I added a lantern to the Other Crafts page and finished adding descriptions to all of my gallery pages. Now I'm working on the individual card details. I hope you find them useful.
The Tea Bag Tile Page Generator for web images is back. Unfortunately, the generator for images stored on your PC still doesn't work, so I have removed it.
I added several new round, square and octagon shaped tiles to the Tea Bag Tiles page.
I finished yet another site-overhaul. It has a completely different look this time. If you have been here before you will notice several changes. I got rid of the drop-down menus because they were kind of a pain to maintain and I think they were clumsy to navigate. Hopefully navigation is a little more intuitive now. If you hate the new menus, please let me know. Clicking on a card thumbnail when you are in the galleries will now open a larger image with links to instructions as well as card details if there are any. I will be adding more details to the cards as time allows. The tile pages have been completely re-done since the old ones were not compatible with the newer browsers. It will also make it much easier for me to add new tiles as I make them. I hope you like the new look.
I added a new pattern for a Night and Day quilt block card to the Iris Folding Patterns page. The card was also added to the Iris Folding page in the technique gallery page.
I just finished a complete code overhaul of the site. You will find many, many more cards in the card galleries including several new categories, so be sure to take a look. If you find any broken links, please let me know by sending an e-mail to jheadric@msn.com. Be sure to include the site name (Handcrafted Greetings) in the subject line.

I've been having intermittent problems with my blog for several weeks now, so I am removing it from the menu.

I removed the punch workshop. Back in the beginning of 2006, Christine Sherriff, the author of the workshop, contacted me asking if I would post her workshop, primarily so that members of my MSN group would have access to it. Since the workshop files were quite large and the space on my MSN account was limited, we agreed that the workshop would be hosted here on my site rather than in the group. I recently closed my MSN group. I have attempted to contact Christine to ask permission to continue to host her workshop, but I have not received a response. It is for this reason that I removed the workshop. I do intend to eventually replace it with something of my own.
