My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1023: Moving Forward

05-01-2013 11:11 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

Yesterday turned out to be a very productive day. Not only was the sun warm and shining bright, but manythings fell into place to start me on my next several designs. (Yes! I said several designs!) This is a good feeling. Perhaps after all of these years I am truly figuring our a process that works well for me in order to keep my new designs flowing. I find myself settled on projects for many different branches of my business and even got some things mapped out to develop some new area...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1563: "The Zone"

05-29-2015 11:30 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

I had an amazingly productive day yesterday! It was one of those days that went somewhat like this:     - I had a plan     - I set a goal     - I stayed FOCUSED     - I worked     - I got the job DONE! It isn't that I don't always TRY to work like this. But most of us know that many days, we make plans to accomplish things and even with our best efforts, sometimes life just gets in the way. It happens to m...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1402: Busy Days are the BEST!

09-13-2014 12:10 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

Those of you who know me know that my favorite season is quickly approaching. While I enjoy summer and even winter, I always think that autumn is the best time of year. I love the warm days and cool nights. I love the colors and crispness in the air. I also love seeing the beautiful foliage and colors that the season brings.I have many fond memories of this time of year. I always enjoyed school, as it was once again an opportunity to reconnect with friends that I missed seeing over the summer...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1220: Making Progress . . .

01-16-2014 12:00 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

Yesterday turned out to be another day that just got away from me, although I did accomplish quite a bit. I spent most of the day writing the instructions for the Bunny Toy Replica project that I had shown last week. I find that as time goes on my woodworking skills are improving and I find better, easier ways to do things and I like to incorporate that into my projects. It is nice to know that I am still learning and improving. The rest of the day I spent working on my little ballerin...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #832: 'Lacy Wood' (Not Lacewood)

09-28-2012 10:47 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

Adding something to things doesn’t always result in improving them. Sometimes the best way to make something better is to take away from it. That is certainly true when you scroll saw. There are so many reasons that I love scroll sawing. I like the way that it is something that doesn’t require a lot of tools. All you pretty much need is a scroll saw and a drill or drill press and you are for the most part good to go. I like that the variety of work you can do with the scrol...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1481: Some More New Designs

01-23-2015 01:32 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

Today's post will be quick. (Yes! I know I always say that!) But I really will try because I have lots to do today and need to keep moving. We are getting ready for another site update, and hopefully we will have everything in place by tomorrow. Both Keith and I have some new patterns that we want to post and we hope to put some different patterns on special as well. I am still writing up the packets for my two new scroll sawing patterns and I should be done by this afternoon (barrin...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #575: Picture This

01-06-2012 01:27 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

Today is one of those ‘in between’ days. You all know what I mean. I’m kind of finishing up one thing and starting another. I have been working on the pattern packet for the new ornaments yesterday and that took up most of my time. I played around with the pictures for the bulk of the day, trying to get them just right. There are so many things involved with taking pictures. I find that I am always learning and as we all know, learning something new takes a bit of tim...

Scrolled Wooden Puzzles #2: Alligator and Grasshopper

07-25-2008 02:49 AM by Allison | 4 comments »

My next step has been taken and that is to cut out all the inside pieces with the starter holes. I have done many of these puzzles and normally I have cut them by simply cutting off a letter at a time. Besides the middle of the A’s and R’s and O’s and P’s a person does not even need to place a starter hole in the other places if you are to cut the letters out one at a time. In the letters L,L,I,G, if I were to have cut the letters OFF one at a time then these inside cu...

HO Scale Furniture Build #1: Building the new saw table

06-06-2010 10:22 PM by OttoH | 4 comments »

Well the gauntlet has been thrown and being the foolhardy individual I am I have accepted the challenge. After a friend of mine saw the Barbie Doll sized furniture (1/6 scale) I made for the Nothing New Except The Glue challenge they said, “I’ll bet you can’t do that in HO scale” and after a long discussion and a friendly wager the challenge was on. I am now trying to figure out how to make a functioning furniture in 1/87 scale. I will start with the easy pieces first and then move on to t...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1173: New Projects Completed! Time To Write Pattern Packets!

11-23-2013 11:54 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

I will get right down to business this morning because I have a LOT that I want to accomplish today! I pretty much finished up the new ornaments and today I need to write instructions for the pattern packet, as well as the ornaments that I showed earlier this week and the “Gloria” candle tray that was featured in the holiday issue of Scrollsaw Woodworks and Crafts magazine so I can get everything on the website and do the site update. Here are pictures of the “Gloria&#...
