My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #761: New Deadlines

07-13-2012 10:54 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 0 comments »

I suppose that there will always be deadlines that I have to think about. But that is a good thing – the more deadlines, the harder I push myself. I think that is one of the reasons that I am here everyday writing. By writing about what I plan to do, it puts it out here for all to see and that somehow keeps me pushing to get what I say I am going to do done. It sure helps when we are self-governing and have a day when we aren’t quite as ambitious as we would like. I know that...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #756: Wonderful Possibilities

07-08-2012 12:28 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

As I mentioned the other day, on Friday I received an email from my editor inquiring about the next project I was to be submitting for the magazine. The holiday issue was heading out to the printer and she was looking ahead to the next issue and beginning to map it out. This took me a bit by surprise (it should not have, but I have been busy in so many directions that I just wasn’t thinking about what to do next for the magazine!) Keith had asked me the week before if I was going t...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #755: Moving on to the Next Project

07-07-2012 12:10 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

It doesn’t take long after finishing one project to figure out that there is still a lot more to do. One thing that is for certain is that I will never be bored. After finishing up the new ornaments and patterns yesterday and getting them posted on the site, there was little time to rest on my laurels and sit idle. There is still a catalog deadline for one of my wholesalers coming up quickly and I want to submit a couple of things at least. Even though I have been working constant...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #754: New Free Pattern Posted

07-06-2012 10:35 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 8 comments »

After a crazy week of holidays, it’s hard to believe it is Friday already. Between Canada Day here and Independence Day in the states, the week certainly seems to have gone by quickly. Fortunately for us here in Nova Scotia, we haven’t had to experience the searing heat that many of my friends and family have endured. While it has been a bit warm and muggy, it is nothing like what others are going through and for that I am thankful. I spent yesterday writing the instructions...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #753: For the Birds

07-05-2012 11:58 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 9 comments »

Yesterday turned out to be a good and productive day. I not only finished up my ornament set, but I also finished the drawings for the next project that I will be offering. I really liked working on these. After the large production order, it was a welcome change to do something that was so detailed and precise. It was a good exercise for my mind. I have decided to incorporate the birdcage into a design of a small plaque that I will be offering free on my site. I like to offer a fr...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #751: Still Learning/Still Creating

07-03-2012 12:03 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

I started my day today learning something. I suppose that is a good way to start things off, even if it wasn’t your intention. Some days I am sure we can get through the entire day without learning a thing. Here it is before 8am and I already learned something important. I feel like I am already ahead of the game and today will be a fine day. I got a lot done yesterday. I got all caught up on my financial and book work, (something that I have pledged to myself to keep up with th...

ScrollSaw Information and Resources #34: ETSY Product Decisions

07-02-2012 06:43 PM by jerrells | 2 comments »

As part of my decision to put some products on ETSY i did a little test. I choose three products, all clocks but a different designs. I E-Mailed pictures of all three to freinds of mine and ask the to choose one that they might take a second look at or be somewhat interested in IF they were surfing a WEB Site and saw them. The results: Clock A got 2 votes Clock B got 2 votes Clock C got (you guessed it) 2 votes. WELL I guess that helped my decisions process a lot.

ScrollSaw Information and Resources #33: Deciding which products to put on ETSY

07-01-2012 11:22 PM by jerrells | 1 comment »

So, in my last BLOG entry I posed that I was considering posting products on ETSY. I got a lot of good responses. Now the decision of “WHICH ONES”. If you do not know, ESTY has a “Sellers Handbook” available on its site. Problem is that it is all in little segments and, therefore, not easy to print. However, as I am doing a real careful search and study on this, I copied all of the important sections and pasted them into a WORD document, all 100 pages. They, also, s...

ScrollSaw Information and Resources #32: Selling on the ETSY WEB Site

06-26-2012 02:20 PM by jerrells | 2 comments »

I am considering posting my scrollsaw products on the ETSY WEB Site. Hoave any of you experience with this process and have you had success. The whole idea seems simple. Very low cost to post an item – 20 centrs for four months and then 3.5% or the sale if you make one. Looking at the site stats it seems to get a lot of traffic – 1.3 million page views per month and 3 million items sold. This really seems like a NO-BRAINER. YEs if you really want to be successful you have got t...
