Hi all, this is my first post at lumberjocks.
I am a stay at home mum after working at the Salvation army for arround 7 years.my kids are teens now and my husband makes ends meet so I am at home trying to bring in some extra money with my wood work.
mostly just enjoying my self, developing my love for wood work.
I was 18 when I had my first baby and a single mum of 3 for 4 years, so i have not had much time to do just what Iwant to do.must say I am loving it so far.
My main thing is Scroll saw work. a few photos of my work.

Leanne. You do some beautiful work. You should post them as projects under the projects tab. Just hit add a new project and then you can add the photo directly without going through Photobucket.

Welcome to Lumberjocks, This site is addicting and it also very informative. You will find lots of people to help you if you ask for it. It gets to be like one big family all over the world…........Jim
