My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #152: Some Decisions are Difficult to Make

11-02-2010 11:56 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

I am at last seeing the finish line in painting the skating pond scene. As of today, I am on the last of the figure and then I only need to do the trees and lamp posts and I will be able to unveil the entire scene. I have thoroughly enjoyed recreating it, but there have been many distractions along the way and I am feeling that I can’t wait to get to the many other things that await my attention. The distractions haven’t been all bad, but some are certainly more productive tha...

Woodworking Business #5: Consistent Quality and Guarantees

11-01-2010 03:05 PM by billb | 6 comments »

It’s obvious from reading the comments here that all of you are concerned with the quality of your work in addition to getting paid. I believe that consistently delivering quality work is essential to success. Cutting corners is never a good idea and will usually cost you more in the long run. My experience was that when I fully satisfied a customer they became a good salesperson for my work. Policy 4 – Consistently deliver the highest possible quality and make certain that the...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #151: More on Changes

11-01-2010 12:50 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 7 comments »

I very much enjoyed reading your responses to my blog yesterday. You all brought up some excellent points that I want to respond to and I hope you don’t mind if I continue the discussion here. There were many good points made and I would love to talk about some of them. As Tom said – balancing the old practical with the new technical is something to think about, and has raised several questions around here since I have been here. A couple of months ago, the discussion was br...

Excellence

11-01-2010 06:33 AM by sawblade1 | 5 comments »

Good Evening LJ’s I want to dedicate this blog to my co-worker Beverly who is out for quite a while, Monday before last she went from work to emergency with severe stomach pains that Thursday she was diagnosed with cancer. What makes a person, a business, a church or a company excellent ? How do we define them as excellent ? What unit of success do we use? Is excellence lots of money, time, being on top of the world, or Just having it all ? Some define excellence as being a gift...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #150: Dealing With Change

10-31-2010 02:10 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 7 comments »

I heard some sad news the other day. Apparently there is another painting magazine that is going to cease to exist. As I was reading my facebook news feed which is a mixture of friends, family, woodworkers and painters, I caught the thread where the announcement was made by a very respected long-time author of many painting instruction books. My heart just sank. She had also said that not only was their painting magazine going to fold, but the other craft type publications as well. I co...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #149: Skating Through Saturday on the Paintbrush of Life

10-30-2010 02:01 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

After my proclamation the other day of my dedication to working on my holiday gifts in the evening, I still had to pack it in by 11pm and slept until what I consider ‘late’ – 7:30am. I was a bit disappointed in myself but I was tired and in the past few years I have found that I need to go with what my body is telling me and give in or I will perpetuate the cycle. My health has been excellent in these past two years though so even though I sometimes feel that I don’t...

Woodworking Business #1: Experiences in the Woodworking Business

10-30-2010 03:36 AM by billb | 7 comments »

I haven’t been posting on this blog lately but I really enjoy reading LJ. I’ve learned a great deal from lots of interesting people and I’ve decided to share more often. I spent over 20 years in the woodworking business but right now I mostly spent my time as a network administrator or writing and publishing. Nevertheless, I keep my hand in with a number of projects, the most recent pictured on this blog. While I really enjoy woodworking and feel fairly competent at it, m...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #148: Only Eight Weeks Until Christmas . . . (YIKES!)

10-29-2010 01:37 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

Were you all as horrified as I was when you read that statement? I was doing my morning mail and cruising around my facebook to see what my friends were up to this morning and those words jumped out at me from someone’s post. I don’t know about you all, but it is time to kick into high gear for me and really get moving on making my list and getting some stuff done. As many of you have witnessed, I have been working on a couple of additional skating pond sets which are both to...
