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

I have decided to shorten the daily update a little bit and will make an attempt to add other featured stuff, as well as the daily crochet pattern and bead sheet, from the site every few days and perhaps thoughts for the day, little tidbits of what is taking up my time so you will know why I haven't been adding brand new stuff to the site in a while.

What am I Doing?

I think I am done adding back to the site the pages that have been missing. If you think there are more missing pages, I want to hear about it! Just let me know by clicking on the Contact Us button. I won't know unless you tell me.

Featured Pattern

Today's Featured Pattern

I actually use this pincushion in my sewing room! Right now it has yellow ball head quilting pins in it and the shade of yellow matches the yellow in this pincushion perfectly!

Beads made from this bead sheet would be great for spring designs. You can combine them with yellow, green and white glass beads for a fresh look!

Mini Organizer

Today's Project

This Mini Organizer is made with Priority Mail Boxes, Duct Tape and Double Sided Tape! The little compartments are just the right size to fit the little containers that you can find in Smart Ones Lasagna Florentine frozen dinners or at least you could at the time I wrote this project!

This Week's Tip

Rotary Cutting Paper Bead Strips & Fabric

If you use a rotary cutter, quilt ruler and cutting mat to cut your paper into strips for making paper beads, add a 4-5 pound weight to the top of your ruler to help keep it's place while using the rotary cutter. The weight will help keep the ruler in place. I also use mine when I am cutting fabric!
