My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #478: Finding My Comfort Zone

10-01-2011 12:38 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

I really feel good about yesterday. It was one of those days where everything just marched along as it should and in the end, I felt like I really accomplished a lot. I felt good and I stayed really focused on what I wanted to accomplish and by the time the day was complete, I had done what I had set out to do and more. There were few distractions and I really had fun too. One of the most important things that I did was to get my next lesson up. It had been a couple of weeks since I post...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #476: Surprises

09-29-2011 12:41 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

I am not really big on surprises. Not that I am a party pooper or anything like that. I just like things in order and organized and surprises usually blow even the best laid plans out of the water. Little things I don’t mind. But for the most part I like to see what is coming and be able to plan for it. Maybe it is because I am so careful at how I allot my time. There is always so much to do and it is sometimes quite a challenge to accomplish everything. Throwing even a small c...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #475: Backup Plans are Good

09-28-2011 11:47 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 9 comments »

I thought I did pretty well yesterday. The Lumberjocks site here was down for most of the day and my blood pressure didn’t even rise (much) at all! It was one of those days where I came here in the morning to write and I couldn’t get on the site. I remember when it happened several months ago and I felt like I was missing a limb. I was pacing around like a caged animal and checking every three seconds to see if it was back. Not too comfortable. But yesterday, I had every...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #474: The Creative Wheels Are Once Again Turning

09-27-2011 09:57 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 8 comments »

Now that is more like it! What a good day it turned out to be yesterday. It had its rough spots, but I kept forging ahead and all in all it turned out to be pretty good and productive. While driving to do my errands, I saw the Blue Heron was visiting the little pond down the road again. I don’t know if I mentioned it before, but I saw it there a couple of weeks ago. It is truly beautiful and they are one of my favorite birds. I even did a painting of one a couple of years ago. ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #473: Starting Off Another Week

09-26-2011 02:07 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 0 comments »

Today is going to be a short post. I am just getting started on my next projects and I don’t really have much to say about them right now. I spent most of yesterday painting my little Halloween bunnies. I am getting close to finishing them and I may be able to do so by tonight. They are more detailed than I initially anticipated (like most things) and are taking a bit longer than I thought they would. But that is fine. They are fun and relaxing and coming out nice I think. I h...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #472: Calm

09-25-2011 12:54 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

Today is one of those rare mornings when I am sitting here and thinking about what I am going to write about, and there isn’t one particular thing that stands out in my mind. It isn’t that nothing is going on with me, I think it is more of a matter that there is nothing remarkable going on with me. (That is, worthy of me writing about.) Is that a bad thing? I don’t think so. It just doesn’t make for exciting blog reading. But now that I think about, it kind...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #471: Seasons Change

09-24-2011 01:45 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 0 comments »

Yesterday was the first day of fall for those of us living in the northern hemisphere. Those of you who read know that it is my favorite time of year. Living in the woods allows me to witness all the beautiful colors first hand right outside my window. There are many hardwood trees in my area, and at this time of year, they offer a variety of colors ranging from gold to orange to crimson. It is truly beautiful. I went into town yesterday to do some errands and I couldn’t believe ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #470: Holy Distractions, Batman! (But oh, aren't they fun?) :)

09-23-2011 01:03 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

You know that feeling you get when you see a project and you just HAVE to make it? Well, that happened to me the other day. On Tuesday I received my copy of Creative Woodworks and Crafts magazine and I saw the most darling little compound cut bats in it that were designed by my friend Diana Thompson. They were right there flying around on the cover: Well, Geeze Louise! WHY did she have to go and make something so darn cute?!? Doesn’t she know I have other things to do??? I...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #469: Winds of Change

09-22-2011 01:29 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 7 comments »

I can’t remember the last time I heard such an uproar among so many people. Not when the earthquake hit in Japan. Not when the US narrowly escaped default on its debts in August. Not even when hurricane Irene traveled up the eastern coast of the United States. For yesterday, the really BIG news hit: They changed Facebook. Now I am not talking a little tweak here or there. I am talking a major overhaul. Not only is the overall appearance different, but the entire way that thi...
