My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #333: The Plan

05-08-2011 01:13 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 7 comments »

I don’t feel as if I have anything exciting to write about today. I am not sure if that is a good thing or a bad thing. It seems that I am somewhat in between projects and even though I am in the process of creating new things, I am at a point where things are partially done and not at a point where I am ready to share them with you. I am feeling on edge a bit because I still feel a bit disorganized and need to get a handle on things so that I can move ahead. There are perhaps too m...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #331: Still Deciding

05-06-2011 12:15 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

I want to start off thanking you for sharing your experiences on Etsy yesterday. I received several messages, as well as what was posted here and I am still deciding what I am going to do. One thing that I noticed on Etsy is that they discourage you from posting a link to your own website (unless i am reading it wrong.) If that is the case, then I don’t think I am going to do anything there. They say it would display “avoidance of fees” but I don’t feel that would ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #328: A Pretty Good Day

05-03-2011 12:39 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

Things got incredibly busy yesterday. I spent most of the morning getting things ready to ship to the magazine for the holiday issue. In the process, I knocked over one of the Rocking Reindeer figures and when it hit the floor, it broke. :( Fortunately only the runner came off. I had used epoxy on it and the glue just let go. As I picked it up I dropped it again (sigh!) and the other runner snapped off in the same manner. (DOH!) So I scraped off the remaining glue from the pieces and...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #327: A New Opportunity

05-02-2011 01:13 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

Yesterday seemed to go by very quickly. I spent the day writing the instructions for my two projects that are going to the magazine for the holiday issue. I am pretty much finished up though and the package will be ready to be picked up today or tomorrow. They should have it by the end of the week. Writing instructions is a very important part of my job and it takes a great amount of time. The more I talk with and answer questions for people, I become more aware of what information to ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #326: I Finished My New Project!

05-01-2011 02:53 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 10 comments »

Well, yesterday turned out to be a wonderful day on many levels. The weather was nearly perfect. The sun was shining and it was warm enough for a light jacket. I even had the top down on the car when I made a trip to the grocery store. It is amazing how getting outside for a while can do wonders for your mood. Even if it is a short time. I definitely had “spring fever!” However, there was work to be done and I was also excited about seeing my latest project come to life. ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #324: Still Learning

04-29-2011 02:23 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

I awoke at my usual six a.m. this morning, only to come out on the couch and promptly fall asleep while cuddling my dear kitty Richard. Now I am slightly behind in doing what I wanted to do. Oh, well. I suppose it happens to everyone from time to time. The previous night was restless because I was worrying about my friends so I suppose that I am making up for it. I heard from both Bob (Grizzman) and Leldon yesterday and I was very relieved that neither of them or their families were ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #323: Concerned About My Friends

04-28-2011 01:07 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 8 comments »

I spent the last hour or so trying to find out news about my dear friend Leldon from Cullman, Alabama. Yesterday Cullman was hit with a vicious tornado that wiped out most of downtown. The pictures are devastating and apparently the local hospital was also hit. I worried about him most of the night and even though he was able to check in to his Facebook page after the storm went through his area, he said it was like nothing he has ever seen. I was a bit relieved to see that he reposted on ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #322: More Cutting

04-27-2011 01:21 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

I want to start off by thanking everyone for their help on the oak pieces. I was glad to hear that the problem could be solved and worked on the two pieces yesterday. I made a bleach/water solution and put the board in the shower and sprayed them liberally with the mixture. I let it set for a bit, and then used a small scrub brush to work it in further. After a couple of hours, I rinsed them and allowed them to dry in a well-ventilated place. They really do look much better. By the ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #321: I Need Some Advice from You

04-26-2011 01:07 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 14 comments »

OK, now it is my turn to have the questions. I know there are many seasoned woodworkers out there that will hopefully be able to help me with this: What do I do to get the dark, moldy-looking streaks out of oak? I did my usual of Googling it, and most of the responses said to use some bleach, but I don’t want to ruin the natural color of the oak or have it blotchy or streaky. Let me tell you more about the wood: I have a couple of boards, let’s say half an inch thick an...
