My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1209: Two New Projects on the Go

209 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

You know you have a pretty good life when you wake up in the morning and there are so many (good!) things that you need to do that you don’t know what to begin with. I can’t tell you how many times that has happened to me lately. It seems that more so than ever I have more ideas and projects in my head than time. And that is a wonderful feeling. After taking my week or so off from designing, I find that more so than ever I just can’t wait to get back at it. Even though...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1207: Getting Back in the Swing of Things . . .

211 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

Oh – I just had to laugh at myself . . . I got up early this morning (just before six – which is good considering that I have been sleeping until almost seven over the holidays) and I got to the task of doing some ‘house cleaning’ on my computer. You know the stuff – organizing your files, answering emails, sorting through things – the usual. I got things pretty much under control and I am almost ready for a back up and to start working on my files f...

Woodworking For Therapy #6: The Physical Aspects of Woodworking

216 days ago by Steve Kreins | 9 comments »

I’ve mentioned the emotional and psychological aspects of woodworking for me as I battle liver cancer, but let my share what I have noticed about the Physical Benefits. I was diagnosed two years ago and I have had surgery to remove part of my liver, RFA (radio frequency ablation) which burns out new tumors, and now I’m going onto Nexavar, which is an oral chemo therapy to slow down the growth of new tumors (nasty stuff). All this being said, I’m one pooped Papa! BEFORE Be...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1188: Another Update to Our Site!

234 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

Even though Keith and I usually don’t feel like we are adding a lot of new patterns, it seems that our product line is growing by leaps and bounds. Our “loose” goal is to put out a newsletter about twice a month introducing our new designs and letting people know what we are up to and while I thought that would be something that would be difficult to maintain, I find that the newsletter are never short of new items or announcements. I guess we are both pretty busy. I rea...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1185: Re-painting Designs to Create the Pattern

237 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

I had a wonderful fun and relaxing day yesterday. Although – my idea of ‘relaxing’ may not be what you are used to seeing. I had an early dentists’ appointment. The tooth he fixed a couple of weeks ago was having some issues and he needed to do an adjustment on it. I do have a great dentist and he always seems to get me in quickly when I need him. This wasn’t an emergency though and I had called a couple of days ago and he was able to see me early yesterday...

Side project #1: Intarsia map

238 days ago by BJODay | 0 comments »

I came to a point where I was stuck on my table project. While pondering a solution to my current problem, I thought I would fill in the down time with something small. I once saw an intarsia map. It was pretty cool looking. I thought that would be fun to do. So I started making a map of Wisconsin, with each county a separate piece of wood. My original idea was to use local woods. Red oak, maple and willow in the south. White pine, red pine and birch in the north. I abandoned this plan and...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1184: The Time Machine of Designing

238 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

I had to switch gears yesterday and jump from snowmen and snow globes to chicks and spring colors. I suppose that is part of what I really enjoy about my job – I am never working on anything long enough to be ‘bored’ with it. This is truly an exciting time of year for me. I know that I can say that just about any time of year, but with the holiday season upon us, it seems that I am working on more projects and directions and the days pass by very quickly. I am sure that p...
