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...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1391: Progress

08-29-2014 11:26 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

I thought I did pretty well yesterday. Besides getting a lot of little things done, I made pretty good progress on my new sleigh. I found a really nice piece of cherry to cut the main part of the sleigh, and I am going to use walnut for the runners. I think that the contrast will look good. By the time I finished all the drawing up and got everything prepped for cutting and did all my errands, it was later in the afternoon. Sometimes just 'every day stuff' takes a little time to ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1395: Good Things Are Worth the Wait

09-03-2014 11:33 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

I will keep things short here today because I have writing to do. I know I promised that the reindeer and sleigh pattern would be ready today, and it may be later on, but I probably won't really have everything done, including the site update, until tomorrow (Thursday). Sometimes things just take longer than expected. I will say though that the pattern will really be a nice one. I spent the day yesterday working on the 26 step-by-step photos that I will include with it. That is ...

Sleepydogs Blog #4: World Scroll Saw Expo Parts 1 and 2

07-14-2010 11:36 PM by joey | 2 comments »

I got to go to the World Scroll Saw Expo last weekend in Wilmington Ohio, Which is my own back yard, since I only live thirteen miles from Wilmington. The Expo was cool to say the lease and really got me excited to play with my scroll saw agian. I only have a cheap saw but it does what I ask it to do, but if I ever really want to get into some of the kind of work that these folks do I might have to re-think that! There is three parts to my blog post the first post is just pictures from the sh...

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 ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #743: One Step Forward . . .

06-25-2012 12:13 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 9 comments »

Two steps back. Well, you all probably have heard the saying. While we were forging ahead yesterday, I was finishing the last of my printing when I came across an error. I was doing the final proof reading for the last of the patterns before I printed out 150 copies and I was checking the item numbers of the DecoArt colors that I used for the project. I was sitting here at the computer and thought it would be easy just to type the number in the search box at the DecoArt website to make ...

ScrollSaw Information and Resources #19: Arts and Crafts Items - What Sells

10-29-2011 09:23 PM by jerrells | 2 comments »

Hello to all Arts and Crafts woodworkers. but aren’t we all. I wish to pose a question that has no real answer. I currently sell arts and crafts type woodworking via word-of-mouth, friend to friend, advertising by posting pictures on Lumberjocks and Facebook (many friends know about these sites), and in a consignment store (this being just a week old). Now I must clarify that the scrollsaw is my primary tool of use in this operation. My question is what sells well for you, Of course this t...

ScrollSaw Information and Resources #44: I Love Detailed Fretwork - BUT !!

12-20-2012 01:27 PM by jerrells | 5 comments »

I love to do detailed fretwork. The more detailed the better. However that don’t, or is not, paying the bills. Sales of those products at the price I charge, which is getting lower and lower, Just does not seem to be worth the time. Therefore for the first part of the year I am turning to toys. Not the I really like doing them or that they are any more worth the time and effort. All the painting that needs to be done are a pain in the backside. I am or have been in three different...

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...
