1,000,000 beads

Yes, I really mean one million beads......
A few months ago I entered a contest that Perler Beads was running and figured I would never win due to the sheer number of people entering. Well, last month I was proven wrong. I received a phone call from Perler Beads informing me that I was one of the 4 winners in their 4,000,000 bead giveaway.

Yesterday, here is what UPS delivered to my door.....

The kids couldn't wait to get the boxes inside and had to take a peek....
The kids just had to pose with all the beads on the floor.
Each bag weighs about 5 lbs and there are 28 bags, so that is 140 pounds of beads, wow, that's more than I weigh........

And of course, I couldn't forget to add a picture of the kids getting crafty with Perler Beads.

And guess what I got to do this morning ~ yup, iron a whole bunch of their creations together. The kids have been making things with these beads pretty much all day ~ they love them!
