My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1793: A Lesson from "Pancakes"

10-24-2016 01:28 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 1 comment »

When last I left you on Friday, I had began a new artistic adventure. For my first time ever, I was using a new medium (New to me, that is!) in drawing with pastel pencils and blocks. I had seen a video from the very talented wildlife artist, Jason Morgan, in which he shared his 'discovery' of the joys of using "Pastelmat" pastel paper by Clairfontaine to draw with. He mentioned that it changed his entire perspective on pastel drawing. I was intrigued. I just so happene...

Shop stuff #60: Starting on the coffee table

10-23-2016 02:40 PM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

Now that I have made the track for the circular saw, and got the planer tuned up, I can actually start building the coffee table that I promised my wife for her birthday back in January. I am taking a bit of a different tack on this series of videos by making them shorter. I think that will make viewing them easier. Most of my build videos I have made longer because I thought I would lose continuity but I think they may be a bit long for viewing. This series I am going to try to keep each...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1792: Finished the Pumpkin and Started Something New

10-21-2016 02:10 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

It is already past my 'normal blog time' this morning, so I will get right down to business. I am figuring out that sometimes we need to sacrifice chit-chat for quality content. While I like to sit and muse about the day, my plans and life in general with you all, I am finding that sometimes it is best if I just get to what I want to do and talk about it a little less. The photos speak for themselves. My routine has changed somewhat lately and I have been trying to hit the gym pr...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1791: It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like (Kim) Christmas

10-20-2016 01:27 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

I have always been one of those designers that loves to work on designs from others that I admire. I can't help it. I see something that someone else creates that 'speaks to me' and I can't help but try to make the time to create it. I look at it as helping support the industry that I love so much. It also gives my brain a rest and keeps me feeling like I am having fun. After all – I believe that enjoying what I am doing is linked in a big part to the amount of success t...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1790: #1790 On the Ninth Day of Christmas . . .

10-18-2016 01:02 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 0 comments »

Yesterday was a good day in many respects. Not only did I feel as if I got a bit caught up with things, but I was feeling a bit more like myself again. (My productive self, that is!)  I think the two days away really did me a world of good. Not only was in inspired by seeing so much creativity and beauty, but I got a chance to not think about the business, my computer or any of my day-to-day tasks for a short time. While I missed having Keith travel with me, it was a comfort knowing that...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1789: Back From My Break

10-17-2016 02:59 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

“How can you miss me if I don’t go away?” It’s one of those questions that may seem to state the obvious, but few seem to get it. As many of you that follow me know, I have been going through a kind of ‘transition’ all summer long. I have been blogging for what I think may be six years already (I truly lost count) and never mind sharing my creative adventures with you all. (Some personal ones as well!) You have been just as inspirational to me as you ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1788: Catching Up

10-13-2016 12:24 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

It is hard to believe that we are already nearly halfway through with the month of October. I don't know if it is because I have been so busy, or because it is my favorite month of the year, but the days just seem to pass by even more quickly than usual and before we know it, winter will be here. I never really mind winter. I don't mind any of the seasons really. If I had a favorite it would be autumn though, with its crisp mornings, cool days and sometimes cold evenings. The col...

I just posted a new blog post about why one would use paste wax, lear or colored, on a project. A few good A-B photos. Take a look and let me know what you think, and whether or not you like to use paste wax.
