« Part 1173: New Projects Completed! Time To Write Pattern Packets! Part 1174 of My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond series Part 1175: Working Weekend »

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 them Elegant Vintage Framed Ornaments (SLDK344) and they are really pretty.

I am sure they will be a big hit with everyone.

He also has a few new word art plaques that you all may be interested in. As I said – everything should be posted by later on tonight.

We decided to change the sale items on our Scroll Saw Pattern Specials page to include our “Ornaments of Christmas Past”. Since it is that time of year when everyone is making ornaments, we thought it would be appropriate to offer most of the ornament pattern sets at discounted prices. We have quite a large variety of styles and themes.

I had planned on painting today, but I am starting to think that won’t happen. I am going to spend the morning writing the packet for the Petite Damask Ornaments, but then yesterday I had several requests to offer another painting packet for my “12 Days of Christmas Key Ornaments” (SLDP213) that I had made earlier on this year.

I had decided to not make them into keys, as there were so many key sets available, but I have had many requests to offer both the kits and the instructions so I thought I would do my best to get it done today. I realize that time is ticking and I appreciate the interest so I want to make them available as soon as I possibly can.

So that is the story today. So very much to accomplish! But it is all good and I am happy that the business is going so well and we are so busy.

It’s just that time of year!

Both Keith and I are very grateful for all the wonderful support you all have shown us. It is great to see our little business growing every day and we know we are very fortunate.

I hope you all have a wonderful day today.

Have fun and do something wonderfully creative! :)

Good morning, Anna! :) We got some of the white stuff yesterday! (Sunday!) I can’t say I mind though. It was really pretty. Previews of things to come though. I hope you had a nice weekend. :)
