Scavenger Hunt

Today's Scavenger Hunt Item
The item for Today is below.
Item: You are hunting for "a Pretty Unicorn".
Clue: You will find it in the Coaster or Motif patterns!
Starting February 1st, I will be including any page on this site as a page to search for the Scavenger Hunt items. Not just the crochet patterns. When that starts, you will be searching for the Scavenger Hunt item just for the 1000 points secret code that you can use to get 1000 points with for finding that day's item. That will be the only reward. The clue will be related to the page that you will find it on.

I am now using images that are in either of the 2 Paper Bead Generators, or a thumbnail image of a pattern relevant to the current time period, for the daily Scavenger Hunt Items.

The daily scavenger hunt item can only be found for one day.

The instant prize is access to a Gold Members Only crochet pattern that is free for today only for everyone! The pdf file is not part of the prize.

 The Points Program Has Started!

A special code has been placed under this image, on the page that will have the scavenger hunt item on it. Sign up for a Free Points Account and you can claim 1000 points for finding today's item! you can also get free access to the page that it is on! As of August 5, 2020, I have fixed the problem of not being able to access the pattern page that the link goes to if you are not a gold member. Now anyone who finds the scavenger hunt item, member or not can access the pattern page for one day.  Not the PDF though.

Featured Pattern

Today's Featured Pattern

This pattern is  Not Free!

I know it is not Christmas any more but why not make this now and get started early on next years holiday season! This ball ornament is fairly simple to make and is all one piece. You can complete it in an evening! Actually you could make 2 or 3 in an evening!

Lacy Ball Ornament

Starting February 1st, 2021, every single pattern I feature will be free. If they are already free, they will stay free. If they are currently for Gold Members Only, they will be free for one day only.   The Gold Members Only patterns will then be available for either $1.99 or for 19,900 points for those who have a free points account. They will always be available to Gold Members without having to redeem points. The members only pdf files for the crochet patterns will never be available for free for non Gold Members.

Brand New Cutting Guides

 

Introducing the Laminated Paper Bead Cutting Guides

All of the Sets I will offer have been added to the site!
Seriously folks! This is what I use now for cutting all of my strips! So fast and Easy! These are meant to work with guillotine paper cutters. You tape it down using painters tape and it stays in place while you move the paper down the sheet while cutting your strips. Really, it make cutting strips even faster than using an electronic cutting machine! Really!

It's Back! A Beaded Magnet Project!

Do you remember this? It hasn't been on the site for several years!

These magnets are made with purchased Christmas Stickers, cardboard and self laminating sheets. A sweet little crystal charm to match has been added to the bottom! These would make great little stocking stuffers for everyone on your list! I made 100 of these magnets for a craft fair.

Featured Bead Sheet



Pretty Unicorn

Starting February 1st, 2021, I will start making most of the Bead Sheets for Gold Members Only. I will also start to add brand new single bead sheets. Each day, when I feature a bead sheet, the bead sheet may be made for Gold Members Only the next day. I will let you know if that particular bead sheet will be free always or for Gold Members Only from the next day on. I also plan to take the Bead sheet bundles down and splitting them up to add more single bead sheets with them.

This Bead Sheet Bundle is not free but it is  only $1.99 for 5 bead sheets!
If you are a Gold member, you can download the bundle for free.

YahooGroups Has Ended!

As of December 15, 2020, Yahoo Groups Has Ended!

Yahoo sent announced they will be ending their YahooGroups part of their services so I have found a new mailing list service to send my daily messages to.

If you are subscribed at YahooGroups to receive the daily messages, I have already automatically added you to that new list server. If you want to keep receiving my daily messages, letting you know the newsletter is ready, you don't need to do anything. If you no longer want the daily messages sent to your email address, there is an unsubscribe link at the bottom of each message I will be sending out.  The online newsletter format will stay the same, there will just be more information in the daily message I send out by email to the list.

If you are not getting daily messages and you want them, I have added the sign up form in the JPFun News & Updates section to every page on the site. Look under the Social Media buttons for the link. .

Tuesday's Tip

Recycle Food Boxes!:Recycle boxes that food comes in such as cereal and crackers. Use them to wrap your hand made gifts in. If you want to, you can even paint them and make them look attractive. I do this every year and it makes for good conversation. Plus when they are decorated, they can be reused more than once. Most cereal boxes are just the right size for hats and mittens.
