visit our How To page to find out how to use them.
They are available in three different size ranges – Midi, Maxi and Mini – for all ages and abilities so they can be enjoyed by everyone; male, female, young and old.
The recommended ages below are to be used only as a guide. Suitability always depends on the individual’s ability.
Please note that beads and pegboards from different size ranges are not compatible with each other.

Hama beads are offering a Pirate Art set.

Approximately 1,100 assorted Midi Hama Beads and a Large Heart Pegboard. Follow designs on the packaging to create a pirate, skull, anchor, heart and arrow, and love scroll - ideal for Halloween! Also includes Ironing Paper and instructions.
