My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1676: Practice Makes Perfect

01-08-2016 01:43 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 0 comments »

I must admit that I almost didn't post today. I think I am getting 'lazy'. The first week of the new year was quite the whirlwind for me. If things continue this way, I will probably age more than a year by next December. It has been crazy. I am not complaining at all when I say that. In fact, I am thrilled beyond words at how things are turning out. It seems that many of the pieces that were set in place over the years regarding our little business are coming together t...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1674: Getting Back in a Routine

01-06-2016 11:45 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

It isn't as if I really took time 'off', but more that I was focused on some different things. I suppose though without the usual self-imposed deadlines I did slack off a bit. It just didn't feel that way. One would think that taking time off would mean sipping coffee and daydreaming about how I plan to while away the hours of the day . . . Oh!  The romantic visions we have!  But in reality, we all know how quickly those vacation days pass and how when we look b...

I did a video on the build and you can view it on You Tube, here is the link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wtBROCtyd-U Thanks for watching and I hope you enjoy the video and the build.

This is my latest holiday project. A Christmas tree star topper. This is a pretty simple project that can be completed on a scroll saw or a band saw. You can view the video of how I made it on my YouTube channel at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h8F3R4TNnNc I hope you enjoy it.

Inlay card table refurbish #2: So far, so good

11-25-2015 03:02 PM by peterrum | 1 comment »

The curled bits of inlay were carefully removed from the table and put aside. Then I used some water and a steam iron to heat the vacant areas and remove the old glue from the plywood base. I also used the same technique to remove the old glue from the removed inlay pieces. Then I used the steam iron again to steam the individual pieces of inlay an pressed them between two pieces of plywood to get them flat again. This worked quite well. Some of the inlay was so bad I had to replace it s...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1656: Site Update Time!

11-19-2015 01:22 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 1 comment »

As I write today, I promise I will keep things short. (I know – I always say that!) I want to get going on writing our newsletter that we will be sending out later on today. I also want to get to writing on the instructions for the new ornament pattern that will be available to my scroll saw followers later on today. (SLD519 - Damask Locket Ornament Pattern) (The link will work as soon as I have the pattern available on the site.) I have had such a wonderful and positive response regard...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1655: A "Creative" and Positive Lifestyle

11-18-2015 01:20 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 1 comment »

I am often asked how I can keep coming up with so many different creative ideas. While one would think that the answer to this question would be easy, it really is not, and usually I find it a difficult thing to answer. So many things can trigger a design; a distant memory from childhood, the way the light hits the fur on my cat Richard's back (I am looking at that now and noticing how glossy he is), or even a phrase or lyric from a song that we hear in the background of a busy ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1654: Creating as Therapy

11-16-2015 01:36 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 8 comments »

“It’s all in a days’ work.” Well . . . two days I guess. I spent the weekend focusing on what some would consider 'work'. After Friday's events, it was very hard for me to be my usual positive self. I know a lot of you feel the same. How does one cope with the senseless of what had occurred? I just don't understand it. I decided that the best way for me to deal with myself and my own demons was to try to re-focus on something positive. The pa...
