limitations

32 days ago by Lazy_K | 3 comments »

your limits can set you free. way back when I was studying calculus in college there were always “limits” on the notations. partly because calculus is used to study or make calculations of systems that are practically infinite (in which case your answers would all be effectively infinite and meaningless without limits) and partly because, well I don’t really remember. but if you didn’t set the limits for the zone you were studying you answers would be garbage. But I...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1269: Parsley, Sage, Rosemary and Thyme . . .

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

OK – Now you all have that song going through your head. It was hard not to think of it all the while I was making this project. I don’t know what it is with me and bunnies lately, but I just have a lot of “bunny” ideas that I am thinking about. Maybe it has to do with the time of year me thinking ahead to warmer days. This is a project that I am doing for the June issue of Creative Woodworks and Crafts magazine. The theme for the magazine is “summer̶...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1268: On to the Next Project . . .

34 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

I had thought that I would be able to take a day off today and do some things that aren’t work-related, but after an email from my editor at Creative Woodworks and Crafts, I realized that it wasn’t going to happen. I had mixed up my schedule for what is going to be published, and I need to have my next project in the mail by Monday so it can make it to the magazine offices on time. Why did I think that I would have another week? I don’t mind though, because fortunately I...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1267: New Patterns, Sales and Freebies on our Site

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

We finally got our site updated yesterday. I say that with just a touch of exasperation because it seems like getting to this point took much, much longer than it should. It hasn’t been because I wasn’t working – as a matter of fact, I don’t think I have had a minute to ‘goof off’ in over a week! I think it was more that there has just been a lot of things going on and there have been many tasks that take time and needed my attention. It’s all p...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1266: Sharing a Great Technique

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

I am off to a late start this morning so I will keep this short. It wasn’t that I slept in or anything like that, but I was going through my mail and reading and surfing the web and learning new things. I do that every morning before I come here to write. This morning I seemed to find more interesting and useful information than usual. While there is usually one or two crumbs that are particularly of interest to me, it seems today that I got lost in the trails of information that I...

The Rebuild #6: Getting into the swing again

36 days ago by Monte Pittman | 27 comments »

I will be the first to admit that I have been a little down the last couple months. I knew what I needed to do to get back up and running, but it has been lacking in heart some. I compare it to when I lost my dad. He was my best friend. It took a couple months to get my head focused after his passing. The first few days is paperwork and meeting people. Busy work. Then I was alone again. Yes I had my LJ friends (who have been nothing short of awesome), my regular job and family. But my pla...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1265: On to Some Better Things

37 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

The majority of the day yesterday was spent organizing. I know that isn’t much fun to write about but so many times I am asked how I stay so organized and I want you all to understand that it doesn’t just ‘happen’ and it takes a lot of time to keep things in order. While some are able to work and function even when things are in disarray, I find that it stifles me and I cannot be very productive. I finished doing all the number crunching for my taxes and feel a hu...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1264: Good Intentions

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

After taking a couple of days off from writing, I find it is time to get back to it. I was feeling a bit poorly this past weekend and I didn’t accomplish a great deal. I don’t get sick often, and I can’t even say if this was something that I would refer to ‘illness’ or perhaps it was just being tired. I have been going in a lot of directions at once lately and I needed to get a handle on things. I didn’t think writing about them would be interesting to ma...

Exploits collecting "free" wood #5: This will leave a bruise

39 days ago by Monte Pittman | 31 comments »

Let me start by saying that I was having a really good day. I had to replace my pickup and winch for hauling logs. My old pickup and winch however were undersized for what I was doing. I stumbled on to this pickup It’s ugly but the engine was completely overhauled and a heavy duty transmission had been put in it. It runs great and doesn’t even notice that I have a load. I also invested in a much better winch with log tongs. This was a huge improvement. I got this lo...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1263: Busy Weekend Ahead

41 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

Well – I spent the day yesterday finishing up the other version of the little cookie cutter animal basket that I showed you a couple of days ago. The first version (pictured above) was done using the new DecoArt Chalky Finish Paints, and I thought it would be a wonderful gift for a baby or even Easter. I loved the soft, pastel colors and I thought they looked really beautiful. The other version however is really different. It just goes to show how much a little paint can chan...
