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.

Laminated Cutting Guides! Learn about the brand new paper bead templates! These templates are designed for use with Guillotine cutters! They are laminated so they will last a very long time and you tape them down to the bed of the cutter and you lay your paper on top of them and move the paper down the template as you cut each strip.

Tuesday's Tip

Make it Stiff  For stiffening stuff:
 I just bought this wonderful stuff from Wal-Mart called Stiffen Stuff. It works great and you can control how stiff you want something by adding more coats of it as needed. It comes in a pump spray bottle and you can get 32 oz refill bottles for the pump bottle. You can even dry it in the microwave. There is a website you can go to to learn more about it. http://www.beacon1.com I used it for the skirt of the angel and it holds up very well. I used only two applications and it is able to hold it's shape but does have some give to it. You cannot even tell that there is stiffener in it. I really love the stuff. For something a basket though, you may want to keep adding coats of it until it is as stiff as you want it.
