My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1586: Ten New patterns

07-07-2015 12:22 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

Time always seems to move much too quickly, and lately more so than ever. I think because I have been keeping so busy the days just seem to bleed quickly into one another and before we know it, another week has passed. It is hard to believe that we are halfway through the year. As those of you who read often know, I spent the last week or so working on some new scroll saw patterns for the site. At the time I was working on them it didn't seem like it was a lot, but seeing everything ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1585: Being Patient

07-06-2015 11:54 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

If I am anything, I am patient. I wasn't always that way, but as I get older and learn to appreciate things a bit more, I know that doing things right and getting things done properly takes time. Most times there is no way around that. We live in a society where everyone wants everything fast. Whether it be their food, something they ordered online, or even something that is hand crafted, people don't seem to have the patience and respect that is required to offer something ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1584: Scrolling Binge

07-03-2015 11:32 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 11 comments »

One good thing about doing lots of types of creative crafts is that every time I get to do something else, it is new and fresh to me and I am excited about it. I love painting and I love the recent needle artwork that I have been attempting, but I also love creating cool wood things on the scroll saw. There is something that is so calming and peaceful about following a line with a tiny blade to create 'graceful wood'. It is sometimes difficult to keep up with everything that is g...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1571: Catching Up

06-12-2015 11:59 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

I suppose that I will never be accused of 'rushing through' things.Even when I seem to get something done quickly, many times I wind up going back and making changes in order to improve on it. I think this can be a good thing, but sometimes I wonder if it is counter productive or not.It is something that I can't really help. Often times, I will make something that is really good, and then either while I am writing the  pattern for it or making additional pieces, I realize tha...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1567: Gears are Turning

06-05-2015 12:20 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

I took the day off of blogging yesterday because I slept in a bit. By the time I awoke it was after 8:30 am (which is LATE for me!) and by the time I got through the morning mail, it was already rather late to begin writing. I figured since I was in 'recovery mode' from the previous weeks work, there wouldn't be much to miss anyway. The world would get along without me for a morning. ;) We spent a good part of the day updating the site. While Keith does most of the computer w...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1566: Lots of FUN Ways to be Creative!

06-03-2015 12:32 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

It doesn't take much to regroup and rejuvenate! I got everything out to the post office (in the pouring rain, I may add! It made things more exciting!) and back home by 1pm. Our little place here actually looked a bit EMPTY without all the paraphernalia from the carousels here. It seems that there have been parts and things here for WEEKS! My own carousel is safely put away until later on in the year. I think I have seen enough of it for now anyway to last a little bit. Since it was ...

For my entry in the Summers Woodworking Third Annual Creative 2 X 4 Contest I chose to make a plant stand which has the form of a plant! Here’s the link to the “youtube video”: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BGo0_-mM1ZQ It’s the first video I’ve ever posted, in fact, the first to ever leave my recording device. Thanks for looking in and have a wonderful day all you Lumber Jocks.

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1547: "Almost" Finished

05-05-2015 12:16 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

I did a lot of finishing touches on my haunted carousel yesterday. It was time to do finish up the final touches that I wanted to include before the final assembly and what I call the 'presentation' photographs. These were odds and ends and somewhat 'afterthoughts' that came to mind after finishing certain sections. I had intended to show all the final photos today, but by the time I finished getting everything ready, it was after 10pm last night and I was just too tired ...
