My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1677: Different Strokes

01-08-2016 01:46 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 1 comment »

Part of the learning process is trial and error. I think that the best tool for teaching is just to get in there and TRY!  I find though that my problem is that when I get some really slick new supplies, I hate to 'mess them up' by trying and possibly failing when using them.  I have done this for years, and I still have many painting surfaces that are beautiful but remain unpainted for this very reason – I don't want to mess them up.  But lately, I have wante...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1676: Practice Makes Perfect

01-08-2016 01:43 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 0 comments »

I must admit that I almost didn't post today. I think I am getting 'lazy'. The first week of the new year was quite the whirlwind for me. If things continue this way, I will probably age more than a year by next December. It has been crazy. I am not complaining at all when I say that. In fact, I am thrilled beyond words at how things are turning out. It seems that many of the pieces that were set in place over the years regarding our little business are coming together t...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1674: Getting Back in a Routine

01-06-2016 11:45 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

It isn't as if I really took time 'off', but more that I was focused on some different things. I suppose though without the usual self-imposed deadlines I did slack off a bit. It just didn't feel that way. One would think that taking time off would mean sipping coffee and daydreaming about how I plan to while away the hours of the day . . . Oh!  The romantic visions we have!  But in reality, we all know how quickly those vacation days pass and how when we look b...

Behind the scenes of my shop and YouTube channel #1: An Interesting Time...

01-05-2016 04:23 PM by CharlieK | 8 comments »

I started my website and posted my first YouTube video about 7 years ago. Over that time I did what I could to maintain them and keep them fresh, but there are only so many hours in the day. Consequently,I maintained the site fairly well, but I didn’t do much on YouTube. Honestly, I didn’t get in the shop as much I wanted to either. I recently retired from my job of 31 years. Now I finally have more time, there is STILL never enough time, but I do have more time for some of...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1673: Starting the Year With a Bang!

01-05-2016 01:07 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

The new year has just began and it has already started with a "BANG"! If these first few days are any indication of what is to come, we are on a wild and wolly ride!I am certainly not complaining though. Even though my old body is weary at this moment, it has been fun and I am very excited about all that the future is going to bring. Keith and I are both really thrilled. I missed blogging these past few weeks, but I am rather happy for the time off. While our holiday here was q...

Mixed blessings #1: New Years resolution---I am going to retire.

12-31-2015 11:43 PM by Bluepine38 | 4 comments »

I retired from Fasteners, Inc. 7 years ago every year since then I have gotten a phone call, or a requestwhen I went in to pick up some parts or tools asking me to come back to work for a week or two becausethey had scheduled too many vacations at once, someone was sick, or last year because an employeehad a bad heart valve and had to have open heart surgery. It was easy to call me back in, they did nothave to train me, just add me to the payroll again and sign me up on the company computer....

Red Barn Woodworking new-ish YouTube Channel #1: Introduction to My Channel

12-31-2015 07:30 PM by ThomasLightle | 1 comment »

Hello everyone,I have recently been encouraged to join and participate in this great community since I have been making videos for about 6 months now. I’m always looking for new quality channels to subscribe to, so I figured I would introduce myself to the LumberJocks crew. Maybe I have some material that would be of interest to you.I started my YouTube journey when I found the channels for Matthias Wandel and Jimmy Diresta. Now I am making my own material and having a blast doing it...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1672: Looking Back/Looking Ahead

12-31-2015 12:32 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 12 comments »

I have always like New Year's Eve. Not necessarily for the parties (I am too old and boring for that!) but more so for the chance to 'start over'. It is kind of like Monday. A clean slate. New goals. Fresh beginnings. Over the years I have learned to let go of things. The older I get, the more I realize that hanging on to mistakes and things that didn't work out quite like we planned can be somewhat detrimental to us. It seems the time we spend dwelling on those errors in...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1671: Slowly Getting Back to It

12-28-2015 01:28 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

I do admit that the past several days have been nice. I made it a point to gear back and I actually stuck with it as much as I could. It seemed odd at first, but it really made a difference in my attitude and level of stress.I love posting my blog here every day. I think it not only helps others with questions and helps get word out as to what new things I am doing, but it is a big part in my own motivational process. I can't tell you all how many nights I was ready to wrap things up...
