My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1152: The Storm Before the Calm

10-13-2013 10:43 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 10 comments »

I wasn’t going to write today, as I am in the midst of the chaos of my little space here in “pre-trip” mode. As most of you know, we have a small place, and normally we keep it pretty organized. I like a clean environment to work, function and live and while I am nowhere near a “neat freak”, you can usually walk in on any given day and there is some resemblance of law and order. As I look around today, that is not so much the case. Yesterday we had a wonde...

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 #1502: Working on Some New Designs

02-20-2015 01:46 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

Today's post will be a bit short, I am afraid. Not because I have been idle, but much the opposite. I find that when I design lately, I work on a certain theme and wind up doing several different projects in that style. I am not sure if that is good or bad. On one hand it makes me feel kind of 'wishy-washy' because I can't seem to settle on one version. On the other hand, it is nice to be able to design a project for scrollers, and then be able to offer a painter's ve...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1120: Variations on the New Halloween Ornaments

09-02-2013 11:28 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

Those of you who read daily know that I like to make different versions of projects. I talk many people who prefer different techniques and I try to accommodate as many as I can. Besides – I really like the variety and playing around with seeing the different ways to finish projects. Last week I introduced some new ornaments for Halloween. One set was of Halloween keys, with the key tops being made of cute characters. But some people didn’t care for the key theme, so I made...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #598: Moving Right Along

01-30-2012 12:18 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 7 comments »

Yesterday turned out to be a really good day. It was one of those days that was somewhat quiet and I stayed focused and made good progress on my project. I tidied up the house a bit and then I spent some time refining some of the drawings. When I draw on the computer, I do so at 600% or more and sometimes what I am drawing comes out a bit more detailed than I want. I usually know what limitations that I have when scrolling even if things are magnified quite a bit. I forget about it some...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #622: Little Distractions

02-23-2012 11:39 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

I never know what is going to trigger an idea. More so than not, when I am looking for something, I can’t find anything suitable but when I least expect it, something jumps out at me. Every project idea that I see isn’t always what I would call ‘original.’ But I don’t think that it always has to be. Lots of times I will see stuff that is already available or on the market that is a cute idea, but I think of how I can modify it or improve on it so that peopl...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #813: Project #2 Done!

09-10-2012 11:05 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

This one is going to have to be quick. I had some things I needed to get done this morning and I am running a bit behind. Plus, with the handicap of Pancakes on my lap, it makes it hard to type fast. I wanted to show the pictures of the second project of this group today. I really think it came out cool and I was pretty happy with the results. This one was the word “Boo!” spelled out in some Gothic type lettering along with two creepy pumpkins. I cut these letters from ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #938: Pushing the Pile

01-20-2013 12:13 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 11 comments »

Yesterday I had some unexpected things thrown my way. For some reason, my body decided to show its age in a somewhat nasty way. While getting up, it seems that something went awry with one side of my lower back, causing me a great deal of discomfort. There was no warning with this and I was just standing up when it happened. I didn’t lift anything heavy and I was fresh out of the shower, so my muscles were warm. I am completely confuzzled as to how this occurred, and I wouldn’t...

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 #1094: Damask Pattern Finished

08-02-2013 10:59 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 9 comments »

I was pretty happy yesterday. I actually set some goals and stuck tot them and I got everything accomplished that I set out to do. By the time I was finished it was about 10pm. That left just enough time for me to unwind a bit and visit with my friends online before heading off to bed. I know that every day can’t be like that, but once in a while it is nice to know that it can work. The one thing that is the top of my list that I did accomplish was creating the pattern for the trio ...
