My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #604: A Busy Day Ahead

02-05-2012 03:50 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

I am afraid you are all going to get the cheap version of the blog today. There is just so much I want to accomplish and it is already later than usual. I had one of those strange evenings where I was thinking so much that I couldn’t sleep. So much to plan and do. At about 4am I finally gave up and came out in the living room to read through some things on the computer, but after a bit, I fell asleep again on the couch and when I woke up it was already almost 8am. For me that is qu...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #603: Heading for the (Big) Shop

02-04-2012 02:32 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 9 comments »

Today will be a fun day. We are going to our friend Bernie’s shop to dress some wood and bring it back here. It was Bernie’s birthday earlier this week and we are also going to have a celebration dinner there, as it isn’t only his birthday, but also his daughter’s, too. This is an annual event that we have and we are looking forward to not only a wonderful dinner, but a good day in the shop, too. For those of you who aren’t aware, my partner Keith and I liv...

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...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #601: The Courage to Think Ahead

02-02-2012 02:38 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

Thinking ahead is something that we do on a daily basis. several times a day. From the time we wake up, most of us begin to organize our days in our minds without much conscious thinking. For many people, the planning begins early, with that first cup of coffee. From choosing breakfast to deciding what we will have for supper and everything in between, we plan the short term activities that fill up our day. Then there are the long term plans. (When will I do my taxes? When will I begi...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #600: Kicking it Around

02-01-2012 01:13 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 11 comments »

I sometimes wonder if it is legal to have so much fun! I have had some really incredible days and there seems to be no end in sight. There is such a wide world of creative things to do that seeing each one come to life is just one thrill after another. Keith has been no slouch either. I see what he has come up with in his designing and I think he gets better every day. It is nice to know that you have a partner with so much talent. What is good is that we both enjoy different types of...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #599: The Blink of an Eye

01-31-2012 03:21 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

When I lived in the Chicago area, I grew up with the notion that the weather could change at any time. One minute it would be 70 degrees and sunny and half an hour later you would need your heavy coat and rain gear. It was one of the residual effect of living lakeside and many errant weather forecasts were attributed to ‘lake effect.’ I find that living here in Nova Scotia is no different. Whether it is the ocean or the changing climate that the entire planet is going through,...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #598: Moving Right Along

01-30-2012 12:18 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 7 comments »

Yesterday turned out to be a really good day. It was one of those days that was somewhat quiet and I stayed focused and made good progress on my project. I tidied up the house a bit and then I spent some time refining some of the drawings. When I draw on the computer, I do so at 600% or more and sometimes what I am drawing comes out a bit more detailed than I want. I usually know what limitations that I have when scrolling even if things are magnified quite a bit. I forget about it some...

Shameless Self Promotion #1: Stuff I do, My first Kickstarter Project, Etsy Shop, Social Media, and my many websites...

Well, since I’m doing all this online marketing stuff to promote my business(es), I might as well talk about it every chance I get. In addition to woodworking and home repairs, I’m also a bit of an artist. I learned portraiture through my Mom when I was growing up, and have picked it up again recently. Here's some of my work: What’s this all got to do with woodworking? Frames, of course! Also, paper is made out of wood. But I’ll just stick to the frames ;...

Recession, Dealing with the Internet, a Changing Business Formula, & Reading the Times We Are In

01-27-2012 07:14 PM by Mark A. DeCou | 9 comments »

Since my last muse of writing a blog, a lot has happened in my life and business. All of it has been good, I’ve just been so busy that I have not taken the time to write much. For instance, I went to North Carolina last June to teach a woodworking class at the John Campbell Folk School. I had a wonderful time away with the family, met some great guys, and had a wonderful time…...but have not taken time to document the adventure with the photos and stories I gathered while the...
