My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1416: Gone Batty Candle Holders

10-06-2014 11:18 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

After another beautiful autumn weekend here in Nova Scotia, I am ready to start a brand new week. I had a very productive couple of days, as I was able to draw up two new candle tray patterns and work on my new project that I had shown you all on Friday. I also had several sizable wood orders which will be shipped out today so I spent much of the afternoon yesterday at the scroll saw. It's all good. I really enjoy providing wood for people. While it does take me away from designing a...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1415: Saturday Showcase #2 - MacLeod Dragons

10-04-2014 12:04 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

As many of you know – I love to support fellow artists. As someone who designs and crafts, I really can appreciate the time and talent that goes into a hand-created piece. For the next several weeks I want to dedicate my Saturday blog to someone I have met in the creative world whom I want to share with you. Today is another clay artist. His name is Ryan MacLeod and he is the founder and owner of his company MacLeod Dragons.  I came across Ryan's work a couple of years ago...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1414: Autumn Has Arrived

10-03-2014 11:43 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

Did I mention that October is my favorite month of the year?I love the cool, crisp weather and the warm and rich colors of autumn. Living here in Nova Scotia, we have an abundance of hard wood trees that paint our countryside with a beautiful array of fall colors. Just now, they are really starting to change color. As I look across the river, I can see green, yellow, pink and orange. It is that perfect time of year when the leaves are still on the trees, but displaying a vibrant palette. I wi...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1413: Welcome October!

10-01-2014 12:09 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

It is hard to believe that we are beginning a new month already! September seemed to pass by so quickly, and before we know it, we will be into the holiday season. It has been such a busy month for us here, and I am sure that is why the time flew by so fast. It seems that I have been going non-stop and one day just bleeds into the next. I am not complaining at all though, as I have been very happy that there have been so many opportunities ahead. After the closing of the magazine, I must...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1412: My All Season Tree - Halloween, 2014

09-30-2014 12:12 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 8 comments »

Many of you who read know about my little "all season" tree. It is a tall and slim tree that I keep up all year round and change the decorations to coordinate with the season. Even though we live in a small place, it is nice to have such a wonderful little tree to brighten things up and decorate with different things. Since Keith and I are always designing new ornaments and things, I never run short of things to adorn it with. In fact – I don't think I have ever had it loo...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1411: "UFO's"

09-29-2014 12:15 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 9 comments »

This weekend was splendid!  I finally was caught up enough to do some things around the house that I have been meaning to do for quite a while. My little 'all season tree' is now beautifully decorated in a cute, Halloween theme (you will have to come back tomorrow to see that – I have too many photos to show today!) and not only did I do some major cleaning, but I cooked a great Sunday dinner and I plowed through a fairly large pile of "UFO's" and got them all...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1410: Showcase Saturday #1 - Olde Moon Lane Primitives

09-27-2014 12:14 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

Many of you know how much I love and respect other designers and hand made items. Be it painted, wood, glass or just about anything in between, I have always been drawn to others who love to create finished projects to sell. One of the (many) wonderful things that I find in my daily travels on the internet and on Facebook is that there certainly is no shortage of talent in our world, and no matter what taste you have or which season you are shopping for, there is a great wealth of styles and ...

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 ...
