My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1631: Self-Challenges

10-02-2015 12:32 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

It felt so good to be caught up yesterday. That, by no means translates to being 'done' with everything – but it more or less means that I am on a workable schedule. For a while there, I thought I was slipping, with getting things completed just under the wire. While I like to have deadlines to pace myself, there are times that the sneak up faster than I anticipate and I find myself wondering if I will be able to meet them. It can be a slippery slope when I don't leave enoug...

My Wife Makes A Pumpkin Door Hanger On The Scroll Saw

09-27-2015 01:27 AM by Chris McDowell | 9 comments »

Watch the video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KdAK5fz7n3A My wife has picked up the scroll saw in the last year. She expressed an interest in scrolling so I bought an entry level Shop Fox 16” scroll saw for her. She’s made plenty of things including the pumpkin door hanger for our front door shown in the picture below. She saw a similar thing at a store, took a picture of it, and made one of her own at home. She has had 7 or 8 orders from people wanting her to make one ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1627: On to the Weekend!

09-25-2015 12:00 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

It is hard to believe that we have another weekend under our belts! But with the mornings getting cooler and the darkness lasting a little longer each day, it is hard to forget that the beautiful summer weather is giving way to autumn. Time surely passes quickly when we are busy! Yesterday I spent the day with Keith updating the site and getting out my bi-weekly newsletter. We changed all the sales on our Pattern Specials page and we added another new pattern that Keith created. This tim...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1626: Update Day

09-24-2015 10:28 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 0 comments »

I got up early this morning and it is still dark two hours later. It is odd how quickly the days get shorter once a certain point is reached. It is getting dark much sooner as well, and I suspect that is why I wound up going to bed shortly after 10pm my time. It just seemed like my day was done. I love these cool, autumn mornings. Even though we are only a day into autumn, it is nice to be able to say that. I sat on the deck yesterday with the cats for a bit, just taking in the warm sun ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1625: Purpose and Meaning Through Art

09-23-2015 12:46 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 9 comments »

At some time or another in our lives, most of us search for our purpose here on Earth. The reason we are here. The meaning of what our life is and why we are here in the first place. We want our lives to have meaning and purpose, I believe. We want to think that all the hard work and things we go through on a daily basis are for a reason. That somehow, in some small way we make a difference in the world. That somehow we make it better. There are professions that are obviously noble....

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1624: Little by Little

09-22-2015 12:28 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 7 comments »

Good things take time. I have to keep reminding myself of that. In today's world of 'instant gratification', we sometimes forget that everything we have and want can't always happen in an instant. Sometimes there is just no way around taking the proper steps and doing things methodically. I am often reminded of this with my work. While I see a 'vision' of my finished project in my head, I don't always see the many steps it will require to get to that poin...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1618: Veining Lines

09-09-2015 12:29 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

It felt good to get such nice feedback on my angel ornament project that I showed here yesterday. I am pretty excited about it myself. It felt good to really get something going in a good direction for my very patient woodworking followers. It turned out to be a very busy day. While I was answering the many email that I received, I also had some orders for some wood pieces I had to cut so I shifted gears and went to the saw for a couple of hours. Even though I always have things to do, I...
