My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1454: Welcome December!

12-01-2014 12:49 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

It is hard to believe it is December already! The autumn months are always my favorite, but it always seems that they pass by so quickly. Here in Nova Scotia we have had several days of dusting snow and lately it has been cool and grey. Winter is definitely coming.The beginning of the new month is also a significant day for me. My oldest child (Phil) has turned 31 today. It is hard to believe that it was that long ago when he was just a little guy. It seemed like in a blick of an eye he grew ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #335: "I See the Light!"

05-10-2011 01:01 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

I was very excited when I got to the post office yesterday and found that the light for my new saw had arrived. It was supposed to be sent to New York last month and either it got lost (gotta love the post office!) or just plain didn’t go out. In any case, I needed to reorder it and it has finally arrive. In all the years I have been scroll sawing, I have never had a “proper” light. At one time I had the swing arm type of desk light, but I found that the vibration from...

Getting my tools ready #15: Rehabbed Delta 18" C Arm Scroll Saw...it's done!

07-18-2014 02:41 AM by DocSavage45 | 4 comments »

This has been a learning experience in what not to do. LOL! Saw this scroll saw for 75 bucks on Craigslist. Drove to the house down dusty country roads and I blogged earlier about this saw requiring a couple hours of fixing the clamp to see it cut wood! Then I drove home in a snow storm. The first picture is how the saw looked in January! The second picture is how the rusted table looked. I got some suggestions from Blackie (Randy) regarding about using apple cider vinegar to rem...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1407: Not Quite "Time Off"

09-22-2014 11:56 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

I suppose I need to reevaluate my definition of the meaning of having 'time off'. While I had a wonderful weekend, I had intended to take a couple of "me" days and just putz around the house here and do some things completely for myself. I also wanted to catch up on a couple of things like bringing out the autumn decorations (we don't have many, but I like them anyway) and changing my all season tree to a cool Halloween theme. After all, we are now into the last week of ...

ScrollSaw Information and Resources #57: ESTY Pricing Decision

01-22-2014 01:47 PM by jerrells | 4 comments »

I am going to start stocking me ETSY shop. However the issue I find is that items like or similar to mine sell at half the price I get a local craft shows. Now I have enough marketing expertise to know that you either A) meet market price, B) sell a higher quality product at a higher price, or C) offer more and better services. Perhaps there are a few more but that is a start. I could make a reasonable return for the current prices on ETSY and (hope) to do volume selling). I see many produ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1391: Progress

08-29-2014 11:26 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

I thought I did pretty well yesterday. Besides getting a lot of little things done, I made pretty good progress on my new sleigh. I found a really nice piece of cherry to cut the main part of the sleigh, and I am going to use walnut for the runners. I think that the contrast will look good. By the time I finished all the drawing up and got everything prepped for cutting and did all my errands, it was later in the afternoon. Sometimes just 'every day stuff' takes a little time to ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1240: This and That

02-07-2014 12:35 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

I got started on a new projects yesterday. This one is going to be fun. The project is mainly geared for painters, but will be suitable for everyone. It is one that I am doing for the “Painting With Friends” group and is inspired by Terrye French. I love having the opportunity to work with Terrye on these projects because working with another really helps us think in different directions. Even though Keith is my partner, he and I don’t collaborate on designs (at least we...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1137: Time for Another Site Update!

09-26-2013 11:32 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

Yesterday seemed to pass by like a blur. While it was only Wednesday, it seemed like a weekend day and I was truly busy from the moment I awoke until after midnight when I finally turned in for the evening. Among other things, we spent the afternoon and evening out at the summer camp home of our friends from Digby. (Bernie and Ellen) We had been trying to plan our annual birthday dinner for both Ellen and me since mid-August, but one thing after another came up and we finally had a place...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #477: Things That Go Bump in the Night

09-30-2011 11:17 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

Yesterday – as most days – were filled with fun and adventure. I would say too, but my definition and your definition of the word ‘excitement’ are probably a bit different and what I would consider exciting, probably would even register on your radar. Yes, I live a life that is a bit unusual it seems. I spent the better part of the morning picking around the new software on the site Once again my theory that change, no matter how uncomfortable it may seem at th...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1455: 'Tis the Season

12-03-2014 01:30 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

It has been a truly crazy couple of days for me. Most of it has been good, but some of it has been silly. I have been in so many directions that I don't know what to talk about first! I received TWO beautiful gifts from ornament swaps that I participated in this year! I love ornament swaps because it gives me a chance to have something that is made by a fellow woodworker or painter. It is always fun and exciting to give and receive a 'secret' gift from someone who shares...
