My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #653: Cutting Time

03-27-2012 10:17 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 1 comment »

Today I will be able to get to the saw for a bit. I say that like it is an ‘event’ because frankly, it kind of is. I realize that I say that a lot, but as a designer there are so many steps to making a pattern, that the time spent actually cutting at the saw is many times the shortest part of the process. I really don’t mind that though because it does keep everything fresh and helps keep that sense of desire burning inside. While you may think that I will be cutting the...

Hi everyone, I thought you would enjoy seeing the mug shot from Bubba Inga, after he got busted. You can read the entire story here (I crack myself up).

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #652: The Sands of Time

03-26-2012 09:55 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

Most woodworkers that I talk to don’t like sanding. Of the many steps in the process of doing a woodworking project, I think I am pretty safe in saying that it is the least liked part. In fact, I am amazed at the number of people who spend hours on a project that simply skip over the sanding step completely. I don’t always understand why they would do that. While it may not be the most pleasant part of making a project, it is among the most important in most things that we cre...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #651: Attitude is Everything

03-25-2012 11:24 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

So many times when we have something to do, the attitude in which we approach it can really affect the whole process. In looking ahead to the job of creating 300 pattern kits that I have in front of me, to some it may seem like a massive chore. I understand and respect that, because I realize that all people don’t have the passion in their hearts that I do regarding woodworking and my job. While production work may seem mundane to some, to me it has its virtues. I look at the tas...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #650: We Got So Much Accomplished Yesterday

03-24-2012 10:31 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 7 comments »

I can’t even say that I mind that the day was so full yesterday. When all was said and done, there were several loose ends tied up and all in all, we accomplished a great deal. It just goes to show what some good planning and having a good attitude can accomplish. In looking ahead to the day, one could have easily felt that the number of tasks and stops we needed to make were somewhat overwhelming. There were many things that I had to do, both in Digby which is about 45 minutes dr...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #649: And . . . . We're Off!

03-23-2012 10:59 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

I am preparing for another day on the treadmill today. It is Friday already and it seems that the week was spent either running or in negotiation. It’s these ‘unseen’ things that really seem to bog us down at times. But they are all for a reason and all functional, and part of the work and our lives. Yesterday was another busy one. The lecturing went well. I talked to two classes for an hour each and while I was quite nervous in the beginning, once I got rolling thin...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #648: A Tough One

03-22-2012 10:43 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 7 comments »

Things didn’t quite go as I would have liked them to yesterday. There were several things on different fronts that brought news that was not what I would call ‘good.’ Some of it could have been helped, and some of it could not. That is just part of life I suppose and I need to deal with things as they come. It was a tough day for the ‘pink cloud’ and it rather took a beating. I only mention this because I try to be honest when I write and not only focus on...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #647: Old Habits are Difficult to Break

03-21-2012 11:04 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

I didn’t think I would be writing today, but I suppose the title of this post says a lot. It has become part of my day for the past nearly two years and it is difficult for me to be here at home and not to write. I suppose I was getting concerned because of the content of the posts the last couple of weeks. While the title of the series was clearly focused on creating scroll saw patterns, I was feeling that lately life has gotten in the way and even though I have been extremely bus...
