My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1632: Reaching the Goals We Set

10-05-2015 12:43 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

After a rainy and overcast weekend, on this beautiful Monday morning the sun is bright and shining. It looks to be another lovely autumn day here in Nova Scotia. The weather didn't bother me a bit though, as I was focused on doing some 'inside' things and working on some new projects and crossing off those deadlines. It was nice actually to not 'have' to go out anywhere, and I made good use of the time I had. I don't think that I mentioned it here before, but...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1631: Self-Challenges

10-02-2015 12:32 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

It felt so good to be caught up yesterday. That, by no means translates to being 'done' with everything – but it more or less means that I am on a workable schedule. For a while there, I thought I was slipping, with getting things completed just under the wire. While I like to have deadlines to pace myself, there are times that the sneak up faster than I anticipate and I find myself wondering if I will be able to meet them. It can be a slippery slope when I don't leave enoug...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1605: There's Hope

08-12-2015 11:06 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

Yesterday I had to skip posting. Our internet had become so spotty that it was difficult to stay online for any length of time. Over the past couple of weeks, both Keith and I noticed the problem was getting worse. The thing that got us wondering though was that much of the time it would work fine, but then it would be 'dragging' for increasing lengths of time. Sometimes hours. It is funny how dependent we have become on the internet. Not only for our business, but for our every ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1549: Carousel Kit is Posted on the Website

05-07-2015 10:26 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

Are you all tired of reading about this project yet?  I hope not. It is just been that it has really kind of consumed my life these past couple of weeks and because of that, I have had little else to write about. But I am getting to the end of my journey with this and soon will be moving on to other new things. I really appreciate all the nice comments and encouragement from everyone. When you work from home, outside feedback is really important – especially on the days when things...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1548: It's All in the Details

05-06-2015 12:47 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

For the past three weeks, I have been writing about a project that I was creating that I had been thinking about for over two years. I have hoped that it didn't get boring or tedious for you all to read, as my mind has been focused on little else and (for me, anyway) it was a long process to see it come to fruition. What I saw in my mind over the last few years probably changed hundreds of times. From one day to the next, not only the style and graphics on the project changed, but al...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1546: Haunted Carousel Central Pillar

05-04-2015 12:18 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

We had a beautiful weekend here in Nova Scotia. Finally we are seeing some warmer temperatures and are feeling the warmth of the sun. the grass is beginning to turn green again and the buds on the trees are finally, slowly emerging. Winter is definitely over. On Saturday Keith and I drove to Halifax. We had some errands to do and supplies to pick up, and I had someone look at my car to bid for some work that I need to have done on it. It is eleven years old now and while I have kept it i...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1541: "Scary-Go-Round" Progress

04-24-2015 12:17 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

I was absolutely thrilled with the progress that I made yesterday on my "Scary-Go-Round" painted carousel project! After all the thinking and planning, I think it is coming together rather nicely. I was debating on whether I was going to put it aside for a little bit and do some other work, but I can't help but keep moving forward and forging ahead. As each element is completed, I find myself wanting to hurry and get to the next part. It is wonderful to see my ideas turning into...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1540: Carousel Canopy and Stands for the Figures

04-23-2015 11:58 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 8 comments »

I have never been really 'fast' when I am creating a new design. Whether it is the process of making one of my own creations or following the instructions of someone else, things just seem to take me a long time. Often people mention how quickly I produce new projects, and I find that rather odd. It seems that more times than not, I take quite a bit longer than I anticipate to complete anything that I am working on. I think that I can attribute the illusion of me working so quickly wi...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1538: The Cast of Characters

04-17-2015 11:57 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

I skipped posting yesterday because I felt there was little new that I had to show you. I know that sometimes when that happens, I find something interesting for a 'filler post', but I didn't want to take the time to think in other directions. I was on a mission. The new project that I have begun working on has consumed me. I find myself thinking about it most of the waking hours of my day, and even as I awake momentarily in the middle of the night to roll over. It has been a...

Scrap Wood Project- Candy Coffin Dish

10-30-2014 04:52 PM by A Slice of Wood Workshop | 4 comments »

Just in time for Halloween! Build this easy made candy dish in the shape of a coffin. after your base is in it’s final dimension (measurements included in video), there is no more measuring-even with the different angles. Check out the video and see how it is made. Please subscribe for more woodworking videos AND blacksmithing videos. And if you want to watch some nonprofessional welding, watch this video below as I create a skeleton out of some scrap metal around the shop.
