Scavenger Hunt

Today's Scavenger Hunt Item
The item for Today is below.
Item: You are hunting for "a Mouse with a Candy Cane".
Clue: You will find it in the Miscellaneous patterns!

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.

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.

YahooGroups is Ending!

As of December 15, 2020, Yahoo Groups is Ending!

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. .

Plastic Templates for Small Sewing Projects If you have a thermal laminator, you can use it to laminate a template made with cardstock, then cut the template out. You can use this template over and over as many times as you want! I am using one I made to make face masks for people who want them in my town. The face masks I am making now are fitted ones with adjustable elastics that goes around the ears.
