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.

Pre-Cut Paper Bead Strips

Pre Cut Paper Bead Strips. One size for now. More information soon. I am waiting on a new machine for the die I bought. The electric one does not like my new die. So one with a crank, The Accuquilt Go will work for the paper bead die I got custom made for me. I wasted quite a few sheets of paper and cardstock trying to get the electric one to accept my new die. It kept spitting it out backwards. So I have ordered a new crank machine so it will have no choice but to let it go through. I cannot wait to start offering Pre-cut strips.

All of the Pre-cut strips will be one size for now. I have only one die for paper bead strips. 3/8in at the wide end, 1/8in at the narrow end and 8箠n long. If they sell well, I will order another die. Reply to the email or contact me and let me know what you think!

What am I doing?

I have set aside Quilting for a Short While

I need a break from quilting for a short while. I am thinking a week or two. Right now I am working on a beginner Diamond Painting project and learning about this great craft. I have known about it for a few years and wanted to try it. I did not want to make a big painting so I put it off until now. Now that there are hundreds of small projects out there, and there is a way I can design some myself, I bought design software and plan to design small projects that can be completed in a sitting. Things like ornaments, pendants, suncatchers and other very small items that can be decorated with the tiny, colorful "diamonds". I am making a video showing my very first project. I hope to get it done and uploaded by Monday. This first project is not my design. It was a kit. My hope is to design a project once per week along with the sewing, paper bead making and any other craft that I think you will enjoy.

Featured Pattern

Today's Featured Pattern

This pattern is Free on July 03rd Only

This fingertip towel is topped with rows of shells that decrease with every row until you reach the mile-a-minute like hanging strap at the top. It is a fast and easy project that would make a great gift for anyone.

Now the PDF file for patterns that are not normally free are also available for free download for one day only.

Over time, as I feature a pattern each day, when it is no longer free, I will make the HTML page available to anyone who is registered on the site (Not just Gold members.) This will take time, there are over 600 Gold Member patterns on the site. I am changing them to Registered Member patterns one at a time. The PDF file of each pattern will be available for points.

From now on, new patterns, projects and printables I add to the site will still be gold level pages until they are over 2 years old. This keeps things fair to the members who actually paid for membership.

This Week's Tip

Kid Crochet

Another use for large scraps of yarn, the type that are long enough to make actual things with, is to give it to your kid who is just learning how to crochet. That way, your child will have a practice ball of yarn to use and he/she can frog it as many times as needed without ruining a new skein of yarn.
