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 Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #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 Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #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 Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #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...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1669: Some Time Away - A Gift to Myself

12-15-2015 01:22 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

Many of you may have noticed that I haven't been posting as regularly these past couple of weeks. It isn't that I haven't been doing things, but I have been doing things that I really don't want to share in public at this point. Over the past six years of almost daily blogging, I have met many online friends from all over the world. I have also reconnected with friends and family from different times in my life, and I have enjoyed getting to know them again – some w...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1668: 'Tis the Season

12-11-2015 01:39 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

I truly don't know where the time goes. I know I said that many times recently, but it is hard for me to comprehend that it is already December 11th and the Christmas season is upon us.Perhaps the reason for autumn passing so quickly is that it is my favorite time of year. After all, we know that when we are enjoying something a great deal time seems to pass in the blink of the eye.Maybe it is because this is also the 'busiest' time of year for most people. So many of my friends a...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1667: Different Strokes for Different Folks - DecoArt Traditions Brush Review

12-10-2015 01:36 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

I am finding it kind of hard to decide what to write about these days. As Christmas is quickly approaching, I have been working diligently on some gifts that I am going to be sending out soon. As you can imagine, the gifts are heading for my family and friends, and many of them check in on my blog every once and a while. I do want to have what I am making them a bit of a surprise, so I can't really talk about things. It is a bit of a dilemma. We are two weeks away from Christmas, and...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1666: Creating for Gifts

12-09-2015 01:04 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

I know I am not alone when I wonder where the time goes. It seems like just yesterday we were looking forward to spring and now already we are closing out the year. This week has been particularly busy for me because I have a few boxes that NEED to go out within the next couple of days in order to arrive in time for the holidays. I have really been pushing it. Naturally, because these things I am working on are gifts, I won't be showing them here in my blog yet. As you can imagine, i...
