Frida Perler Bead Pattern from @CREATIFINY

Posted by Emily Sacharow on

One of our awesome previous swap participants made an incredible original perler bead design of Frida Kahlo for last year's swap and we knew it was something we wanted to share! She, incredibly, agreed to share the pattern with us in honor of the block party! Thanks to @CREATIFINY for all the info shared below! Unfamiliar with perler beads? Check this tutorial HERE. When working with this pattern, mini size beads make the finished product about the size of your palm and regular beads will make Frida's face bigger than your hand.

Blog Block Party: Quince Margarita Recipe

Posted by Emily Sacharow on

Hey, it's me again with my first original post as part of the block party! I'm here to share a recipe of a fun drink I made.
