My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1488: "Art Play Date" 2015 Launched!

02-01-2015 12:51 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

Well, it seemed like January just flew by! What has started out to be a mild winter has turned into a lot of snow, wind and sleet. I think that yesterday we had the biggest snowfall yet for this year, and they are predicting 30-40 more cm of snow tomorrow.  Winter is definitely here.I think the month went by quickly for me because I had so much to do. My work schedule was even what I would consider heavy – and it takes a lot for that to be the case. I had several deadlines to get m...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1487: One More Version of Ice Skates

01-31-2015 01:45 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

One of the biggest problems that I have is deciding on a 'version' of how to make a certain design. I suppose that I have been designing so long, that I realize that not everyone has the same taste and preferences. It is rare that when I think of something new to make that I only think of it in one way. Since I design things for a living, I always try to appeal to the most people possible. This often means including more than one style of the same item, and allowing the customers to c...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1486: My Art Play Date Projects DONE!

01-30-2015 01:50 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

It is with much relief that I am writing this morning. It isn't usual that I get stressed out over doing a project, but these past few weeks have been somewhat worrisome to me. I mentioned the other day that I was invited to participate in the Art Play Date online class event, and while I was thrilled to be asked to teach, I was somewhat intimidated. After all, the line up of teachers included many teachers that I have followed and admired since I began painting. These were what we c...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1484: Art Play Date 2015

01-28-2015 01:50 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

We were very fortunate that the first 'blizzard' of the season wasn't as fierce as predicted. Oh – we got snow alright. And some pretty intense howling winds as well. It is hard to say how much we wound up with in the end, but I am thinking it averaged about a foot. With the wind so strong you can see grassy areas in places and the drifts are two feet high in others. Such is winter in Nova Scotia.I never mind the cold and snow. I much prefer it to the sometimes muggy he...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1483: New Adventures in Publishing!

01-26-2015 01:44 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

All this month I have been working in many directions. I know to some of you that is nothing new, but this month it seems that I have skipped posting a little more than usual – not because I have not be doing anything, but pretty much the opposite. When I do projects for myself, I never mind showing you all the processes and steps along the way. I love sharing this part of things with you all because I know that many of my readers here have their own businesses, and I think it some...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1482: Better Late than Never

01-24-2015 02:57 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

I am checking in a little late today because yesterday the day got away from me and I was doing the final editing and proofreading on my SLD489 Layered Heart Damask Box with Monogram pattern. I actually finished everything up early this morning, and I sent all the orders out from last night for the patterns. If you ordered one and I missed you, please let me know and I will get it to you right away. :)We finished our site update yesterday. And in addition to the pattern for the above desig...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1481: Some More New Designs

01-23-2015 01:32 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

Today's post will be quick. (Yes! I know I always say that!) But I really will try because I have lots to do today and need to keep moving. We are getting ready for another site update, and hopefully we will have everything in place by tomorrow. Both Keith and I have some new patterns that we want to post and we hope to put some different patterns on special as well. I am still writing up the packets for my two new scroll sawing patterns and I should be done by this afternoon (barrin...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1480: If First You Don't Succeed . . .

01-21-2015 01:21 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 8 comments »

I always like sharing my triumphs here on the blog. It feels great to accomplish something positive and be able to share it with you all, my readers. But sometimes when I do something, it doesn't work out exactly as I have planned. (I know! Hard to believe, right???) I never mind telling you all about those times either though because I really want people to understand that being successful does NOT mean having everything work out perfectly every time. Anyone who tells you different is ly...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1478: Some Assembly Required

01-19-2015 12:36 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

I can't believe another weekend has passed by already! It seems like the time is just flying by and here we are already halfway finished with January. That is probably good news for those of you who don't like winter. As I write this morning, there are gusts of wind blowing outside as well as sporadic rain. Spring is right around the corner. I took an unscheduled day Saturday to travel up the valley with Keith. He had purchased something from Kajiji and was going to meet the sell...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1475: Busy with "Business"

01-13-2015 01:26 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

Yesterday was one of those crazy/busy days that seemed to be over before it began. It seemed like the every day business tasks (answering emails, filling orders, talking to customers) filled the majority of the time. Before I knew it, it was getting dark and I was running out of steam.  I am not at all complaining about this, as I realize it is part of having a business that is successful, but I am afraid it doesn't make for much interesting blog reading for you. So I decided to show...
