My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #65: New Musical Instrument Ornaments (With Pictures!!!!)

08-07-2010 03:16 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 10 comments »

Well, I started today off with a bang. Literally. I barely had the sleep out of my eyes and a couple of sips of coffee in my body and I began finish sanding the set of ornaments I was working on. I accidentally caught the corner of the sand paper on a holly leaf and it broke off. I went to the freezer to get my cyanoacrylate glue and I had a not so nice surprise. It seemed that yesterday I was pretty hot and pretty busy and I had put a can of Diet Coke in the freezer “just for a m...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #52: Almost There

07-25-2010 01:50 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 11 comments »

I slept in a bit on account that it is Sunday. I actually woke up at my usually time and rolled over and had ‘one more sleep’. It felt good because it seems that it has been a really long time since I have done that. I think that sometimes the mind set of slowing down helps actually makes us more productive. I don’t quite understand it or know how it works, but it seems that way anyway. It feels like a bit of autumn this morning. I know people aren’t quite ready f...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #50: Do You Hear What I Hear?

07-23-2010 01:23 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 9 comments »

I really appreciate the nice things that everyone said about the Autumn Pumpkin Candle Tray. I was very happy with how it came out. On paper, it wasn’t too impressive but when I started getting it cut, I saw that it would be nice. It may be my favorite of the trays to date, even though I like the bat one so much. I really like it though. It is funny, but I keep going back and just looking at it sitting there on the table. I guess I am proud. I have a few painted pieces that are lik...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #49: Still On Track!

07-22-2010 01:47 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

Well, today I am really slow getting out of the gate. Not really slow I guess, but woke up to several things that needed my attention. The first and most pressing issue was that I didn’t have internet. I am sure lots of you can relate to that crisis very much. We had some bad thunder and lightning storms last night (which isn’t really typical for Nova Scotia) and thought it was a safe bet to unplug everything electronic from the wall. We have everything on power bars and they...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #48: The Best Way to Learn is to Teach Others

07-21-2010 01:43 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

I was going to write about something totally different today. I had something happen yesterday that wasn’t very pleasant that related to my business and I was going to share it here and tell my story. It wasn’t a positive thing, but everything did turn out OK and I am back on track and I thought it may be one of those ‘lesson learned’ blogs that you might be interested in. Then I woke this morning and was going through my email and I received some responses from a...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #47: A New (Self) Challenge

07-20-2010 01:27 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

I really appreciated the positive feedback on the Gothic Bat Candle Tray yesterday. It was a wonderful boost and some great suggestions were made. I am extremely intrigued by the Inlace Metal Dust that was suggested and I think that I have got to get my hands on some. Getting it here in Canada may be a challenge though as a friend of mine who does beautiful turning told me about it a while back and I couldn’t find any. I guess I have to hit Google and see what I can see. That would ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #46: Scrollgirl's Gone Batty!!!

07-19-2010 01:38 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

It is great to feel as if I really accomplished something. Although I didn’t finish everything on my laundry list of things to do yesterday, I got to most everything I wanted to done and at the end of the day I made the choice to call it an evening and just chill. I felt satisfied that I did enough for the day and wanted to sit back and enjoy the moment. I played some scrabble, watched a show or two and went to bed kind of early because I wanted to be refreshed and well-rested when I...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #43: Sometimes the Lazy Way is More Work Then Anticipated (But We Learn Something)

07-16-2010 01:08 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

OK. This is getting scary. Do we only get so many good days in a given time period? Or are we really the masters of our own destiny? I am probably over-reacting, but I just really like when things work out like you want them to. I am kind of hoping that it is because thought and planning went into something that it turns out well. That gives us some sense of control. I would hate to think that it is only by chance. So where were we? Ah, yes. The autumn leaf candle tray. As I was sa...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #42: Successful Changes

07-15-2010 11:51 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

I woke up an hour early this morning from a dream. I am sorry to say that it wasn’t a lovely dream about woodworking or designing or anything so creative. It was one of those startling dreams that shook you a bit so that you couldn’t get back to sleep. I laid there for a while and I finally knew it was futile to try to get back to sleep and I gave up. Besides, just think of what I can do with this extra hour today. I’ll look at it as a gift and we will go from there. :) ...
