My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #813: Project #2 Done!

09-10-2012 11:05 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

This one is going to have to be quick. I had some things I needed to get done this morning and I am running a bit behind. Plus, with the handicap of Pancakes on my lap, it makes it hard to type fast. I wanted to show the pictures of the second project of this group today. I really think it came out cool and I was pretty happy with the results. This one was the word “Boo!” spelled out in some Gothic type lettering along with two creepy pumpkins. I cut these letters from ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #938: Pushing the Pile

01-20-2013 12:13 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 11 comments »

Yesterday I had some unexpected things thrown my way. For some reason, my body decided to show its age in a somewhat nasty way. While getting up, it seems that something went awry with one side of my lower back, causing me a great deal of discomfort. There was no warning with this and I was just standing up when it happened. I didn’t lift anything heavy and I was fresh out of the shower, so my muscles were warm. I am completely confuzzled as to how this occurred, and I wouldn’t...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1419: New Patterns Up on Our Site

10-09-2014 12:03 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

Today's blog will just be a short announcement that all the new patterns are available on our site. I have received lots of emails from those of you asking when they would be ready, and they all are at this time. We added several new patterns to the site and we are very proud of them. There are some holiday patterns, as well as some for general occasions. Keith's SLDK396 Self-Framing Love Always plaque pattern would be great for a wedding gift, anniversary, or any time you just w...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1094: Damask Pattern Finished

08-02-2013 10:59 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 9 comments »

I was pretty happy yesterday. I actually set some goals and stuck tot them and I got everything accomplished that I set out to do. By the time I was finished it was about 10pm. That left just enough time for me to unwind a bit and visit with my friends online before heading off to bed. I know that every day can’t be like that, but once in a while it is nice to know that it can work. The one thing that is the top of my list that I did accomplish was creating the pattern for the trio ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1306: Some Woodworking Designs for Newer Scrollers

05-01-2014 11:31 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

It always feels so good when I finish accomplishing my deadlines.  Whether self-imposed or work that I have to get done for others, I try to treat them with equal importance and prioritize them accordingly. Lately it seems that I have been spinning many different plates.  I know some of you who know me don't see that as being very unusual – and it reality it is not – but sometimes it just kind of gets to me when there isn't a break for a while.  I think...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1173: New Projects Completed! Time To Write Pattern Packets!

11-23-2013 11:54 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

I will get right down to business this morning because I have a LOT that I want to accomplish today! I pretty much finished up the new ornaments and today I need to write instructions for the pattern packet, as well as the ornaments that I showed earlier this week and the “Gloria” candle tray that was featured in the holiday issue of Scrollsaw Woodworks and Crafts magazine so I can get everything on the website and do the site update. Here are pictures of the “Gloria&#...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #634: Many Directions

03-06-2012 11:46 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 8 comments »

One thing about doing the variety of things that I do, I never really run out of new ideas. I enjoy the thought of moving from one style to another and while sometimes it can be a bit overwhelming, for the most part it keeps me longing to work and looking forward to each day and creating something new. The kitty chalkboard is out the door and on its way to the magazine now. I don’t know why getting things packed up and out the door seems to be so much of a chore, but there are time...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1248: Adding Some Color to those Dull Winter Days

02-17-2014 01:17 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

Most of you know that I am addicted to color. I love so many different color palettes and combinations that it is hard to pick a favorite. I suppose it depends on what mood I am in, but I love designing using beautiful ranges of colors from soft pastels to colors with great intensity. It is part of the fun of being a designer. Last week I finished a little candle tray/mat project for the upcoming Easter season. In it I used very soft pastels with just a splash of deep pink to add some...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #814: If First You Don't Succeed

09-11-2012 10:54 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 1 comment »

Lately, I have so much that I want to get done and it seems like I have little time to do things. I have a list of ideas a mile long and during the time it takes to check off one thing, there are probably two or three more that I have added to the bottom of it. Yesterday I worked on the third set of stand-up ghost word pieces. I had hopes of finishing them up yesterday. But in the process of getting things done, I went ahead too quickly and ruined the paint on one of them and had to rem...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1012: Catching Up

04-17-2013 10:32 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

I finally feel that I am getting caught up with things. My little crow and cart is all packed up and soon will be on its way to the offices of Creative Woodworks and Crafts magazine in New Jersey for the final photographs for the project article. I really hate to see him go, but I know that he will be back one day and I will feel just as excited about him as I did the other day when he was completed. I spent the past two days working on the pieces for another article that I am doing for ...
