A Trip Down Memory Lane


Last weekend my roommate Amy and I were doing a little thrifting when we came upon two bags of Perler beads. I probably wouldn't have taken a second look at them except my coworker and I had recently been discussing them so I was a bit nostalgic. 


We bought the bags and a couple of the little pegboards and spent Saturday afternoon watching old VHS tapes, drinking homemade sangria and crafting with our Perler beads. What could be nicer than that?

    1. Thanks, Kayla! I definitely thought I was pretty crafty too. I also remember how long they would take when I was a kid so I was always really proud of them, haha.
