My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #945: The "Dud"

01-28-2013 11:50 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 11 comments »

I suppose I could blame it on the previous week. My back was still sore. I was feeling poopie about some of the things with my job in general. The cats got me up early and I was kind of tired. Whatever the reason, I would think it is pretty safe to describe Saturday as a “less-than-inspiring” day. We all have them I suppose. But most people don’t put their creative lives out here on the internet every day for all to see. After almost three years of doing so, and near...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #944: Time to Shine!

01-26-2013 01:28 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 11 comments »

First of all I want to start by thanking everyone for the kind words of support we received yesterday. After a trying day on Thursday, it felt good to hear from so many of you and know that we have so many followers and friends that do care and appreciate all that we do. I am not going to allow a couple of people to change the way I do things. We will just move forward from here and what will be, will be. Now lets change gears and talk about some fun and positive things . . . On Thursd...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #942: More Masks

01-24-2013 12:49 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 7 comments »

I need to make this entry short and sweet because I am already behind for the day. I was having an issue with my USB hub this morning that meant that not only did my tablet mouse not work, but I was also unable to transfer images to the computer from my camera. I spent the first two hours of my day first crawling around playing with wires. I couldn’t understand it because even though my tablet is four years old, usually things like that just don’t ‘quit’ without i...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #941: Moving Right Along . . .

01-23-2013 12:36 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 8 comments »

I am happy to say that yesterday turned out to be a very productive day. While Kieth and I both needed scroll saw time, I had plenty to do while he was cutting to keep me busy. I spent the morning working on the final touches for the article that I wrote on different methods to apply the pattern to the wood for scroll sawing (which will be featured in the May issue of Creative Woodworks and Crafts magazine) and picked my wood piece for the set of masks that I was scrolling out. I chose a ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #936: Slowly but Surely

01-18-2013 11:36 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 9 comments »

We have all heard the saying “Good things take time.” As I work on these new ornaments, I am finding that statement to be true. While in my mind I start out thinking that they could all be done in a day, in reality, they cannot. I still have too many ideas jumbled up in my head and I have to do all I can not to be overwhelmed by them. There are only so many directions that I can think of at once without being completely stopped from overload. I found that for me the best th...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #935: Never Lose Site of What You Dream

01-17-2013 11:24 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

I had fun yesterday, although it was a day of trial and error. As I see the ideas that I had been working on come to be, I experienced feelings of both excitement and some apprehension. I think we all go through times of when we envision something that we are making, only to have it come out not exactly as we pictured it in our heads This isn’t always a bad thing, as sometimes it comes out even better than we imagined. But sometimes it just comes up a little bit different than expe...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #918: Phase 1 of the New Tray Complete

12-30-2012 12:17 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

I had a wonderfully productive day of finishing up phase 1 of my new tray yesterday. As the day before, I thoroughly enjoyed my time at the saw and seeing the tray come to life was a fun experience. I was also pleased with the good response that I received from everyone regarding the design. There were lots of inquiries as to when the pattern would be available, which is a good indicator that it will be popular. While I will not be able to sell the pattern until after the May issue of C...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #917: A New Dimension in Designing

12-29-2012 01:55 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 10 comments »

I can’t even begin to tell you all what a good day yesterday was! It felt so good to get back at the saw and actually see some of my new ideas become real. I was beginning to worry, because after being away from things for a couple of weeks, I just didn’t feel like things were going to work out well. It is funny how we do that to ourselves. It seems we have these demons inside of us that whisper doubts in the back of our minds and cause us to doubt ourselves. Many times we li...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #894: Simple Variations

12-03-2012 12:54 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 7 comments »

After quite a busy day yesterday, I am happy to say that I almost accomplished everything that I set out to do. For me, that is as good as anything. While I didn’t get my little tree changed over to Christmas yet, I did finish painting the new ornaments and charms for the pattern packet. I had to wait to take the final pictures for the packets, and I will be doing that today. I found that the DecoArt Craft Twinkle paint (the sparkle paint) that I used on these takes a bit of time ...
