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...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #538: Still Cutting

11-30-2011 01:10 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

As usual, I earned the title of “Queen of Underestimation.” At least I kind of did plan for it this time, so I don’t feel too bad about it. The second leg in the calendar project is just about done being cut. It is funny, but in my head I only allowed a day to get all the pieces done. Even I should know better. I am really OK though because as long as I get it out this week, I should be good. I don’t feel a great deal of pressure in that department. The sec...

I got four commissioned cutting boards today. I was planning on spending time in the shop to work on the crib, but I like money too. So I will be working on that. No, update this week.

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #535: Preparing for Germ Warfare

11-27-2011 02:04 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

I’m getting ready to face battle here. My partner Keith has come down with what is turning into a nasty cold. The last thing I want or need is to get sick right now so I am doing everything I can to avoid sharing in the experience. To me there are just some things you don’t want to share. It started last week when we were doing the major cleaning. He was sneezing and saying his throat was sore and his nose was bothering him. We thought that it definitely could have been al...

Lost in woodworking #4: Experience has paid off

11-26-2011 05:07 PM by Doug Scott | 6 comments »

As we all know all about this economy and the down turns it has caused, I have been forced to close down my furniture business, due to the lack of customers. How this economy can change, last year I was working 12-14 hours a day, and since June it has dropped off drastically. Well getting to the point , About three weeks ago I sent out three resume’s to woodworking company’sI knew of, and less than a week I got a response from two, And have had two interviews .Now I have to d...
