Scavenger Hunt

Today's Scavenger Hunt Item
The item for Today is below.
Item: You are hunting for "a Haunted House with Bats"
Clue: You will find it in the Dishcloth 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.

Featured Pattern

This pattern is  Not  Free.

This ghost pattern is fast and easy to make. It is made with Baby Pompadour yarn that has a shiny strand going through it. If you cannot find this type of yarn, any baby weight white yarn will do.

Spider Web Ghost

From now on, I will featured either free or for members patterns. The members patterns will not be free but they will 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.

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.

Tuesday's Tips

Printing onto Paper Bags! Did you know you can print onto brown paper bags? You can! Just cut them down to the size you need for your printer and put them into the paper tray! I mainly have printed on the larger grocery bags we get from our local grocery store. I just cut them to the 8½" x 11" size for my inkjet printer and it works!

Don't Throw Away Waste Beads! Don't throw away your waste beads, you know, the beads at each end of your fishing line when you are glazing your beads. The beads that catch the extra glaze. Or beads that don't end up great. Put them into a jar and save them for other craft projects. You can make wall hangings by gluing them onto a backer board, like in a mosaic fashion and make some great looking wall art!
