My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1124: Finishing Up the Halloween Keys and Ornaments

09-06-2013 11:20 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

Today was the first morning of the season that I had to close the windows and wrap myself in a blanket (and a cat) while writing this morning. I awoke to a definite chill in the air and even though it has been for the most part cloudy and rainy all week, today the sun arose to a beautifully clear sky and the sun is shining. It is going to be a beautiful late summer day. I had to take a drive to Yarmouth yesterday to do some errands, and I noticed a slight blush on the tops of the trees. ...

Victorian Skater Pond Scene #2: Meet "Mr. Snowman"

08-17-2010 03:18 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

“Mr. Snowman” is the second of the Skating Pond series which I am recreating. I love his little plaid scarf! Painting plaids is really fun and a bit of a challenge when I am doing so on such a tiny piece. He also looks a little more ‘fluffy’ in person. I am just going to keep scanning in the pieces now for consistency. When they are all done, I will take real photos using a camera and they may look a bit different. The snowman in the original set looked kind of ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #372: Two New Designs

06-16-2011 12:58 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

Finally it is a day when I woke up to a clear sky and sunshine. It has been quite overcast and rainy for the past several days. I think the last time it was sunny out was Saturday when I washed the car. I have been waiting for a bright day so I can take some pictures of the latest projects with some natural light. Usually I use artificial light, but I like to experiment with both, as some things just look better with natural light. One day I will have to get some photography lights, but n...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1002: Multi-tasking

04-05-2013 11:19 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 8 comments »

This is such a busy time for me, as I have project going in many directions. The days just fly by and neither Keith or I can believe how quickly time is passing. It is Friday already and another week is coming to a close. While I did accomplish a great deal, I still have a bit more to do to button up these projects. We also have a wholesale order to fill, as the Artist’s Club accepted the painted version of the mask ornaments that I designed a couple of months ago (that seems lik...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1057: The Next Project

06-12-2013 10:40 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

After arising late yesterday morning (Nearly 7am – late for me anyway!) I actually had a productive day and I accomplished a great deal. I managed to really stay focused on things and got the things I needed to do finished in a ‘reasonable amount of time’ – whatever that is. The site is updated and we were once again pleased with the response we have had not only from our mailing list subscribers, but people in general. It is nice to be able to look at what we acc...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #942: More Masks

01-24-2013 12:49 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 7 comments »

I need to make this entry short and sweet because I am already behind for the day. I was having an issue with my USB hub this morning that meant that not only did my tablet mouse not work, but I was also unable to transfer images to the computer from my camera. I spent the first two hours of my day first crawling around playing with wires. I couldn’t understand it because even though my tablet is four years old, usually things like that just don’t ‘quit’ without i...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1390: Ready to Cut my New SLEIGH!

08-28-2014 11:50 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 0 comments »

I have to admit that the past couple of weeks have not been easy. Please understand that I am NOT whining about things, but I haven't been feeling my usual self and as a designer, that affects just about everything that I do. The closing of the magazines has really taken a toll on me. It is getting better each day, but I feel as if I would be lying to you all if I put on a front when I wrote here each day and acted as if I wasn't affected. After all, for nearly seventeen years I ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #402: The Benefits of Teaching

07-16-2011 01:27 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 11 comments »

Teaching a large group of people with lots of different levels of expertise can be a challenge. I must admit, when I was approached to teach a class here on scroll sawing, I felt a little intimidated. After seeing all the beautiful projects here from so many talented woodworkers, my first reaction was to wonder what I could possibly teach them. I was first asked in March, just before leaving for the show that I lectured at in Saratoga Springs, New York. At that point it had been several...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #977: Everything Updated - Newsletter Sent

03-07-2013 11:50 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

Yesterday I actually reached all of my goals. I must have set them too low. (Just kidding!) It was one of those days however where I did stay focused the entire day and was able to tick off things one by one and I finished just about everything that I wanted to get done for the day. It doesn’t always turn out that way. It is a good feeling to accomplish like that. I finished all of my new pattern packets, answered dozens of emails and filled orders, did my part of getting the sit...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1125: On to Making Pattern Packets

09-07-2013 10:35 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

I had a really productive day yesterday. Not only did I finish painting the last of the new Halloween Key Ornaments and Petite Ornaments, but I also had some time to pre-cut some of the wood kits that I am going to be offering for the two sets. There has been a lot of interest for the wood pieces as well as the patterns, and I am happy to be able to offer wood. Although the keys especially are a bit trickier to cut with all the little bumps and turns, I feel comfortable doing so and I am ...
