My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1409: Scrollgirl

09-26-2014 10:56 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

These past several weeks have been increasingly busy. Part of me feels a bit bad because I have been missing my blog from time to time, but for the most part, I am thrilled that I am so busy. After all – this is what I have worked for all of these years. I would be a fool if I complained. As we enter the last weekend of September, I once again sit in wonder as to how quickly time seems to pass. Wasn't it just the other day that we were welcoming the first day of summer? It all ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1408: The Early Bird Gets the Worm

09-24-2014 09:37 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

After a very busy day yesterday, I got a very early start this morning. I can't say that it happened because I am overly ambitious or anything so noble as that, but my dear cat Coco decided at 4:15 that I had enough sleep and it was high time I get up and feed her a decent meal. She chose to quietly but persistently scrape at my closed bedroom door until I finally gave in and decided to get up. After all – it was close to my usual time of waking. Close enough that I knew I woul...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1407: Not Quite "Time Off"

09-22-2014 11:56 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

I suppose I need to reevaluate my definition of the meaning of having 'time off'. While I had a wonderful weekend, I had intended to take a couple of "me" days and just putz around the house here and do some things completely for myself. I also wanted to catch up on a couple of things like bringing out the autumn decorations (we don't have many, but I like them anyway) and changing my all season tree to a cool Halloween theme. After all, we are now into the last week of ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1406: More New Things - Time for a Little Break

09-19-2014 11:44 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

Yesterday was another full and busy day.  Not only did we finish updating our site, but I finished creating my pattern packet as well for the SLDP225 MUD Witches Boots.  It may sound silly to many, but I am really proud of not only the design, but also the pattern packet itself. I truly feel it was one of my best efforts and was quite an accomplishment for me to make. It isn't that the project is particularly difficult. As a matter of fact, I believe it is very easy. But...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1405: Site (almost!) Updated

09-18-2014 11:48 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

Yesterday turned out to be a crazy/busy day, with a few unexpected twists.  Those of you who read regularly know how much I love my three beautiful cats (Richard, Pancakes and Coco) and how much they are part of my everyday life. Like most pet owners, I consider them my 'fur babies' and they are wonderfully special to me.Lately though, Coco (my beautiful black long-haired girl) has been feeling under the weather. She has been vomiting more than usual (long haired cats in the autu...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1404: Still Writing Instructions

09-16-2014 11:20 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

I had quite a busy day yesterday. It was one of those days when I had planned to have a quiet day of writing instructions for my two latest designs so that we can do a site update tomorrow (Wednesday).  It has been a fabulous week. I truly can't believe how nice things are going. It seems that all the 'feelers' that I put out in the past several months and all the seeds that I have planted are really beginning to pay off. And there are many more things that I have planned as ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1403: A Lesson

09-15-2014 11:10 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 12 comments »

Today's blog post may be a little different than what I normally write. A couple of things occurred this weekend that made me think a little (sometimes a dangerous thing!) and I spent some time pondering things and I feel that my conclusions may be worth sharing. The first incident occurred on Saturday. I received a hateful, nasty, spiteful letter from someone who was angry at me for not leaving the free patterns up on my site for infinity. Apparently she had found some old links tha...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1402: Busy Days are the BEST!

09-13-2014 12:10 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

Those of you who know me know that my favorite season is quickly approaching. While I enjoy summer and even winter, I always think that autumn is the best time of year. I love the warm days and cool nights. I love the colors and crispness in the air. I also love seeing the beautiful foliage and colors that the season brings.I have many fond memories of this time of year. I always enjoyed school, as it was once again an opportunity to reconnect with friends that I missed seeing over the summer...
