My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1746: 50 Shades of Grey and Other Adventures

07-15-2016 11:44 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

If anything, we are learning that expanding to a full sized home from a one bedroom apartment is an 'adventure'.  While customizing things to our own needs and preferences is fun, it is a lot of work and takes a great deal of time. Yesterday we decided to take off to New Minas – a town that is about two hours away – as that is where the nearest Home Depot store is located. I mentioned before that I had not finished with my scroll saw room and one of the things th...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1745: The Scroll Saw Room - My "Little Shop"

07-13-2016 11:21 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

Today's post won't be too long, but I wanted to show the progress that I made yesterday. As I mentioned, getting things how we like will be a 'work in progress'.  For people like Keith and myself, we have little understanding of that concept. We like to have everything done quickly, efficiently and pretty close to immediately. We are just like that. But in life, things can't always happen instantly. I think that the older we get, the more we realize it. No matter...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1744: Routines

07-12-2016 10:55 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

Routines. We need them for order, guidance and pacing. They help us set and keep goals and they keep us organized and productive.  Some people don't like routines, but I am one who embraces them completely. Perhaps that is from being around cats all of my life, as they are big fans of routines, as are many animals. The past several weeks have been anything but "routine" for me. From the time we first saw our new home early in March, I have been a bit out of step. ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1743: I'm BACK!!

07-11-2016 10:58 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 9 comments »

It has been a crazy couple of weeks! Even though I didn't get much 'work' done, I don't think I have ever worked harder in  my life. Perhaps it is because I am a touch older now (EGADS!) Or maybe it was because this was the first time that I had to not only move myself, but a moderately successful business as well. It certainly entailed much more than I had anticipated. But all went well and there were barely any hiccups in the process. We were fortunate in so many r...

Woodworking Interviews #2: Marc Spagnuolo, aka The Wood Whisperer Interview

06-29-2016 09:08 PM by CharlieK | 3 comments »

View on YouTube One of the absolute high points of my 2016 winter road trip was meeting Marc Spagnuolo, aka The Wood Whisperer at his shop outside Phoenix, AZ. One of the cool things about this interview is that he gave some real insights into the Business Side of Woodworking and Woodworking on the Internet. I posted on Facebook when I was in Arizona that I would like to interview another woodworker while I was there. I had heard that Marc lived in the Phoenix area, but I never expec...

Big Changes to the YouTube Channel!

06-28-2016 01:56 PM by Woodworker_Collins | 0 comments »

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V7WtAFzQIVU So in the last month I realised that I needed to get my YouTube act together. I want to strive towards and to do this I realised I need to become more consistent and put my effort into social media! I want to aim towards at least a video every 2 weeks if not weekly while also putting more effort into the editing of the videos themselves. But I need your help, your sharing, commenting, rating and most importantly subscribing helps grow my...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1742: The Move is ON!

06-20-2016 01:57 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 8 comments »

It is funny how something that has been a habit so long can fall out of being a habit so quickly. In the past couple of weeks, so many habits that I have acquired over time have been greatly altered. I expect it will be like that for the next few weeks, as we received the KEYS to our new place and are going to finally be able to start moving things there! How exciting this is for us!I am filled with a wide range of emotions right now. I go from being excited and happy to being completely over...
