My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #343: Getting Back to Normal

05-18-2011 01:20 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 10 comments »

Little by little I am beginning to feel a bit better. I felt better yesterday than Monday and I feel better today than yesterday. As long as I feel there is improvement, I am happy. I went to see my own doctor yesterday and she confirmed that there was swelling in my back. I got one more prescription to help with that so hopefully that will also help me get back to normal quickly. I was happy to hear from her that she thought I should move around and not just stay sitting or in bed. In ...

52 Weeks #19: Week 19-Workshop Solution and a practice in progress

05-16-2011 03:44 AM by clieb91 | 3 comments »

Not a ton to write about this evening, it has been quite a long week at work and I will show why later on in the week. Since I also worked on Saturday I only got a little bit of shop time last night and today. Having received my blade holders and a manual (many kudos to Dremel customer service) for my scroll saw this week, I decided I should take some time to sit down and do some more practice. First though I had to come up with a way attach the saw to my workbench. Here is what I cam...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #338: "De-Bugging" and Some Project Progress

05-13-2011 12:54 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

Well, it looks like help is on its way. After Verna’s suggestion of trying Avon Skin So Soft to combat the black flies, I also did some reading on the subject and found that many of the other commercial brands of insect repellent used basically the same formula. I remembered that I had received a gift set of SSS for Christmas and dug it out to see what I had. Although I didn’t have the oil in the traditional form, there was a tube of gel oil. I thought I would experiment to se...

General thoughts on life and woodworking #5: The most important project of my life

05-11-2011 09:00 PM by Jack_T | 18 comments »

The project is not made of exotic wood. It is not a complicated piece of furniture. It does not have sophisticated joinery. It is finished only with house paint. Normally, I would consider a project like this to be a simple throw away project made for the fun of it but not very important at all. This time was very different though. It would be turn out to be the most important project of my life. The project was commissioned by my six year old daughter, Jacqueline. She came t...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #336: Another Pull Toy Replica

05-11-2011 01:03 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 8 comments »

I can’t remember when I last felt so good about things. I have always loved what I do, but it just seems like things are really falling into place and it is truly a pleasure to get up every morning to work. I don’t know if it is the new tools or my friends or being organized or just being at a good place in my life that makes it so enjoyable. Perhaps it is because I am doing what I have always wanted to do. It feels so wonderful being able to draw and make fun things and be cr...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #335: "I See the Light!"

05-10-2011 01:01 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

I was very excited when I got to the post office yesterday and found that the light for my new saw had arrived. It was supposed to be sent to New York last month and either it got lost (gotta love the post office!) or just plain didn’t go out. In any case, I needed to reorder it and it has finally arrive. In all the years I have been scroll sawing, I have never had a “proper” light. At one time I had the swing arm type of desk light, but I found that the vibration from...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #334: Life is GOOD!

05-09-2011 01:21 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

Did you ever have a day when you just can’t wait to get up and out of bed and get going? I love those days and today was one of them. Even though it is raining out, I can already feel that it going to be a good one. Yesterday turned out to be a wonderful day too. After writing my blog here, I really got going and decided to attack my paperwork. The pile was sizable, as it not only contained the regular stuff that I had accumulated in the last two months, but also all the receipts...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #333: The Plan

05-08-2011 01:13 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 7 comments »

I don’t feel as if I have anything exciting to write about today. I am not sure if that is a good thing or a bad thing. It seems that I am somewhat in between projects and even though I am in the process of creating new things, I am at a point where things are partially done and not at a point where I am ready to share them with you. I am feeling on edge a bit because I still feel a bit disorganized and need to get a handle on things so that I can move ahead. There are perhaps too m...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #331: Still Deciding

05-06-2011 12:15 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

I want to start off thanking you for sharing your experiences on Etsy yesterday. I received several messages, as well as what was posted here and I am still deciding what I am going to do. One thing that I noticed on Etsy is that they discourage you from posting a link to your own website (unless i am reading it wrong.) If that is the case, then I don’t think I am going to do anything there. They say it would display “avoidance of fees” but I don’t feel that would ...
