Just Plain Fun

Daily Update - January 22, 2023

Membership is Free!

The December Raffle is going to be the last one for now. The same people seem to be winning over and over again. I am going to come up with a different way to run a raffle in the future so it is fair to everyone.

The Last Raffle Winner

Pre-Cut Paper Bead Strips

Pre Cut Paper Bead Strips. One size for now. For every order over $35.00, I will include a small packet of paper bead strips that are 3/8" at the wide end, 1/8" at the narrow end and up to 8-1/2" long. Orders have to be for items that I actually will send you through the postal mail myself. Items such as Slotted paper bead rollers, adjustable length paper bead rollers, double hole paper bead rollers, eyelet setters and laminated templates. If you order a roller or tool that is under $35.00 and the order also includes digital files at Etsy, and the total order is over $35.00, you will also get the sample packet of strips.

In the future, I hope to find a source of paper I can use to offer you for sale at a reasonable price and so you can pick and choose which print you want.

What am I doing?

Quilt Project Continues Soon

Featured Pattern

Today's Featured Pattern

This pattern is Free on January 22nd Only

This is just the right size for a tight fit onto a 12oz soda can. You can make it longer for taller cans by just adding a few rounds. It is fast and easy to make and is very thick.

Ribbed Can Cozy

Now the PDF file for patterns that are not normally free are also available for free download for one day only.

Over time, as I feature a pattern each day, when it is no longer free, I will make the HTML page available to anyone who is registered on the site (Not just Gold members.) This will take time, there are over 600 Gold Member patterns on the site. I am changing them to Registered Member patterns one at a time. The PDF file of each pattern will be available for points.

From now on, new patterns, projects and printables I add to the site will still be gold level pages until they are over 2 years old. This keeps things fair to the members who actually paid for membership.

Featured Bead Sheet

Today's Featured Bead Sheet

This bead sheet is Free on January 22nd Only.

This was a doodle that I manipulated in Paint Shop Pro then imported into Microsoft Publisher 363. It would be a great bead sheet to use for spring and summer beads!

Now the PDF file is also available for free download for one day only.

This Week's Tip

Pretty Wood Collages

Keep some old magazines for kids to use to cut out pretty pictures and make collages with them gluing them to sanded pre made wood plaques then seal the collage with several coats of clear varnish. You will have a treasure that your kids made for years to come. During the holidays you could also do the same on wooden cut outs for Christmas Ornaments.
