My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #482: Out of the Zone

10-05-2011 11:50 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

It’s raining again this morning and I am starting to think that I should scroll saw an ark. I think it has rained for about five days straight now, and even though it isn’t violent weather, it just seems like a lot. I usually don’t let the weather get to me, and it certainly hasn’t now, but I have wanted to go for a nice walk in the woods and take in the sites before the leaves all fall. Each day I notice more and more of them are turning golden brown. I am wonde...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #481: I'm Getting an Early Start Today

10-04-2011 12:10 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

I got up early this morning. It was one of those days where you just wake up and feel good and get moving. I suppose that there is a lot on my mind, but that is usually the case and I don’t see today as being much different from every other days. There is always lots to do. It’s still raining (it has been for several days now) and it has been misty and kind of dreary. I am kind of waiting for it to dry up a little bit so I can take a walk in the woods. The trees are startin...

ScrollSaw Information and Resources #14: First Craft Show - It Was Fun

10-03-2011 02:51 PM by jerrells | 5 comments »

As any or you know who have looked at my postings for the past month or so I attended my first craft show last Saturday. This was a local event at a mission location of my Church. Seemed to be a safe place to start and it helped a cause the I well support. Overall I think I did fairly well. On of the first rules of craft shows is to recover the amount of your booth space. I did that in the first hour. Secondly is to sell some product and I well did that. Thirdly is to gauge the quality of ...

Online Scroll Saw Class - Incredibly Fun Adventures in Scroll Sawing #10: Lesson 10 - Cutting Negative Designs

10-01-2011 04:56 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 8 comments »

In scroll sawing, there are several different types of ways to make a nice design. Some people make beautiful portraits by playing with lights and shadows. Here is an example of portrait designs: The above portrait was designed by my partner Keith. I have not yet done much portrait cutting, but there are many scrollers here such as Scroll3r, KnotCurser and William who do really nice work on them. Another type of design is what is referred to as a ‘positive’ design. I...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #478: Finding My Comfort Zone

10-01-2011 12:38 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

I really feel good about yesterday. It was one of those days where everything just marched along as it should and in the end, I felt like I really accomplished a lot. I felt good and I stayed really focused on what I wanted to accomplish and by the time the day was complete, I had done what I had set out to do and more. There were few distractions and I really had fun too. One of the most important things that I did was to get my next lesson up. It had been a couple of weeks since I post...

Online Scroll Saw Class - Incredibly Fun Adventures in Scroll Sawing #9: Lesson 9 - Cutting Bevels on the Scroll Saw

09-30-2011 11:18 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 18 comments »

Well, you all should have had time to practice cutting all the inside curves and corners on the frames of the practice patterns that I gave you in the previous lessons. Now we should all be ready to move on to learning how to cut on a bevel. One of the reasons that I like the scroll saw so much is because it is a very versatile tool. For a relatively minimal start up cost, you can get a tool that has the ability to make a great variety of projects. For many years, my scroll saw and ...

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 #470: Holy Distractions, Batman! (But oh, aren't they fun?) :)

09-23-2011 01:03 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

You know that feeling you get when you see a project and you just HAVE to make it? Well, that happened to me the other day. On Tuesday I received my copy of Creative Woodworks and Crafts magazine and I saw the most darling little compound cut bats in it that were designed by my friend Diana Thompson. They were right there flying around on the cover: Well, Geeze Louise! WHY did she have to go and make something so darn cute?!? Doesn’t she know I have other things to do??? I...

ScrollSaw Information and Resources #13: Being Productive in Scrollsaw Projects

09-23-2011 01:37 AM by jerrells | 2 comments »

As one can see, by all the projects I have posted lately, I am almost ready for my first craft show. However after all the cuttine of various projects I am wondering if the is a more productive method of scrollsaw cutting. YES, I know stack is the first and only method I know about. If you are able to stack cut three projects at the same time then I think I reach a productivity breakeven popint. However it is not possible with all of the patterns I cut. Second, the seasoned knowledge of...
