Scavenger Hunt

I hope you are enjoying the Scavenger Hunt!
The item for Friday, March 10, 2017 is below. Scavenger Hunt item

Item: You are hunting for the "Irish Pineapple Filet Doily".
Clue: You will find it in the Bookmark patterns.

Don't forget to check the download pages only.
It will not be on any of the actual pattern pages.

Today's Featured Pattern!

Today's Featured Pattern! Today's Featured Pattern' is:
"Anson Square"

This granny square is fast to make and would be great made into a large afghan made of scraps.

All of the patterns on this site are free! Enjoy! Starting sometime in 2017, I will start adding other designer's patterns to the site. If you would like for me to visit a site to pick a few free patterns from, let me know. The main criteria, for me to add the pattern to my database, is there has to be a photo of the project, an actual pattern page as well as a downloadable PDF file.

Crafty Hacks of the Day

I thought I would put in random craft related tips every day so I am not limited to just crochet and paper beads. I will try to come up with 2 craft related tips per day. By the way, I have been crocheting and crafting since the age of 5! I have done many different types of crafts over the years. Not just crochet, knitting and paper beads.

Picking up Sewing Pins

If you have a magnetic bingo chip wand, use it to pick up sewing pins! If you don't have one, make one by gluing strip magnets to both sides of a tongue dipressor and wrap the whole thing with colorful packing tape.

Save Your Fingers

Use a pair of needle nose pliers to hold a nail when pounding it with a hammer.


Web Site Future Plans

In the new year, I will be making both of my sites work together for the points system. The newsletter I send out every day will have more of a mixture of paper beads and crochet. The paper bead site will have it's own points program but you will be able to go into your points account on the paper bead side and combine your points with those on your jpfun.com site. You will have to make sure you have the same username on both sites in order for it to work. I will be adding the scavenger hunt, Pawprint tracker and 1000 point tracker to the paper bead site and points that are earned on the paper bead site will be added to points on the jpfun site. In the future, not only will you be able to use the points to pay for entries in the weekly raffle, but you will also be able to get discounts on items I plan to offer in the future. I will put together a little online store. The discounts will be applied when you use points up to a 50% discount on some items. Sometimes the discount will be for free shipping if I don't already offer free shipping on a given item. Most of the items I will offer will be paper bead related or made with paper beads. I have to learn a few things first on the programming end of things on how to make the 2 websites work together so be patient. This will happen. It won't be automatic, you will have to do some clicking on both sites but the points you earn on both sites will be usable on the jpfun.com site.


Latest Poll Question

I have been making Paper Bead Coloring Books in Paper Back Form.

Weekly Surprise Pack

Prizes go out in the Mail the Monday after the Sunday the winner is chosen unless there is a Monday holiday, then it will go out on Tuesday.
Weekly Surprise Pack

The prize, for the next few weeks, or months, the prize will be a surprise pack. It will be something from my inventory for the craft fairs I participated in. I have decided I am no longer going to participate in any craft fair since the return on my time and money investment is not worth it. So from now on, when I make stuff for YouTube videos, the items I make multiples of, for the sake of the video, will be used as prizes, as well as other stuff I make, or have in my stash that I don't need anymore. It may even also contain a split pin paper bead roller with a wooden handle of a random size. I have discontinued the wood handle split pin paper bead rollers and I am working on clearing them out. If you don't want to wait to win one, you can purchase them on Amazon.com individually.

Latest Updated Pattern

My Little Tote

My Little Tote

Originally designed in July of 2005, the My Little Tote is the latest pattern I have updated! What I did to it was, I did not have the original photo on my computer but I did have the original tote bag in storage so I just took a new photo of it. The photo is bigger, has a white background and is more clear. I also updated the pdf file that goes with it!

Most of the future patterns that I will be updating, will be those in the Granny Square category. I am getting them ready to publish into a paperback book. Hopefully I will have them all updated and ready for the book by October 1. I don't have all of the actual granny squares I made nor do I have the original photos so I have to make them and take fresh photos of almost all of them.
