My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1699: New Things!

02-19-2016 02:25 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

Today is going to be one of those posts where everything comes together at once. I guess that is typical when I do projects such as what I just completed. It seemed like I was here, there and everywhere and then suddenly – "BAM" (that's for you, Mary! ;) )  everything falls together nicely! Well- sort of, anyway! (If it were only that easy!) We managed to get everything completed and up on the site yesterday. I was proud because I even had my pattern packet ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1698: BUNNIES!!!!

02-17-2016 01:49 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 7 comments »

I took the day off  from 'social media' yesterday for the most part because I was on a roll. I was in the process of finishing up sanding and packaging several wood orders that I wanted to get to the post by the time the truck came for pickup in the afternoon. (Check!)  I was also doing some drawing for a wonderful fellow designer and I wanted to get some things to her so she could get on with her own designing. She is creating some rubber stamps of her drawings and I am hel...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1697: Some Assembly Required

02-15-2016 01:52 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

I feel like I have been on the 'slow train' lately. I am not sure exactly why that is. It seems like I am doing something from the time I get up in the morning until the time I go to sleep. The days are passing much quicker than I would like them to. I look up at the clock and first it it mid-afternoon, then dinner time and then nearly midnight. How can time pass so quickly?  I don't remember it being like that in the past. Perhaps it is that my head is thinking up ...

Dust Collection??

02-02-2016 01:14 PM by Bob Rodrigues | 10 comments »

I’m in the market now for a dust collector. Being married with 2 kids there really isn’t a lot of money I can budget for this at this time. I’ve read the reviews on the Harbor Freight dust collector but I’m wondering If I could get some woodworkers perspective that have this unit. How is it? Does it work well? And is it ok to run pvc or gutter sewerage pipe instead of the metal stove type of piping???? Any info on this topic from all LJ’s would be great.

Dave's Workshop #14: T-Wrench Handle

01-25-2016 01:31 AM by Dave Rutan | 7 comments »

“Necessity is the mother of invention” as the old saw goes. When I was researching the scroll saw that I got, I found that the special T-wrench was missing. So I looked it up and found that it is metric and 3.5mm. 3.5mm is not really a standard size as I found. They aren’t included in sets of hex wrenches and to buy a T-wrench of that kind would cost more than I’m willing to spend. Then I just looked online for a normal Allen key that was 3.5mm and found that...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1684: You Don't Got a Thing if you Ain't Got That BLING!

01-22-2016 01:58 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

You knew I was going to do it . . . It was just a matter of time. You knew that I wouldn't be able to resist adding some BLING to my new SLD521 Damask Heart Ornaments and SLD522 Heart and Soul Candle Tray.But how could I resist?  The rhinestones I get from Rhinestone Canada are so PRETTY and they are so EASY to apply.  And you can't deny that they make them look better, can you??So I got out my heat wand and rhinestones and went to work . . .All I had to do was place th...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1683: Patience

01-20-2016 01:52 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

I was really happy that so many of you liked the look of the Metallic Lustre Acrylic Wax from DecoArt that I added to my latest scroll saw projects. After allowing it to dry a day, I continued to finish off the project. I know we live in a world where we want immediate results on everything, but sometimes we just need to wait a little bit and let things do their job or run their course for the best results. Not only when crafting, but in many situations in our lives. After posting m...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1682: Fun With DecoArt Metallic Lustre Acrylic Wax

01-18-2016 02:13 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

I had a truly busy weekend and I am finally feeling as if I am getting caught up with things. I spent much of Saturday cutting orders and I will be sending all of them out today. Then I can get on to more designing and some other things. I also finished creating the pattern packets for my SLD521 Damask Heart Ornaments and also my SLD522 Heart and Soul Damask Candle Tray that I showed last week. I am really thrilled with these patterns and I love how they came out. But . . . Whi...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1681: Update Time!

01-15-2016 01:45 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

As the second week of the new year comes to a close, I find myself reflecting. Not so much on the year 2015, but on the last two weeks – the beginning of 2016. It has been a crazy ride so far, with many wonderful things happening. It seems our customer base is growing every day, and I have had lots and lots of orders to fill.Even though it has been a lot of hard work, I find myself happy and grateful. After all – this is what I have been striving for the past several years. I have...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1679: Details, Details

01-12-2016 01:35 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

I love my job. There is always something new and exciting to work on, and it seems that I never run short of ideas for patterns for scrolling, painting and other types of creating. I think that the variety of mediums that I create in help keep me creative and always thinking of new things to make. It keeps me fresh. After the past week or so of cutting over 50 dozen simple shaped ornaments, I was ready for something a little different. With the Valentine's Day holiday quickly approac...
