My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1635: Happy Thanksgiving, Canada!

10-12-2015 12:30 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

There are two times when I really feel that I am not living in the USA anymore. One of them is in July, when the US celebrates Independence Day. It is sometimes hard to get used to the 4th of July being just 'another day' here in Canada. Although they do celebrate "Canada Day" – usually within a day or two of the 4th, it somehow just feels different. The other day that I really feel that I am living in a different country than I was raised is Thanksgiving. While i...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1633: Everyday Stuff

10-07-2015 11:35 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

Sometimes when I am at my busiest, I have the least to show you. There are so many things that Keith and I do to keep the business running that is 'un-glamorous' but necessary that sometimes I feel I have nothing interesting to show you in the mornings here. Yesterday was a busy and productive day. On Monday, it was my turn for my Art Play Date 2015 project to play, so I have been busy cutting skate surfaces to ship out to those who requested them: I really loved making these ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1632: Reaching the Goals We Set

10-05-2015 12:43 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

After a rainy and overcast weekend, on this beautiful Monday morning the sun is bright and shining. It looks to be another lovely autumn day here in Nova Scotia. The weather didn't bother me a bit though, as I was focused on doing some 'inside' things and working on some new projects and crossing off those deadlines. It was nice actually to not 'have' to go out anywhere, and I made good use of the time I had. I don't think that I mentioned it here before, but...

Shop stuff #4: Dealing with rust on iron

10-03-2015 05:25 PM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

It’s that time of year again and it seems the question of how to deal with rust on the iron tops of machinery come up in all the forums about now. In response to this I make a quick video of how I deal with it. This is not the only way to do it, but it is inexpensive and works. I hope this is helpful, it is a pretty quick process. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I4RoSUaPPx0

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1631: Self-Challenges

10-02-2015 12:32 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

It felt so good to be caught up yesterday. That, by no means translates to being 'done' with everything – but it more or less means that I am on a workable schedule. For a while there, I thought I was slipping, with getting things completed just under the wire. While I like to have deadlines to pace myself, there are times that the sneak up faster than I anticipate and I find myself wondering if I will be able to meet them. It can be a slippery slope when I don't leave enoug...

My Wife Makes A Pumpkin Door Hanger On The Scroll Saw

09-27-2015 01:27 AM by Chris McDowell | 9 comments »

Watch the video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KdAK5fz7n3A My wife has picked up the scroll saw in the last year. She expressed an interest in scrolling so I bought an entry level Shop Fox 16” scroll saw for her. She’s made plenty of things including the pumpkin door hanger for our front door shown in the picture below. She saw a similar thing at a store, took a picture of it, and made one of her own at home. She has had 7 or 8 orders from people wanting her to make one ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1627: On to the Weekend!

09-25-2015 12:00 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

It is hard to believe that we have another weekend under our belts! But with the mornings getting cooler and the darkness lasting a little longer each day, it is hard to forget that the beautiful summer weather is giving way to autumn. Time surely passes quickly when we are busy! Yesterday I spent the day with Keith updating the site and getting out my bi-weekly newsletter. We changed all the sales on our Pattern Specials page and we added another new pattern that Keith created. This tim...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1626: Update Day

09-24-2015 10:28 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 0 comments »

I got up early this morning and it is still dark two hours later. It is odd how quickly the days get shorter once a certain point is reached. It is getting dark much sooner as well, and I suspect that is why I wound up going to bed shortly after 10pm my time. It just seemed like my day was done. I love these cool, autumn mornings. Even though we are only a day into autumn, it is nice to be able to say that. I sat on the deck yesterday with the cats for a bit, just taking in the warm sun ...
