Where Creativity is Just Plain Fun

Membership is Free!

I have decided to end the Paid Memberships Program and just go with the Points Program. If you are a paid member, you signed up for a lifetime membership and are no longer paying for memberships. I am not really making any money from new memberships so it does not make sense to keep that part of my business going. Instead, membership is going to be point based. I do not plan to change this again. My income will be from sales of Paper Bead Rollers, downloads for people who don't want to be a member, books I publish in the future on Amazon, templates and template bundles, ads on the site and YouTube revenue.

All downloads, that cost points, no matter what level you are at, will now cost 20,000 points each unless otherwise noted on the individual pages.

Pre-Cut Paper Bead Strips

Pre Cut Paper Bead Strips. One size for now. Starting August 1st or earlier, I will be including a small pack of these strips in each order of a Set of Five Slotted or Set of 5 Adjustable length paper bead rollers. I have not decided on the quantity just yet. I am leaning towards 2 letter size sheets of paper or cardstock per pack.

All of the Pre-cut strips will be one size for now. I have only one die for paper bead strips. 3/8in at the wide end, 1/8in at the narrow end and 8-1/2in long.

What am I doing?

I have set aside Quilting for a Short While

I need a break from quilting for a short while. I just finished taking care of the diamond drills I bought for designing projects. It took me all week to do it. I am working on a video that shows an unboxing and the stages it takes to get them all stored into their little containers. I hope to post the video by Tuesday, July 5th at the latest. I have more diamond drills coming Wednesday but I want to get started designing the projects. I need at least another week before I get back to the Double Sided Quilt I am working on. Thank You for being patient with me.

Featured Pattern

Today's Featured Pattern

This pattern is Free on July 08th Only

This jar topper would look best slipped over a white cloth covering the top of a jar. This is my first attempt at designing one and even making one so it is probably different from any you have seen.

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 July 08th Only.

This bead sheet was made by cropping a larger fractal image and manipulating it in my painting program. I actually made this bead sheet last year sometime but never got to add it to this collection until now. The beads in the photo were made with 110lb index weight white cardstock.

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

This Week's Tip

Computer Gift Cards

You can make great gift and hang tags using your business card software and a package of business card blanks. Just follow the instructions for making business cards on your computer but use cute clipart from the internet for gift tags and take a photo of your handcrafted item and put it on a hang tag for when you sell them at bazaars and craft shows. It is less expensive this way if you only need a few and not hundreds of them.
