My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #33: The Benefits of Owning Your Own Business

07-06-2010 01:16 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

One of the most rewarding aspects of my life are getting to know my customers and fellow woodworkers. I believe they are the force that drives me to do the best job I can do. As I see my business grow, I find that there is more and more interaction with my customers and although it takes time, it is quite a rewarding aspect of my life. Interaction with others comes in many forms. I receive emails from people asking questions or help, I talk with people on the forums and give advice or hel...

ScrollSaw Information and Resources #7: ScrollSaw Information and Resources #7:

02-23-2011 10:04 PM by jerrells | 4 comments »

OK Jocks – I have a blade question. I have a Porter Cable 16” scrollsaw (like you get at the big hardware stores) and I am starting to have problems with the lower blade holder. When using PLAIN END blades (loike a #2) seems like the lower clamp lets go most of the time. It is getting fuustrating. I tighten it as hard as I can and make sure it is in the center of the screw. What else cai/should I be doing. This is no fun at all.

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1307: A New Idea in the Works

05-02-2014 10:58 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

I woke up to a dense fog this morning.  I hope it means that it is finally getting warmer. Our weather here in Nova Scotia has still been pretty dull and rainy. But I suppose I should be happy that it isn't snow. Even I have had enough of that. It felt odd to be 'caught up' with everything. It isn't that I don't have anything to do – as I have lots of new ideas that I am anxious to work on – but with nothing really pressing, I find that sometimes it s...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #548: Thanks for the Great Responses Yesterday!

12-10-2011 02:47 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

I want to start off today’s post with thanking all of those who helped out and posted your thoughts and participated in yesterday’s discussion. The responses were quite overwhelming not only here on Lumberjocks, but also on the Sheila Landry Designs page and my Facebook. It just shows what a hot topic picking the right tool is and judging from all the responses and also all the personal emails I received, I think that together we all helped a great deal of people. Discussions...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #599: The Blink of an Eye

01-31-2012 03:21 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

When I lived in the Chicago area, I grew up with the notion that the weather could change at any time. One minute it would be 70 degrees and sunny and half an hour later you would need your heavy coat and rain gear. It was one of the residual effect of living lakeside and many errant weather forecasts were attributed to ‘lake effect.’ I find that living here in Nova Scotia is no different. Whether it is the ocean or the changing climate that the entire planet is going through,...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #834: My Weekend 'Off'

10-01-2012 11:18 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

I’ts funny how time off can mean different things to different people. While some people live for the weekend to totally switch gears and not think about their jobs until Monday, there are others who really don’t mind their work, and take each day as it comes and enjoy it. I definitely fall into the second category. Being fortunate enough to be doing something that I love to do and work in a creative field, much of the time I am working it doesn’t even feel like ‘...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1122: More Spooky Things

09-04-2013 10:37 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

I did accomplish a great deal yesterday, although much of it was the type of stuff that I can’t really show pictures of. I spent most of the morning and part of the afternoon editing the photographs that are going to be included with my Snowflake Damask project for the magazine. I shipped out the project already, and I must say I really hated to see that one go. I probably won’t see it back until sometime next spring. I did get to spend some time to do some painting, although ...

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 ...
