My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #491: Time Out for Organization

10-14-2011 11:55 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

Today is what I am going to call a day to tie up loose ends. I get those every once in a while – usually in between projects where it seems that everything is everywhere and I just need a day to put everything away and reorganize it all and get things tidied up. As I look around my place here, there seems to be stuff scattered here and there and it can be mighty annoying and counter-productive for me to work with things like this. I really don’t like clutter, and with living ...

ScrollSaw Information and Resources #16: Going to do the Consignment Store

10-13-2011 04:09 AM by jerrells | 2 comments »

I have been asking questions and seeking information about Consignment store opportunities both in my BLOG and through other sources. As I described I ran across a Consignment store opportunity that seems like the perfect starting point. The basic details are. 1. You lease store shelf/floor, wall space by the foot. A three foot shelf will run me about $20 per month.2. I set the selling price of all items I have in the store. I also place price tags on all items per store instructions.3. Th...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #489: Using Mistakes as Tools for Learning

10-12-2011 12:34 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

I never said I was the brightest bulb in the box. I do however find it sometimes amazing how I can find new and exciting ways to make mistakes. I can be pretty innovative at that. That should count for something, shouldn’t it? Yesterday I did get to cut out all the pieces for my new calendar project. I really think it is going to be cool. This project is going to be one that will be sent to the magazine for publication and I really wanted to do a good job on it. In fact, I am ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #488: A Very Full Day

10-11-2011 12:39 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 0 comments »

There are so many things to be grateful for. When I look around and see the big picture of my life, I understand how very fortunate I am to have so many good things. I do realize this all the time and really don’t take anything for granted. My life hasn’t always been like this and I have memories in the not-so-distant past of when things were troubled and I had much to worry about. Not only for myself, but for those who I loved the most. Everyone goes through difficult times...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #487: Eating and Working (and Eating More!)

10-10-2011 11:33 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 11 comments »

Well, I have one turkey dinner down and two to go! (One isn’t until the end of November though, so it gives me time to recover) It was a great one though, and everything was simply yummy. I didn’t stuff myself (too much) although by the end of the meal I couldn’t manage to finish my piece of pumpkin cake with dark chocolate ganache filling. It was really a crime but I had to toss the rest of it out. I could eat no more. I remember when I was young and my mother used ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #486: Trial and Error

10-09-2011 12:55 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

Yesterday was a day filled with fun and also some frustrations. Just because I have been designing for a long time doesn’t mean that I don’t make mistakes and encounter obstacles. There is no guarantee that things are going to work right every time. Even when I really thought I had everything covered. I worked on my project for the magazine for a while yesterday. This was the one that I was talking about last week, that I have been thinking about and trying to come up with ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #485: New Toys Are Really FUN!

10-08-2011 12:31 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 12 comments »

As I sit here and type this morning, I am in an entirely new world. Many of you know that I have the tendency to be somewhat of a geek at times. I love technology and computers and the ever-growing list of new ‘toys’ that are available for our technological pleasure. It is much like the wonderful world of woodworking, where there is always a new tool or gadget that we simply have got to get. And then for me there is also painting and art supplies. When will it end! So what&...

ScrollSaw Information and Resources #15: Consignments Stores - Are They Worth It?

10-08-2011 02:53 AM by jerrells | 3 comments »

I have been scrolling for some time and have sold by word of mouth and at a few Arts & Craft shows. All with a fair amount of success. Now I have found an opportunity to be involved in a Consignment Store to sell my product. However, my question is, are these worth the effort. The arrangement for this consignment store is the rent/least space by the shelf. You pay $20 per month for a shelf that is three foot wide and about 18 inches deep. All of the basic fixture items are provided lik...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #484: I'll Get By With a Little Help From My Friends

10-07-2011 12:50 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 1 comment »

The past several days have truly been busy. I have so many things going on right now that it is hard to decide which thing I want to do first. Usually I wind up working on the project with the nearest deadline. Mixed into all the work projects and things that I do for my business, I have also been making some ‘secret projects’ which I like to send as little extras and give to people in my life. It may seem odd, but doing this is something that I truly enjoy and I consider it...
