My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1307: A New Idea in the Works

05-02-2014 10:58 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

I woke up to a dense fog this morning.  I hope it means that it is finally getting warmer. Our weather here in Nova Scotia has still been pretty dull and rainy. But I suppose I should be happy that it isn't snow. Even I have had enough of that. It felt odd to be 'caught up' with everything. It isn't that I don't have anything to do – as I have lots of new ideas that I am anxious to work on – but with nothing really pressing, I find that sometimes it s...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1306: Some Woodworking Designs for Newer Scrollers

05-01-2014 11:31 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

It always feels so good when I finish accomplishing my deadlines.  Whether self-imposed or work that I have to get done for others, I try to treat them with equal importance and prioritize them accordingly. Lately it seems that I have been spinning many different plates.  I know some of you who know me don't see that as being very unusual – and it reality it is not – but sometimes it just kind of gets to me when there isn't a break for a while.  I think...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1304: Really? You made THAT with a Scroll Saw!?!

04-29-2014 11:00 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 11 comments »

My goodness I had FUN yesterday! I always have fun, but yesterday pushed the day to another level. It felt so good to see the ideas that have been living in my head come to life. And they came out even CUTER than I could have ever imagined. I have been thinking about these designs for several weeks now. After seeing the darling embossed paper from a shop on Etsy (Ravenwood Treasures#) the wheels in my head were really turning! I immediately ordered some paper and began planning on h...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1303: Paper Roses

04-28-2014 12:08 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 8 comments »

The weekend turned out to be incredibly productive. I love when that happens. What started out as a bottleneck of cluttered ideas that had me in a muddle soon began to flow in a good direction. By taking some time and sorting through them and considering them one at a time, I was able to move things forward in an orderly manner. And I am very happy with the results. Sometimes, I have to stop looking at the entire forest at once. It is utterly confusing to me and tends to stop me in my ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1294: Website Updated

04-17-2014 11:56 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

Yesterday I spent the day writing our bi-monthly newsletter and sending it out to our customers. We have been doing pretty well with gaining new subscribers as out business continues to grow. We are also happy that we seem to be figuring out how to send a proper newsletter so that the mail servers don’t view it as SPAM and block it. For a while, we were getting several hundred emails bounced back to us whenever we sent out an issue. This was annoying because not only did it clog up my...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1293: New Projects on our Site

04-16-2014 11:20 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

It was a very tumultuous night here in Nova Scotia. I don’t think I heard wind like that in all the years that I had been living here. At least it was warm though, as we heard that nearly everyone located west of us was once again experiencing snow. I fully expected to wake up to more snow on the ground, but it is still very warm and raining. The wind gusts were fierce. They awoke me several times, as the house was actually shaking. At about 3:30 in the morning, we heard our recycl...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1292: Ooh, La La! Look at "Paris" Now!

04-15-2014 11:48 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

Yesterday I showed the new “Paris” plaque that I designed. I really enjoyed making it and I loved the simplicity of the design as well as the pretty fretwork frame. I really appreciated the nice comments that were made regarding it, as I always try to make something that is both fun to make as well as appealing. I loved the color of the natural maple that I used for the plaque. But what really had inspired me to make this plaque was one of the memory papers that I had com...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1291: A New Project

04-14-2014 12:17 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 7 comments »

I found that I needed a couple of days to catch up with things. As our little business grows, with that growth comes a need to spend more time on the administration duties. I am not complaining about this at all, as I realize that it is part of the process and I am happy that so many people are interested and asking questions and learning. I am thrilled that others are learning from our experiences and I try to help them whenever I am able. But that sometimes means that there is less tim...

ScrollSaw Information and Resources #63: I QUIT

04-12-2014 08:35 PM by jerrells | 13 comments »

After many months of thinking on the decision, looking at different ways to do this, having as much input as could be offered, considering all of life’s alternatives, I have decided to give up, quit, stop scroll sawing as a hobby, part time activity, part time business or for the most part anything else. Yes, perhaps I will make one or two items per years that I personally choose to give away as presents BUT nothing more. Many factors have gone into the decision – here are but a few. 1....
