There are times such as this when I wish I never had to sleep. I find myself getting so wrapped up in my project that the days seem to pass at the blink of an eye. Yesterday was just like that. I sat at the table in the late morning and began once again working on my painting. Besides writing my blog here, there were some every day chores that I had to finish before I could settle in. (Showering, getting dressed, answering emails, etc.) and I found myself wondering why doing all this s...
With 2013 circling the drain I find my thoughts turning to this past year (and I can’t help thinking about the few years proceeding it, too). It’s been a rough go. I don’t know how far I should go back to make this all make sense to you. What I would really like is to tell my story, tell about my plan, execute my plan, and document my weekly progress (without it being too boring of course). All I ask from you is to follow along (if you have the stomach for it) and give me your advice, encoura...
My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1193: My Little All-Season Tree - Dressed for Christmas!
As I write this morning, we are in the midst of what looks like a blizzard. We are not alone however, as I understand that much of the northeastern United States and Canada is also experiencing this storm. While they are calling for anywhere from 20-30 cm of snow with winds up to 80 kmh, some sources are saying that it will be changing to rain later on today, which will make it extremely messy/dangerous. Word of this storm has been around for the past few days, and while we already had sev...
Hello! I would like to know how is it possible to emigrate to the United States and maybe if I find a job on the woodworking industry!?

We are in the midst of a snowy weekend here in Nova Scotia. Yesterday morning I woke up to about six inches of snow, and throughout the day we had several more fall. When we drove downtown to do our errands and go to the gym, there were times when you could barely see more than a few feet in front of you. The main road runs along the ocean and the fierce wind was blowing the snow and causing ‘white out’ conditions. It was certainly slow driving. Upon seeing this, we decided to ...
My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1191: Our NEW Winter 2014 Catalog is Available for Free Download!
I awoke this morning to several inches of freshly fallen snow, and it is still coming down as I write here this morning. While we have had an inch here or there in the past couple of weeks, this is the first significant snowfall of the year. In checking on Facebook, there were announcements that all the area schools are closed, as we are supposed to get more snow throughout the day. Then on Sunday a larger storm is supposed to arrive. They are calling for up to 30 cm in addition to what has ...
I am going to have to write quickly today because I must admit that I am running a bit behind today. There is so much to accomplish and the hours and minutes are just relentless. We have had a couple of exciting days here. Besides all of the things that I have to finish up for getting out in the mail, I had a couple of wood orders to make (that is GOOD!) and got them finished and sent. I was just settling down to work on my own Christmas gifts when I saw something on my Facebook news fe...
These past several weeks have been passing by like a whirlwind. There have been several deadlines to meet and that alone seems to have made time pass quickly. I usually find myself wondering where the day has gone somewhere around 4pm when dusk starts to settle in. So many people don’t like the winter months. They don’t like the darkness, which makes the days appear even shorter. They don’t like the cold or the snow and ice. They don’t like the cloudy bleakness tha...
Even though Keith and I usually don’t feel like we are adding a lot of new patterns, it seems that our product line is growing by leaps and bounds. Our “loose” goal is to put out a newsletter about twice a month introducing our new designs and letting people know what we are up to and while I thought that would be something that would be difficult to maintain, I find that the newsletter are never short of new items or announcements. I guess we are both pretty busy. I rea...
