My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1612: More New Pattern Designs

08-28-2015 11:56 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

This morning when I sat down here at my spot at my computer, ready to do the mail, my little cat Pancakes hopped right up here and snuggled in. He had greeted me with cooing and 'chirps' this morning and I was heating up my coffee – more enthusiastic than usual. Perhaps it is because he 'knows' that I made some cinnamon shortbread cookies last night and he knows me well enough to remember that I may steal one to have with my coffee for breakfast. He loves cookies and see...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1611: New Designs for Autumn

08-27-2015 11:43 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

I woke up this morning to a cool, gentle rain and the sun wasn't even really up yet. I have noticed this past week that whether it is cloudy or not, it is taking longer and longer to get light in the mornings.Something else changed as well. That cool, crispness is in the air again. After the heavy humidity and warmth that we experienced last week, it seems we have turned another page and are beginning a new chapter of seasons. Autumn is definitely knocking at our door. I never mind t...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1610: Keeping Busy

08-26-2015 11:11 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

There are few things that make me feel better than seeing someone enjoying my patterns and making projects from them. After all – the reason I began designing in the first place was so others could learn and have fun with them. I try to make each pattern I create into a mini-lesson, so that people of all skill levels can create the project themselves. Often I get notes or emails asking me if I mind if people change up my designs a little bit. Not only do I not mind it, but I encour...

The Great Box Sale Adventure #3: I Didn't want to Do it...

08-25-2015 04:30 PM by maplerock | 11 comments »

My last (and only) attempt at a Craft/Art show was not a huge success. Other than good company and a festive atmosphere, it was a lot of work for little sales. You guys all know that woodworking is an expensive hobby (or business for you talented guys) and if you don’t make some money, you are limited in what you can do (or what the wife will allow you to do.) I have been placing a few boxes in boutiques and galleries instead of at shows. I’ve had the same lackluster resul...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1609: Multi-Tasking

08-25-2015 12:02 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

Yesterday I felt a lot more like myself. After a couple of weeks of feeling a bit 'lost' I was back in full swing again working on three different projects at various stages. There's nothing like some good, solid deadlines to kick start us back to productivity!I know I am not alone in feeling this way. I have many friends who design and create all kinds of crafts from woodworking to painting and just about everything in between. I have seen them struggle and I have seen them soar ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1608: Back to Creating

08-24-2015 11:08 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

After a much needed break, I am back and finally feel ready to move forward in a productive manner. It isn't because I have been short of ideas. Actually it is quite the contrary. I have so many things that I want to do that I seem to have been somewhat 'stuck' as to which direction I want to head first. It is as if all the thoughts and ideas have bottle-necked in my head and as a result, I have been quite overwhelmed.Add to that my little back issue that remained (I haven...

Resawing ziricote and honey locust on my bandsaw

08-17-2015 07:13 AM by rkoorman | 3 comments »

Hello everyone, I just love resawing. Don’t know why…There’s something magical about is. On this video I resaw some nice woods for my clients. The bandsaw I use is a Felder 510 with a DoAll Olympia 2 tpi blade on it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6wYA971NB9E Thanks for watching !

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1606: Numbers

08-13-2015 12:19 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

With the summer months here, it seems we are running just a bit slower. I know I am. I don't know if it was because of the back issues or if is attributed to some things that have been on my mind. We all go through highs and lows though, and for the most part, things are still moving in a forward direction – just slower. The only thing that seems to be moving quickly is "time". It is hard for me to believe that it is the middle of August already. It seems that summer ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1605: There's Hope

08-12-2015 11:06 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

Yesterday I had to skip posting. Our internet had become so spotty that it was difficult to stay online for any length of time. Over the past couple of weeks, both Keith and I noticed the problem was getting worse. The thing that got us wondering though was that much of the time it would work fine, but then it would be 'dragging' for increasing lengths of time. Sometimes hours. It is funny how dependent we have become on the internet. Not only for our business, but for our every ...
