ScrollSaw Information and Resources #14: First Craft Show - It Was Fun

10-03-2011 02:51 PM by jerrells | 5 comments »

As any or you know who have looked at my postings for the past month or so I attended my first craft show last Saturday. This was a local event at a mission location of my Church. Seemed to be a safe place to start and it helped a cause the I well support. Overall I think I did fairly well. On of the first rules of craft shows is to recover the amount of your booth space. I did that in the first hour. Secondly is to sell some product and I well did that. Thirdly is to gauge the quality of ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #480: Monday Madness

10-03-2011 11:47 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

I am typing fast, as I am running out early this morning. There is lots to do on this busy Monday and I want to get an early start. One of the things that is on the list is to contact the place where I purchased the magnets sheets from and see what different types of materials they have to offer. Even though I like these thin sheets, I would almost like something that is just a little thicker with slightly more holding power. As I indicated on yesterdays’ blog, these are pretty m...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #479: Researching 'Attractive' Possibilities

10-02-2011 01:06 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 7 comments »

A couple of weeks ago while picking around, I found something that intrigued me. I forget what I was looking for, but I stumbled across some magnetic sheeting on Ebay. Now I am not one to generally shop at Ebay. Once in a while I will see a copy of a ‘vintage’ painting book or something like that but other than that I don’t really want to take the time to scout it out and bid and all of that. Besides – by the time all the charges are added for shipping to Canada,...

Online Scroll Saw Class - Incredibly Fun Adventures in Scroll Sawing #10: Lesson 10 - Cutting Negative Designs

10-01-2011 04:56 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 8 comments »

In scroll sawing, there are several different types of ways to make a nice design. Some people make beautiful portraits by playing with lights and shadows. Here is an example of portrait designs: The above portrait was designed by my partner Keith. I have not yet done much portrait cutting, but there are many scrollers here such as Scroll3r, KnotCurser and William who do really nice work on them. Another type of design is what is referred to as a ‘positive’ design. I...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #478: Finding My Comfort Zone

10-01-2011 12:38 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

I really feel good about yesterday. It was one of those days where everything just marched along as it should and in the end, I felt like I really accomplished a lot. I felt good and I stayed really focused on what I wanted to accomplish and by the time the day was complete, I had done what I had set out to do and more. There were few distractions and I really had fun too. One of the most important things that I did was to get my next lesson up. It had been a couple of weeks since I post...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #476: Surprises

09-29-2011 12:41 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

I am not really big on surprises. Not that I am a party pooper or anything like that. I just like things in order and organized and surprises usually blow even the best laid plans out of the water. Little things I don’t mind. But for the most part I like to see what is coming and be able to plan for it. Maybe it is because I am so careful at how I allot my time. There is always so much to do and it is sometimes quite a challenge to accomplish everything. Throwing even a small c...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #475: Backup Plans are Good

09-28-2011 11:47 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 9 comments »

I thought I did pretty well yesterday. The Lumberjocks site here was down for most of the day and my blood pressure didn’t even rise (much) at all! It was one of those days where I came here in the morning to write and I couldn’t get on the site. I remember when it happened several months ago and I felt like I was missing a limb. I was pacing around like a caged animal and checking every three seconds to see if it was back. Not too comfortable. But yesterday, I had every...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #474: The Creative Wheels Are Once Again Turning

09-27-2011 09:57 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 8 comments »

Now that is more like it! What a good day it turned out to be yesterday. It had its rough spots, but I kept forging ahead and all in all it turned out to be pretty good and productive. While driving to do my errands, I saw the Blue Heron was visiting the little pond down the road again. I don’t know if I mentioned it before, but I saw it there a couple of weeks ago. It is truly beautiful and they are one of my favorite birds. I even did a painting of one a couple of years ago. ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #473: Starting Off Another Week

09-26-2011 02:07 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 0 comments »

Today is going to be a short post. I am just getting started on my next projects and I don’t really have much to say about them right now. I spent most of yesterday painting my little Halloween bunnies. I am getting close to finishing them and I may be able to do so by tonight. They are more detailed than I initially anticipated (like most things) and are taking a bit longer than I thought they would. But that is fine. They are fun and relaxing and coming out nice I think. I h...
