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...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1683: Patience

01-20-2016 01:52 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

I was really happy that so many of you liked the look of the Metallic Lustre Acrylic Wax from DecoArt that I added to my latest scroll saw projects. After allowing it to dry a day, I continued to finish off the project. I know we live in a world where we want immediate results on everything, but sometimes we just need to wait a little bit and let things do their job or run their course for the best results. Not only when crafting, but in many situations in our lives. After posting m...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1001: Back to Business

04-04-2013 11:22 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 10 comments »

Well, now that the fanfare of yesterdays’ big milestone is over, it is back to business here for me. I am looking forward to the next thousand or so entries and enjoying all the wonderful things we can learn together and share. Here at my place, I am in the midst of putting together no less than eight projects. It is truly a woodworkers’/painters’ dream come true, as each one is just a bit different and will require some different techniques to bring it to the finish li...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1589: Finding a Balance

07-13-2015 11:18 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

"There are only two days in the year that nothing can be done. One is called yesterday and the other is called tomorrow, so today is the right day to love, believe and mostly live." – Dalai LamaI was trying to decide what to write about this morning and I saw this on my Facebook timeline. It was a posted by a dear friend of mine named Charlotte who has her own decorative painting business called Roma Land Woodcrafts.  I have known Charlotte for a couple of years now and w...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #964: Some Patriotic Word Art

02-19-2013 12:28 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

I had a lot of fun yesterday. While everyone was shoveling out and dealing with the snow, I was able to work on the scroll saw cutting out my new design. I was happy because I was having fun and doing something that I loved to do. What could be better? I had found a nice piece of poplar to cut my design from. While I may have preferred something a little harder, like maple, since I was planning to ‘decorate’ these pieces I decided that poplar would do fine and it would be a ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #138: Getting the Picture

10-19-2010 12:56 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

I am glad that yesterday is behind me. I am not (really) complaining, but it is good that today is a new day and will be much less tedious than yesterday. It wasn’t disastrous or anything like that, but it was just the kind of day where it seemed that I had to work much harder than usual to achieve not greatness, but mediocrity. I don’t mind working that hard for greatness. In that case, the end results is its own reward. I worked much harder yesterday than I did on the day w...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #658: Wonderful Progress

04-01-2012 11:26 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 10 comments »

Yesterday I had a really good day cutting. I spent the majority of the day at the scroll saw working on cutting the pieces for the decorative painting kits that I am supplying. I made a huge dent in the pile – much bigger than I would have anticipated – and with only a couple more hours of cutting to do today, I will finish the first leg of my mission. Of the hundred dozen pieces that I need for the first pattern, I successfully cut 72 dozen. Here is what 72 dozen pieces lo...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1056: Another Site Update With Several New Patterns

06-11-2013 11:56 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 7 comments »

I am happy to say that yesterday we completed another site update. Even though I have done many projects that needed to be shipped off the the magazine lately, which meant that I couldn’t sell them just yet to my own customers, I am getting new projects released all the time that I am able to put up on the site and have new items for everyone to make. It all balances out, I suppose. Another thing that helps is having a partner. When I am working on a painting pattern or something t...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1015: One Last Tray (for now!)

04-20-2013 11:15 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 11 comments »

It was a restless night. The wind was howling and gusting so loud that it was difficult to get a restful sleep. It is muggy out, but opening a window meant hearing the violent swirling of the wind through the trees as they complained with loud rustling and creaking. I would say that it is raining, but besides a sharp smattering here and there against the window between the blasts of wind, it does not appear to be so. The ground is only slightly wet and there are no large puddles. When the w...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1538: The Cast of Characters

04-17-2015 11:57 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

I skipped posting yesterday because I felt there was little new that I had to show you. I know that sometimes when that happens, I find something interesting for a 'filler post', but I didn't want to take the time to think in other directions. I was on a mission. The new project that I have begun working on has consumed me. I find myself thinking about it most of the waking hours of my day, and even as I awake momentarily in the middle of the night to roll over. It has been a...
