Slabinator

11-15-2015 02:23 PM by rhett | 9 comments »

Thought I would share pics of the slab flattening machine I am constantly upgrading. Made from 80/20 extrusion, it’s basically a CNC minus the computer and motor drives. While it could be converted, I like to manually run the router, so I have control over the cut. Here’s the basic machine: Slabs are held down via a vacuum table. Super simple design using a shop vac and weatherstripping. The router is held steady on the track with linear bearings and a moun...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1653: Investing in Your Business

11-13-2015 01:15 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

I have had my own business for over 20 years now. It began when I wanted to stay home and be with my son, yet still help contribute to the family income. Since I have always loved just about any type of crafting and creating, I felt that it was what I was destine to do – create and design. I won't tell you that I haven't had my rough times. There were those who doubted my ability to be successful (and still do) as well as the time and economic restrictions that are required...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1652: Busy as an Elf

11-12-2015 01:35 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 0 comments »

Today's post will be a bit short. While I am working hard on new designs, there still isn't much that I can show you or even tease you with. I did get some wood cutting done yesterday and filled some orders, and I was planning and drawing my new designs in between. I feel as if I am skipping blogging a bit more than normal. Again, this isn't because I am not making things, but more so just the opposite. Between email, posting orders, cutting, painting and drawing, the days ar...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1651: Thinking - The Unseen "Work"

11-11-2015 01:19 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

There are days when things fall into somewhat of a lull and other days when my head seems to explode with ideas.  Lately, it seems that I just don't know where to begin . . .From the viewpoint of an outsider looking in, it may have appeared that my day yesterday was one in which I accomplished very little. Besides doing the regular mail and customer correspondence (and of course, my blog here) I spent the day milling about doing the 'regular' stuff around the house and . . . ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1650: Monday's Blog - Take 2

11-10-2015 12:44 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 8 comments »

Yesterday I had a blog all written and ready to publish. It was a quarter of nine my time and I was feeling good because I usually post by about nine fifteen. I was ahead of the game and it was a great way to start off my Monday. Then in the blink of an eye – POOF!!!! Our power went off. It remained off for nearly five hours. I knew the post was lost. I do pretty well in power outages here. They don't happen frequently (usually less than once a year) but on a bright, sunny...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1649: Busy Work

11-06-2015 11:30 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

Yesterday was another busy day. I had so many parcels to package up and ship out that it took me most of the day to get everything done. I was fortunate to get to the post office by 4pm, as they closed at 5 and it took them nearly an hour just to process all the parcels. It was a good day. I am really pleased at the response to my little pumpkin surface. (SLDPK127 on my site) Talk about an unexpected response! I have another fairly large batch to cut again over the weekend as well. It...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1648: NOW I Can Call it Finished!

11-05-2015 01:08 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

These last few days have been both busy and fun. I am so thrilled at all the positive responses that I had regarding my little pumpkin shaped plaques. Before I could even finish them, I had lots and lots of orders for the surfaces. Many people ordered just one or two, as they were planning to paint their own designs on them. It felt good to have something that was liked so much by so many. I am really pleased. Needless to say, I have been quite busy these past couple of days. I hadn'...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1647: New Pumpkin Surface Available from Me

11-03-2015 01:32 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

I was thrilled at the great response that I had yesterday to my Havest Blessing paintings by Lynne Andrews. It felt really good to paint something from someone that I had so much admiration and respect for and have others like it as well. What a fun and beautiful project this turned out to be!  (You can get the pattern HERE from Lynne's site.) I had many, many inquiries regarding the pumpkin surface that I drew up for my painting. I worked as quickly as I could to finish up the ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1646: November, It Is!

11-02-2015 01:11 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

Yes – we are already into month 11 of the year.  How the heck did that happen? It seemed like yesterday that we were taking pictures of the nearly 4 feet of snow that had accumulated. Wow! How quickly this year has passed!But as I was outside the other day, on an overcast autumn afternoon, I couldn't help but notice the beauty. not only were the trees still half-filled with warm colored leaves, but the other plants and vegetation had also taken on deep, warm color. The air was ...
