My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1518: Organization Progress

03-17-2015 12:42 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

Good day to everyone. Today is going to be another one of those 'odds and ends' days. I really think that the entire week will be like that. After getting so many little things accomplished over the weekend, I think I am on a roll and while I have other designs in mind, I really want that progress to continue. It feels so good seeing things finding their place around here, and while most people moan and groan a bit about organizing, I think that once we start the organizational ball r...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1517: My Easter Tree

03-16-2015 11:37 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

It was still dark when I first awoke today. As I was going through my morning emails, I heard the sound of the plow going by on the road. Once again it had snowed. We were supposed to get 10cm of additional snow on Saturday evening, but that never really materialized. We got some snow here and there, but it didnt' really stick much, as the warmer temperatures are trying to work their way here, but keep being pushed back by the unrelenting cold winter air that isn't quite ready to...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1516: Learning from our Disappointments

03-13-2015 01:12 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 8 comments »

I debated on writing today because I am not sure if I have anything very interesting to discuss today. After putting in some really long hours the past week or so, I think it is time for me to take a breath. I had to smile to myself when someone who placed an order put a note that said how anxious they were for the patterns. It really made me feel good to know that the hard work I invested was appreciated and people like the design. It isn't always like that. I am not mentioning this...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1515: FLOWERS!!!!

03-12-2015 11:34 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 7 comments »

Today I am revealing the fourth and final new trinket box pattern that I created over the weekend. I was really pleased with all the kind reponses that I have received regarding them. It feels good to make something that people seem to like so much. I spent the day yesterday writing up the pattern packets for these projects. I tried to include some step-by-step photos so that even newer scrollers would be able to make the projects successfully. Actually they aren't that difficult at ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1514: SHEEP!!!!

03-11-2015 12:29 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

It is NOT snowing today.It is hazy and dull outside, and I can see the tops of the bare trees waving slightly in the breeze. There are still mountains of snow – some drifts 3-4 feet high – and they are no longer that beautiful pristine white, but rather rather dirty looking and grey. As I look out to my car, however, I notice that the banks of snow that surround it no longer have it completely encased. They have pulled back quite a bit, leaving a gap between the wall of snow and t...

Oregon Woodturners Symposium

03-10-2015 05:55 PM by OregonBurls | 4 comments »

It has been a while sense I have posted any thing. I hope not to be a stranger. Life is crazy with all the travel and all the other stuff that I do. It seems like I only have time for family and business. Just got back from the symposium. It was their first and it went great! Met lots of new people. I think my favorite moments are when I get to meet people who have been my clients for years and I get to meet them in person for the first time. and of course seeing old friends that I only ge...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1513: CHICKS!!!!!!

03-10-2015 11:48 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

Yesterday I featured a sweet bunny basket and accessory pattern. I mentioned that it was just one of four new designs that I completed over the weekend. While I showed you some "snapshots" of the finished project, I spent the day taking what I call 'presentation photos' of all four projects. Having nice photos is really helpful when selling patterns. I find that people enjoy not only seeing nice, clear photos of what the pattern includes, but also likes suggestions of h...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1512: BUNNIES!!!!!

03-09-2015 12:54 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

I had a good and busy weekend! It just goes to show that when I set my mind to doing things, I can really accomplish a lot. On Friday I finished up three drawings for new patterns.  It may not seem like a lot, but I keep adding little extras to make them even more special and allow those who purchased the patterns to do lots with them.To me, patterns are much more than just handing off some line work. Especially in scroll sawing, where the lines are what we follow with the saw. While the...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1511: New Designs/New Magazine for Scrollers in Germany

03-06-2015 01:27 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

Yesterday turned out to be a pretty good day. After the chain of minor disasters the day before, I spent the first part of the day organizing things. I keep things in pretty good order most of the time, but to me, organization isn't a once a year/month/week thing. It is something that has to be attended to on a regular basis and once it becomes a habit, I find we do it without even thiking about it. Every once in a while though, I find that I have become a bit lazy (or busy, if you w...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1510: Making Some Bad Days Better

03-05-2015 01:00 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

This week has not been one of my favorite weeks of all time. Like everyone else, once in a while we have some crummy days.  Mine had decided to come all at the same time it seems. I was having some 'technical difficulties' on Tuesday, and while I intended to spend the day drawing my new designs, I wound up spending the majority of the day 'fixing things' and putting out fires. (not literally).  I did have a nice evening though when I threw in the towel and spent the ...
