About New Updates
On February 17, 2023, I lost everything that was on the site. I made the descision to rebuild the site from scratch and build it the way I used to do it back before 2018 when I moved the site to a new server. If you were a member before February 17, 2023 and you have not signed back up yet, you will have to sign back up as if you never were a member before. This time, memberships are free and they are point based. I am never going to charge for memberships again.
Membership Points Accounts Are Back
Coming in January 2024: You will be able redeem points on stuff I would send to you through the mail. Anything I can send that weighs less than a pound, that I have in my stuff, I will offer for points. No cost to you, not even postage. There will also be pre-cut fabrics available for points. I have so much fabric, I will never use, I thought I would share it with my site visitors. I may also start making bracelets again to offer for points. That way, I hope to have something that people would want. I am also into 3D printing and have some ideas there as well. This will only be offered to people in the USA.
I reserve the right to make future Brand New Patterns and Projects, I add to the site, only available for purchase through paypal.
Paper bead templates, which I will be uploading in 2023 - 2024, for the most part, will not be free. They will be available at Etsy as they are now, in bundles. I will make one template out of each machine and printable, but not the universal bundle free so you can see how they work. You can download just one sample of the universal templates so you can see how they work.
Even though this is what I do for a living, I will no longer be offering paid memberships, ever. It's just not worth the effort for what little income I got. My income will be from the paper back books, kindle books, paper bead tools, ad income from Google and YouTube, paper bead templates, and anything I sell on Etsy and Amazon.
Not sure if you noticed, the only pop up thing you may see on this site will be the notice for you to sign up for my Daily Updates email messages. I don't like pop-up ads, as I am sure you don't like them either, so I got rid of them. I also don't like what Google calls auto ads, where they choose where the ads are located on the site. So I have hard coded the ads on the left and right side of the page and at the top of the main content area, just under the navigation bar. One more thing, if you access my site on a mobile phone or other mobile device, you will get two ads, one ad below the navigation at the top and one ad at the bottom, just above the footer of the page. I really hate those pop-ups that get in the way of being able to use a site easily.
