My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1321: Art Play Date

60 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

You would think that the last thing that I want or need to do is to take on more projects.  Being a designer, my day to day existence is filled with projects and the process of creating things.  I work in many different medias ranging from wood to painting and now even to textiles and needlework. There are times when I feel a bit overwhelmed by all that I have on my plate. Why, on Earth would I choose to try to do even more?I believe the answer can be summed up in one word – c...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1222: Fine Tuning

184 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 12 comments »

Yesterday seemed to fly by faster than usual. I had so many wonderful things to work on that even though I got an earlier-than-usual start, it seemed before I knew it time had slipped by me and it was dark and I was running out of steam. After I posted my blog here yesterday, I found I wasn’t really satisfied with the photographs of the little ballerinas that were wearing the tulle skirts. The pictures (while clear) seemed to have not shown the skirts very well at all. I decided...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1220: Making Progress . . .

186 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

Yesterday turned out to be another day that just got away from me, although I did accomplish quite a bit. I spent most of the day writing the instructions for the Bunny Toy Replica project that I had shown last week. I find that as time goes on my woodworking skills are improving and I find better, easier ways to do things and I like to incorporate that into my projects. It is nice to know that I am still learning and improving. The rest of the day I spent working on my little ballerin...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1218: Ballerinas

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

I felt that I had a good and productive day yesterday. I tied up a lot of loose ends on the business side of things and then I was able to spend some time at the saw cutting out my newest project. That is always a pleasure for me to do. As I showed in yesterday’s entry, the next project that I was creating was a set of ballet dancers. I have always loved the ballet, and as most young girls did in my day, I took some lessons at the local park district in the city of Chicago. One of...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1113: New Halloween Key Ornaments

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

I had a very productive day yesterday. After being slowed down last week by not feeling my best, I can’t begin to tell you how good it felt just to feel like myself again and really get some things accomplished. For a change, I not only met the goals that I had set for myself for the day, but I exceeded them. (Geeze – do you think I set them too low??) I had wanted to finish up the drawing on my latest project. With the mornings becoming cooler each day, I can feel the inevi...

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

387 days ago 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 . . .

388 days ago 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...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1065: Knowing When to say "When"

394 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 1 comment »

I got up this morning and I still felt a bit tired. Those of you who know me and have read over these past three plus years know that doesn’t really happen often. I suppose that it is just one of those times when I need to take a breath. I worked pretty much all day yesterday on packing up the order for wholesale. Keith did the drilling (for the hanging holes for the ornaments) and helped pack the patterns into the plastic bags while I finished printing the patterns and then added ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #983: All Dressed Up (Just a Bit!)

493 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 9 comments »

I am rather in a hurry this morning because I have a great amount of things that I want to accomplish today. Among them is to get the pattern packet ready and put up on the site for the bunny ornaments that I showed yesterday. I was very pleased (and a little surprised) with the great amount of responses I received regarding these little guys, and I am thrilled because I really love them too. So without further delay, below are the pictures of them “dressed up” (just a bit!) ...
