Facebook #1: Trying really hard to get business off the ground - Need LIKES

04-28-2011 08:23 PM by Panga Design | 27 comments »

My name is Al and have recently set about making a living (trying) from my hobby in woodworking. Facebook is an integral part of marketing the products and I am currently striving to reach 100 LIKES on my page. I have two questions: 1. Is there anyone else out there who uses FB for marketing? and if so how is it going? 2. Would anyone who has read this be willing to like my page here: http://www.facebook.com/pages/Panga-Design/107616129306422 Thanks all in advance and please fe...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #323: Concerned About My Friends

04-28-2011 01:07 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 8 comments »

I spent the last hour or so trying to find out news about my dear friend Leldon from Cullman, Alabama. Yesterday Cullman was hit with a vicious tornado that wiped out most of downtown. The pictures are devastating and apparently the local hospital was also hit. I worried about him most of the night and even though he was able to check in to his Facebook page after the storm went through his area, he said it was like nothing he has ever seen. I was a bit relieved to see that he reposted on ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #320: Pacing Yourself

04-25-2011 12:41 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 8 comments »

I got up just after six this morning, which is just about right. It is good to feel like I am getting back to normal. I think six a.m. is a fine hour to wake up. Not too early whereas you would feel sleep deprived, yet early enough to get a jump on the day. It is just about right as far as I am concerned. I feel refreshed and highly motivated after the last two days. Stepping away from things for a bit really does wonders. Even if it is a half-step and I am still working on projects,...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #315: Two Short Videos for You

04-20-2011 01:10 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 30 comments »

Well, I actually was able to shoot a couple of short videos for you yesterday. I find that I feel much more at ease behind my keyboard writing than I do in front of the camera. I suppose that is natural, and I am sure with practice I will get better at it. These are both showing some of the highlights of the new saw. The first one shows the general set up and highlights the tensioning of the saw. I want to stress the point that the knob on the back end of the saw is used to raise and lo...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #314: More on the Excalibur Scroll Saw

04-19-2011 01:56 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 20 comments »

I want to start out today by saying that I didn’t get the video done yesterday. There was just too much going on with things and my partner Keith and I were both kind of taking turns on the saw. We both have projects to submit to the magazine for the Holiday issue and it is kind of ‘crunch time’. as we were away for a while and need to really get our projects done. I did, however save a piece from my own arsenal to cut in hopes of making a couple of small clips today. ...

You heard correctly … I will have some Tasmanian timber for sale at the show… just over a cubic metre of Tasmanian Huon Pine… Got a call today letting me know that the Carins Brothers from Tasmania will not be attending the Maleny show… and they have some Huon Pine stored at YAS Engineering where the TWC is made…... They will however be attending the Timber and Working With Wood Show at the RNA in Brisbane 3 weeks later… So I have been asked to s...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #313: My New Excalibur EX21 Scroll Saw!

04-18-2011 02:03 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 17 comments »

After several months of waiting and anticipation, the moment finally arrived when I got a chance to really get to know and work on my new Excalibur scroll saw! Even though I had the saw delivered to the show in Saratoga Springs, there was little time for me to enjoy it and really run it through the paces. I was very busy at the show and I must say that I was only at the booth a couple of hours a day, during which time I was usually talking to people who stopped by. Both Keith and I were ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #312: Ready for Cutting

04-17-2011 01:41 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

Just when I thought I was in the clear from this cold, it seems to have reared its ugly head again. Yesterday. around mid afternoon, I began to get pain in my head. It felt like it was in my sinuses, but I barely felt stuffy. By 9pm, I needed to take some medicine for it because it was really getting to me and not subsiding. I awoke in the middle of the night, again stuffed to the point where I couldn’t breath and had to take another dose. This morning my nose is clear, but I still...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #311: It's Beginning to Look A Lot Like CHRISTMAS (!?!)

04-16-2011 01:20 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 11 comments »

Working in the publishing industry sometimes make you feel like you are Alice in Wonderland. Nothing makes sense. There is no sense of time, space or season. Displacing holidays has been a part of my life for many, many years. I remember well the hot summer days when my friend Cari and I sat at the pool, watching the kids swim while we were on the side painting Santas and Christmas items. I remember how ironic it was that the beads of sweat would be falling on Mr. Snowman while I was t...
