My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #553: Calm

12-15-2011 01:52 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

I have to be honest with you all, lately it has been a little difficult to write here every morning. I have been working on several different ‘secret’ things and I can’t really share them here. Last year, I painted my partner’s mom a box that she could keep her needlework supplies in and I was able to show the progress here, but since then, she has gotten a laptop and I know there are days when she does read my blog. Many of my other friends and family also check in...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #548: Thanks for the Great Responses Yesterday!

12-10-2011 02:47 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

I want to start off today’s post with thanking all of those who helped out and posted your thoughts and participated in yesterday’s discussion. The responses were quite overwhelming not only here on Lumberjocks, but also on the Sheila Landry Designs page and my Facebook. It just shows what a hot topic picking the right tool is and judging from all the responses and also all the personal emails I received, I think that together we all helped a great deal of people. Discussions...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #547: How Can I Recommend Something That I Don't Believe In?

12-09-2011 02:05 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 38 comments »

I like to try to participate in several different forums as time permits. Since I work here at home and live in a rather remote area, much of my socialization and networking depends on computers and forums such as these, as well as customer feedback. Lately, with the holidays approaching, I have been asked several times which scroll saw I would recommend. Although it may seem like it would be an easy questions, it isn’t as easy as one would think. Most of you who know me and rea...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #546: I Do Believe That Enjoying Life is the Secret to Keeping Creative

12-08-2011 01:32 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

Yesterday was filled with doing more ‘Secret Santa’ things, so again it is not easy to talk about them. I spent the day organizing things and making lists and getting things ready to send out. I know that I had better hurry, because time is running out. I try not to make too many Christmas things for the holidays for those who are on my list who live away from me. That narrows it down to just about everyone. I always felt a bit of disappointment when I received a cool Chr...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #543: One Deadline Down . . .

12-05-2011 01:20 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

Well, I got most of what I wanted to accomplish done yesterday. Of course I would have liked to have more done, but that is just me. I did get the calendar pieces all finished and stained and ready to go out the door. The only thing that is/was a problem was that I didn’t get them done until after it was dark out, so the pictures that I have for myself here aren’t very nice. I finished gluing all the little metal washers to the backs of the pieces by early evening, but sinc...

Going down a 29year memory lane

12-04-2011 09:08 PM by grosa | 5 comments »

I was looking through some of the fun projects I have done in 29 years and I put together a slide show. Some of you have seen some of these pictures on my posts, some have not. WARNING This is a very LONG slide show over 800 pictures.I didn’t bother with the descriptions or organizing the pictures, there are just to many of them. I have been blessed with the privilege to do all these fun projects and I love what I do. I hope you all love woodworking as much as I do and I hope you all ge...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #542: A Full Day Ahead

12-04-2011 01:49 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

I had such a good day yesterday! It was a nice mix of work and friendship and being creative. I was all set to spend the day working on my project and I got a call from one of my friends that I used to paint with in Bear River and she was going to be in my little side of the world and asked if I wanted to meet up. Since I only see her once or twice a year, I jumped at the chance to do so and switched up on my plans. I suppose that is one of the best parts of being self-employed. You ge...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #541: The Waiting Game

12-03-2011 03:16 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 10 comments »

We all have heard the saying “good things take time” and I am discovering how true that is while finishing my latest project. Yesterday I spent the bulk of my time doing the final sanding and applying mineral oil to the many pieces for my calendar project. As you saw from yesterday’s post, there really were a lot of pieces and it was a slow process. I actually made three sets of overlay pieces for the project. Two were of 1/8” maple and one was of 1/8” Ba...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #540: Busy Hands are Happy Hands!

12-02-2011 02:01 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

Holy Moley, what a day I had yesterday! To say I was “busy” just doesn’t seem to cover it. But it was a really GOOD type of busy and I had an incredible time. Who would have thought that things could have been so much fun? I had made an announcement on Steve Good’s scroll saw forum that I put up a new free pattern. Steve had also mentioned to his readers about joining my mailing list. Well, that was all it took to keep me busy all day! I couldn’t believe...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #539: Formula for Success

12-01-2011 01:27 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

I really had a full and busy day yesterday. I had a lot of fun, too. There are days when my job takes me in many directions at one time and everything is manageable. Those are the days when I go to bed feeling like I really accomplished a lot and have everything under control. I hope there are many more of them to follow. I like to talk about these things because it is a time when all the work and experience comes into play. I want to show people that there is hope for having a busine...
