My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1138: Site Update Complete!

09-27-2013 11:07 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

What a busy day yesterday was again! Once again, the week just flew by and here we are looking at Friday again already. I try to take time to enjoy these autumn days, but with so much to do, I seem to get wrapped up in things and before I know it, the day is over. As I look back though, I did get a lot of things done. I finished putting together my last packet for the new site update and also was able to write the newsletter and get it out by late afternoon. Writing the newsletter is co...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1129: Site Update with New Patterns Available

09-12-2013 11:50 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 7 comments »

I am happy to say that we got all the new items posted on the site and everything is updated. Things have been fast and furious here and we find that we are updating a little more often. Our usual schedule was to do so about twice a month, but it seems that we have so many new things coming out that every other week is a bit better. I think it is better to have slightly more frequent updates rather than a longer time in between where we have so many new things that it may become overwhelmin...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1095: The Holiday Issue of Creative Woodworks and Crafts is Out!

08-03-2013 12:01 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 8 comments »

Good day to you all! I spent the much of the day yesterday getting things lined up for my next set of patterns. Hopefully, my new design will be put up on the site later on today, although I don’t think we will do another newsletter just yet. Keith has some new things that he is working on as well and we would like to wait until we have a few things to talk about before sending a newsletter. We try not to send more than two per month, as we don’t want to be bothersome to our cus...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1069: On to Writing Instructions

06-29-2013 11:48 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

It was a great relief to finish the set of ornaments that I have been working on for almost two weeks. Having the pieces finished and in front of me was very satisfying. I liked how they came out, and I am very appreciative of the warm kind and encouraging comments that everyone has shown regarding them. But painting the pieces is only part of the process. Now comes the work of photographing them for the pattern packet, as well as adjusting the step-by-step photos that I had taken along...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1068: 12 Days and Counting . . .

06-28-2013 11:31 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 7 comments »

As it turned out, I spent the bulk of yesterday finishing up and refining the 12 Days ornament set(s). What I thought would only take an hour or two, wound up taking until nearly 10pm in the evening. I say that without dismay or disappointment. Things just take time. While the main parts of the pieces were completed, I still needed to do refinements on them as well as finish them. The edges of the ornaments weren’t painted, and while the edges of the laser cut pieces that were pro...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1063: The Half-Way Mark

06-19-2013 10:35 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

What a beautiful morning it is! One would think that starting the day with a mundane chore like putting the garbage on the curb would be poopie, but I think with the right point of view, even something like that could be pleasant. Yes – I know I am crazy! Shortly after it got light out, I was making my morning coffee and saw my Google reminder that today was garbage day. While I waited for the water to boil I thought I may as well get it to the curb early. There was a foggy mist...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1045: Nativity Key Ornaments Finished

05-28-2013 11:02 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 9 comments »

I really want to thank everyone for all the nice comments on the Christmas box project that I posted yesterday. It meant a great deal to me – especially after the issues that I had with making it. There were times when I thought that I may abandon the idea of doing it altogether, and I am really happy that I stuck with it. In figuring some things out, I feel that it will open the door for future box designs using that construction method. As I said – it is a challenge to make ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1044: The Christmas Box

05-27-2013 11:31 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 18 comments »

After a somewhat bumpy road of construction and design, I have finished my Christmas box. I say the road was ‘bumpy’ because there were a few issues that I had in both the design and the execution of creating this box. I can however say that I have ironed out all of those bumps and recreating this pieces should be very easy for those who wish to do so. I am happy with the results. Those of you who read saw that my first attempt of cutting the lid design included the misspel...
