Hama Bead Inspiration!

I was looking through Hama (perler) Bead designs a few days ago and just as I couldn’t find anything cute or interesting and was about to turn off the tab, I saw something so cool which I just fell in love with and it really inspired me to get out my Hama Beads!

I really love these baskets and I would have probably already made them by now but unfortunately, I can’t find a tutorial anywhere! It’s so disappointing because I really love them :( But I’m still looking. And if I DO find a tutorial and if I DO get all of the materials that are needed and if I DO make it, then InshaAllah I’ll take a picture of it and post it as soon as I can :D

Also, I can see that this is Hama-bead weaving, not placing the beads on the peg-board and ironing them flat! So it might be a tiny bit trickier, but I will still give it a go, InshaAllah. And I found some really cute Hama-Bead bracelets as well. They look really colorful and stylish too! I’m sure their much easier so I think I might try one of them first, to get more confident ;) Thank you for reading and please don’t hesitate to leave any comments!

My Ramadhan Painting!

Assalamu Alaikum!

I wanted to say that a couple of weeks ago there was a competition at my madrassah so we all had to draw something that was Ramadhan-related. I decided to paint my picture too. It came out really pretty Alhamdulillah.

Here is my painting:

Do you like it? I hope you do! My mum gave me a few ideas and my sister taught me some painting techniques on a separate paper and I drew it out and painted it by myself. I really loved the result. So I handed it in the next day and…… guess what? I won! I am very happy, alhamdulillah. I really enjoyed painting this picture and I would like do do more paintings in the near future, InshaAllah!  Well, that’s all for today!

Please don’t hesitate to leave a comment and thank you for reading!

Desk Tour!

Assalamu Alaikum!

I am very excited to announce that I have finally fixed up my desk. So I decided to do a desk tour!

This is a photo of the whole desk. As you can see, I love sticking things on my wall :)

On the left of my desk is my drawing station. With all my notebooks, stationary, cards and my name plate! I like playing scrabble with my family <3 Behind my scrabble name plate is my small little box which has some random bits and bobs.

IMG_6991Next to my drawing station are my favourite shells which I put in the Hama bead box which I made back in England. I couldn’t fit all of my shells in it, I have way too many :[

IMG_6985And on the right of my desk I have my Harumika mannequins and my vintage box which I keep all my fabrics in. On top of my box is my plant that gives a little greenery to my desk. Next to it is my little hearty frame which  my friend gave me as a present.

IMG_6996I also have my most favorite Hama bead designs standing on different parts of my desk. I love them so much and they brighten up my desk too! I really like Hama beading but it’s much more fun to do it with friends so I don’t do it every single day.

IMG_6993And last is my wall. I love sticking things on my wall. There is a ‘Something Sweet’ poster which was given to me & Khadija as an Eid present from my friend, Fatima. And a cupcake card which is also from my friend Fatima. There are other cards on my wall too + a random picture of a peacock which I drew a while ago when I was bored. And a rainbow snowflake!
IMG_6994 There is my drawing of a girl in a beautiful garden full of flowers and my other drawing of just a normal girl with a red dress! Oh, and the Confetti Tassels are made by Khadija. I really do recommend you read her blog!

So that’s it! Please don’t hesitate to leave a comment and tell me what you think in the comments! I hope you enjoyed my desk tour.
P.S. In the last picture, my drawing is not showing properly because it’s only been drawn with a pencil. But I will do another post of my drawings so you’ll see it clearer InshaAllah :D

Wassalamu Alaikum,
Habiba ;P
