Advice for my new business?

05-13-2011 03:10 PM by robbinscabin | 17 comments »

You all know that hubby and I have recently started our own small business…North Country Rustics. It should come to no surprise to anyone that I consider myself pretty handy. I have marginal art skills, marginal tool skills, a pretty creative mind, and a real desire to “create”. I also boast some pretty good computer skills. Yet I feel completely lost when it comes to really getting my business off the ground. I’ve sold some items but mostly to family and friends&#...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #336: Another Pull Toy Replica

05-11-2011 01:03 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 8 comments »

I can’t remember when I last felt so good about things. I have always loved what I do, but it just seems like things are really falling into place and it is truly a pleasure to get up every morning to work. I don’t know if it is the new tools or my friends or being organized or just being at a good place in my life that makes it so enjoyable. Perhaps it is because I am doing what I have always wanted to do. It feels so wonderful being able to draw and make fun things and be cr...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #335: "I See the Light!"

05-10-2011 01:01 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

I was very excited when I got to the post office yesterday and found that the light for my new saw had arrived. It was supposed to be sent to New York last month and either it got lost (gotta love the post office!) or just plain didn’t go out. In any case, I needed to reorder it and it has finally arrive. In all the years I have been scroll sawing, I have never had a “proper” light. At one time I had the swing arm type of desk light, but I found that the vibration from...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #334: Life is GOOD!

05-09-2011 01:21 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

Did you ever have a day when you just can’t wait to get up and out of bed and get going? I love those days and today was one of them. Even though it is raining out, I can already feel that it going to be a good one. Yesterday turned out to be a wonderful day too. After writing my blog here, I really got going and decided to attack my paperwork. The pile was sizable, as it not only contained the regular stuff that I had accumulated in the last two months, but also all the receipts...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #333: The Plan

05-08-2011 01:13 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 7 comments »

I don’t feel as if I have anything exciting to write about today. I am not sure if that is a good thing or a bad thing. It seems that I am somewhat in between projects and even though I am in the process of creating new things, I am at a point where things are partially done and not at a point where I am ready to share them with you. I am feeling on edge a bit because I still feel a bit disorganized and need to get a handle on things so that I can move ahead. There are perhaps too m...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #332: Time For More Designing

05-07-2011 12:58 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

Boy, the days are just flying by! I can’t believe that another week is done and we are already at Saturday. It truly amazes me how quickly time seems to pass. Yesterday turned out to be a really good day. I needed to make a trip to Digby to do some things and I got to see some friends that I haven’t seen in a while. I also got to stop at Bernie and Ellen’s and have a short visit with them. As usual, Ellen made a wonderful lunch as soon as she heard I was going to sto...

New Title, the Mid-Mich. WW Guild, in association with the LJs, gathering.

05-06-2011 06:57 PM by jockmike2 | 15 comments »

What started as a Lumberjock Gatherign has become an Association invited by the Mid Michigan Wood Workers Guild to attend a gathering at Johnson’s Workbench as advertised by them, and Keith July. That’s fine with me, like everyone says the more the merrier. I have no idea why the SouthWestern WoodWorkers Guild have been invited and an invitation to anyone in Indiana have been invited also. I have no idea about the food and am not taking on that. It started out as a dog and burg f...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #331: Still Deciding

05-06-2011 12:15 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

I want to start off thanking you for sharing your experiences on Etsy yesterday. I received several messages, as well as what was posted here and I am still deciding what I am going to do. One thing that I noticed on Etsy is that they discourage you from posting a link to your own website (unless i am reading it wrong.) If that is the case, then I don’t think I am going to do anything there. They say it would display “avoidance of fees” but I don’t feel that would ...

From Roger, [who lives in Kentucky] The Mountain ones are very minimalistic… I like them… And the Budweiser caps are different to the ones available here… These are from John in Florida. These caps with “Mik...
