My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1771: Welcome to the "Slow Train"

09-02-2016 01:04 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

I have missed the past few days of blogging, but with good reason. It used to bother me to miss, but after over 1700 posts, I have come to understand that sometimes we need to have to stay off of social media and the computer in general in order to do the things that we want to write about. For me, that is usually doing some type of creating. (Although yesterday I had an eye exam appointment in the morning in Digby, which is about a hour drive from where I live. There was no way that I would ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1770: From Fairy Land to Fantasy

08-30-2016 12:32 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

As an independent, freelance designer, I am fortunate that I am able to vary my designs to my heart's content. While I do have to (somewhat) follow trends, I have the flexibility of creating not only the type of pattern that I would like to see, but also pick the subject, type of media that is used to create it. It is really what makes things fun. But with that fun, also comes responsibility. Many know that 'artists' tend to march to their own drummer. While this creates new ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1769: Continuing the Fairy Tale . . .

08-29-2016 01:06 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

As I awoke this morning and came down the stairs, my cat (Richard) was sitting in my studio room, staring at the floor vent. You all know how cats can be. Just – well – looking . . . (and looking. . .  and looking.)  It kind of creeped me out. The house in which we live is old. My studio is on the first floor, right above the basement. The basement with the stone walls that many of the 150 year old houses in this area have. The basement that had several mouse traps ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1768: Enjoying the Journey

08-26-2016 01:19 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

It is raining today. That is good for us here in Nova Scotia. While it has been a beautiful summer by most people's standards (mine, anyway!) it has been quite dry and the rain is very much appreciated. I supposed that it is appropriate that the piece "Raindrops" by Chopin just came on my headphones. I didn't plan it that way. I am listening to a six hour playlist of 'relaxing classical music' from YouTube. I like that lately in the morning. It is a good way to ...

Just found the site recently, and decided to post a project that I’m working on. Here is my second teardrop camper. It’s for my dad and is all pine and birch (cabinets) inside. We are working toward getting it complete in the next few months, hopefully by fall. My other project and threads can be found at DadRambles.com

Toy Chest Build #2: Making the curves and glue up of the panels

07-07-2016 09:24 PM by 7Footer | 3 comments »

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2yv2FB-qURs Part 1: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PXDdAhpPCok Thanks for watching, I hope you like it! Disclaimer: I’m not sure but I’d imagine there will be some Safety Sally comments about the placement of my stop when I’m cutting the tongues. Please trust me, I’m comfortable and know the limits of my saw and I respect it, in this situation it was acceptable because I was taking off such a small amount of material

Toy Chest Build #1: Laying out the pieces and preparing the rails & stiles

06-29-2016 10:25 PM by 7Footer | 4 comments »

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PXDdAhpPCok I built these toy chests for my Nieces (they aren’t technically my nieces but I consider them family!), we’ve been talking about it with them and their parents for a couple years now, and one of the twins is particularly interested in my woodworking shop. They always have to look for our cat who is scared of everyone and hides out whenever someone knocks on the door, but usually the cat is hiding out in the shop, and the curious kids...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1682: Fun With DecoArt Metallic Lustre Acrylic Wax

01-18-2016 02:13 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

I had a truly busy weekend and I am finally feeling as if I am getting caught up with things. I spent much of Saturday cutting orders and I will be sending all of them out today. Then I can get on to more designing and some other things. I also finished creating the pattern packets for my SLD521 Damask Heart Ornaments and also my SLD522 Heart and Soul Damask Candle Tray that I showed last week. I am really thrilled with these patterns and I love how they came out. But . . . Whi...

50 year old wood stash. What to build?

11-12-2015 03:14 AM by molan | 3 comments »

Last spring I helped clean out the loft in an old barn on my Grandparents farm. the barn is getting old and starting to sag. My Grandpa had a huge stash of lumber up in the loft that he milled himself about 50 years ago when he used to have his own portable saw mill. (Sadly it burned in a forest fire) Most of the lumber was no good anymore and went to the burn pit, but I salvaged a fair pile My Grandpa had no use for the wood anymore and let me take it. I finally got it back to my place th...
