I spent the day yesterday finishing up my three new patterns as well as taking the photos for the pattern. It filled up most of my day (along with my usual errands and post office trip) and by the time I was finished, it was nearly bed time. I am going to be working on the pattern packets today, and hopefully by later on in the day we will send a newsletter out letting everyone know that the site is fully updated.
As usual, it took a bit longer than I expected, but the results I feel were good and I am happy with the photographs. With that said, here are the finished projects . . .
First there is my SLD492 Shamrock Trinket Box:
It holds candy, jewelry or these surprise coasters or ornaments that are included in the pattern:
Next up is my SLD493 Celtic Monogrammed box. . .
It can also hold small treats or any small items you wish:
It comes with a full upper case alphabet, hand-drawn by me.
And finally for me, my Celtic ornament set:
As you can see, I added some beautiful crystal rhinestones on them to enhance them using various shades of green. (Did you have any DOUBTS?!) I also did the same for the small hard wood pendants I cut:
I think they would make lovely gifts.
Keith also has several nes patterns. . .
His SLDK540, Proud Nurse, Paramedic, Firefighter and Officer plaques set:
And finally his SLDK541 Large Filigree Cross set of three crosses pattern:
His patterns are available on the site now, and mine will be by later on today. The links to any of mine will work once the patterns are up there for sale.
I did want to mention one last thing. . .
I had a customer write me and tell me that she was getting a large amount of ads and video advertisements when reading my blog here on my site. I realize that Lumberjocks.com does have ads, so if you read it there at the Lumberjocks site, I don't have any control over that. However, on my own site (http://www.sheilalandrydesigns.com/scroll-saw-blog) I am a private and fully paid website, and I don't have any ads whatsoever here. If you are seeing them, chances are that there is some type of adware attached to your browser and you need to attend to that on your side. The only way I promote fellow designers and crafts people is through my links page and I don't believe in bombarding you with ads here on my website. I appreciate the customer letting me know though, as I don't want you to think that it is me that is doing it to you. :)
With that said, I need to end here for today and get to writing. These patterns are pretty straight forward as far as cutting goes, and I hope to have everything posted by later this afternoon.
It is sunny and still calm here in Nova Scotia, and another beautiful winter day.
I hope you have a wonderful Thursday!
