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.

What am I Doing?

Quilt as You Piece Block

I am taking a short break from making the quilt videos while I get some Christmas and inventory stuff done. I will get back to the videos once I am finished with my Christmas stuff that has to be done. Friday, December 10, I spent the day making stabilizer beads and 8 little drawstring bags for a game, with a wooden game board, I developed as gifts for a few family members. Perhaps I will show the game I came up with and offer instructions on how to first make the game, then play it. The game board is just a piece of 8"x8" wood, with 144 holes drilled into it, in a 12x12 grid pattern. It uses a standard deck of cards, 2 six sided dice, 4 hand made player pieces, and 22 cribbage pegs, 2 of which are made of metal. Curious? Let me know if you want to know more. It is a game my husband and I are making together.

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.

This Week's Tip

Coffee Filter Angels

You can make a very cute angel ornament for any occasion such as weddings, Easter, Christmas etc... by using 3 coffee filters. Actually if you use a cotton ball torn in half for the head then you only need to use 2 coffee filters. 1. Scrunch up one coffee filter to make a small ball.2. Place the ball inside the center of the 2nd coffee filter and form a neck just under the ball by pinching the coffee filter around it. Then wrap a piece of plain transparent tape around the neck. Flair out the skirt. 3. Fold the 3rd coffee filter in half then accordion fold it in the center to form the wings. Then glue the wings to the back.
