Product Review #1: Different Microphones I use in my videos

12-07-2015 11:17 AM by Mike | 3 comments »

Lately, I have been receiving questions about what type of microphones I use when I make my videos. It got me thinking about the sound quality and how I can improve it on the cheap. I picked up the Takstar SGC-598 shotgun microphone for $30.00 online and I wanted to show the difference between a built in camera microphone, an external shotgun mic, and a headset mic can make. While you might not think this is directly related to woodworking, a lot of people are now filming their projects an...

Custom Wardrobe Build #1: Design

12-05-2015 07:41 PM by chadgr | 0 comments »

This Build starts with taking measurements of the space and discussions with the client! Once a decision has been reached about the design I can jump on sketch and come up with a design and renders, from which I can print out detailed cutting lists etc. The design consists of 3 cabinets built separately and then rejoined on location. The location itself is a third floor in a house and the only access is a spiral stair case which couldn’t be worse! This has meant that the design has h...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1664: Frost on the Pumpkin

12-04-2015 12:49 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 8 comments »

As time keeps marching on, we are getting closer and closer to the holiday season, as well as winter weather. When I awoke this morning, I looked out on my deck and saw this: The first significant indication that winter is just around the corner. Even though it seems that this past year has gone by too quickly, I tend to take each day as it comes, and appreciate it for what it is. I don't dread winter as many of my friends and family do. If anything, I find it forces us to sl...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1663: "Elf Mode"

12-03-2015 12:39 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

Even though I am creating something just about every day of my life, this time of year, brings me to a whole new level. As we enter the month of December, I can't help but feel a little stressed as I know my time to mail packages to my loved ones and friends far away is limited. Every year I vow to be ahead of the game, but it seems that most years I just squeak by.  I also love to participate in gift exchanges. I have so many talented online friends that create in a variety of mediu...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1662: Exciting New Prospects!

12-02-2015 01:46 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

Good day, my creative friends. It is a calm and peaceful morning here in Nova Scotia with an overcast sky and a hint of misty rain that can't seem to decide whether it wants to be rain or snow falling. I actually love these kinds of mornings. As I sit here sipping on my second cup of coffee under a soft, fluffy blanket with Richard curled at my feet I am listening to "The Nutcracker Suite" on my headphones and feeling quite cozy. It is going to be a fabulous day.I finished my pa...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1661: Preparing for "Hibernation"

12-01-2015 12:35 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

It seems like it has been weeks since I have written, even though it has only been a couple of days. These past few days I have been in "elf mode" and even though I have been terribly busy, I can't show much of what I am doing here yet. There are many surprises in the works.Over the weekend, I worked in many directions. I had wanted to make a pot of soup, but I haven't managed to do that yet.  Hopefully later on today.  I spent Saturday cutting orders and Sunday Ke...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1660: Sometimes Less is More

11-27-2015 01:41 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

I began writing a blog post yesterday (really I did) and just as I got started, the power went out. This was the second time in the past few weeks this happened, which was unusual because prior to that, we had kept power for years. One would think that I would have really been upset, but for some reason, I was not. I had just filled the orders that arrived overnight and the post was going to mostly be about some new things that I am going to work on in the future. Nothing that I can'...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1659: A Visit to the City

11-25-2015 01:36 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 1 comment »

I can’t believe the whirlwind of time passing these days! It seems that soon after the sun comes up, it begins to turn to dusk again. I know it is ‘that time’ of the year, and the darkeness never really bothers me, but I can’t help but feel that I am in a time warp. Every day is jam packed with thing to do! It is actually very exciting. Yesterday we needed to head to Halifax to take my Mustang to be worked on and stored. For those of you who have followed the renov...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1658: New Free Scroll Saw Pattern

11-23-2015 01:17 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 10 comments »

I had a wonderful and crazy/busy weekend. It is always busy this time of year, and this year is no exception. I not only began working on some Christmas gifts, but I also have been working on some different aspects to expand our little business. I can't wait to be able to share on that front, but since I am still figuring things out, I am going to wait. (I know! I can be downright MEAN! ;)  )Yesterday Keith's mom and I attended a penny sale for the cats that live on the nearby fi...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1657: Some More New Things

11-20-2015 01:42 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 0 comments »

Today is one of those days when I debated whether I should blog or not. Yesterday was one of those crazy/busy days when I finished my "work" at 11:30 pm (after being at it pretty much since I got up early in the morning!)  I am still looking at 91 emails in my mail box – 31 which aren't open yet – that need attention. Ahh . . . the luxury of being 'self-employed'!  :)I say that with a smile because those of you who read regularly know how much ...
