My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1547: "Almost" Finished

05-05-2015 12:16 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

I did a lot of finishing touches on my haunted carousel yesterday. It was time to do finish up the final touches that I wanted to include before the final assembly and what I call the 'presentation' photographs. These were odds and ends and somewhat 'afterthoughts' that came to mind after finishing certain sections. I had intended to show all the final photos today, but by the time I finished getting everything ready, it was after 10pm last night and I was just too tired ...

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 #1545: Carousel Benches

05-01-2015 12:15 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

I am going to keep this post short today, as I have lots that I need to accomplish. It seems (as always) that time is absolutely flying by. I can't believe it is already May. There were still some remnents of snow on the ground the other day and it is odd to think that in a few weeks, I (hopefully) will be able to sit at the beach. I noticed this morning though that the grass is a greener shade of brown. Little by little, the plants and critters are beginning to awaken. When I go to sleep...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1544: Website Updated

04-30-2015 11:41 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

It is getting to be that time again (actually, it is a little late!) for our next website update announcement. We usually try to send out a newsletter about every other week, but this time was just a tad longer. I have been somewhat side tracked with my haunted carousel project and I am afraid that I don't have anything new to offer this time around. I think that is a first for me, but in seeing the results of my last couple of weeks of work, I know it will be worth the time and effort. A...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1543: Main Carousel Construction DONE!

04-29-2015 12:07 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 9 comments »

Yesterday was a really good day for me. A milestone even. After weeks of wracking my brain and trying to figure out the best way to build my "Scary-Go-Round" Haunted Carousel, I finally decided on trying a method and cut out the pieces and THEY WORKED! With all the woodworking and small project construction that I do on a daily basis, you would think that this would be 'easy-peasy' for me, but that really wasn't the case. If I were making this a one of a kind projec...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1542: Electronics Makeover Complete Plus NEW Plaque Patterns

04-27-2015 12:33 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

I was so thrilled to have such a productive weekend! Even though I am 'busy' most days, it sometimes seems like there are times when we feel like we are working hard and in the end, little is accomplished. (Or little is noticed, anyway!) But this weekend, we made big strides on both our home organizational project that we began a couple of months ago, and also I made progress on my "Scary-Go-Round" Haunted Carousel. I woke up today ready to take on another week and the world...

ScrollSaw Information and Resources #68: Should I quit or not

04-24-2015 05:44 PM by jerrells | 8 comments »

OK, I am at the frustration times 10 level. It seems like for the past six months of so NO ONE wants to purchase anything from me. When I started, about five years ago, it seemed that I was getting an order or two per week. Now it seems that I have to wait for the fall craft shows and hope I find a few good ones. I have looked and the list of items I make and gone over it LOTS of times. I keep changing too much depending on how the wind is blowing. I have really settled on three of four ty...

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...
