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...

Christmas Ornament

11-15-2015 05:27 PM by PCorl | 0 comments »

With the holiday season approaching I decided to make a Christmas Ornament on the scroll saw. I downloaded a pattern from Steve Good’s site (www.scrollsawworkshop.blogspot.com) and went to work. Here is a link to the video that I made: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oWyIuk1K5PA hope you enjoy the video and thanks for watching.

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1652: Busy as an Elf

11-12-2015 01:35 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 0 comments »

Today's post will be a bit short. While I am working hard on new designs, there still isn't much that I can show you or even tease you with. I did get some wood cutting done yesterday and filled some orders, and I was planning and drawing my new designs in between. I feel as if I am skipping blogging a bit more than normal. Again, this isn't because I am not making things, but more so just the opposite. Between email, posting orders, cutting, painting and drawing, the days ar...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1650: Monday's Blog - Take 2

11-10-2015 12:44 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 8 comments »

Yesterday I had a blog all written and ready to publish. It was a quarter of nine my time and I was feeling good because I usually post by about nine fifteen. I was ahead of the game and it was a great way to start off my Monday. Then in the blink of an eye – POOF!!!! Our power went off. It remained off for nearly five hours. I knew the post was lost. I do pretty well in power outages here. They don't happen frequently (usually less than once a year) but on a bright, sunny...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1649: Busy Work

11-06-2015 11:30 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

Yesterday was another busy day. I had so many parcels to package up and ship out that it took me most of the day to get everything done. I was fortunate to get to the post office by 4pm, as they closed at 5 and it took them nearly an hour just to process all the parcels. It was a good day. I am really pleased at the response to my little pumpkin surface. (SLDPK127 on my site) Talk about an unexpected response! I have another fairly large batch to cut again over the weekend as well. It...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1648: NOW I Can Call it Finished!

11-05-2015 01:08 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

These last few days have been both busy and fun. I am so thrilled at all the positive responses that I had regarding my little pumpkin shaped plaques. Before I could even finish them, I had lots and lots of orders for the surfaces. Many people ordered just one or two, as they were planning to paint their own designs on them. It felt good to have something that was liked so much by so many. I am really pleased. Needless to say, I have been quite busy these past couple of days. I hadn'...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1646: November, It Is!

11-02-2015 01:11 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

Yes – we are already into month 11 of the year.  How the heck did that happen? It seemed like yesterday that we were taking pictures of the nearly 4 feet of snow that had accumulated. Wow! How quickly this year has passed!But as I was outside the other day, on an overcast autumn afternoon, I couldn't help but notice the beauty. not only were the trees still half-filled with warm colored leaves, but the other plants and vegetation had also taken on deep, warm color. The air was ...
