My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1253: One Good Thing Leads to Another

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

I had a very busy weekend and I took a couple of days off of blogging. It wasn’t that I was being lazy, but probably just the opposite – I had so much to do that I wanted to get going early. Most of what I kept me busy was probably nothing that I felt was interesting to you all. Keith’s auntie is still visiting so on Saturday I had both her and Keith’s mom over for a nice dinner and visit. We don’t entertain often, and it was nice for me to cook a good meal...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1252: New Patterns Posted

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

Once again, I need to just do a quick blog today. I have been working on my computer all morning and it is already getting late. Today’s work will include typing up and sending out a newsletter announcing our new patterns and kits that are going to be available on the site. I spent the early part of yesterday finishing up writing my pattern packets, and then I spent the afternoon and evening at our good friend’s house for a nice, relaxing dinner. I have mentioned Ellen and B...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1251: Finishing Up the New Patterns for the Site Update

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

Today’s post will be quick like yesterday’s. I have been feverishly working on getting my new pattern packets ready for the site update (well – maybe not feverishly, but hard anyway!) I finished my little Easter egg tray pattern yesterday and it took most of the day to create the packet. It took longer than normal because not only did I have the painting instructions to do, but also the sewing instructions for the Roc-Lon fabric option. I couldn’t help thinking that...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1250: Appreciating the Present

55 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 9 comments »

It appears that we have another layer of snow this morning. Winter surely seems to be having its fun with us all, doesn’t it? I have read so many complaints about the weather these past several weeks and I can’t help to think back to a few months ago when instead of complaining about the cold and snow, people were unhappy with the heat. Go figure. I find that complaining about the weather is a waste of time and space. After all, no matter what is sent our way we really don&#...

Woodshop Build, Varnell Woodworks

55 days ago by VarnellWoodworks | 2 comments »

I am jumping into my woodworking career with both feet. Unfortunately, this is not cheap and I do not have any tools worth anything. Also, having a handicap, I am on a very limited income. So, what is a woodworker to do? Start small, build up tools one at a time, accumulate better tools as you go. This is the plan, however, I need to start somewhere and my income only pays the bills that I have. I have found a possible source for start up expenses. I just signed up for a Crowd Funding webs...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1249: Patience

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

Today I find myself looking for some interesting things to post about. Once again I find myself in the ‘writing phase’ of designing and I fear that there is not much exciting news to tell. There are many exciting thoughts floating around in my head though, so I am still enthusiastic and excited, but I don’t think there is much that I have to show you at this point. I was thrilled at the positive response that I had from yesterday’s post. So many of you liked the n...

The Shows #23: The Sports show - Wrap up

57 days ago by Monte Pittman | 18 comments »

Well it was a pleasant surprise to say the least. I had never done this show before and did not know what to expect. What I found out is that I need to find a lot more of these shows. My sales out of the booth paid for the weekend a couple times over. With the number of people I had talked to, I had high hopes for orders being placed over the next few weeks. It didn’t take a few weeks , today I received 5 orders. That will make it the biggest show I have ever had. It may be a fluke, but...

My Small Business: Spud Wood Works #15: 2013 a Trail blazing year, 2014 already breaking records.

57 days ago by Ethan Harris | 2 comments »

Hello Readers, It certainly has been awhile since I have last shared about my small woodworking business (Spud Woodworks). I have been very blessed over the past year and I wanted to share some of those things with you all. 2013 2013 was my banner year. I started Spud Woodworks as a all around online retail store on Esty, expanded to selling on my own website and made a few sales to local stores. My first 12 month year started slow, and grew to a 5 digit revenue company in my fir...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1248: Adding Some Color to those Dull Winter Days

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

Most of you know that I am addicted to color. I love so many different color palettes and combinations that it is hard to pick a favorite. I suppose it depends on what mood I am in, but I love designing using beautiful ranges of colors from soft pastels to colors with great intensity. It is part of the fun of being a designer. Last week I finished a little candle tray/mat project for the upcoming Easter season. In it I used very soft pastels with just a splash of deep pink to add some...
