My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1180: "Elf" Mode

12-02-2013 01:11 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 7 comments »

It’s the month of December already and that only means one thing – Elf Mode. While it appears I am in Elf Mode every day, during the holidays it goes to a new level. Not only do I enjoy making most of the gifts that I give, but I also like to participate in many exchanges that are held from several of the forums that I frequent. Yes – I LOVE to receive small pieces of others’ work! Recently, in my never ending quest to be organized I purchased a nice brush box ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1174: More New Projects for our Site Update

11-24-2013 11:01 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

I am just going to post a quick update today, as I still have quite a bit that I want to accomplish. I am working on writing the pattern packets for the new projects that we are in the process of adding to our site. I finished two of the three packets yesterday and I want to have the third one posted by the end of the day. Keith has also been working on some new projects that will be included in the update. Below is a picture of an ornament from his new set that he designed. He calls t...

Gun Showcase/Coffee Table #1: Gun showcase/Coffee Table

11-23-2013 05:14 PM by vpbarnwood | 1 comment »

Here is an idea for gun owners that don’t have a gun case or space for a wall gun case. That being said it is not just for guns, you can display just anything that will fit in the case, such as coins, knick knacks, precious mementos. The dimensions are 5’ by 2’ by 18” when it will be finished. There will also be a drawer under the showcase in the center of the table. The wood used is reclaimed barn wood from my barn.

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1170: Finished Ornament Pictures! :)

11-20-2013 12:23 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 11 comments »

As I am writing this morning, the sky is a very light blue and it is filled with puffy clouds. The bottoms of the clouds are an incredible peachy/orange hue that blends into the peachy/grey tops. If I painted a picture like this, some would think it looked ‘fake’, as the colors are so unusual. But it is there and it is a beautiful sight to wake up to. I can feel already that it will be a good day. I made pretty good progress yesterday on my project. The second version of th...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1169: Making Your Own Rules

11-19-2013 11:35 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 8 comments »

To me, one of the best things I find with designing is that the only rules that I have to follow are my own. I think that is one of the main reasons that I became a designer in the first place. I never really followed along with rules. It isn’t that I am not able to do so. Usually I am pretty good at reading instructions and following them to the letter. . My friend Cari and I were “experts” at doing things like putting together projects, toys and furniture (you know &#...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1167: Wonderful Progress (And a Bonus Mini-Lecture!) ;)

11-17-2013 12:22 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 11 comments »

I had another busy day yesterday, although it was a good one. Not only did I spend the afternoon cutting out my new ornaments on my new Excalibur (which was simply just FUN!) but I also spent the morning getting to work on my next pattern for another ornament set. The set that I am working on (SLD445 Traditional Damask Ornaments) is not for the faint of heart. I wanted something that would push the envelope a little bit and I think these designs qualify. I wanted to make them a bit sm...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1163: Spring is in the Air!!

11-12-2013 10:58 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

In the crazy world of designing, as most of us are waiting for that first snow, my thoughts have been to green leaves, warm weather and singing birds. These past few days I have been working on my project for the March issue of Creative Woodworks and Crafts magazine, in which we are welcoming in the spring season. It is certainly a time warp. I had been thinking of my project that I would submit long before we left for our trip to Chicago. I wanted something bright and cheerful and I h...

giving the local Kids something they can be there own #1: Christmas Tree Ornaments

10-30-2013 04:20 PM by Jim Earl | 4 comments »

For the last five years I have given Blank Christmas tree Ornaments to the local Grade school across from me. My GrandChildrenn has been going over there and I still have three going over there and one at another grade school. I do this for them to paint and keep for there own, I know not all children celebrate Christmas but that does stop the schools and everywhere else from decorating so I figure that while I made them to sell, I would give them to my grandchildrens classes, well that grew ...

Life as an Amateur Woodworker #1: UK to Colombia, the ups and the downs.

10-14-2013 11:02 AM by PhilBello | 4 comments »

I retired from the UK Police in 2006 after 30 years, and I think I only survived that period of time, because of my love of woodwork, I class myself as a late starter, I used to tinker with bits and pieces, but it wasn’t until I was 21 and my first Father-in-law who was a Chippy, gave me lessons and a few tools, that I decided that woodwork was definitely the hobby for me. In July 2006 I left the Police, and immediately moved to Spain, where I had had property for a number of years, ...
