Just Plain Fun News

I know I haven't really added anything new for quite a while. I have been busy making paper bead roller inventory and taking care of quilting fabric, I recently bought from a dear friend's family, that she left behind, after she passed away a couple of years ago. So far I have documented and folded over 1000 yards. Yes, over one thousand! I am planning to add a quilting section to the site. Not sure if any of you know this, but I have known how to make quilts since the late 1970's. I just haven't done it since 1997 until 2018.

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

Non Stick Toothpicks

If you like to brush your glaze on your paper beads but your beads get stuck to your toothpick or what ever you are using to hold your beads while brushing on the glaze, try applying chapstick or vaseline jelly on your picks before sticking your bead on the end. When your beads are dry, your beads will slide right off. I do this when I coat my paper beads with 2 part epoxy resin. Really works well!
