My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1304: Really? You made THAT with a Scroll Saw!?!

85 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 11 comments »

My goodness I had FUN yesterday! I always have fun, but yesterday pushed the day to another level. It felt so good to see the ideas that have been living in my head come to life. And they came out even CUTER than I could have ever imagined. I have been thinking about these designs for several weeks now. After seeing the darling embossed paper from a shop on Etsy (Ravenwood Treasures#) the wheels in my head were really turning! I immediately ordered some paper and began planning on h...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1303: Paper Roses

86 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 8 comments »

The weekend turned out to be incredibly productive. I love when that happens. What started out as a bottleneck of cluttered ideas that had me in a muddle soon began to flow in a good direction. By taking some time and sorting through them and considering them one at a time, I was able to move things forward in an orderly manner. And I am very happy with the results. Sometimes, I have to stop looking at the entire forest at once. It is utterly confusing to me and tends to stop me in my ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1302: Back on Track

87 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

I am feeling a bit better about things today than I was yesterday. It helped to write about it in the morning and it put me on a path that was positive and productive. Sometimes just ‘talking’ about things – whether it be in written form or spoken – helps us more than we know. When I sat down to work on my project and article, I still felt a little overwhelmed, as there were many ideas swimming around my head at once. Far too many to apply to the task at hand. I...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1301: Overcoming "Blocks"

88 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 10 comments »

I awoke this morning right before 6 am. I was surprised because it was already beginning to get light out and I thought I had slept quite late. I realize that at this time of year, it is typical for the sun to come up early, but somehow it doesn’t seem to fit because it is still so cold outside. Yesterday, in the late morning it began to snow. Not a lot, mind you, but flurries nonetheless. Later on in the day I saw a friend was on her way home from Halifax and encountered snow as ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1300: A Quick Blog

90 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 0 comments »

Today’s post will be pretty short. I spent yesterday and plan on spending today finishing up my drawings for my eight new patterns, as well as working on some new stuff for my next magazine project. Since most of it is writing, I don’t have very much to show you without just putting line work up here. I would rather you see things when they are further along. We had another good and busy day yesterday. I can honestly say that I did more “office” work than anythin...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1299: A Perfect World - Panel 6

91 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

What a whirl wind day yesterday was! I honestly didn’t stop moving until about 9:30pm, after beginning my day at about 6. With many thanks for Steve Good who posted about his contest for two people to win a copy of Keith’s and my new booklet – Getting Started With a Scroll Saw. It was a crazy, crazy day! I had intended to finish the last drawing of my new pattern series entitled “Early Inspirations” that is going to be geared for newer sawyers. In the firs...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1298: A Contest

92 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

Many of you may have already heard about Steve Good’s blog. For several years now, Steve puts out a blog nearly every day to promote scroll sawing. In fact, it is because of Steve that I began my own blog on the Lumberjocks.com site and now have nearly 1300 entries. He has become a friend and a mentor of mine, and he was the one who introduced me to Lumberjocks.com. Steve’s blog and website is great. Not only does it have the blog, but it also has a wonderful and active foru...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1297: A Milestone for Me

93 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 7 comments »

A couple of months back, I began working on something that kind of got side tracked. We all have projects like that. We start out like a ball of fire and then something gets in the way and deadlines come up and holidays come and before we know it, our project is tucked neatly (or sometimes not so neatly) into a corner. While I know that there are some people who won’t start another project until one is finished, I am not like that. I usually have a couple of things on the go at o...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1296: Early Inspirations

94 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

I took the day off of writing yesterday because I wanted to really make a dent in the new projects that I have been working on. Sometimes I find myself getting lost in the ‘social media’ part of the day and it leads me down a path that sometimes may not be very productive. I don’t worry much about this, as I feel that I do make up for my time spent fooling around with my friends and customers on the computer. Besides, there usually isn’t a day that goes by when I am ...
