My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1433: Night Shift

10-28-2014 01:22 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

Most of you all know that I am a morning person. Any time after 5am is a good time for me to get up and start my day. I love the morning quiet and I feel like I accomplish lots of work during that calm time of the day. Give me a cup of coffee, a cat or two on my lap, my computer and I am good to go! Because of this, I try to stop working some time before 9pm. While that sounds like a long day to some, you all have to remember that I really love what I do and most of the time it doesn'...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1432: Anticipation

10-27-2014 12:43 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

I must admit that I awakened today feeling a bit overwhelmed. As I thought of all the things I need to accomplish today, I sit here this morning at my computer wondering how I will ever get everything done. I even considered not writing here today, but since I haven't written in the past two days I really didn't want to miss again. After all – I think that by putting my thoughts into writing each morning, it really helps keep me organized and grounded and sharpens my focus on wh...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1430: Site Update In Progress

10-23-2014 11:22 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

Lately we have been trying to keep updating our site about every two weeks. It seems with the holiday season approaching, we have lots of new things and we don't like to overwhelm everyone with too many new choices at a time. I guess it is a good problem to have. Since I do more painting things, they tend to take a little longer to complete than the scrolling patterns that I do. And even when I do scroll pieces, I like to offer different 'versions' so that our customers can c...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1428: More Christmas Pull Toys

10-21-2014 12:35 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 0 comments »

Sometimes no matter how much you get done in a day, it doesn't seem like enough. I know I am not alone in this way of thinking because I see many of my friends are going through the same thing. One of the best parts about having so many creative friends is that we all can relate to each other in terms of "deadlines" and "getting things done". It seems from August until the end of the year so many people are frantically creating for holiday shows, craft fairs and the up...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1425: Cutting, Cutting and more Cutting

10-18-2014 11:45 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

The past few weeks, I have really lived up to my name "Scrollgirl". It seems I have spent more time than ever at the scroll saw. But that is a good thing, right? It goes to show me that it may very well be possible to be able to design both woodworking and painting patterns and keep things in balance. It helps tremendously having a partner like Keith. He is so talented and when I meander over to the painting side of things for  a while, he is always busy keeping our scroll...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1424: Making "Pretties"

10-17-2014 12:03 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

I know that I haven't been blogging as regularly as usual. There have been some things going on that have just sort of gotten in the way. Part of it was because I have been fighting a cold and it has taken its toll on me a little. I don't have my usual energy and I have been working at a slower pace and sometimes I feel like it is best to get to my daily tasks rather then take the time to write about them. I speak often about how busy we have become, and I certainly appreciate th...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1422: Here, There and Everywhere

10-14-2014 12:22 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

Have you ever tried to do several things at once?  I feel that is how my day went yesterday. I was doing some drawing, sanding some orders to go out and I even began painting my new Painting With Friends design (inspired by Terrye French) that promises to be a really fun and cute project. I actually didn't know which direction to head first. Keith was also busy, as he headed to the lumber yard and spent the afternoon and evening at our friend Bernie's shop planing and dressi...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1421: Time Travel

10-13-2014 10:51 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 0 comments »

After celebrating Thanksgiving the past two days here in Canada, I feel refreshed and ready to get back to some serious designing. Even though it is still the early part of October, I know how quickly this time of year seems to pass as we busy ourselves for the upcoming holiday season. I am always amazed at how the pace seems to pick up this time of year and time passes even quicker than usual. It is sometimes difficult for me because I always seem to have so many different ideas that I ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1419: New Patterns Up on Our Site

10-09-2014 12:03 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

Today's blog will just be a short announcement that all the new patterns are available on our site. I have received lots of emails from those of you asking when they would be ready, and they all are at this time. We added several new patterns to the site and we are very proud of them. There are some holiday patterns, as well as some for general occasions. Keith's SLDK396 Self-Framing Love Always plaque pattern would be great for a wedding gift, anniversary, or any time you just w...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1418: Finishing Up

10-08-2014 11:53 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

I kept myself pretty busy yesterday finishing up the new projects that I created for the site update. Today I will be writing the instructions for them and hopefully getting a newsletter out either later on tonight or early tomorrow. We have been trying to send out a newsletter every other week or so, as we feel that time frame is comfortable for our customers and is a good goal to complete our next round of designs. Now that we don't have Creative Woodworks and Crafts magazine to think a...
