My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #581: Have a Heart!

01-12-2012 02:01 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 9 comments »

I was gone much of yesterday, but I did manage to finish up my ornaments when I got home. I suppose that I was just too excited to leave them until the next day and couldn’t wait to see how they came out. I am really pleased with them and I hope that everyone else likes them too. After doing a final sanding on them, I dipped them in my usual mineral oil. I am finding this as my favorite method for finishing up fretwork and small pieces like this. It is quick and easy and doesn...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #865: New Dimensional Ornaments!

11-04-2012 12:01 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 17 comments »

Today is one of my favorite days of the year. Those of you who read know that I frequently wish that my days had more hours in them, and today is the one day of the year that my wish actually comes true. A 25 hour day! Now how I am going to use that extra hour is hard to decide. There are so many wonderful directions that I am heading in right now that I could choose from a variety of tasks. Yesterday was a very productive and happy day for me. All week I was working on a new ornament ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #890: Exchanging

11-29-2012 01:06 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

I have written about this before, and I probably will again. I once again participated in an ornament exchange that was set up by the scrollers on Steve Good’s forum. It is an event that I look forward to every year, as it gives me a chance to experience not only the work of other scrollers, but also enjoy the friendship and sharing that it entails. I love exchanges. I think that it is a great way to learn about fellow crafts people and own a little piece of something created by the...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #608: Please, Please Me

02-09-2012 11:59 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 11 comments »

I made a great deal of progress yesterday cutting out the little shamrocks. I had some things to do in the morning and didn’t wind up really starting to set up things until just after lunch, so I got a later start than I intended. Still, I was able to cut out all 15 pieces (double stacked) and at least finish with that for the day. I didn’t get to sanding them and oiling them, but I will be doing that today, as well as cutting out the 15 smaller versions which can be used for p...

Segmented Christmas Tree Ornament

12-12-2009 07:04 PM by darryl | 11 comments »

After completing the Segmented Vessel, I decided I’d make the segments on my next piece a little thinner than the 3/4” previously used. Since we are all in the Christmas spirit, I thought I’d make a new ornament for our tree this year. The segments in this piece are 1/4” thick, and this piece includes a total of 92 segments. Here’s the before picture of the ornament blank glued up on the lathe. After turning, sanding and the first coat of wipeon polyurethan...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #611: Wrapping Things Up

02-12-2012 11:34 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 15 comments »

It snowed last night. Not quite the storm that they were predicting, but then again it never seems to be. I think that is how we become complacent and then when we are least expecting it we get hit. I can’t really tell how much yet because it is still dark out, but everything is white and I haven’t heard the scraping of the plows against the pavement yet. So I expect it isn’t too much. I am thinking that I would like to take a walk in the woods today. I haven’t d...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #580: The Spice of Life

01-11-2012 01:19 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 7 comments »

Those of you who know me well know that I am not a ‘random’ type of person. I generally like to keep everything pretty organized and when I do something, it is done systematically and orderly. I find that as my way to keep my busy life under control. I have always been somewhat like that. With that said, I realize that doing an assignment or project such as the one I am working on now is something if a stretch for me. It isn’t often that I do something that is on this...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #607: "And Now For Something Completely Different"

02-08-2012 11:40 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 10 comments »

For some strange reason, yesterday I just decided to switch gears. I still have the final proof reading of the boot pattern to do, but I wanted to get away from it for a day and move on to something else. Besides, we are looking at a site update by the weekend and I wanted to have something new up there for March that others will also like to do. So I refocused. And here is what I came up with: Well . . . part of it anyway. You didn’t really think that I was going to show ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #867: Pretty as a Picture

11-06-2012 12:22 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

One thing that I love about doing design work is that there are so many aspects of the process to consider. In addition to drawing the patterns on the computer, the projects need to be cut, assembled and finished in order to make sure that everything was done properly. Once that is finished, the actual instructional pattern packets need to be created, which include clear and concise directions on how others can replicate the project easily. This often includes not only step-by-step photogra...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #503: New Ornaments!

10-26-2011 11:15 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

Yesterday was an extremely productive day and I finished both my order for the large snowflake and also my new ornaments. It felt good to get so much accomplished. I don’t think I worked harder than I do on most days, but I actually reached the finish line on two things at almost the same time so there is a great feeling of accomplishment. Finishing up the snowflake puzzle wasn’t bad at all. I actually made two of them so one is sitting here on the shelf if anyone else decid...
