My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #630: Christmas in March!

03-02-2012 11:27 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

I seemed to have a pretty decent day yesterday work-wise. I did the final drawing and tweaking on the new project that I am working on. This one I will be doing for my own site and not selling off to the magazine. I also got the entire thing cut out and I hope to get all the finishing and assembly done today. So far it is cute, and I am happy with it. It will be a nice and quick project that will also be fun. Keith is working on some outstanding snowflake ornaments and they are really...

ScrollSaw Information and Resources #24: Next Steps - or which way is up

02-21-2012 03:18 PM by jerrells | 3 comments »

OK scrollers – I have been scrolling for about two years and have posted many projects. What is next on the business plan. This is the question I can’t seem to answer. What way do you take you hobby/ part time business and still make it FUN. I have kinda been in a lull since Christmas. I have done many craft shows and they seem fun and I do sell well at them but they seem few at this time of the year. I would love to have one about every six weeks to two months but that is not ...

ScrollSaw Information and Resources #23: Sound Level Reduction

01-26-2012 02:42 AM by jerrells | 7 comments »

OK Scrollers, and anyone else, I need some help and information. I went to see an ENT for one of those check up things. After a lot of questions he was none too happy that I scrollsaw or anything else related to power tools. Now I use a DeWalt (52DB there) and a bucket head vac. but I can find its noise rating. I have been wearing the over the head earmuffs (with a 25DB noise reduction rating). Today after a lot of research I purchase some of the foam inserts as a second level of protection. ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #592: Done. (complete. through. ended. ready. finished)

01-24-2012 01:40 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 9 comments »

I had a rough night last night. For some reason I couldn’t really sleep. I think it was because I was thinking about packaging things up and calling for the parcel to be picked up by Purolator to go on its way. For those of you who haven’t been following along, the last week was a bit of a struggle for me. I am not sure why, but finishing up this project took more effort than it should have. Perhaps I am a just a bit tired or out of sorts. I was up several times during t...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #591: One More Day

01-23-2012 01:54 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

Well, it wasn’t because of lack of effort that I didn’t finish yesterday. With looking ahead at what I need to accomplish today to finish, I think it was much more my usual nemesis – underestimation – that is to blame. It is funny how I always do this. Perhaps it is because of my optimistic ‘pink cloud’ thinking that I choose to embrace. I really and truly try to be realistic with my time lines, but it is yet to be an ability that I have mastered. I ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #590: Getting to the Finish Line

01-22-2012 02:41 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 9 comments »

Did you ever have one of those projects that seems to go on and on (and on) and you find yourself wondering if you will ever be finished with it? I am afraid that is what I have been going through with the project that I am currently working on (the calendar topper). Perhaps it is because it has been a three part series and I started working on it in September that it seems like it is never ending. Now you all know that it hasn’t been all I have been working on, or even the main fo...

Farm - barn - toy

I have a dream … since I was as small girl I wanted a farm … never got one.Many years later my son received one for St Nicolas (in Belgium), he was 1 year old and played again and again … for years. Now the small plastic farm is resting in the attic like a treasure ! Few days ago I was asked by friends if I could make one big wooden farm box including “everything” ... for their little son.Remembering by son’s smile and hours of happines I said YES : a ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #587: One More Day of Drawing . . .

01-19-2012 02:47 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

Even though I spent most of the day yesterday drawing, I am still not finished with the last sets of designs for the calendar. I really wanted to be, but it just didn’t happen. I took time choosing my subjects and it wasn’t as easy as I initially would have thought. I still have the months of November and December to finish up and I hope to do so today. Sometimes when I have too many choices it gives me more of a problem then when I am not sure what I will be doing. With so ...

Name plate for a toolbox...

01-19-2012 05:43 AM by Nighthawk | 2 comments »

Okay so it’s not a woodworking tool box, but it does have a wooden scroll saw nametag. The story goes like this, Hayden (or is online name Hayd3n) a good friend who has helped me on a few projects (coffin , speakers for example) and will be helping on a few more soon like a couple of bed end trunks. He has also helps me organise the basement a little, and the ongoing joke is he is building his shop in my basement… Anyway, he is young and doesn’t have a lot of tools of hi...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #586: Still Drawing

01-18-2012 02:11 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

I am still working on drawing up the new sets for the calendar project. I spent the majority of the day doing as much and I am making good progress. Hopefully, I can finish up today and then tomorrow will be a day of cutting the pieces out and then on to writing the instructions. I made a little sample picture to show you: Today is just one of those days that I am short on words. I don’t know if that is a bad thing, or a good thing. I am quite focused on completing this assig...
