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 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.

Oh My Goodness! I just ordered an Accuquilt Go Big Electric Die cutter! There will be an unboxing video when I get it. I have big quilting plans in the future. If you are interested in knowing about the Accuquilt die cutting system, you can check it out at this link: Accuquilt Web Site. This is a referral link. If you buy anything at their web site, with this link, you will get 20% off of your purchase and I get a discount as well!

This bead sheet is Not Free.

Beads from this bead sheet would be great in any jewelry design where you want to use the color green. They would be pretty combined with gold colored findings and clear, black, white or amber colored glass or gemstone beads.

This Week's Tip

Crafting Journal

Have you ever considered keeping a journal of all the major projects you make?? You could take pictures of the item, then put them into a photo album with the information about the item. The information to write down would be, the name of the pattern, where the pattern came from, the list of materials used in the project, how long it took to make, the date you started the project and when you finised it, and then who you gave it to and when. And the special occasion as to why it was given. If you keep all this information, then future generations will have a better sense of who you were. Keep it with the family geaneology information. I may start to do this myself for significant projects that I make and give.
