ScrollSaw Information and Resources #58: Embellish of existing patterns

01-23-2014 01:34 PM by jerrells | 4 comments »

I will be cutting a set of standard patterns but my goal is to have them stand out for all the rest who use the same pattern. There are several ways to accomplish this we all know. Let me explore a few and , if you would, add you comments or suggestions. 1. Choice of wood. Instead of using the standard oak or maple we all know that more exotic woods look much nicer when finished. The down side is they might only appeal to a select group of persons. 2. The use of gems, rhinestones to add...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #660: New Projects Coming Together

04-03-2012 11:50 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

Yesterday was one of those days where everything was falling into place. I had a lot of odds and ends to finish up with, but the satisfaction of seeing those project get done was really motivating and it kept me pushing to do more. I love when that happens. I finally got the cheese tray photographed. In speaking with my editor, I also found out that I still had several weeks until it was due to be in New Jersey at the magazine. After running right on deadline since last fall, it was a s...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #461: Quality, Not Quantity

09-14-2011 01:20 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

As I look to the calender today and see that we are almost half way through September, I am once again amazed at how quickly time seems to pass. I truly don’t mean to keep complaining about it, as I know I mention it from time to time here, but I just can’t get over how the days go by so quickly. It never used to seem this way. It gets me to wondering. Does this mean I am a poor time manager? Or does it mean that my life is full and therefore the hours slip by quickly? I fe...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1331: Website Updated

06-03-2014 12:05 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

There are times when I feel that I am not accomplishing all I set out to do.  It seems that there are times when one project or another is not coming together quickly enough, and I feel that I could be doing more.  But then there are other times when I look at the new things that we are continually adding to our website and I feel a bit better about things. When the final tally is made, we see the site growing nearly every day and we are adding several new things per month, includin...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1393: And Then There Were Five

09-01-2014 11:47 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

I spent the day yesterday finishing up the remaining three poses of reindeer for my reindeer and sleigh vignette. Now all I need to do is assemble the two additional deer pattern packets and also the sleigh packet and I will be good to go. I had estimated that the sanding and assembly of the three deer would take half the day, and I planned to take the other half to kind of coast and do some things around the house, or some of my personal creating, but as usual I grossly underestimated myself...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #154: Trees and Lighting

11-04-2010 01:15 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

I think that I shall never see, a poem so lovely as a tree. – Joyce Kilmer Well, my trees may be poetry but they came out nice. I designed four different trees for the pond, in addition to the large tree that will be the center attraction. I am only going to include one in each set, but I will offer additional trees and lamp posts if people want more. Although the trees are relatively easy to paint, they are probably the most time consuming to cut. As I showed in a previous pos...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1456: Some New Patterns I Created

12-04-2014 02:01 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

We are getting ready for another site update, and I have a couple of new patterns that I have been working on that I hope to finish up today.It seems that people really like word art. We often get request for  personalized projects and plaques that have names or sayings that our customers like. That is one reason that Keith decided to do some personalized plaques, and they have been really popular. I also love cutting lettering. To me, the prettier the font, the better. There is som...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1344: More Sea Ornaments!

06-27-2014 12:41 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

I spent the day yesterday refining the ornaments that I showed you in yesterday's blog. Those of you who have come to know me realize that I just can't do things one way. Keith often teases me because I think of so many variations of many of the different designs that I create, but when I think of several versions of doing things, it is hard for me to only make ONE – so I make them ALL! :)I know it takes longer to do and I don't really think it matters. Even after they are f...

Having a Senior Moment....Help?

01-31-2009 07:17 AM by John Gray | 4 comments »

I need help finding an article/plan to make a US flag that holds the 50 state quarters. I saw the article/plan somewhere recently (in the last couple months) don’t remember what magazine or web site I saw it in/on. I’ve looked thru probably 100 magazine back issues, searched in LJ’s, and Googled it, no luck. I do remember one thing about it for sure, it said to buy the wooden stars at a craft store. The flag it’s self was waved like it would be blowing in the wind ...
