Wow! Has it really been that long??? Kind of off topic well maybe...

17 hours ago by Huckleberry | 0 comments »

I was perusing Lumberjocks when I logged in and noticed it had been over 400 days since I posted anything. So what have I been up to you ask? Work, school, work, family, homework and tests… I graduated high school in 1995 (some will laugh others will be like hey youngster!) and one thing I have determined is I hated algebra then and I sure in the hell hate it now… Outside of that I have muddled in woodworking here and there and nothing real serious. That was until Festool had...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1387: This and That

1 day ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

I had kind of a 'catch up' day yesterday. With all that had been going on lately and with getting the new patterns up on the site, I was beginning to feel a bit frazzled. So many things to do and so many directions to head. I didn't know what to do first. I find that if I don't give myself a little break from things, I really start to feel it. Then I wind up running in circles and becoming overwhelmed. After doing my usual chores, I decided to pick up a paint brush a...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1386: Finding Success

2 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

I felt really good about things yesterday. After spending the day putting together the SLD475 Nevermore pattern packet and completing the newsletter and latest site update, I felt I finally could take a breath. It was around dinnertime by then, and after the roller coaster that we had been on for the past couple of weeks, it felt good to be (at least for the moment) caught up and allow myself to just 'be'. I had entertained the idea of working on some ornaments that I h...

The Shows #25: Central States Fair start of day 5

3 days ago by Monte Pittman | 13 comments »

Of course with sales you go into every show hoping that you sell everything you have. Then the show and reality bothstart. This year, the rreality started late. The weekend was huge. I was able to sell enough Saturday and Sunday to easily pass the break even point. Sunday alone I sold more than the entire week of the rally. I was figuring on being sold out quickly this week. Then came Monday. Oh the people are there, they simply aren’t looking for anything. Still having a good week, bu...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1385: Making Lemonade

3 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 7 comments »

Thoughout my life, I have practiced and somewhat mastered the art of finding good in most anything. Even when something bad occurs, I have myself trained to try to find a positive slant in it. Some people call this 'optimism' and I suppose that is as good a word as any to describe my attitude toward life. I think it is a good habit to follow, as looking for something positive in a even a not-so-good situation often changes our entire disposition and more often than not, we surprise ou...

LOOKING FOR HELP #1: Need a replacement leg for my chaise lounge

4 days ago by JanKossen | 1 comment »

Dear AllAprox. 10 years ago, I purchased this chaise lounge, while living in Hong Kong, at a Maitland Smith Shop. Having moved around the world, I am now back in Switzerland…. and my poor chaise lounge has finally said “no more” to all the shipping it had to withstand. A leg has now broken – and its impossible to find anyone who can replicate the broken leg. I have received a letter from Mailtland smith, confirming that they cannot help me (no spare parts available)....

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1384: Getting Back on the Horse (Or Reindeer, if you will!)

5 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 7 comments »

I am happy that last week is behind me. I can honestly say that it wasn't one of my 'favorite' weeks. It only confirmed my own beliefs that negativity and controversy can really take its toll on someone. For the first time since I could remember, I wasn't really excited about my work. I think when things really began to sink in, I realized the full scope of the events of the week and the implications for the future. I found it difficult to find my motivation, even though I sti...

The Shows #24: The Fair Day 2

6 days ago by Monte Pittman | 18 comments »

Yes I am starting the blog a day late. I had a furniture delivery yesterday morning. Then rush home to load for the Central States Fair. 2 quick trips to get the basics here and setup last night. Last night was decent. My best sales are on concert and rodeo nights. Last night was motocross and tonight is the demolition derby. For whatever reason, those groups don’t spend money. First half of the booth is setup. The pictures are done by my 85 year old mother ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1383: New Project Ready to Cut (At Last!)

7 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

I can't tell you all how GOOD it feels to be back at work and productive again. With being gone for our little trip and then catching up and then all the things that were going on last week, I felt like I accomplished very little.The ideas are here, it is just a matter of  sitting down and concentrating long enough to actually DO them. I speak with many people who experience the same thing, so I don't feel like it is "only me" that this happens to. I find one of th...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1382: Looking Ahead

8 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 16 comments »

As we find ourselves on Friday already, I  am once again in awe of how another week has passed so quickly. I can honestly say that this has not been one of my 'favorite' weeks, as there were several things that happened over the past several days that were not very positive.I missed writing for a couple of days because I found myself in somewhat of a state of 'limbo' and I didn't feel that I accomplished as much as I would have liked. Much had happened over the course...
