Making a Viking Bowl Candy Dish

12-05-2014 04:17 PM by stefang | 18 comments »

You may have seen my project post here which explains the background for this design. Several readers expressed their interest in a blog to show how to make one of these, so here it is. BackgroundSince this is not a replica of any genuine historic article, but rather a project inspired by the viking ships and their old time bear mugs you should feel free to put your own twist on this. That’s what the Viking carvers did anyway and no two of the inspirational pieces are alike anywa...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1423: More Pull Toys

10-15-2014 10:59 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

Yesterday was a wonderful and relaxing day for me.  Not only did we have the pleasure of Keith's mom's company all day, but she brought with all the remains of our Thanksgiving dinner from Sunday. Talk about a treat! :)I truly love turkey dinners and I am not the type of person that gets tired of it easily. Since our families are a much smaller these days, creating an entire meal usually means lots and lots of leftovers. Some may complain about that, but not me! I can think of a ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1311: Some Beautiful Work and a Video From a Friend

05-06-2014 10:37 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

Today I am doing some cutting for the topper for my banners and writing the patterns packet, so I really don't have much of my own work to show you. However, I thought it would be a great opportunity for me to share a video with you that my friend Leldon Maxcy just made on how to cut inlay pieces for scroll sawn ornaments.I have known Leldon for probably about 15 years.  That's pretty long considering how young he is!  I met him at a woodworking show when he was only a ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1242: A Busy Week Ahead

02-10-2014 12:44 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

I can’t believe that after getting up on time, it seems I am already running late! (It is just after 8am as I am writing, and so much to do today!) I spent the morning catching up on emails and so forth, as I took a day (partially) away from the computer yesterday to have a little break and accomplish some things. It is a constant batter for me between staying connected and getting actual things done. I find that it can be so easy to spend the entire day ‘visiting’ with ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1195: Snow, Memories and Frienships

12-17-2013 12:53 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

As the sun begins to illuminate the morning sky, I look out and notice that once again the snow is gently falling on us here in Nova Scotia. This time is isn’t the windy, violent type of snowfall that occurred the other day, but rather the soft, large flakes that gently float to the ground. It is getting lighter out, and I can see that already several fresh inches of snow have accumulated on the ground. As yesterday things were all cleared up from the weekend storm and once again th...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1134: Getting Back to Routine

09-23-2013 11:38 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

Good morning on this beautiful Monday. Some time over the weekend, the season of autumn crept in and it is amazing how profound the changes in the morning are even though it is only a few days old. As I wake up each morning, I notice that it is just a bit darker outside, and the cool, crisp air simply smells of the change of season. I look across the road to the trees along the river and each day notice that they are beginning to blush a bit and every so slightly the leaves are changing c...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1122: More Spooky Things

09-04-2013 10:37 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

I did accomplish a great deal yesterday, although much of it was the type of stuff that I can’t really show pictures of. I spent most of the morning and part of the afternoon editing the photographs that are going to be included with my Snowflake Damask project for the magazine. I shipped out the project already, and I must say I really hated to see that one go. I probably won’t see it back until sometime next spring. I did get to spend some time to do some painting, although ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1064: Patience and Flexibility - Two Ingredients for Success

06-21-2013 10:41 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

Today’s post will once again be rather quick. On Wednesday night, we received a reorder for Haunted Masquerade kits from Artist’s Club and we needed to switch gears so we could get them done: I was happy to get this order so early in the year. That means that they are doing well and hopefully there will be more orders to follow. We immediately turned into “production mode” and got about half the order done yesterday. The printing of the patterns actually ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #946: Pushing to a Higher Level

01-29-2013 12:32 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 15 comments »

Yesterday I got a little bit side tracked. Not really too far off the path I was heading, but just enough to change gears for a day and try something new. So it was for a good cause. I often receive many comments from people that I call ‘regulars’ here on the Lumberjock site. Even though this site is quite large at over 50,000 members, as with any place, we seem to fall into a niche or corner of the site where we feel accepted and comfortable. I am not different, as when I wr...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #640: Sharing Our Passion

03-14-2012 11:18 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 10 comments »

There are many different avenues that one can take and still be on a creative path. While having choices is good, there are times when there are almost too many things to choose from and only so many hours in the day. While most of us are familiar with the phrase ‘spreading ourselves too thin’, there are times when things are not as defined as we would like them to be as far as which path to follow and it is hard not to want to do everything at once. I often feel that this is t...
