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

1492 days ago 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!!!

1493 days ago 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)

1496 days ago 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

1497 days ago 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. :) ...

Sleepydogs Blog #4: World Scroll Saw Expo Parts 1 and 2

1497 days ago by joey | 2 comments »

I got to go to the World Scroll Saw Expo last weekend in Wilmington Ohio, Which is my own back yard, since I only live thirteen miles from Wilmington. The Expo was cool to say the lease and really got me excited to play with my scroll saw agian. I only have a cheap saw but it does what I ask it to do, but if I ever really want to get into some of the kind of work that these folks do I might have to re-think that! There is three parts to my blog post the first post is just pictures from the sh...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #41: The Leaf Candle Tray . . . Almost There

1498 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

I made a great amount of progress in yesterday’s design. Although I didn’t get to start cutting, it was with good reason and I am well on my way to get there today. Sometimes in laying the foundation out for a project, things just don’t come out exactly how we envisioned them. I see things in my head long before anyone ever sees them either on paper or in wood. I know what I want to accomplish, and because of how long I have been doing this it usually comes in the same n...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #38: Random Thoughts and Stand-Up Nativity Set

1501 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

It is raining again and finally we are experiencing some cooler temperatures. It is a wonderful relief from the hot and humid weather we have had. It is still a bit humid, but the weather service shows this being the pattern for the week so there is some hope that it will begin to feel more comfortable shortly. I understand that others have it far worse than here. Being from Chicago and spending so many summers there with a 103 heat index, I should be used to the heat and humidity. But I ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #36: Another Day At The Office

1503 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 7 comments »

I don’t know where to begin this morning. After being buried in paperwork and writing yesterday, I may be close to being tapped out (for the moment anyway). I think today’s entry will be short and sweet so I can get back to finishing writing my patterns and get everything up on the site today. (I know – promises, promises!) I spent most of the day writing pattern instructions. Although I don’t really mind it that much, it does get to me after a while. It try t...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #35: Some Ornament Pictures

1504 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 14 comments »

Yesterday turned out to be quite a productive day. I cleared up all my correspondence and got all my cutting done and the pictures to the wholesaler and I even had a little time to paint in the evening. I even started to do some writing of the final packets I have to assemble, but I thought I would be fresher for something like that in the morning and opted with the painting. The ornaments were quite challenging but I was able to cut them without problems. They were stack-cut with one la...
