My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1377: A Different Kind of Project

20 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

Yesterday I had mentioned that I was going to spend the day getting caught up on some paperwork. I did spend a couple of hours in the morning doing that, but as so often happens, later on in the day I got somewhat distracted and wound up spending the day doing an entirely different type of project. Such is life . . . I had mentioned a couple of weeks ago that Keith was in the process of building a new speaker/amplifier system for our home. While we already had a really awesome system tha...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1375: Still Catching Up

23 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

The day was so busy yesterday, and I am still catching up on orders and things today. While it is fun to take a break, I always worry about the pile of work that will await me when I return home. I suppose it is a good sign though, and our little business is doing OK. I am very grateful and happy for that, as it took us a long time to get here and we still have a long way to go.Today I want to highlight some beautiful painting items that I received from a woman in one of my painting groups on...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1372: Fifty Shades of Black

30 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 8 comments »

OK. Only two. But you are here reading so I got your attention. Today will I will show you the final photos of the scroll sawn version of my "Nevermore" plaque. I finished it up yesterday, and it is heading out to New Jersey this morning to be published in the November issue of Creative Woodworks and Crafts magazine, which will come out in September. That will give those of you who want to make it  plenty of time. I am pleased with how it came out, but I still couldn&...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1371: More Progress and New Plaques

31 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

Another busy weekend has come and gone. The speed that time passes continues to amaze me. I must be busy.It is cool here this morning, with just a bit of rain. After the past few days which were rather warm and sticky, I am happy for the change. Although our weather here in Nova Scotia seems very mild in when I hear about how hot it has been in other places. I feel very fortunate.I made some progress on my "Nevermore" plaque yesterday. I didn't quite complete it, but it will be ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1370: Progress on the "Nevermore" Scroll Saw Project

32 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 7 comments »

I made good progress on my scrolled version of the "Nevermore" plaque although it did not come without its challenges. It was nothing that I couldn't overcome, but it took some real thought to sort some of the process out in my mind and make it work how I intended. But after spending the day laying things out and finally getting the chance to cut the pieces at the scroll saw, I am fairly happy with the results. Below is a photograph of where it sits as I write this morning: S...

Designing the Thien Baffle in Sketchup

32 days ago by Sk1pp3r | 0 comments »

I am just posting my journey for my upgrades to the Harbor Freight Dust collector I got. I have been using it stock except for the wynn filter cartridge and have been happy with it so far, however I have been getting some leaks and will smell the wood dust coming from the collector after cutting items. So I figured if I am going to seal the leaks, I better just build a whole new cart and add a Thien Separator. The first post here is detailing the Thien Separator. I went over to his we...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1357: Nevermore

47 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 8 comments »

What a wonderfully positive day I had yesterday. I really appreciated all the wonderful comments that you all made and sent regarding my new painting design that I am creating for the August issue of Interactive Artist Magazine. This is my first project with them, and I wanted it to be something special.  I already had a couple of offers to purchase the piece and many inquiries regarding the pattern.  Because this piece will be published, I won't have the rights to it until Dece...

60 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 7 comments »

"Why a Christmas tree in summer?" you may ask.  (My neighbor Lee just asked me this yesterday!)"It's NOT a Christmas tree." I replied "It's an 'All Season' tree. And it makes me happy ALL YEAR LONG."Isn't that what life is all about? Isn't that the focus of ALL of our lives?Living well and being happy. Seeing those we love smile. Enjoying what every beautiful day brings our way. These are goals that most of us strive to achieve e...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1344: More Sea Ornaments!

62 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

I spent the day yesterday refining the ornaments that I showed you in yesterday's blog. Those of you who have come to know me realize that I just can't do things one way. Keith often teases me because I think of so many variations of many of the different designs that I create, but when I think of several versions of doing things, it is hard for me to only make ONE – so I make them ALL! :)I know it takes longer to do and I don't really think it matters. Even after they are f...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1343: I LOVE the Sea!

63 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

Even though I was born and raised in the Midwest, I always loved the sea. From the time I was very young and took field trips with my class to the Shedd Aquarium in Chicago, to when I was a teen reading romance novels that were set in small seaside towns or villages, I dreamed of someday living near the ocean. After many years and what seems like several lifetimes, I have come to realize my dream. I now live in a small town on the Eastern coast of Nova Scotia, and the ocean is only about...
