ScrollSaw Information and Resources #32: Selling on the ETSY WEB Site

06-26-2012 02:20 PM by jerrells | 2 comments »

I am considering posting my scrollsaw products on the ETSY WEB Site. Hoave any of you experience with this process and have you had success. The whole idea seems simple. Very low cost to post an item – 20 centrs for four months and then 3.5% or the sale if you make one. Looking at the site stats it seems to get a lot of traffic – 1.3 million page views per month and 3 million items sold. This really seems like a NO-BRAINER. YEs if you really want to be successful you have got t...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1460: Bringing Joy Throughout the Year

12-11-2014 01:39 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

There are so many wonderful reasons that I take the time to write here nearly every day. Of course, in the beginning it was to get our little company more exposure and let more people know we are here. But as time progresses, I have come to realize the many, many other benefits of blogging. Not only have I been able to communicate better with my customers and bring them information regarding a variety of techniques, but I have made some real and lasting friendships as well. That – ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1494: Immersed in Creating

02-10-2015 01:31 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

It is snowing out.Again.I must say that this has been one of the snowiest winters we have had here in Nova Scotia since I came here to live eleven years ago. We already have an average of 2-3 feet on the ground and they are predicting more snow by the weekend. I laugh at the predictions because I think that they are merely guessing. As I checked today's forecast before I began writing this post, it said "Precipitation not expected in the next three hours." Yet as I look out my w...

"Eagle's Realm "Intarsia #2: Just a few trees

05-02-2012 10:08 PM by wdkits1 | 2 comments »

I added a few trees to the background yesterday. Each tree is made from lignum vitae and Peruvian walnut. The lignum is brown now but will turn a vivid green in time. I use CA glue to hold the pieces of the trees together to form a single unit. 100 pieces so far..I have just about finished the design for the background so will be posting more progress pics soon.

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1282: New Ways to have FUN! (Well - new to me anyway!)

04-02-2014 12:57 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

I’ll start off by saying that I am running late today. After getting up at 4am yesterday, I stayed up until after midnight and I guess something had to give because I didn’t get my butt out of bed until nearly 8am this morning! For me, that may as well be noon. But I think I needed the extra rest and we just need to move on from here. I have lots of pictures to show you today. I had a great day yesterday ‘playing’ with a product that is probably not that ‘n...

Desk build #3: Nurse desk: Some glue-up

08-27-2009 07:31 PM by Craftsman on the lake | 4 comments »

RecapMy niece will graduate as a nurse in the near future. She has moved into a new house and asked me for a small desk for her new flat panel iMac. I decided to make an oak desk that would be loosely based on the mission style but with side panels that would reflect her future as an RN. My goal is a small desk 48” x 29” with keyboard drawer and a small drawer. I’ll be trying my first hand made dovetails on scrap and then on to my first dovetailed drawer I put this out here, baring all for...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1445: "Winter is Coming"

11-17-2014 02:04 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 7 comments »

I know those are not words that all of us like hearing. But long before Game of Thrones was ever thought of, Keith used to tease me because I used that phrase frequently this time of year as I purchased extra essentials and prepared for the long, cold days ahead when we may not be able to get to the store. Being prepared is important and coming from Chicago, I was no stranger to sudden snow squalls which left the area crippled for sometimes several days. Now living in rural Nova Scotia, I fee...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1427: Monday, Monday

10-20-2014 11:59 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 9 comments »

Once again we are here on a Monday.I have always loved Monday's, as they represent a fresh start to a new week and the promise of endless possibilities awaiting! I have always viewed Monday with enthusiasm and joy – even when I worked at other jobs outside my home or attended school. I suppose I always felt that every day – no matter what day of the week it was – would only be what we make of it, and I have always chosen to make it the best day I could. I don't see t...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #468: White Rabbit

09-21-2011 01:47 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 7 comments »

I am late today! Not because I was sleeping in or anything like that, but I had some things that I wanted to do before the sun came up and I got side tracked. (Besides, who has time to sleep these days!) The days are certainly full lately. I am taking time to enjoy things though and it isn’t at all bad. I made terrific progress on my second set of bird ornaments yesterday. I finished cutting them out, sanding them and getting a coat of mineral oil on them. They dried overnight ...
