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.

Just Plain Fun

Daily Update - October 19, 2021

What am I Doing?

Hand Sewing Case

I am working on the new Hand Stitching Sewing Case and hope to have it finished in a few days. The new case I make will look a little different and hopefully you can use your sewing machine througout the whole process. The one in the photo has a lot of hand stitching on it to put it all together so I have to make some changes as to what materials I use. I don't want the ridges around the top and bottom and I want the zipper to be different. It will be the same size and shape but made in a different way.

Since this month is October, I will be featuring all of the Halloween related patterns whether they are always free or not.

On Saturday, I celebrated my Grandson's 2nd birthday! I took the day off to be with him, my husband, my son and his wife since I could not be there for his actual birthday party. He turned 2 on October 15 but his birthday party was set for Sunday October 17.

This granny square is fun and easy to make. The popcorn stitches represent pumpkins and are made with 6 treble crochets in one stitch instead of the traditional 4 or 5 dc.

This bead sheet is Always Free.

I know this was recently featured in August but since it is October, I thought it deserved to be featured again.
This bead sheet was made with the same photo as the Straw Pile bead sheet but instead I took a portion of it and made a Kaleidoscope with it. You can combine beads made with this sheet with black, brown or red stone or glass beads for a very rustic and pretty effect.

This Week's Tip

Glue Bottles

Dispensing 2 Types of Glue

Since I make paper beads and sew, I use two different types of glue, washable and non washable. I keep the glue in 2oz bottles that are the same. So in order to be able to tell them apart, when they happen to be close to each other, I wrapped a 5.25" piece of colorfully printed duct tape on each bottle. I have one that has tie dye colored duct tape on it for the washable school glue and the other one has Zebra print that I use for All Purpose Glue.
