My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1185: Re-painting Designs to Create the Pattern

12-07-2013 12:50 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

I had a wonderful fun and relaxing day yesterday. Although – my idea of ‘relaxing’ may not be what you are used to seeing. I had an early dentists’ appointment. The tooth he fixed a couple of weeks ago was having some issues and he needed to do an adjustment on it. I do have a great dentist and he always seems to get me in quickly when I need him. This wasn’t an emergency though and I had called a couple of days ago and he was able to see me early yesterday...

Mahogany Banana Hanger

11-28-2013 01:44 PM by A Slice of Wood Workshop | 2 comments »

Hang your bananas with style. Made this banana hanger yesterday for a Christmas gift. A suggestion was also made that this would hold headphones nicely, this coming from a music creator. Only tools needed were a jig saw, router, and a drill. You can watch the video HERE.

Toy Time Again

11-23-2013 04:02 PM by Dave Owen | 5 comments »

There’s still enough time left to put together a few toys before Christmas. Both of the woodworking clubs I belong to contribute home-made wooden toys to ‘special’ children each year. Some go to Baptist Children’s Home, Children’s Cancer Center, poverty workers , homeless mothers, etc. – and some to a ‘Shoe Box’ operation that includes them in packages to our military personnel overseas for local children – hopefully making a friend out ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1138: Site Update Complete!

09-27-2013 11:07 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

What a busy day yesterday was again! Once again, the week just flew by and here we are looking at Friday again already. I try to take time to enjoy these autumn days, but with so much to do, I seem to get wrapped up in things and before I know it, the day is over. As I look back though, I did get a lot of things done. I finished putting together my last packet for the new site update and also was able to write the newsletter and get it out by late afternoon. Writing the newsletter is co...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1129: Site Update with New Patterns Available

09-12-2013 11:50 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 7 comments »

I am happy to say that we got all the new items posted on the site and everything is updated. Things have been fast and furious here and we find that we are updating a little more often. Our usual schedule was to do so about twice a month, but it seems that we have so many new things coming out that every other week is a bit better. I think it is better to have slightly more frequent updates rather than a longer time in between where we have so many new things that it may become overwhelmin...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1095: The Holiday Issue of Creative Woodworks and Crafts is Out!

08-03-2013 12:01 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 8 comments »

Good day to you all! I spent the much of the day yesterday getting things lined up for my next set of patterns. Hopefully, my new design will be put up on the site later on today, although I don’t think we will do another newsletter just yet. Keith has some new things that he is working on as well and we would like to wait until we have a few things to talk about before sending a newsletter. We try not to send more than two per month, as we don’t want to be bothersome to our cus...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1069: On to Writing Instructions

06-29-2013 11:48 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

It was a great relief to finish the set of ornaments that I have been working on for almost two weeks. Having the pieces finished and in front of me was very satisfying. I liked how they came out, and I am very appreciative of the warm kind and encouraging comments that everyone has shown regarding them. But painting the pieces is only part of the process. Now comes the work of photographing them for the pattern packet, as well as adjusting the step-by-step photos that I had taken along...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1068: 12 Days and Counting . . .

06-28-2013 11:31 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 7 comments »

As it turned out, I spent the bulk of yesterday finishing up and refining the 12 Days ornament set(s). What I thought would only take an hour or two, wound up taking until nearly 10pm in the evening. I say that without dismay or disappointment. Things just take time. While the main parts of the pieces were completed, I still needed to do refinements on them as well as finish them. The edges of the ornaments weren’t painted, and while the edges of the laser cut pieces that were pro...
