My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1401: Autumn is Coming . . .

09-12-2014 12:17 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

I need to start off today by thanking all of you for the wonderful comments and responses on my witch boot project that I posted yesterday. I was really overwhelmed by the many, many kind comments and inquiries as to when the patterns and kits will be available. I plan on spending the weekend working on writing up the patterns and figuring out the cost of the kits so that I can charge a fair price that will make everyone happy. Of course, the biggest cost will be the shipping. My boots wer...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1188: Another Update to Our Site!

12-10-2013 12:30 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

Even though Keith and I usually don’t feel like we are adding a lot of new patterns, it seems that our product line is growing by leaps and bounds. Our “loose” goal is to put out a newsletter about twice a month introducing our new designs and letting people know what we are up to and while I thought that would be something that would be difficult to maintain, I find that the newsletter are never short of new items or announcements. I guess we are both pretty busy. I rea...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #999: Strawberry Fields Forever

04-02-2013 11:28 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 9 comments »

As I said yesterday, it was our day to go to Digby to visit our dear friends Ellen and Bernie and their daughter Cindy and have a nice dinner. Cindy needed to work on Sunday, so our plans were postponed for a day and pushed into Monday. One of the great things about working for myself is that my schedule is flexible like that. Most of the time I am able to shift things around when something like that comes up and we don’t miss out on anything. The key there though is that we need ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #998: Progress Report

04-01-2013 11:23 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 7 comments »

What an extremely productive weekend I had! It isn’t always that I can claim that so I am pretty darn proud of all that I accomplished over the last couple of days. It feels good to work hard and actually see some physical results of that work right in front of you. That isn’t always the case. There are many times when I seem to work hard and even though every minute of the day is spent ‘doing something’ there is little to show for it. But this week, it will be a bo...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #987: Working on Version Four of the Bunnies

03-19-2013 11:07 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

I spent the day yesterday working on the final version of bunnies. This version is once again a silhouette, but it is going to be painted using a couple of nice techniques. I spent the afternoon working on the base coating and I used some crackle medium to give them a crackled finish. In the past, I have used the crackle medium with a dark under coat so that the crackles really stand out. This time however, I decided to use the bright pastel colors underneath for a more subtle effect. I a...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #986: "MUD" Bunnies

03-18-2013 11:53 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 9 comments »

The weekend was wonderfully productive. While I certainly could add “Grossly underestimates the time it takes to do things” to my resume, I still accomplished a great deal. Last week I was working on some little bunny ornaments. I am excited about them because I had four distinctly different versions of them hopping around in my head. I didn’t know which ones to actually make, so I made the decision to make them ALL. After all, who’s to say that there is a limit ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #984: A Bunny of a Different Color

03-16-2013 10:55 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

As promised, I gave my little bunnies a new look with a dash of some pretty pastel colors. I had mentioned that when I cut these little guys out the other day that I stacked them, so I got double the mileage out of my cutting time. The wood used here is 3/16” maple. That makes it an ideal project to stack-cut. I attached the two layers of wood using hot melt glue in the waste areas of the corners and the added thickness gave me a lot more control when cutting these precise swirls....

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #983: All Dressed Up (Just a Bit!)

03-15-2013 11:41 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 9 comments »

I am rather in a hurry this morning because I have a great amount of things that I want to accomplish today. Among them is to get the pattern packet ready and put up on the site for the bunny ornaments that I showed yesterday. I was very pleased (and a little surprised) with the great amount of responses I received regarding these little guys, and I am thrilled because I really love them too. So without further delay, below are the pictures of them “dressed up” (just a bit!) ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #982: Naked Bunnies

03-14-2013 12:21 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 12 comments »

Alright everyone – get your minds out of the gutter. It gets to be rather hard thinking up over 900 unique blog titles that would peak your interest. If you are reading this far than I have done my job. And all of my bunnies are definitely ‘naked’. So we’re good. Yesterday was a day that I suppose I could call a ‘banner day.’ It was one of those days when lots of things happened, I was terribly busy, but I accomplished a great deal. Although it was d...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #926: Snowflake Tray - Version 2

01-07-2013 12:18 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 11 comments »

I had a good day yesterday finishing up my new snowflake candle tray and getting some instructions written. I know the tray looked finished yesterday, but I wanted to see how it would look with a little tint and – yes – some sparkles added to it. I was certainly not disappointed. I had purposely used ash to cut the tray because of its light color. While maple can be light in color like the ash, I find that sometimes the grain is very nondescript and when I use stain or color...
