My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #602: Happy Feet

02-03-2012 01:53 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 10 comments »

I had a pretty productive day yesterday. Among other things, I finished up painting my samples of the little witches’ boots. I now have all twelve done and today I will be creating the pattern packet and doing the ‘good photography’ on them. I did take some quick snapshots this morning so I have something to show you all. Here are the pictures of them for now: I didn’t set the light box up or anything like that so the coloring isn’t quite right, bu...

The Puyallup Fair #3: Let the panic set in!

08-29-2011 12:01 AM by GodofBiscuits | 6 comments »

Today was the day! I drove out to Puyallup and dropped off the clock. The stand and clock fit very nicely in the car and had tons of room. Upon arriving at the fair grounds and finding the appropriate area to drop off, I was greeted by one of the volunteers. After some confusion about size maximums (item must not be more than 80 inches over all, width + length) I got everything out of the car and began setting up. Thankfully there were plenty of people on hand to settle the dimension confusio...

Reclaimed Glory #11: Hardwood score - Poplar & Cherry galore

09-25-2013 05:34 PM by palaswood | 12 comments »

I hit the jackpot last night on my salvage rounds. I’ve been frequently checking the discarded cutoffs behind an office furniture maker near my workplace, where I have found small, scrap pieces of cherry (some long, skinny pieces too, but nothing spectacular). Well last night I hit the mother lode (as far as I’m concerned anyway). Mostly poplar and american cherry, some clear pine and a flat, thin piece of mahogany (i think). I bound it up really well with twisted wire...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1343: I LOVE the Sea!

06-26-2014 12:12 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

Even though I was born and raised in the Midwest, I always loved the sea. From the time I was very young and took field trips with my class to the Shedd Aquarium in Chicago, to when I was a teen reading romance novels that were set in small seaside towns or villages, I dreamed of someday living near the ocean. After many years and what seems like several lifetimes, I have come to realize my dream. I now live in a small town on the Eastern coast of Nova Scotia, and the ocean is only about...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #886: Let it Snow! Let it Snow! Let it Snow!

11-25-2012 01:29 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 7 comments »

I woke up this morning and it was already light out. That alone told me that I had overslept. But there was a reason for doing so, as it was quite a ‘busy’ night. It seems that Keith’s cold has quite a hold on him. What started as a stuffy nose and some aches and pains now turned into a nasty cough. As a result, he was up much of the night trying to get comfortable and find a place where he could settle, as every time he laid down he began to cough. Of course, the cats...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #917: A New Dimension in Designing

12-29-2012 01:55 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 10 comments »

I can’t even begin to tell you all what a good day yesterday was! It felt so good to get back at the saw and actually see some of my new ideas become real. I was beginning to worry, because after being away from things for a couple of weeks, I just didn’t feel like things were going to work out well. It is funny how we do that to ourselves. It seems we have these demons inside of us that whisper doubts in the back of our minds and cause us to doubt ourselves. Many times we li...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #23: "And Now For Something Completely Different . . . ."

06-26-2010 01:12 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

I love the days where you can’t wait to get up in the morning to get going. I am usually a morning person anyway, but even more so when I have some fun projects in the works. Lately I have been in a ‘why do I have to sleep at all?’ phase and I can’t say that is a bad thing either. Yesterday was a good day. In the morning I finished off printing the material for and packing up three projects and three articles to ship out to the magazine. If it were a perfect day,...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #853: My Pumpkin "Die-O-Rama" (LOTS of Pictures!!!)

10-22-2012 12:08 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 12 comments »

Well, yesterday I decided to take a day to do something that I really, really wanted to do and have FUN! We all need those days every now and then – even when you do something you love for a living. So many people tell me that they would never want to do woodworking or make things for a living because that would take the fun out of it for them. I can see their point, but I just think that you need to find other creative ways to have fun with what you are doing. While many of you m...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #477: Things That Go Bump in the Night

09-30-2011 11:17 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

Yesterday – as most days – were filled with fun and adventure. I would say too, but my definition and your definition of the word ‘excitement’ are probably a bit different and what I would consider exciting, probably would even register on your radar. Yes, I live a life that is a bit unusual it seems. I spent the better part of the morning picking around the new software on the site Once again my theory that change, no matter how uncomfortable it may seem at th...
