My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #394: And Now For Something Completely Different

07-08-2011 01:26 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 8 comments »

Part of the reason that I like my job so much is that there are so many different aspects involved in the day to day activity of it, it never seems mundane or boring. Sure, it would be great if I could just scroll saw all the time and not have to worry about anything else, but I think that after a while, even that would lose its luster and not be much fun. Having a job that is fun and exciting is something that everyone wants and few people have. We have all heard the saying “It is...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #393: Preparing Patterns

07-07-2011 01:13 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

I woke up this morning to a sunny and hazy day. Although the sun was just rising, I already could tell it was going to be a hot day. Yesterday was probably one of the warmest days of the year here so far. It was sticky and still and slightly uncomfortable. I spent as much time as I could out on the small deck with Pancakes, my kitty, as it was slightly cooler there, but I didn’t have a lot of things that I could do outside, as I needed to do work on my computer. So I sucked it up a...

Online Scroll Saw Class - Incredibly Fun Adventures in Scroll Sawing #1: Introduction - Sign Up and Objective

Hi, Everybody! My name is Sheila Landry, although many of you may know me as ‘Scrollgirl’. I’ve had that nickname for over fifteen years now and chose it because I LOVE SCROLL SAWING! I work as a contributing editor for Creative Woodworks and Crafts magazine and I also have my own pattern business called Sheila Landry Designs where I sell my original scroll saw and painting patterns. I was asked by MsDebbie if I would like to host an online scroll saw class here on...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #390: Lots of Little Things Accomplished

07-04-2011 01:02 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

It’s going to storm here today, it seems. It actually looks quite gloomy. That’s OK though, as I have lots of indoor things to do today and being inside will help me stay on them and get them done. Although it is a holiday in the US, it is a pretty normal Monday here in Canada. I wonder if there will be any mail yet, as it is quite slow in getting back up and running. I had a really good day yesterday. I cleaned up a lot of odds and ends and got things set up for the 72 ska...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #386: Moving To Another Deadline

06-30-2011 12:07 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

I am kind of working in several directions at once these days. That tends to happen when deadlines are coming up and we are in crunch time. I worked on my spider web candle tray and got it sanded and oiled. I also picked on the little charm pieces and got them to where I wanted them. At first I did them and I think they were a bit large. I wanted them smaller than the larger spider that I showed yesterday, but they had to be big enough that the legs wouldn’t be even more fragile a...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #385: Along Came a Spider . . .

06-29-2011 01:21 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 13 comments »

I worked on another candle tray yesterday. I did decide to go with the Halloween them for the time being. Whether it is the right or wrong decision, only time will tell but I wanted to go with my gut this time just to see what would happen. The design I came up with was pretty simple. In cutting it, I found that it was on of the easiest things I have made in a long time. (really) Simple isn’t bad thougha (we talked about that before) and it will be very easy for a new scroll sa...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #383: Decisions, Decisions

06-27-2011 01:52 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

It seems to be one of those days where I am a bit unsettled on which direction to go next. I have about a week left for the deadline on the catalog that gets mailed in early September and I am not quite certain what to do next for submissions. Traditionally, this edition of the catalog is the kick-off for new Christmas items for the upcoming holiday season, but it also introduces many Halloween items too. Since it is probably the last of the large mailings to customers prior to Halloween...

My First Bastone Walnut Burl!

When I was slabbing it you could definately smell the walnut but it was different from the Claro and English. These have great dark black lines that are marbled. Beautiful white sap wood and hart wood. These are pics of some of the slabs. Cutting Wood Is A Blast!!!
