My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1474: Comfort Zone

01-12-2015 02:09 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

The world we live in is ever-changing. That is probably one thing that we can be absolutely sure of. Since the fall of Creative Woodworks magazine, Paintworks, and all of the All American Crafts publications, many of us who are in the designing and creative industry were dealt a harsh reminder of just how volatile being a free lance designer can be. We have the freedom of choosing what we do with each day. We don't have to 'punch in' and account to a cranky boss or super...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1472: Site Updated - New Catalog and Patterns

01-08-2015 01:12 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 0 comments »

I am just going to write a short post today to let you all know that we completed another site update. I also will be sending out a newsletter later on today to let our subscribers know the same. Sometimes I sound as if I am repeating myself here, but I do realize that many of you just check in from time to time and don't read my posts every day. In the past I have had people come to me that have missed when I show new products and I understand that not everyone gets to see each post...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1471: Burning the Midnight Oil

01-07-2015 01:38 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

Those of you who read often know that I am a "morning person".  I love getting up in the morning – the earlier the better. Anything after about 5am and I am good to go.Because of that, I don't tend to be a 'night owl'. Usually after dinner I slow down a bit and do some things that don't require a lot of thought or concentration. It is what I consider my 'down time.'But lately, since I have jumped back into full swing after coasting a bit in Decembe...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1470: Why I do Many Things Twice

01-05-2015 01:36 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

I had a good and busy weekend. It feels really good to be back to work and return to something that resembles 'normal'. Between the past several weeks of one thing or another, I haven't really felt like I was in a good 'production mode' for a while. But that is fine, as we all need a break from our regular routine once in a while. Usually I go pretty much non-stop and even when I take time 'off' I am doing something work related. Slowing down a bit for the past mon...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1469: Back to Business

01-03-2015 12:43 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

I had a good month taking it slower and enjoying the holidays. But now it is time to get back to working full steam. While slowing down was something that I felt was needed, somehow the ideas kept coming at the same pace and I feel that I have even more things that I want to make.  Time is ticking . . . I am excited about just about every aspect of my work right now. The woodworking part is as fun as ever. The painting part is also exciting. I even look forward to cutting out surfac...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1468: The Best Year Yet!

01-02-2015 12:32 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

I woke up to a blanket of white snow yesterday. It was the first significant snow of the year for us. We had a couple of light snowfalls before, but nothing that really stuck or looked nice. In fact, everyone seemed to be commenting on how warm the weather had been. Keith and I had gone for a walk the previous evening (New Year's Eve). We walked down our street to the end of the block where the old mill was located. It is always a nice walk – especially at night when the stars ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1467: Goodbye 2014 - Hello 2015!

12-31-2014 12:59 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

It is hard to believe that the year is done. I must be getting old because it seems like not so long ago when we were welcoming the new millennium. I remember how everyone was concerned that the computers wouldn't be able to handle the change of the date and people were so worried. But that was 15 year ago! The year 2014 was a good one for me. Like anyone though, I have had my ups and downs. I think the most significant thing that I noticed was that many of my family members, friends...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1460: Bringing Joy Throughout the Year

12-11-2014 01:39 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

There are so many wonderful reasons that I take the time to write here nearly every day. Of course, in the beginning it was to get our little company more exposure and let more people know we are here. But as time progresses, I have come to realize the many, many other benefits of blogging. Not only have I been able to communicate better with my customers and bring them information regarding a variety of techniques, but I have made some real and lasting friendships as well. That – ...

GET THE FAMILY A SCROLL SAW FOR CHRISTMAS!

12-11-2014 09:20 AM by stefang | 7 comments »

One present almost every family would enjoy is a scroll saw. Younger kids can use them too with a little instruction and supervision. Every one in the family can use it and make a lot of great projects from 1/8” ply or solids. There really is no limit to what you can do with them. They are great for making models, boxes, chess pieces, Holiday stuff and much much more. They are also wonderful as a supplement as a tool to make detailed stuff for regular woodworking projects. It is a tool ...

Stanley #26: the rebuild,part 2

12-11-2014 02:44 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Rest of the plane is now done. Now comes the rear handle. Last seen, it had a pair of extra brass screws in it’s top, and a crack near the bottom Tried to glue the larger crack back together with a Locktite CA glue. Didn’t look like it should. The top was missing a “horn” and had two screws holding what was left. Rumaged around in the “Spares” box. The box where the frog’s yokes were found. A handle was in there about the same si...
