My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1095: The Holiday Issue of Creative Woodworks and Crafts is Out!

08-03-2013 12:01 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 11 comments »

Good day to you all! I spent the much of the day yesterday getting things lined up for my next set of patterns. Hopefully, my new design will be put up on the site later on today, although I don’t think we will do another newsletter just yet. Keith has some new things that he is working on as well and we would like to wait until we have a few things to talk about before sending a newsletter. We try not to send more than two per month, as we don’t want to be bothersome to our cus...

This would make a great stocking stuffer. EDIT: I have fixed the wobbling problem. Check out tomorrows Second Slice to find out what I did wrong and how I fixed it.

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #781: The Crackle Finish Video is Posted

08-06-2012 11:38 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

After showing the snowmen ornaments in which I had used the crackle finish, I had many people write and ask me questions about the product. I thought it would be a good time to try out the new camera and make a video showing how to apply the product. Things went fairly well, but as with learning anything new, there are a couple of ‘glitches’ that I had to deal with. I did a little better with the filming itself, although at the end of the video, I accidentally dropped the hea...

This is the picture of me presenting a gift of Appreciation to the Sussex County Council, DE this morning Dec 7, 2010 for their contribution of $500.00 for our toy making outreach to the children of Sussex County.

The Mason-Dixon Woodworkers group of Delmar presented Sussex County Council with a 1920s hand-carved REO Speed Wagon, a token of appreciation, at the Tuesday, Dec. 7, 2010, meeting. Karson Morrison of the group thanked County Council...

Ghosts of Christmas Future #4: the ornaments

12-03-2010 06:40 AM by scottb | 4 comments »

ok, so 87 days ago I worked out (and blogged) the plan, and workflow to knock off a series of 100 similar turned ornaments. Similar in size and shape, but with a world of variety in the woods used. Rather than attempt another 30 projects in 30 days, 100 of the same seemed similarly challenging, but reasonable enough. I’d only really need to turn 3 a day for a month, plus a couple more on the weekends and I’d be all set. As I’ve previously mentioned, it’s the photogr...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1188: Another Update to Our Site!

12-10-2013 12:30 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

Even though Keith and I usually don’t feel like we are adding a lot of new patterns, it seems that our product line is growing by leaps and bounds. Our “loose” goal is to put out a newsletter about twice a month introducing our new designs and letting people know what we are up to and while I thought that would be something that would be difficult to maintain, I find that the newsletter are never short of new items or announcements. I guess we are both pretty busy. I rea...

Mason Dixon Toy Making 2011

02-17-2011 05:28 AM by Karson | 14 comments »

I was chatting in a message to A1Jim and telling about the work that I did today and I got to thinking about something that has come up in making our toys. The newspaper article this year brought a new person who wanted to volunteer on helping make toys. But, he has a full time job and is not retired so he wanted to do it at his home in nights and weekends. So it was agreed that he would help up make our Lincoln Log Cabin toy. This requires about 5,000 ft of 3/4 square stock. We are mak...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1138: Site Update Complete!

09-27-2013 11:07 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

What a busy day yesterday was again! Once again, the week just flew by and here we are looking at Friday again already. I try to take time to enjoy these autumn days, but with so much to do, I seem to get wrapped up in things and before I know it, the day is over. As I look back though, I did get a lot of things done. I finished putting together my last packet for the new site update and also was able to write the newsletter and get it out by late afternoon. Writing the newsletter is co...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #887: What Was I Thinking?

11-26-2012 12:38 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 11 comments »

Any of you who know me know that I tend to be an optimist at times. You also know that I sometimes underestimate the time it takes me to do something. Well it seems that yesterday my optimism collided with my underestimation and I made the mistake of saying that my sled ornaments would be completed today. Oh, they are cut and sanded. Everything came out really nice I thought and worked like it should. As a matter of fact, I found a great deal of pleasure in cutting these ornaments out. Wh...

Online Scroll Saw Class - Incredibly Fun Adventures in Scroll Sawing #12: "Reindeer Games" Layered Ornaments Part 2

07-29-2012 05:00 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 7 comments »

Ok! So I dropped the ball a little! I honestly forgot that I was posting these videos here in the class. I suppose that there was a bit too much going on, and then I took a short holiday and it completely slipped my mind. I suppose I don’t earn the prize as the smartest kitten in the litter, do I? But hopefully, you will all let bygones be bygones and we can continue on from here in our little adventure. Let’s see . . . where were we? We had our pattern applied t...
