My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1485: Watching Paint Dry

01-29-2015 01:37 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

We had some catching up to do on our errands yesterday, so I got a late start at finishing up my project for the Art Play Date.It actually felt really good to get out and get some fresh air. The world around us was like a winter wonderland – so beautiful with the freshly fallen snow – and it looks like something out of a movie. The snow was still falling yesterday, but it was a very tiny, fine snow and there was still a substantial amount of wind. But as I wake up today, it is bri...

What happens when you try to make a pen and the top half explodes on the lathe, so you try to make another pen and bottom half breaks when you are “trimming the barrel”...This:

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1484: Art Play Date 2015

01-28-2015 01:50 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

We were very fortunate that the first 'blizzard' of the season wasn't as fierce as predicted. Oh – we got snow alright. And some pretty intense howling winds as well. It is hard to say how much we wound up with in the end, but I am thinking it averaged about a foot. With the wind so strong you can see grassy areas in places and the drifts are two feet high in others. Such is winter in Nova Scotia.I never mind the cold and snow. I much prefer it to the sometimes muggy he...

so many cracks. complete money pit

01-27-2015 09:58 PM by emart | 4 comments »

I finally got all the cracks and rotten spots fixed on my customer’s table top. I had to buy about $80 worth of resin to fix it. this wood was so porous and crumbly that tape would not stick to it. it seemed to just suck down resin like it was a sponge. This is a before picture some of the cracks and cavities were so big i could fit my fingers in them some photos after I filled in the cracks and sanded it to level the lumps out. I will give it a final pour of resin once the un...

Tip and Tricks for woodworkers #1: Bill's fireside chat for this week

Hi my fellow crafters.I am going to be doing a series every week (as time allows) on how to setup a workshop, what tools to buy to get started, some tips on what is the “best way to do this or that”, ideas on how to improve your tools and get the most out of them.

Please check back each week to see ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1483: New Adventures in Publishing!

01-26-2015 01:44 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

All this month I have been working in many directions. I know to some of you that is nothing new, but this month it seems that I have skipped posting a little more than usual – not because I have not be doing anything, but pretty much the opposite. When I do projects for myself, I never mind showing you all the processes and steps along the way. I love sharing this part of things with you all because I know that many of my readers here have their own businesses, and I think it some...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1482: Better Late than Never

01-24-2015 02:57 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

I am checking in a little late today because yesterday the day got away from me and I was doing the final editing and proofreading on my SLD489 Layered Heart Damask Box with Monogram pattern. I actually finished everything up early this morning, and I sent all the orders out from last night for the patterns. If you ordered one and I missed you, please let me know and I will get it to you right away. :)We finished our site update yesterday. And in addition to the pattern for the above desig...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1481: Some More New Designs

01-23-2015 01:32 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

Today's post will be quick. (Yes! I know I always say that!) But I really will try because I have lots to do today and need to keep moving. We are getting ready for another site update, and hopefully we will have everything in place by tomorrow. Both Keith and I have some new patterns that we want to post and we hope to put some different patterns on special as well. I am still writing up the packets for my two new scroll sawing patterns and I should be done by this afternoon (barrin...
