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. For every order over $35.00, I will include a small packet of paper bead strips that are 3/8" at the wide end, 1/8" at the narrow end and up to 8-1/2" long. Orders have to be for items that I actually will send you through the postal mail myself. Items such as Slotted paper bead rollers, adjustable length paper bead rollers, double hole paper bead rollers, eyelet setters and laminated templates. If you order a roller or tool that is under $35.00 and the order also includes digital files at Etsy, and the total order is over $35.00, you will also get the sample packet of strips.
In the future, I hope to find a source of paper I can use to offer you for sale at a reasonable price and so you can pick and choose which print you want.
What am I doing?
Doing some 3D Printing!
I bought myself a 3D printer. Why you ask? Well let me tell you why! It is for the adjustable length paper bead rollers. I am having trouble getting some of the supplies I use to make them. Also making them is very time consuming, time that can be better spent making videos and designing new projects. I will be making the stabilizer beads and other parts I have to make by hand now that you don't see that make the bead rollers adjustable. The 3D Printer will make them for me. In fact, I bought 2 of them so I can get twice as many parts made in the same amount of time. This was a fairly large investment but it should help me be able to keep the prices of the bead rollers where they are and also save me time.
This pattern is Free on September 20nd Only
This wide beaded bracelet would make a great addition to any wardrobe. It is has an elegant as well as a fun look and would look great with any style. The black background sets off the pearlized black beads beautifully.
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.
Featured Bead Sheet
This bead sheet is Free on September 20nd Only.
Beads made from this bead sheet would be great for spring designs combined with pastel colored pearls or clear crystal faceted beads!
Get yourself a few of those plastic pumpkins and other trick or treat plastic pails. You know, the purple, orange and green ones that you can trick or treat with. Put a short string of lights in each one along your walk way or up your stairs to your front door and light the way for the trick or treaters in a fun and festive way. I did this the first year we were in our new house back in 2002 and we had parents taking pictures of them!
