Helpful Jigs #3: Using the lamination jig

01-12-2014 05:19 PM by rhett | 1 comment »

This video has next to zero production value but is a cool process none the less. The strips of ash are dry fit in the jig to get the initial bend, then glued and put back in. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-Zd8rwZ4gQI&list=HL1389547025&feature=mh_lolz Hope it motivates others to try something new.

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1184: The Time Machine of Designing

12-06-2013 11:07 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

I had to switch gears yesterday and jump from snowmen and snow globes to chicks and spring colors. I suppose that is part of what I really enjoy about my job – I am never working on anything long enough to be ‘bored’ with it. This is truly an exciting time of year for me. I know that I can say that just about any time of year, but with the holiday season upon us, it seems that I am working on more projects and directions and the days pass by very quickly. I am sure that p...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1170: Finished Ornament Pictures! :)

11-20-2013 12:23 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 11 comments »

As I am writing this morning, the sky is a very light blue and it is filled with puffy clouds. The bottoms of the clouds are an incredible peachy/orange hue that blends into the peachy/grey tops. If I painted a picture like this, some would think it looked ‘fake’, as the colors are so unusual. But it is there and it is a beautiful sight to wake up to. I can feel already that it will be a good day. I made pretty good progress yesterday on my project. The second version of th...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1169: Making Your Own Rules

11-19-2013 11:35 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 8 comments »

To me, one of the best things I find with designing is that the only rules that I have to follow are my own. I think that is one of the main reasons that I became a designer in the first place. I never really followed along with rules. It isn’t that I am not able to do so. Usually I am pretty good at reading instructions and following them to the letter. . My friend Cari and I were “experts” at doing things like putting together projects, toys and furniture (you know &#...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1167: Wonderful Progress (And a Bonus Mini-Lecture!) ;)

11-17-2013 12:22 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 11 comments »

I had another busy day yesterday, although it was a good one. Not only did I spend the afternoon cutting out my new ornaments on my new Excalibur (which was simply just FUN!) but I also spent the morning getting to work on my next pattern for another ornament set. The set that I am working on (SLD445 Traditional Damask Ornaments) is not for the faint of heart. I wanted something that would push the envelope a little bit and I think these designs qualify. I wanted to make them a bit sm...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1163: Spring is in the Air!!

11-12-2013 10:58 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

In the crazy world of designing, as most of us are waiting for that first snow, my thoughts have been to green leaves, warm weather and singing birds. These past few days I have been working on my project for the March issue of Creative Woodworks and Crafts magazine, in which we are welcoming in the spring season. It is certainly a time warp. I had been thinking of my project that I would submit long before we left for our trip to Chicago. I wanted something bright and cheerful and I h...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1153: Getting Ready for the Road - New Box Finished!

10-14-2013 10:56 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 8 comments »

Yesterday seemed to go by in a blink of an eye. Both Keith and myself are working at top speed not only to finish our newest patterns for the projects and are heading to the magazine, as well as squeezing in a quick website update at Sheila Landry Designs and preparing everything we need for our trip. So far, so good – with one more day to go! We were able to put four new projects up on the site yesterday. So far, they have been pretty well received as they were some that were i...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1152: The Storm Before the Calm

10-13-2013 10:43 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 10 comments »

I wasn’t going to write today, as I am in the midst of the chaos of my little space here in “pre-trip” mode. As most of you know, we have a small place, and normally we keep it pretty organized. I like a clean environment to work, function and live and while I am nowhere near a “neat freak”, you can usually walk in on any given day and there is some resemblance of law and order. As I look around today, that is not so much the case. Yesterday we had a wonde...
