My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #975: Changing Seasons

03-05-2013 12:33 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

The sun just came up a short while ago and it looks like another day of warming and melting. Spring is definitely on its way. While most people like spring, I can’t say that it is my favorite time of year. To me, for the most part it is bleak and sloppy and muddy. At least at this point of time it is where I live. It is as if nature teases us with a hint of a warm and sunny day here and there, only to retreat back into the dull dreariness of winter. While I enjoy the winter season...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1493: Working Weekend

02-09-2015 12:57 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

I didn't post this weekend because I was in the middle of several different projects. We are hoping to do our site update this week and I had some ideas for new scroll sawing patterns that I wanted to work on. I did that along with working on painting the first piece of furniture that Keith built for our reorganizing project. If you remember, the first  piece was a printer stand that would also hold the bodies of our two computers and also the modem and router: Since this is ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1513: CHICKS!!!!!!

03-10-2015 11:48 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

Yesterday I featured a sweet bunny basket and accessory pattern. I mentioned that it was just one of four new designs that I completed over the weekend. While I showed you some "snapshots" of the finished project, I spent the day taking what I call 'presentation photos' of all four projects. Having nice photos is really helpful when selling patterns. I find that people enjoy not only seeing nice, clear photos of what the pattern includes, but also likes suggestions of h...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1567: Gears are Turning

06-05-2015 12:20 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

I took the day off of blogging yesterday because I slept in a bit. By the time I awoke it was after 8:30 am (which is LATE for me!) and by the time I got through the morning mail, it was already rather late to begin writing. I figured since I was in 'recovery mode' from the previous weeks work, there wouldn't be much to miss anyway. The world would get along without me for a morning. ;) We spent a good part of the day updating the site. While Keith does most of the computer w...

Japanese style lamp #2: Style # 2 - Persimmion Box

06-09-2013 04:09 PM by SPHinTampa | 4 comments »

I really enjoyed my first Japanese style lamp so I thought I would try another: It is a box style lamp called the Persimmon. I didnt really like the approach to joinery (all butt joints) for this lamp so I made a few alterations to include rabbeted edges. I also used a handle from another project because I liked the style more. Here is the general idea: Here are the general steps for this session: 1. Made the base from mahogany using miter joints2. Made handle from mahogany us...

Scroll Saw Stand #2: I finished the stand

03-09-2010 06:59 AM by David Craig | 4 comments »

Quick little project and it didn’t take long. Two items I wish I would have spent a little more time planning out before committing myself to cutting action…. 1. I got in a hurry on one of the stretchers and didn’t predrill the hole. So I had a little bit of blowout when driving the screw. 2. I changed my mind on the positioning after I drill a couple holes to house the base. Ummmm, next time I should probably think about that before putting a drill in my hand. Mino...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #266: Scrollgirl Sells Sea Shells in Saratoga Springs

02-24-2011 03:38 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

Alright. I couldn’t resist the title. I suppose that I have sea shells on the brain. I spent the majority of the day yesterday once again preparing for the classes that I will be teaching a the show. With most of the scroll saw things lined up, that leaves the task of getting the painting items done and ready to go. Even though I have several weeks until I leave, I need to get this all in order and done because I have to order the paint and line up the brushes and all of that. ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1612: More New Pattern Designs

08-28-2015 11:56 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

This morning when I sat down here at my spot at my computer, ready to do the mail, my little cat Pancakes hopped right up here and snuggled in. He had greeted me with cooing and 'chirps' this morning and I was heating up my coffee – more enthusiastic than usual. Perhaps it is because he 'knows' that I made some cinnamon shortbread cookies last night and he knows me well enough to remember that I may steal one to have with my coffee for breakfast. He loves cookies and see...
