My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #634: Many Directions

03-06-2012 11:46 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 8 comments »

One thing about doing the variety of things that I do, I never really run out of new ideas. I enjoy the thought of moving from one style to another and while sometimes it can be a bit overwhelming, for the most part it keeps me longing to work and looking forward to each day and creating something new. The kitty chalkboard is out the door and on its way to the magazine now. I don’t know why getting things packed up and out the door seems to be so much of a chore, but there are time...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #633: Writing, Writing, Writing

03-05-2012 10:53 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

I am afraid that today’s post won’t be very exciting. I worked most of the day yesterday on writing instructions and I did get the materials ready to ship the Kitty Cat Chalkboard to New Jersey for publication. I don’t know why it seemed to take so long, but there were 18 pictures that I included in the instructions and doing the editing on them took me a bit longer than I anticipated. But that is all behind me now and the pickup is scheduled and it will be on its way lat...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #632: New Project Just About Finished

03-04-2012 12:13 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 11 comments »

When I got up this morning, it was already getting light out. At first I thought I overslept, but in looking at the clock I realized that it was somewhere around the normal time I get up and it is just becoming light out earlier. Yes, spring is well on its way and soon winter will be behind us. Did we even have a winter? I hear of the fury of storms and tornadoes sweeping the US and I remember why spring is probably my least favorite season of the four. Growing up near Chicago, there w...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #631: Teaching Through Baby Steps

03-03-2012 12:31 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 7 comments »

There are days when I feel like I do not accomplish all that I want to do. Usually, if I sit down and really think about it and list the things that I did throughout the day, I find that things aren’t really as bad as I originally thought and that in actuality, I did achieve a lot. It is just that what I choose to do takes time and thought, and I need to remind myself of that sometimes and not expect everything to be done in the blink of an eye. I am currently working on four patte...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #628: The Extra Day

02-29-2012 11:55 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 10 comments »

Every four years we get an extra day. I never really thought about it before, it really is something that is kind of special. Those of you who read regularly have heard me wish from time to time for that evasive 48 hour day. There are so many things that I want to get done, that I am always looking for more time to complete everything. I suppose that my wish has come true and today is exactly that. Today we all received the gift of an additional 24 hours. When you think about it a bi...

Dust Collector Choice

02-28-2012 02:51 AM by rockinmichael | 24 comments »

I’ve recently been in the market for a new dust collector. I really care about filtration, but do I really need a shop fox or grizzly portable cyclone, or should I go for a cheaper single stage model. I am just a hobbyist with a small shop in a two car garage. Any recommendations?

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #626: Working on Pattern Packets

02-27-2012 12:40 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 8 comments »

I had quite a productive day yesterday, but everything was done at a relaxed pace which even made it better. I sanded and re-coated the chalk board, which I am going to allow to dry a bit more before trying it out, and I also got caught up on my mail. I then put together a pattern, and I worked on making a second packet for the painted pumpkin candle tray that I made last week, which will take a bit of doing. One thing about painting patterns is that they are quite a bit more involved th...

Started my blog finally!

02-27-2012 08:38 AM by Brad | 1 comment »

Well in an effort to clear out my head and keep customers up to date on their projects I’ve started a blog. Plus with all the tools that come and go in my shop it’ll be a good way to review and post on these items. Everyone loves pictures so much like a kids book there will be lots and lots of pictures hooray! I haven’t really done a blog before but since my main employment includes long hours of “hurry up and wait” I might as well be productive. Oh and in case y...

Making a living at woodworking #1: Professional woodworking

02-24-2012 09:13 PM by Ron Messersmith | 14 comments »

I am writing about what it’s like trying to make a living as a woodworker. I have to consider myself a professional woodworker since it’s all I do since retiring from the Navy and then from the Nuclear Power Utility industry about 12 years ago. I have never blogged before so it will take me some time to get over the learning curve. I really don’t know how this works so I’ll just start writing and hope I get some help along the way. Will be back soon. I’ve ...
