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 ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1546: Haunted Carousel Central Pillar

05-04-2015 12:18 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

We had a beautiful weekend here in Nova Scotia. Finally we are seeing some warmer temperatures and are feeling the warmth of the sun. the grass is beginning to turn green again and the buds on the trees are finally, slowly emerging. Winter is definitely over. On Saturday Keith and I drove to Halifax. We had some errands to do and supplies to pick up, and I had someone look at my car to bid for some work that I need to have done on it. It is eleven years old now and while I have kept it i...

The Tinker's Apprentice #2: My Dilemma

04-07-2015 08:50 PM by droogs | 1 comment »

Having had my “road to Damascus” moment, the realisation dawned on me that although I had just had a world beating business idea; I in fact had absolutely no way in which to achieve its fruition. After all, here was I with no tools at all, other than a very worn Phillips screwdriver, a decrepit claw hammer, a knock-off 12mm Marples “blue” bevelled chisel (with sides that could only be described as having been ground using the kerb) and a rather cheap and nasty ¼” drive socket set missing the ...

The Tinker's Apprentice #1: A Beginning

04-03-2015 06:37 PM by droogs | 2 comments »

Where to start? At the beginning I suppose. Well, not the very beginning as that would entail going all the way back to a rather dreary wet Tuesday afternoon (and it was, I’ve checked) in an equally dreary and dank tenement building in Glasgow in 1968. For you dear reader I think perhaps that that may be a little too far and not very interesting and it would also be definitely far off the mark, as far as the subject of this tome to come is concerned, as could be. So, I guess I will begin s...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1529: Cute as a Bug

04-03-2015 01:05 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 13 comments »

I often write about a place in my mind where I see very vivid visions of projects that I want to design. While it may sound strange to you all, it honestly is the truth and truly exists. This is the reason that I wake up so excited most mornings!  I can't wait to start each day and one by one bring each of these projects to 'life'. While I know it isn't always possible, I WISH you all could see the hundreds (yes – HUNDREDS) of spectacular things that I have pla...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1528: Progress

04-02-2015 12:02 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

It is another beautiful and sunny morning here on the bank of the Meteghan river. The air is calm and there isn't a cloud in the sky. Little by little the huge piles of snow is receding and we are able to see brownish patches of what promises to be green grass.  Spring is definitely on its way. It has been a long winter for us here in Nova Scotia. As with many other parts of the world, we seemed to have our fill of ice and snow. The past several years we have had mild winters, a...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1527: So Much Inspiration

04-01-2015 12:50 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

I often feel as if I over use the word  "inspiration." It seems like every other day, I am inspired by something. I guess it is because after living a life of creating, we train ourselves to look at things differently than most people do. I can look at the sky and wonder which DecoArt Americana paint colors I would use if I were to paint it. I look at the architecture of an old building or an iron fence and think of ways I could replicate that pattern in a scroll saw project, a...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1515: FLOWERS!!!!

03-12-2015 11:34 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 7 comments »

Today I am revealing the fourth and final new trinket box pattern that I created over the weekend. I was really pleased with all the kind reponses that I have received regarding them. It feels good to make something that people seem to like so much. I spent the day yesterday writing up the pattern packets for these projects. I tried to include some step-by-step photos so that even newer scrollers would be able to make the projects successfully. Actually they aren't that difficult at ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1513: CHICKS!!!!!!

03-10-2015 11:48 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

Yesterday I featured a sweet bunny basket and accessory pattern. I mentioned that it was just one of four new designs that I completed over the weekend. While I showed you some "snapshots" of the finished project, I spent the day taking what I call 'presentation photos' of all four projects. Having nice photos is really helpful when selling patterns. I find that people enjoy not only seeing nice, clear photos of what the pattern includes, but also likes suggestions of h...
