My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1716: Developing Your Own Sense of Style

04-06-2016 12:06 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 0 comments »

I did a funny thing yesterday. I wrote a blog in the morning and while I posted it on Lumberjocks (the woodworking site) I forgot to post it on my own site, Facebook, or any of the other places that I usually share it.  I suppose I am not quite back to 'normal' after all! I am finding that getting back into stride is a little bit more of a process than I would have thought. It seems that sometimes once our general routine is changed or suspended, it isn't always easy to ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1707: Three New Scroll Saw Designs

03-04-2016 01:31 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

Sometimes I feel as if I have triplets. In a way, I do. (Or even quadruplets or quintuplets – depending on how you look at it!) There are just so many aspects of creating that I enjoy, that it is difficult to stick to only one medium.  I love painting and drawing, but I also love embroidery and woodworking as well. Then there are paper craft and even sewing. I have so many ideas that cross over into other areas that it is hard to decide which ones I want to do at any given moment. ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1699: New Things!

02-19-2016 02:25 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

Today is going to be one of those posts where everything comes together at once. I guess that is typical when I do projects such as what I just completed. It seemed like I was here, there and everywhere and then suddenly – "BAM" (that's for you, Mary! ;) )  everything falls together nicely! Well- sort of, anyway! (If it were only that easy!) We managed to get everything completed and up on the site yesterday. I was proud because I even had my pattern packet ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1698: BUNNIES!!!!

02-17-2016 01:49 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 7 comments »

I took the day off  from 'social media' yesterday for the most part because I was on a roll. I was in the process of finishing up sanding and packaging several wood orders that I wanted to get to the post by the time the truck came for pickup in the afternoon. (Check!)  I was also doing some drawing for a wonderful fellow designer and I wanted to get some things to her so she could get on with her own designing. She is creating some rubber stamps of her drawings and I am hel...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1697: Some Assembly Required

02-15-2016 01:52 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

I feel like I have been on the 'slow train' lately. I am not sure exactly why that is. It seems like I am doing something from the time I get up in the morning until the time I go to sleep. The days are passing much quicker than I would like them to. I look up at the clock and first it it mid-afternoon, then dinner time and then nearly midnight. How can time pass so quickly?  I don't remember it being like that in the past. Perhaps it is that my head is thinking up ...

Dust Collection??

02-02-2016 01:14 PM by Bob Rodrigues | 10 comments »

I’m in the market now for a dust collector. Being married with 2 kids there really isn’t a lot of money I can budget for this at this time. I’ve read the reviews on the Harbor Freight dust collector but I’m wondering If I could get some woodworkers perspective that have this unit. How is it? Does it work well? And is it ok to run pvc or gutter sewerage pipe instead of the metal stove type of piping???? Any info on this topic from all LJ’s would be great.

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1684: You Don't Got a Thing if you Ain't Got That BLING!

01-22-2016 01:58 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

You knew I was going to do it . . . It was just a matter of time. You knew that I wouldn't be able to resist adding some BLING to my new SLD521 Damask Heart Ornaments and SLD522 Heart and Soul Candle Tray.But how could I resist?  The rhinestones I get from Rhinestone Canada are so PRETTY and they are so EASY to apply.  And you can't deny that they make them look better, can you??So I got out my heat wand and rhinestones and went to work . . .All I had to do was place th...

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...
