My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1455: 'Tis the Season

12-03-2014 01:30 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

It has been a truly crazy couple of days for me. Most of it has been good, but some of it has been silly. I have been in so many directions that I don't know what to talk about first! I received TWO beautiful gifts from ornament swaps that I participated in this year! I love ornament swaps because it gives me a chance to have something that is made by a fellow woodworker or painter. It is always fun and exciting to give and receive a 'secret' gift from someone who shares...

Build a Decorative Sled

11-26-2014 06:53 PM by A Slice of Wood Workshop | 2 comments »

Making decorations is fun. Woodworking, welding, and smithing are also fun. This time I combine them all and create a decorative sled. This is a very simple project that will get plenty of years use. Check the video out, leave comments, and make sure to like and subscribe! Click here for video. Also, does anyone know where the old embed code went to? I can no longer see it on YouTube to embed the video here.

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1450: More New Scroll Saw Designs!

11-25-2014 01:11 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 1 comment »

Today's post is going to be rather short (well – by my standards anyway!)  Both Keith and I are working very hard to get some more new designs to you for your holiday crafting. Keith just finished a beautiful new set of ornaments that are in his very popular filigree style. I believe he finished up the pattern last night and he should be making them available on the site sometime later today. I think they are just stunning: I also have been working on a couple of new sc...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1448: Different Strokes for Different Folks

11-20-2014 12:30 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

I had a very busy day yesterday. But it was the kind of day that was also a great deal of fun. (I have had a lot of those lately!) I spent the majority of it decorating my new SLD485 Holiday Lights Damask ornaments that I previewed to you yesterday. I had cut several sets of them because I knew I wanted to play with them and experiment with many of the wonderful finishes that I had here from DecoArt and hot fix rhinestones from Rhinestone Canada.  I had several ideas of how I wanted to d...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1447: Slow and Steady

11-19-2014 11:44 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

I am the first to admit that I am not a fast worker. Be it painting, scroll sawing, sewing or anything else, I find that it usually takes me quite a bit longer than the average person to accomplish most things.I also admit that it used to bother me, but as I get older, it doesn't seem to do so as much anymore. As we accumulate large quantities of what we are making, adding to the pile just seems to . . . well . . . add to the pile and sometimes I feel that things lose their 'spec...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1435: "Unstuck"

11-02-2014 01:12 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 10 comments »

Well, it appears that I am on the 'other side'. Whatever was causing my creative block has moved on, and things are once again moving in a positive direction. I wish I knew what caused those little hiccups in my creative process. As I said the other day – I think all designers and creative people go through it at one time or another. When we are in the midst of that 'creative block' we simply can't understand why nothing seems to feel right. Is it mood? The weat...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1433: Night Shift

10-28-2014 01:22 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

Most of you all know that I am a morning person. Any time after 5am is a good time for me to get up and start my day. I love the morning quiet and I feel like I accomplish lots of work during that calm time of the day. Give me a cup of coffee, a cat or two on my lap, my computer and I am good to go! Because of this, I try to stop working some time before 9pm. While that sounds like a long day to some, you all have to remember that I really love what I do and most of the time it doesn'...
