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.

Daily Update - December 7, 2021

What am I Doing?

Quilt as You Piece Block

I am working on a series of Quilt Block Videos done in the Quilt as You Piece method. When I am done, there should be 30 quilt blocks that I will then put together with sashing in between the blocks. I do plan to make a video of putting the quilt together. This is the primary way I make quilts.


The quilt in the photo is the front of the quilt block, the back is the same pattern, just different fabrics. The patterns and materials list are on the site as well, the same day I post the video I make for each block. The very first block, Five Strip Rail Fence is free for everyone, no points needed and no membership needed. Most of the rest of the blocks for this quilt will be for Members. You can get them with points or for $1.99 each or as a Gold member, you will not need to redeem points or pay anything for the PDF files.

I know you are thinking to yourself that you have seen this candle before and you may have even made one that is similar. Well the idea for this candle is not mine but the pattern is. I am sure I could come up with other looks based on this basic construction. So enjoy!!!

This Week's Tip

Christmas Card Gift Tags

I am sure you have heard this one before. Use your old Christmas cards as gift tags this year. Just use cookie cutters to cut the front of the cards into fun shapes, punch a hole in the top, use colorful 1/8" wide ribbon for hanging and presto! A great gift tag! Better yet! Get your kids on the action of making these gift tags. You could make them while eating holiday sweets and drinking hot chocolate. What a fun time this would be!
