The Great Box Sale Adventure #3: I Didn't want to Do it...

08-25-2015 04:30 PM by maplerock | 14 comments »

My last (and only) attempt at a Craft/Art show was not a huge success. Other than good company and a festive atmosphere, it was a lot of work for little sales. You guys all know that woodworking is an expensive hobby (or business for you talented guys) and if you don’t make some money, you are limited in what you can do (or what the wife will allow you to do.) I have been placing a few boxes in boutiques and galleries instead of at shows. I’ve had the same lackluster resul...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1609: Multi-Tasking

08-25-2015 12:02 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

Yesterday I felt a lot more like myself. After a couple of weeks of feeling a bit 'lost' I was back in full swing again working on three different projects at various stages. There's nothing like some good, solid deadlines to kick start us back to productivity!I know I am not alone in feeling this way. I have many friends who design and create all kinds of crafts from woodworking to painting and just about everything in between. I have seen them struggle and I have seen them soar ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1608: Back to Creating

08-24-2015 11:08 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

After a much needed break, I am back and finally feel ready to move forward in a productive manner. It isn't because I have been short of ideas. Actually it is quite the contrary. I have so many things that I want to do that I seem to have been somewhat 'stuck' as to which direction I want to head first. It is as if all the thoughts and ideas have bottle-necked in my head and as a result, I have been quite overwhelmed.Add to that my little back issue that remained (I haven...

Hello everyone, I just love resawing. Don’t know why…There’s something magical about is. On this video I resaw some nice woods for my clients. The bandsaw I use is a Felder 510 with a DoAll Olympia 2 tpi blade on it. Thanks for watching !

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1606: Numbers

08-13-2015 12:19 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

With the summer months here, it seems we are running just a bit slower. I know I am. I don't know if it was because of the back issues or if is attributed to some things that have been on my mind. We all go through highs and lows though, and for the most part, things are still moving in a forward direction – just slower. The only thing that seems to be moving quickly is "time". It is hard for me to believe that it is the middle of August already. It seems that summer ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1605: There's Hope

08-12-2015 11:06 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

Yesterday I had to skip posting. Our internet had become so spotty that it was difficult to stay online for any length of time. Over the past couple of weeks, both Keith and I noticed the problem was getting worse. The thing that got us wondering though was that much of the time it would work fine, but then it would be 'dragging' for increasing lengths of time. Sometimes hours. It is funny how dependent we have become on the internet. Not only for our business, but for our every ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1604: Baby Steps

08-10-2015 11:45 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

There are times when I get impatient with myself. I always have lots of plans and things that I want to do, and many times I only get a fraction of the things actually finished. If by some chance I do get close to the bottom of my list, I then feel that I didn't set my goals high enough. As you can see, I am kind of setting my self up for a 'no win' situation. It is hard sometimes to be objective though. Especially when I am dealing with myself. As I look at the Facebook post...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1603: The Black Cat Society

08-07-2015 12:35 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 8 comments »

All of you who know me know how much I love cats. I have had cats all my life and they are always a huge part of my daily living. I also love autumn and the beautiful fall colors. the deep, rich tones are always a pleasure to paint and work with. Last year I had an idea for a plaque for autumn/fall/Halloween. Unfortunately, it was a bit late in the season when I thought of it and I had to move on to other things. I was determined to have it done for this year. Like many ideas that I...
