My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1694: 12 Days of Christmas - Day 2 Completed!

02-09-2016 02:13 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

Winter has finally arrived here in Nova Scotia. For the past two months, I think everyone around us here has held their breath and waited for the inevitable freezing temperatures, wind and snow. But up until yesterday, their dread has been pretty much unfounded. Oh, we have had some snow and ice, but nothing to really complain about. A few inches here and there. A few storms that brushed by us and missed us by a whisker. Nothing that really lasted for more than a couple of days. Whatever...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1693: Some Bunny's Been Busy Designing!

02-08-2016 02:03 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

My goodness! What a fun and productive weekend I had. I think I must be a little crazy because it seems the more directions I am going in at once, the more things I want to do. It may sound 'corny' but I feel so, so fortunate to be able to work doing something I love every single day. You must all think I am kidding when I say I can't wait to wake up and get started each day, but that is truly the case.On Saturday night, I probably only slept for a couple of hours because my head ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1692: Friday Came Quickly This Week!

02-05-2016 01:37 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

With another week coming to a close, it is (once again!) amazing how quickly time seems to pass. Again this week was extremely busy, and my status of being 'caught up' was very short-lived. Being on top of all my orders lasted about six hours, and soon I had more orders to fill. I was thrilled with this, as it is what I have been working towards for many, many years. It is just sometimes hard to keep up.I have always had the mindset of getting things out as quickly as I possibly can. ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1691: Making Progress and Catching Up

02-04-2016 02:06 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

After Monday night's power outage, things got back to normal rather quickly. I spent the next day finishing up the outstanding orders that I had and getting everything boxed up and ready to ship out the door. I worked at a very relaxed pace and enjoyed packaging everything up. Among the orders was another one of my SLDPK238 Halloween Haunted Carousel kits, which is one of my favorite things to sell. I think of the people who are receiving the items and I really do take a lot of care and p...

Dust Collection??

02-02-2016 01:14 PM by Bob Rodrigues | 10 comments »

I’m in the market now for a dust collector. Being married with 2 kids there really isn’t a lot of money I can budget for this at this time. I’ve read the reviews on the Harbor Freight dust collector but I’m wondering If I could get some woodworkers perspective that have this unit. How is it? Does it work well? And is it ok to run pvc or gutter sewerage pipe instead of the metal stove type of piping???? Any info on this topic from all LJ’s would be great.

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1689: Welcome February!

02-01-2016 01:43 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

It is hard to believe that the first month of the year is under our belts already. It seems like it was just December only a few days ago! Here in Nova Scotia, we have been (so far!) spared the fierce winter that we have become used to experiencing. Oh – we have had some snow, but it is nothing like what we experienced last year where we had storm after storm. I remember driving to Halifax at the end of April and still seeing small, stubborn piles of snow that did not want to seem to di...

Workbench?

01-29-2016 05:06 PM by haskins | 1 comment »

i’m thinking of building a versatile well built workbench that has a lot of lighting. I don’t do much hand tools so it wouldn’t need to suit that. I also want to put it against the wall, I know its not the best place for a workbench, but i just want to have something for small projects so that i can have a well lit place to film. I want to put a few drawers in it and maybe some storage on the wall. What do you’ll think will best suit my shop. shop: http://lumber...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1688: Deadlines

01-29-2016 01:34 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

It seems that I am always working on some sort of  'deadline'.  I know that people think of those who are self-employed as being free to do whatever they choose whenever they wish to do it. While we may find that our schedules are a bit flexible at times, I honestly believe that if we follow the 'take-the-day-to-go-to-the-beach' mentality that so many perceive us to have too often, it is with near certainty that our business will fail. The entrepreneurs that I h...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1687: Encouragement

01-28-2016 01:13 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

It has been another couple of very busy days. I am very fortunate that things are going so well and things keep me so busy. Not everything about what I do though is 'blog-worthy' or what I feel would be of interest. After all – how many times do you want to see photos of blank ornaments that I cut?  I am sure it loses its impact after a bit. But my month of January has been pretty much spent at the scroll saw.  (or packaging boxes, or answering emails!)  Whil...
