My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1541: "Scary-Go-Round" Progress

04-24-2015 12:17 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

I was absolutely thrilled with the progress that I made yesterday on my "Scary-Go-Round" painted carousel project! After all the thinking and planning, I think it is coming together rather nicely. I was debating on whether I was going to put it aside for a little bit and do some other work, but I can't help but keep moving forward and forging ahead. As each element is completed, I find myself wanting to hurry and get to the next part. It is wonderful to see my ideas turning into...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1540: Carousel Canopy and Stands for the Figures

04-23-2015 11:58 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 8 comments »

I have never been really 'fast' when I am creating a new design. Whether it is the process of making one of my own creations or following the instructions of someone else, things just seem to take me a long time. Often people mention how quickly I produce new projects, and I find that rather odd. It seems that more times than not, I take quite a bit longer than I anticipate to complete anything that I am working on. I think that I can attribute the illusion of me working so quickly wi...

Pen Making Supplies - Store Status

http://www.penmakingsupplies.com/ Did these folks go out of business or something? I’ve had an order in for over a week and it still shows “Awaiting Shipping” No answer from their phone number and no response to my emails. WTH over?

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1539: Task Lamp Steampunk Makeover

04-20-2015 12:05 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 7 comments »

Spring has finally arrived here in Nova Scotia! After the long, harsh winter, even me – one who loves winter – was ready for a change. The days are getting longer and the air is warmer and the last remnants of snow piles are slowly disappearing. I often find that the change of season encourages me to do some work around the house. Even though I was in the midst of my Haunted Carousel project, as well as several other things that I have on the go, on Saturday I opened up and l...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1538: The Cast of Characters

04-17-2015 11:57 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

I skipped posting yesterday because I felt there was little new that I had to show you. I know that sometimes when that happens, I find something interesting for a 'filler post', but I didn't want to take the time to think in other directions. I was on a mission. The new project that I have begun working on has consumed me. I find myself thinking about it most of the waking hours of my day, and even as I awake momentarily in the middle of the night to roll over. It has been a...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1537: Learning from Mistakes

04-15-2015 10:12 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

I always find it amazing how quickly things can go from uncertainty to progress.Only a few short hours ago, I was somewhat stuck – paralyzed and afraid to move forward with things for fear of mucking things up and failing. I was thinking about several things at once on this project, as there are many things that need to be worked out. Not only the design of it, but also the construction. I had been looking at the big picture all at once, and by doing so, it appeared to be very complicat...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1536: #1536 Making Progress

04-14-2015 12:13 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

Today's post will be quick.  (Really!)  Yesterday, as with many Mondays, I had a lot of 'odds and ends' to do to get my week started. I didn't really sit down to draw until later in the day, and while that was all well and good, I don't have much more to show you.  Add to that, I got up late today (around 8am – YIKES for me!) but since I was drawing until about 11:30 last night, I feel that my time was not wasted and I am kind of on a roll. It's al...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1535: Creating for the Sake of Creating

04-13-2015 11:55 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 9 comments »

As a designer, I have many (many) ideas for new projects. I am fortunate in that I keep my eyes open and by merely observing things around me in the world, I find lots of sources of inspiration. I am not always sure how this process works, as some days I am overflowing with ideas and others it just seems that nothing makes sense or wants to fall into place. Much of my designing process is 'automatic' and I sometimes forget just how to go about things when I am in a lull. Many projects...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1534: Headed for the Drawing Board

04-10-2015 11:33 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

Good day to you all! I am happy to say that I awoke today to NO snow! (There IS hope!) I state that half-jokingly because even though I love living in an area with four seasons – and I love them ALL – I have just about had  my fill of the white stuff for a while. Each morning it seems we were waking up to another 2-3 inches of snow, and while it usually disappeared by the afternoon, it was a little disheartening all the same. The forecast ahead shows temperatures above freezi...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1533: "Nevermore" Painting Pattern (Finally!)

04-09-2015 11:52 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

You know – there are days when I really do get mixed up! (Yes – I know! Some of you think EVERY day!) With all the different things I am doing and all the calendars, dates and reminders that I give myself, sometimes things do happen to slip by my steel trap of a mind. I suppose I am only human! Last autumn, I created a painting pattern that turned out to be one of my favorites. It was a bit 'darker' than my usual cheerful pieces, but I think that is what I liked ...
