My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #492: Learning from Mistakes and Practice

10-15-2011 12:35 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 14 comments »

Now that feels much better! What a difference it is to wake up to a clean work environment. It isn’t as if it was a pigsty, but I will admit that there was plenty of clutter and odds and ends like papers and stuff on the counters and the table and on my desk. I spent a good part of yesterday going through things and sorting and organizing and throwing things out. Even some of my supply closets and drawers, although I still need to do the ‘big sort’ with my craft suppli...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #491: Time Out for Organization

10-14-2011 11:55 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

Today is what I am going to call a day to tie up loose ends. I get those every once in a while – usually in between projects where it seems that everything is everywhere and I just need a day to put everything away and reorganize it all and get things tidied up. As I look around my place here, there seems to be stuff scattered here and there and it can be mighty annoying and counter-productive for me to work with things like this. I really don’t like clutter, and with living ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #490: My Calendar Topper

10-13-2011 01:45 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 14 comments »

I finished up on the calendar yesterday and I am pretty happy with it. I think it is a fun project and will make a nice series. I needed to take the pictures this morning because everything was drying and I will have it ready to send out tomorrow. The pictures are not exactly what I wanted, but it was still dark out when I took them. I am going to re-take them later on today and get better ones, but for here they will at least give you the idea of what I am doing. Each month will have t...

ScrollSaw Information and Resources #16: Going to do the Consignment Store

10-13-2011 04:09 AM by jerrells | 2 comments »

I have been asking questions and seeking information about Consignment store opportunities both in my BLOG and through other sources. As I described I ran across a Consignment store opportunity that seems like the perfect starting point. The basic details are. 1. You lease store shelf/floor, wall space by the foot. A three foot shelf will run me about $20 per month.2. I set the selling price of all items I have in the store. I also place price tags on all items per store instructions.3. Th...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #489: Using Mistakes as Tools for Learning

10-12-2011 12:34 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

I never said I was the brightest bulb in the box. I do however find it sometimes amazing how I can find new and exciting ways to make mistakes. I can be pretty innovative at that. That should count for something, shouldn’t it? Yesterday I did get to cut out all the pieces for my new calendar project. I really think it is going to be cool. This project is going to be one that will be sent to the magazine for publication and I really wanted to do a good job on it. In fact, I am ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #488: A Very Full Day

10-11-2011 12:39 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 0 comments »

There are so many things to be grateful for. When I look around and see the big picture of my life, I understand how very fortunate I am to have so many good things. I do realize this all the time and really don’t take anything for granted. My life hasn’t always been like this and I have memories in the not-so-distant past of when things were troubled and I had much to worry about. Not only for myself, but for those who I loved the most. Everyone goes through difficult times...

Hillsboro Arts and Craft Fair

10-10-2011 05:53 PM by scrollingmom | 2 comments »

A friend and I went to a craft fair located in Hillboro Kansas. Both of us have our wares in a store in Cottonwood Falls, Kansas called Prairie PastTimes. Its a store that feaures all things handmade in the Flinthills. Well, she makes jewerly and I do scrolling. So we thought we would check out what the craft fair was making and what was selling. A little bit about the craftfair; it is probably one of the biggest in Kansas, don’t know that for sure. I haven’t read what th...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #487: Eating and Working (and Eating More!)

10-10-2011 11:33 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 11 comments »

Well, I have one turkey dinner down and two to go! (One isn’t until the end of November though, so it gives me time to recover) It was a great one though, and everything was simply yummy. I didn’t stuff myself (too much) although by the end of the meal I couldn’t manage to finish my piece of pumpkin cake with dark chocolate ganache filling. It was really a crime but I had to toss the rest of it out. I could eat no more. I remember when I was young and my mother used ...

The Apprentice #1: Jake's First Scrollsaw Project

10-09-2011 04:15 PM by topcat | 5 comments »

This past Friday was one of my more proud moments. My 8 year old son was finally mature enough to sit still long enough to get a tool tutorial from his old man. He has been wanting to use my saws. Seems he has all of these great ideas floating around in his head . . . wonder where he gets that from. So, he came up with a pattern which I helped him attach to a piece of 1/4” plywood. After the tutorial, away he went. Here’s the action; From October 9, 2011 . . . and the result. From...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #486: Trial and Error

10-09-2011 12:55 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

Yesterday was a day filled with fun and also some frustrations. Just because I have been designing for a long time doesn’t mean that I don’t make mistakes and encounter obstacles. There is no guarantee that things are going to work right every time. Even when I really thought I had everything covered. I worked on my project for the magazine for a while yesterday. This was the one that I was talking about last week, that I have been thinking about and trying to come up with ...
