My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1460: Bringing Joy Throughout the Year

12-11-2014 01:39 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

There are so many wonderful reasons that I take the time to write here nearly every day. Of course, in the beginning it was to get our little company more exposure and let more people know we are here. But as time progresses, I have come to realize the many, many other benefits of blogging. Not only have I been able to communicate better with my customers and bring them information regarding a variety of techniques, but I have made some real and lasting friendships as well. That – ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1459: Little Touches

12-09-2014 01:30 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

I wasn't even going to blog today but I was up early working on some things and I was so amazed at the difference adding just a "little bit" extra to my ornaments made. I have some ornaments and gifts that I am in the process of finishing up for my own gift giving and in looking at my SLD486 Merry Christmas Letter Blocks, I liked them, but they needed that little 'extra.'They were pretty made with nicely grained maple, finished with clear shellac: But after all, this ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1457: #1456 More New Patterns

12-05-2014 01:38 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 7 comments »

Today's post will be fast and furious.   (Umm – we'll see about that!)After posting yesterday and beginning working on the pattern packet for the SLD486 Merry Christmas Word Blocks: . . . a thought occurred to me.  While I had drawn up an entire alphabet for the SLD487 Alphabet Ornament Shapes  (well – two versions actually) I had only intended to include the letters for "Merry Christmas" in the other pattern. But I got to thinking . . . &q...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1456: Some New Patterns I Created

12-04-2014 02:01 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

We are getting ready for another site update, and I have a couple of new patterns that I have been working on that I hope to finish up today.It seems that people really like word art. We often get request for  personalized projects and plaques that have names or sayings that our customers like. That is one reason that Keith decided to do some personalized plaques, and they have been really popular. I also love cutting lettering. To me, the prettier the font, the better. There is som...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1454: Welcome December!

12-01-2014 12:49 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

It is hard to believe it is December already! The autumn months are always my favorite, but it always seems that they pass by so quickly. Here in Nova Scotia we have had several days of dusting snow and lately it has been cool and grey. Winter is definitely coming.The beginning of the new month is also a significant day for me. My oldest child (Phil) has turned 31 today. It is hard to believe that it was that long ago when he was just a little guy. It seemed like in a blick of an eye he grew ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1451: Meet "Aurora"

11-26-2014 12:56 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

My goodness yesterday just flew by! It was one of those days when I was busy from the moment I awoke and before I knew it, it was getting dark out. I had several things happening at once, and after I returned from my errands, I got my new design ready to cut on the saw. But after I had things all lined up on my wood pieces, I saw that some revisions were needed on the pattern and the old cliche of "back to the drawing board" rang true. After tweaking things a bit, I was able to...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1450: More New Scroll Saw Designs!

11-25-2014 01:11 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 1 comment »

Today's post is going to be rather short (well – by my standards anyway!)  Both Keith and I are working very hard to get some more new designs to you for your holiday crafting. Keith just finished a beautiful new set of ornaments that are in his very popular filigree style. I believe he finished up the pattern last night and he should be making them available on the site sometime later today. I think they are just stunning: I also have been working on a couple of new sc...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1448: Different Strokes for Different Folks

11-20-2014 12:30 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

I had a very busy day yesterday. But it was the kind of day that was also a great deal of fun. (I have had a lot of those lately!) I spent the majority of it decorating my new SLD485 Holiday Lights Damask ornaments that I previewed to you yesterday. I had cut several sets of them because I knew I wanted to play with them and experiment with many of the wonderful finishes that I had here from DecoArt and hot fix rhinestones from Rhinestone Canada.  I had several ideas of how I wanted to d...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1447: Slow and Steady

11-19-2014 11:44 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

I am the first to admit that I am not a fast worker. Be it painting, scroll sawing, sewing or anything else, I find that it usually takes me quite a bit longer than the average person to accomplish most things.I also admit that it used to bother me, but as I get older, it doesn't seem to do so as much anymore. As we accumulate large quantities of what we are making, adding to the pile just seems to . . . well . . . add to the pile and sometimes I feel that things lose their 'spec...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1446: New Ornaments in the Works

11-18-2014 12:43 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 0 comments »

Today's post is going to be short (I promise!) I am busy at the drawing table creating a new pattern of ornaments for the scroll sawyers. My friend Leldon requested it and I always like to do what I can to accommodate him. He helps me so much with going over our patterns and proof reading for me. It is hard to proof read your own patterns. Especially for people like Keith and myself who crate so many of them. We try to keep a similar format to them and be consistent, but sometimes wh...
