Scavenger Hunt

Today's Scavenger Hunt Item
The item for Today is below.
Item: You are hunting for "a Valentine Box of Chocolates".
Clue: You will find it in the Afghan patterns!

I am now using images that are in the free Paper Bead Generator for the daily Scavenger Hunt Items.

The daily scavenger hunt item can only be found for one day.
I no longer keep them available to find for the whole month.

The instant prize could be either a discount or a download of something that is free for today only.



Featured Pattern

This pattern is always a free pattern.

This hair bow could be put on any size French hair clip but this one is on a clip that is 1-3/4" long. It is fast and easy to make and you could make several in an evening. I think these would sell well in a bazaar or craft fair. You can make this with pink and white or red and white yarn for Valentine's Day!

Posy Hair Bow

Every day, from now on, I will post either a members only pattern or a free pattern. It will say whether it is free or not. Once a week, I will offer 1 paid members pattern per week. It will be on Sunday Each Week. This is so I can feature current holiday related patterns, whether they are free or not.

My Plans for  2020

 I have plans for 2020! One reason I merged the JPF Crochet Club and Paper Bead Crafts and Changed the name to Just Plain Fun is because I eventually want this site to have more creative crafts added to the site such as Quilting, Sewing, Plastic Canvas and Jewelry Making. I also plan to keep adding new crochet patterns, bead sheets, paper bead projects and videos to go with most of the new projects I add to the site.  I also am working on a book with games that I have had bouncing around in my head for several years. It's time get them out of my head and into a book! More on that later! Basically, I want one web site for all of the creative endeavors I have been wanting to work on. It's easier to manage one site than more than one.

I am going to be working on these plans on my days off from my Census Job. Don't worry, the Census job is temporary, about 16 weeks total once I get going. It should be done sometime in October.

Tuesday's Tips

Latch Hook Rug Making From Scraps
If you are into rug making, you could use your ends as rug pieces. Use your latch hook and get some blank canvas and everytime you finish a project with worsted weight yarn, put the pieces right into the rug canvas as you get them. You can trim them to the right length after they are added to your rug. What a fun rug you would have after you are done!

Easy Does It Gluing
If you use glue in your projects and you need just to place a tiny dab. Use a scrap piece of paper and put a dab of glue on the paper. Then use a toothpick to apply the glue by dipping it in the glue on the paper. That way you will get better control of how much you are actually applying.
