My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1801: New Patterns and UPDATE Time!

11-18-2016 01:46 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

It is hard to believe we are at the end of another week already. I have been trying my best to stay caught up with things, and for the most part, I think I am doing alright. I have long ago abandoned the idea having to do "x" number of designs per week/month/year. If I measured my productivity by those numbers alone, surely it would be depressing and I wouldn't be fair to myself. There is so much more that is involved in my day-to-day activity that takes a good deal of time.&nbs...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1795: Product Test - Krylon Gallery Series Fine Art Fixativ

10-28-2016 02:27 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

Today's post will be pretty much to the point. I have already been out and back and have a multitude of tasks that I need to work on today. It is all a great deal of fun though, and I wouldn't have it any other way. Most of you have seen my completed pastel drawing of my dear cat Pancakes: I have had such a wonderful response to it that I can't express my appreciation for your wonderful support. It really helps me feel as if I am heading in the right direction with my art ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1790: #1790 On the Ninth Day of Christmas . . .

10-18-2016 01:02 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 0 comments »

Yesterday was a good day in many respects. Not only did I feel as if I got a bit caught up with things, but I was feeling a bit more like myself again. (My productive self, that is!)  I think the two days away really did me a world of good. Not only was in inspired by seeing so much creativity and beauty, but I got a chance to not think about the business, my computer or any of my day-to-day tasks for a short time. While I missed having Keith travel with me, it was a comfort knowing that...

Bench Restore

10-13-2016 03:17 AM by ShogunJimi | 0 comments »

This build was a result of a challenge from another you-tuber named Opa Koster. I really liked the results and wanted to share the pictures and video here on lumberjocks. The bench was bought from a local antique store and was painted with some ugly green paint over the wood and cast iron. I had quite a task to remove that paint and primer from the cast iron. I liked the back cast iron piece but I envisioned a different project for it. So it has been saved it for a later project ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1787: Catching Up

10-11-2016 12:46 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

I feel as if I haven't done you all justice lately. Things have been quite busy here and I have been burning the oil late to try to squeeze more hours from the day. Because of that, something has to give and I find myself not getting up until after 6am in the morning. That may sound pretty early to some of you, but I always said that any time I put in before six was like a 'bonus' for me because I seemed to be so productive at that early hour. Any time I awoke that was after about...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1786: Mystery SOLVED!

10-07-2016 12:49 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

I am happy to report today that the "Mystery of the Missing Little Pusheen" has been SOLVED!  (I know that you all have probably lost sleep over it!  ;) )  It seems that when Keith awoke and got out of bed, there was the little toy snuggled into the covers with him!  Apparently, Richard my kitty had brought me the Little Pusheen earlier and then left the ADDITIONAL Kitty at the doorway after Keith came to bed and the door was closed. So he really had brought me T...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1784: Settling In

10-03-2016 01:17 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

It was a crazy/busy weekend. That means it went perfectly with my crazy/busy life of late. As usual, there is just so much I want to accomplish and only 24 meager hours per day to fit everything in. And for some reason – those hours seem to get shorter every year. I think it is some kind of trick . . . I am writing later than usual today because I have already been to the gym and back.  I am not usually one of those who boasts about my gym visits, but lately, whenever I c...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1783: Seeing Things Differently

09-30-2016 12:26 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 10 comments »

I really love designing. Whether it is scroll saw projects, painting projects or even needlework, I like taking ideas that I have in my head and making them into reality. Sometimes people wonder how I began doing design work, but that is a difficult thing for me to answer. If the term "designing" means changing things up and 'not following the rules or instructions' for a particular project, then I suppose I have been designing most of my life. It seems I always had the abil...

Making a fireplace bellows

09-28-2016 11:09 AM by Jim Finn | 1 comment »

Instructions for making functioning and decorative fireplace bellows: Feb. 9, 2004 (Up-dated Sept. 2016) I have made well over sixty of these. I developed this process and pattern from a carved bellows I bought in Norway in 1984. The decorative inlay process is explained in another blog of mine. Wood can be any kind that you like to use. Needed is about 30 inches of 1×8. One half-inch thick wood will also work if you can find it. I have used Oak, Cedar, Pine, Waln...
