My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1483: New Adventures in Publishing!

01-26-2015 01:44 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

All this month I have been working in many directions. I know to some of you that is nothing new, but this month it seems that I have skipped posting a little more than usual – not because I have not be doing anything, but pretty much the opposite. When I do projects for myself, I never mind showing you all the processes and steps along the way. I love sharing this part of things with you all because I know that many of my readers here have their own businesses, and I think it some...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1482: Better Late than Never

01-24-2015 02:57 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

I am checking in a little late today because yesterday the day got away from me and I was doing the final editing and proofreading on my SLD489 Layered Heart Damask Box with Monogram pattern. I actually finished everything up early this morning, and I sent all the orders out from last night for the patterns. If you ordered one and I missed you, please let me know and I will get it to you right away. :)We finished our site update yesterday. And in addition to the pattern for the above desig...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1481: Some More New Designs

01-23-2015 01:32 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

Today's post will be quick. (Yes! I know I always say that!) But I really will try because I have lots to do today and need to keep moving. We are getting ready for another site update, and hopefully we will have everything in place by tomorrow. Both Keith and I have some new patterns that we want to post and we hope to put some different patterns on special as well. I am still writing up the packets for my two new scroll sawing patterns and I should be done by this afternoon (barrin...

Scrolling with Asthma #2: Follow up Number 1

01-21-2015 08:18 PM by jerrells | 3 comments »

So I had a visit with my breathing Doctor today. The simple fact is I have asthma and that can’t be fixed. Controlled is another matter. First you must know what are the “triggers: that set you off”. At this time I am not sure but will have allergy test later. The real issue is that what might make you cough or sneeze might send me to ER. It depends on many factors. In the short term, if I am in the shop I MUST have on dusk masks and the dust filters MUST be on. Like most...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1480: If First You Don't Succeed . . .

01-21-2015 01:21 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 8 comments »

I always like sharing my triumphs here on the blog. It feels great to accomplish something positive and be able to share it with you all, my readers. But sometimes when I do something, it doesn't work out exactly as I have planned. (I know! Hard to believe, right???) I never mind telling you all about those times either though because I really want people to understand that being successful does NOT mean having everything work out perfectly every time. Anyone who tells you different is ly...

Scrolling with Asthma #1: My dumb move with Asthma

01-19-2015 02:27 PM by jerrells | 4 comments »

I have asthma and have for many years. Been treating it for the last year. This past week we have been having our kitchen remodeled plus I was scrolling some soft maple (of course without a mask). One or both of these sent me into a severe asthma attack that put me in ICU and an over night stay in the hospital. I was released the next day and currently on steroids for five days and a Doctor follow up first of this week. The purpose of starting this bold is to share information and to seek ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1478: Some Assembly Required

01-19-2015 12:36 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

I can't believe another weekend has passed by already! It seems like the time is just flying by and here we are already halfway finished with January. That is probably good news for those of you who don't like winter. As I write this morning, there are gusts of wind blowing outside as well as sporadic rain. Spring is right around the corner. I took an unscheduled day Saturday to travel up the valley with Keith. He had purchased something from Kajiji and was going to meet the sell...

Making of a 30" wolf head

01-18-2015 05:11 PM by grosa | 1 comment »

Hello guys,On my posts I show large scale work and I mention templates to cut cutting templates to cut on a pin router. I realize some of you might not know what all that means so, I decided to do this blog to show you what has to happen to create a large scale wall art. It would be nice to just cut it out on the scroll saw but I am limited to 26” on my RBI. You all know what that’s like. So I draw the piece full scale and make changes as I go. You can see this in picture 1 where ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1477: New Scrollsaw Patterns

01-17-2015 01:10 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

It seems like forever since I designed a woodworking pattern. With all the new directions that I have been working in (not to mention the holidays!) there were several other deadlines that I needed to meet in other areas of my business. I try to do as much as I can with each part of the business – both painting and scroll sawing – but now that the magazine that I worked with for the last 15 years is no longer there, other things have taken its place as far as my time goes.&nb...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1475: Busy with "Business"

01-13-2015 01:26 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

Yesterday was one of those crazy/busy days that seemed to be over before it began. It seemed like the every day business tasks (answering emails, filling orders, talking to customers) filled the majority of the time. Before I knew it, it was getting dark and I was running out of steam.  I am not at all complaining about this, as I realize it is part of having a business that is successful, but I am afraid it doesn't make for much interesting blog reading for you. So I decided to show...
