My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1003: Production Cutting

04-06-2013 11:41 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 8 comments »

Well, guys and girls – I can tell you already that this is going to be a short blog today. Every time I do something here on Lumberjocks (add a photo, comment or blog entry) it is taking me about five minutes for it to do so. I am happy that I don’t have a lot of pictures to share today. There are days the site just gets like that, and today I have too much to do to wait for it to “wake up!” :) Yesterday I switched gears and Keith and I did some of the ‘prod...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1480: If First You Don't Succeed . . .

01-21-2015 01:21 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 8 comments »

I always like sharing my triumphs here on the blog. It feels great to accomplish something positive and be able to share it with you all, my readers. But sometimes when I do something, it doesn't work out exactly as I have planned. (I know! Hard to believe, right???) I never mind telling you all about those times either though because I really want people to understand that being successful does NOT mean having everything work out perfectly every time. Anyone who tells you different is ly...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #990: Writing Step-by-Step Instructions

03-22-2013 11:16 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 8 comments »

I spent the day yesterday sorting through bunnies and taking photographs for the MUD bunny pattern packet. In all, I had made 6 sets of 10 bunnies. I made a couple of extra sets because I wanted to add them to my “All Season Tree” for the spring months. As much as I loved the look of the polar bears and penguins and the soft ice blue beads, I knew it was time to change over and have some spring and summer items on it. I suppose that is part of the fun of having a tree up all...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1482: Better Late than Never

01-24-2015 02:57 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

I am checking in a little late today because yesterday the day got away from me and I was doing the final editing and proofreading on my SLD489 Layered Heart Damask Box with Monogram pattern. I actually finished everything up early this morning, and I sent all the orders out from last night for the patterns. If you ordered one and I missed you, please let me know and I will get it to you right away. :)We finished our site update yesterday. And in addition to the pattern for the above desig...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1213: And Then There Were Five . . .

01-08-2014 11:50 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

I frequently hear from my partner Keith that I create projects and then “make work” for myself. He says this because I am not really satisfied with creating one version of a project. If I envision the projects several different ways, I can’t help myself but to make them all. I know that isn’t the most efficient way to work, but it is part of me that can’t be helped. I figure if I can picture it several different ways, then others will appreciate having the ch...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1549: Carousel Kit is Posted on the Website

05-07-2015 10:26 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

Are you all tired of reading about this project yet?  I hope not. It is just been that it has really kind of consumed my life these past couple of weeks and because of that, I have had little else to write about. But I am getting to the end of my journey with this and soon will be moving on to other new things. I really appreciate all the nice comments and encouragement from everyone. When you work from home, outside feedback is really important – especially on the days when things...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #155: Time to Take a Stand

11-05-2010 10:00 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

I am writing this blog last night because we decided to high tail it to Halifax in the morning for probably our last trip into the city before winter hits. Today, we went to a new wood place that our friend Bernie recommended today and got some incredibly low priced and high quality hard woods. Among our finds were some nice ash at $2.00 per board foot, some flaming birch for $3.00 per board foot and some curly maple which was also only $3.00 per board foot. We didn’t get a lot bec...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1706: Wearing my Woodworking Hat

03-03-2016 01:50 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

Oh – I seem to be so late at getting to my blogs these days! I find that I wind up spending the mornings visiting my artistic friends' pages and seeing what they posted through the night. That usually takes me away to other places and gives me MORE ideas of new things to create. It is a vicious circle! ;) I spent the day yesterday finishing up drawing my new patterns for the scroll saw projects I am making and I actually got MOST of them cut out. With all the errands and stuff ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1008: Butterflies and Posies

04-12-2013 11:45 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 21 comments »

Today I have more pictures than I will post. Little by little everything is coming together and I keep going from one project to the next to the next as things are drying. But things are beginning to come together now and I am seeing the finish line on most of the new things that I am creating. I don’t want to overwhelm everyone, so I will only post pictures of two projects today. The first project that I will show today will be the “Butterflies are Free” candle tray. ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1150: Solving Problems

10-10-2013 10:27 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 7 comments »

Over the past week or so, things here have been moving fast and furious. Keith and I decided we were going to take a two to three week trip to Chicago and see my children (and meet my grand daughter) and stop along the way to visit friends and teach a class or two. I usually am pretty good at planning things, but doing so on the fly has some challenges – both expected and unforeseen – that go with it. There is a lot to coordinate, and that leaves room for things to go wrong. B...
