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.

To Stiffen
Stuff head with a small amount of polyester fiberfill. Dip angel up to her neck into fabric stiffener. cover styrofoam with plasic wrap. Place angel's skirt over cone to shape skirt. Stiff bodice and wings with plastic wrap to help keep it's shape while drying. Make sure to completely saturate the whole angel except for head. Since the head is stuffed, you do not need to stiffen it. Allow the angel to dry overnight. When completely dry, attach gold thread to top of head to form a loop. This is the hanger.
