My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1578: Summer is Here

06-25-2015 10:27 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

I didn't post yesterday because I got a good deal of drawing done. I am on a drawing binge and actually working on several new scroll saw designs at once. It seems that I get like that – work in a flurry and then move on to something else – but I hate to stop the process when I am on a roll. Not even to take the time to cut things out. I will probably be doing that over the weekend and then have the projects ready for next week. I think it will be fun.Here is a sample of what ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1577: Variety - Keeping Things Interesting

06-23-2015 11:51 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

I am currently in the process of creating three different projects, in three different media forms. Actually, I am working on five, but only three are being actively worked  on. Then there are the multitudes of other projects that are all lined up in my head, awaiting their turn to come forward. (Do they count?) I suppose you can say I am 'busy'.It feels good to be in this place in my life. It isn't always like this. That is why when it is, I try to jump in and do as muc...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1576: Welcome Summer!

06-22-2015 11:52 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

What an amazing weekend!Not that anything paticularly unusual happened. For the most part, it was a 'typical' weekend. But I felt as if I accomplished a great deal and also had a chance to visit with some dear friends and enjoy some 'down time.' For me – I guess it IS unusual. On Friday afternoon I received a call from my Canadian mom, Ellen. I call her that because both her and her husband Bernie have treated me like a daughter for the past eleven years that I have...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1575: A Busy Weekend Ahead!

06-19-2015 12:42 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

Yesterday was a good day. Not only was the weather near-perfect with a blue sky and warm air, but lots was accomplished and several positive things happened as well. I couldn't ask for more.I spent the morning working on my new  patterns for the website. We are planning an update to be completed by later on today and I will be sending out a newsletter then as well. I feel good about that because I have three new patterns that I will be sharing, and Keith has added four since our last...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1573: My Talented Friends

06-16-2015 11:27 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 1 comment »

Since I am in the midst of writing up patterns and doing things of that nature, I decided to share some great things about some of my very talented friends today. I am fortunate in what I do that I come across so many others with such amazing ideas. I always find so many wonderful and inspiring ideas from my friends, and I hope that they inspire you as well. First off, I wanted to let you know that Steve Good has a new Ebook out. Steve has a great site called "Scrollsaw Workshop&quo...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1572: Some Very Cool Effects!

06-15-2015 11:40 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 8 comments »

Another beautiful week is beginning.The sun has just come up, revealing a crystal clear blue sky. There is dew on the grass and cars and the birds are happily chirping. A light breeze is whispering through the tree tops and you can still feel the crispness from the night air. How could it be any more "perfect"?What a way to start a week!We've had several days like this now, and I think that Mother Nature is perhaps making up for the long, harsh winter we experienced here. To me,...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1571: Catching Up

06-12-2015 11:59 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

I suppose that I will never be accused of 'rushing through' things.Even when I seem to get something done quickly, many times I wind up going back and making changes in order to improve on it. I think this can be a good thing, but sometimes I wonder if it is counter productive or not.It is something that I can't really help. Often times, I will make something that is really good, and then either while I am writing the  pattern for it or making additional pieces, I realize tha...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1570: Playing "Hookie"

06-10-2015 12:24 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

Ok – I admit it. Yesterday I didn't get a lot done in the work department. Although I did accomplish some things, it was mostly 'putzing' around the house. The past several weeks have been so, so busy. Sometimes it just catches up to you. I tend to get submerged in my work and it can consume me. But once in a while, I think I need a day to just do 'whatever' strikes my fancy and not think about it being 'work.'  Sometimes it looks like what I do for...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1568: Fun NEW Projects!

06-08-2015 12:47 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

This past weekend I was terribly busy and I had a wonderfully fun time. While I loved creating my last huge project, it felt really good to be able to do some other things. When I work on one thing, I often get ideas for other projects to follow. I have learned to write these ideas down in a file so that later on when I am looking for something new to do, I have lots to choose from. You wouldn't believe how long the list is! I call it my 'job security' though and it seems that the...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1567: Gears are Turning

06-05-2015 12:20 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

I took the day off of blogging yesterday because I slept in a bit. By the time I awoke it was after 8:30 am (which is LATE for me!) and by the time I got through the morning mail, it was already rather late to begin writing. I figured since I was in 'recovery mode' from the previous weeks work, there wouldn't be much to miss anyway. The world would get along without me for a morning. ;) We spent a good part of the day updating the site. While Keith does most of the computer w...
