My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1625: Purpose and Meaning Through Art

09-23-2015 12:46 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 9 comments »

At some time or another in our lives, most of us search for our purpose here on Earth. The reason we are here. The meaning of what our life is and why we are here in the first place. We want our lives to have meaning and purpose, I believe. We want to think that all the hard work and things we go through on a daily basis are for a reason. That somehow, in some small way we make a difference in the world. That somehow we make it better. There are professions that are obviously noble....

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1624: Little by Little

09-22-2015 12:28 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 7 comments »

Good things take time. I have to keep reminding myself of that. In today's world of 'instant gratification', we sometimes forget that everything we have and want can't always happen in an instant. Sometimes there is just no way around taking the proper steps and doing things methodically. I am often reminded of this with my work. While I see a 'vision' of my finished project in my head, I don't always see the many steps it will require to get to that poin...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1618: Veining Lines

09-09-2015 12:29 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

It felt good to get such nice feedback on my angel ornament project that I showed here yesterday. I am pretty excited about it myself. It felt good to really get something going in a good direction for my very patient woodworking followers. It turned out to be a very busy day. While I was answering the many email that I received, I also had some orders for some wood pieces I had to cut so I shifted gears and went to the saw for a couple of hours. Even though I always have things to do, I...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1612: More New Pattern Designs

08-28-2015 11:56 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

This morning when I sat down here at my spot at my computer, ready to do the mail, my little cat Pancakes hopped right up here and snuggled in. He had greeted me with cooing and 'chirps' this morning and I was heating up my coffee – more enthusiastic than usual. Perhaps it is because he 'knows' that I made some cinnamon shortbread cookies last night and he knows me well enough to remember that I may steal one to have with my coffee for breakfast. He loves cookies and see...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1611: New Designs for Autumn

08-27-2015 11:43 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

I woke up this morning to a cool, gentle rain and the sun wasn't even really up yet. I have noticed this past week that whether it is cloudy or not, it is taking longer and longer to get light in the mornings.Something else changed as well. That cool, crispness is in the air again. After the heavy humidity and warmth that we experienced last week, it seems we have turned another page and are beginning a new chapter of seasons. Autumn is definitely knocking at our door. I never mind t...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1609: Multi-Tasking

08-25-2015 12:02 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

Yesterday I felt a lot more like myself. After a couple of weeks of feeling a bit 'lost' I was back in full swing again working on three different projects at various stages. There's nothing like some good, solid deadlines to kick start us back to productivity!I know I am not alone in feeling this way. I have many friends who design and create all kinds of crafts from woodworking to painting and just about everything in between. I have seen them struggle and I have seen them soar ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1608: Back to Creating

08-24-2015 11:08 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

After a much needed break, I am back and finally feel ready to move forward in a productive manner. It isn't because I have been short of ideas. Actually it is quite the contrary. I have so many things that I want to do that I seem to have been somewhat 'stuck' as to which direction I want to head first. It is as if all the thoughts and ideas have bottle-necked in my head and as a result, I have been quite overwhelmed.Add to that my little back issue that remained (I haven...
