My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1754: Halfway Through a Huge Milestone

08-02-2016 12:34 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

Those of you who know me know that I am a firm believer in goals. Perhaps I developed this trait while working with several arts and crafts magazines for over 20 years. I am sitting here trying to think if I was so 'goal-orientated' prior to those days, or if that was when it really became embedded within me. No matter what the reason, there is no turning back. Goals are part of my life and imperative to keeping me moving forward with both my work and my life. I think they are a ...

Project Ideas, Hmm... #3: Coaster Caddy/Stand

02-17-2016 04:42 PM by Dave Rutan | 2 comments »

The other day I was sitting at the conference room table I made for my church. Our pastor loves it and always has some small piece of statuary on it. He also has a small pile of cheap coasters behind the statuary. The thought occurred to me to build a sort of small stand that the statue could rest on and would also hold coasters in such a way that they wouldn’t just be a pile of coasters. I’m getting an image of an octagonal sandwich with the coasters as the filling. An octa...

Christmas Ornament

11-15-2015 05:27 PM by PCorl | 0 comments »

With the holiday season approaching I decided to make a Christmas Ornament on the scroll saw. I downloaded a pattern from Steve Good’s site (www.scrollsawworkshop.blogspot.com) and went to work. Here is a link to the video that I made: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oWyIuk1K5PA hope you enjoy the video and thanks for watching.

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1618: Veining Lines

09-09-2015 12:29 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

It felt good to get such nice feedback on my angel ornament project that I showed here yesterday. I am pretty excited about it myself. It felt good to really get something going in a good direction for my very patient woodworking followers. It turned out to be a very busy day. While I was answering the many email that I received, I also had some orders for some wood pieces I had to cut so I shifted gears and went to the saw for a couple of hours. Even though I always have things to do, I...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1475: Busy with "Business"

01-13-2015 01:26 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

Yesterday was one of those crazy/busy days that seemed to be over before it began. It seemed like the every day business tasks (answering emails, filling orders, talking to customers) filled the majority of the time. Before I knew it, it was getting dark and I was running out of steam.  I am not at all complaining about this, as I realize it is part of having a business that is successful, but I am afraid it doesn't make for much interesting blog reading for you. So I decided to show...

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'...
