My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1306: Some Woodworking Designs for Newer Scrollers

05-01-2014 11:31 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

It always feels so good when I finish accomplishing my deadlines.  Whether self-imposed or work that I have to get done for others, I try to treat them with equal importance and prioritize them accordingly. Lately it seems that I have been spinning many different plates.  I know some of you who know me don't see that as being very unusual – and it reality it is not – but sometimes it just kind of gets to me when there isn't a break for a while.  I think...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1304: Really? You made THAT with a Scroll Saw!?!

04-29-2014 11:00 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 11 comments »

My goodness I had FUN yesterday! I always have fun, but yesterday pushed the day to another level. It felt so good to see the ideas that have been living in my head come to life. And they came out even CUTER than I could have ever imagined. I have been thinking about these designs for several weeks now. After seeing the darling embossed paper from a shop on Etsy (Ravenwood Treasures#) the wheels in my head were really turning! I immediately ordered some paper and began planning on h...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1303: Paper Roses

04-28-2014 12:08 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 8 comments »

The weekend turned out to be incredibly productive. I love when that happens. What started out as a bottleneck of cluttered ideas that had me in a muddle soon began to flow in a good direction. By taking some time and sorting through them and considering them one at a time, I was able to move things forward in an orderly manner. And I am very happy with the results. Sometimes, I have to stop looking at the entire forest at once. It is utterly confusing to me and tends to stop me in my ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1294: Website Updated

04-17-2014 11:56 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

Yesterday I spent the day writing our bi-monthly newsletter and sending it out to our customers. We have been doing pretty well with gaining new subscribers as out business continues to grow. We are also happy that we seem to be figuring out how to send a proper newsletter so that the mail servers don’t view it as SPAM and block it. For a while, we were getting several hundred emails bounced back to us whenever we sent out an issue. This was annoying because not only did it clog up my...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1292: Ooh, La La! Look at "Paris" Now!

04-15-2014 11:48 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

Yesterday I showed the new “Paris” plaque that I designed. I really enjoyed making it and I loved the simplicity of the design as well as the pretty fretwork frame. I really appreciated the nice comments that were made regarding it, as I always try to make something that is both fun to make as well as appealing. I loved the color of the natural maple that I used for the plaque. But what really had inspired me to make this plaque was one of the memory papers that I had com...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1291: A New Project

04-14-2014 12:17 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 7 comments »

I found that I needed a couple of days to catch up with things. As our little business grows, with that growth comes a need to spend more time on the administration duties. I am not complaining about this at all, as I realize that it is part of the process and I am happy that so many people are interested and asking questions and learning. I am thrilled that others are learning from our experiences and I try to help them whenever I am able. But that sometimes means that there is less tim...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1288: Choices

04-09-2014 12:40 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

Well, I am finally in the home stretch of making my decoupage bunny ornaments. It isn’t that they were difficult or complicated to make, but there has been so many things that have come up in between that needed my attention that they have been sitting on the sidelines, patiently waiting for me to finish them. I love this project because it combines three of my favorite forms of creating – woodworking, painting and needlework. They are cut from 1/8” Baltic birch plywo...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1287: A Creative Mix

04-08-2014 12:27 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

It’s funny how I have gotten into the habit of writing here every day. As I am approaching my fourth anniversary of starting my blog, I think of all the time and energy that I put into posting each morning here and it boggles my mind. If someone were to approach me four years ago and tell me that this was my ‘assignment’, I don’t think that I could have pulled it off. But looking back, I realize just how important posting here has been to me on so many levels. Thro...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1284: Bunnies and Flowers and Beads . . . Oh My!

04-04-2014 11:31 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

I don’t know why, but I think the long, cold winter has me longing for spring. Today is the first day of the week that the sun is shining, and there is not a cloud in the sky. While there is still a touch of frost on the grass, I find myself being grateful for each day that passes with no snow. It may seem funny to be thinking like that in April, but for most people this year has been particularly brutal. I personally love the snow, but I think that even I have had my fill and am ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1270: The "Spice" of Life!

03-18-2014 12:22 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 9 comments »

I had a very full day yesterday, but I did manage to achieve my goal of finishing up the other two versions of the Hare Herb Garden Markers pattern that will be featured in the June issue of Creative Woodworks and Crafts magazine. I am very happy with the results, although it didn’t happen without hitting a couple of stumbling blocks and figuring out the processes that I used. But that is part of why I write her and part of the reason I try to offer accompanying articles when I am te...
