Lumber Jocks, Here is a list I made up for looking for Holiday sales for wood working supplies and tools. I would expect that most of you know about all these sites. However, if you see on that is new to you then, it was worth my time to create and post this list. As with all my links that I have, I update the list from time to time. http://www.woodcraft.com/http://www.rockler.com/http://www.ptreeusa.com/http://www.highlandwoodworking.com/index.aspxhttp://www.harborfreight.com/#htt...
The last several days have been a bit unnerving for me. In the end, it turns out it was quite a scam, but it was still something that took my attention and troubled me nonetheless. As many of you know, I have been blogging here for over three years now. What began as a test and a forum for me to explain what I do a bit better to my customers, turned out to be a habit and a personal accounting which has brought me many wonderful friendships. Looking back on my past blogs (they are all h...
Thank goodness for my early mornings! I was so fortunate that I got so much done early yesterday. As the day progressed, it seemed to be caught in ‘fast forward’ mode and before I knew it, it was getting dark and night time had arrived. It all happened within a blink of an eye. I was so happy that I got up early, as I felt that I at least had a jump start on things because I got right to work. My mail box was full of messages and I had wanted to get our next newsletter ou...
I was invited to display (sell) at an artists bazaar, held yesterday, Nov., 24. I have never done that before, in fact, it is really just the last year or two that I have sold my stuff. The bazaar seemed to have a feminine slant to it, lots of girly stuff! There were about 25 booths. I took every fancy little trinket box I could make. I also took a few games I had made for my folks last year. They were not impressed with Shut the Box, or Quarto. And I made up some cedar bird feeders ...
I always have the best intentions of taking some time off and doing some things that are not work related. It seems though that more so than not, that doesn’t seem to happen very often. This isn’t a complaint, mind you. I don’t for a minute want anyone to think that. I honestly love what I do, and most times it is very difficult for me to refer to it as ‘work.’ I realize that I am very fortunate in thinking about it like that and I know that it is rare for s...
I am just going to post a quick update today, as I still have quite a bit that I want to accomplish. I am working on writing the pattern packets for the new projects that we are in the process of adding to our site. I finished two of the three packets yesterday and I want to have the third one posted by the end of the day. Keith has also been working on some new projects that will be included in the update. Below is a picture of an ornament from his new set that he designed. He calls t...
My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1173: New Projects Completed! Time To Write Pattern Packets!
I will get right down to business this morning because I have a LOT that I want to accomplish today! I pretty much finished up the new ornaments and today I need to write instructions for the pattern packet, as well as the ornaments that I showed earlier this week and the “Gloria” candle tray that was featured in the holiday issue of Scrollsaw Woodworks and Crafts magazine so I can get everything on the website and do the site update. Here are pictures of the “Gloria...
It’s really amazing how many every day things we take for granted. Sometimes we are just so used to having things one way, we don’t appreciate it much until it is gone. I recently had an experience such as this. A couple of weeks prior to my trip to Chicago, I scheduled an appointment with the new eye doctor in town. I was just about due for my annual checkup, and I was noticing that I was not seeing my computer screen well and making several mistakes on orders. I realized ...
I am really thrilled at the overwhelming response of the ornament sets that I featured here over the past couple of days. For someone such as myself who works here from home, it is a great boost to hear so many positive responses from everyone. It lights my fire and makes me want to do even better! I know that many of you are waiting for me to offer the pattern for those ornaments on my site. Several of you have asked, and I want to say that we are planning a site update for early next we...
