« Part 1237: Working on Another Site Update Part 1238 of My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer series Part 1239: Back to the Drawing Board »

Today I am going to sound like an advertisement I fear, but Keith and I spent the majority of the day updating our website again and adding on the new designs we have to offer. Even though I sometimes feel like I am not accomplishing very much, I was very pleased to see all the new designs together. There were far more than I expected and I felt very proud of our site.

Keith had several new designs to add, and they are all really nice. He had two new bible verse plaques:

SLDK354 - Ephesians 4:7 Plaque

And:

SLDK355 - Matthew 5:8 Plaque

He also decided to make a set of all his similar Bible verse plaques:

SLDKBPSet1 - Set of 8 Bible Plaques

I added in a couple of romantic-themed projects that would be great for Valentines Day, Weddings, etc.

SLD442 - All My Love Keepsake Box

And my heart-themed key and lock ornaments:

Which also have a painted version:

SLD443 - 12 Romantic Key and Lock Ornaments

And finally, Keith has a new dessert tray that has beautiful scroll work on it:

SLDK356 Fretwork Dessert Tray

(Added in – How could I forget my favorite of Keith’s new designs! -

SLDK357 Embellished Filigree Pendants and Ornaments

All in all, it is a pretty good variety of projects. Seeing as we just updated things a couple of weeks ago, I felt we are doing pretty good.

Today I will be on to designing new things. I have some painting patterns I am working on as well as some new scroll saw patterns. I am working on some “spring-themed” things, as I believe that many people are looking forward to the spring after the harsh winter we are having. We are expecting a storm here in Nova Scotia today and another one as well over the weekend. It is a good time to stay in and draw and paint and cut and think ahead to warmer weather. I know it has been a hardship on many.

Thank you for stopping in and reading. Hopefully by tomorrow I will have at least some drawings to share with you. I am anxious to see these new ideas come to life and I know that they will be fun to build.

Have a wonderful Wednesday!

Hi Sheila,
Agnes likes very much your work. She loves to have keys as pendant for her necklaces that she used to make from different beads. She was amazed also with the bible verses. I think she is now becoming interested on how to do it. Another lumberjock is coming…aha. You inspired her. Thanks,

I love the keys! It all looks wonderful. I like how the shapes on the verse plaques are positive/negative and come off the edge, breaking up the straight edges.

Good morning Sheila. I love the new designs and the box, the tray and the pendants are on my gift lists for people. I have a notebook beside my computer now in which I list the patterns I want to do and who they are for. That way, once I get out to the workshop I can start working my way through the list instead of running around in my head wondering where to start as I have so many ideas!
A beautiful sunny day here but still very chilly.
Enjoy your day and I hope your forecasted storm isn’t too bad.

Thank you all for your very kind remarks. There are times when I feel as if I don’t accomplish anything, but then days like today when I see everything together, I am very proud of what Keith and I accomplish. We are so pleased with the huge response to our newsletters! It motivates us to do even better the next time! :)

Bert – show Agnes my class and see if that helps her get started. I am also here if she has any questions or needs any type of guidance. It would be wonderful to have another ‘scroller’ in the ranks!
