My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #635: What You See Isn't Always What You Get

03-07-2012 12:24 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 8 comments »

I am afraid that I don’t have many interesting things to talk about today. I spent the majority of the day yesterday working on photographs for the pumpkin pattern. I had shown the step-by-step pictures that I had taken earlier in the week and since then have taken more pictures to show the steps to painting the pumpkin faces. The results is quite a few pictures necessary for that one packet. In order for the pictures to be useful, they need to show the true color of what they are....

Crazy Stuff Stumpy Thinks About #5: I'm not the only moron around here... Introducing Joy, Kyle and Randy...

03-06-2012 01:43 PM by StumpyNubs | 26 comments »

A lot of people ask me who works in the Stumpy Nubs Workshop. They see me talking to someone off camera on one of the shows, or they notice I say “we, here at the Stumpy Nubs Workshop” a lot, yet I’m the only one they ever see on camera. So, here’s the lowdown on that: It’s much like the situation that Sam Maloof enjoyed, only without the skill and artistic genius. He hired a young man to help him around the shop. Soon he had far more people who wanted to be his “shop boy” than he had spac...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #634: Many Directions

03-06-2012 11:46 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 8 comments »

One thing about doing the variety of things that I do, I never really run out of new ideas. I enjoy the thought of moving from one style to another and while sometimes it can be a bit overwhelming, for the most part it keeps me longing to work and looking forward to each day and creating something new. The kitty chalkboard is out the door and on its way to the magazine now. I don’t know why getting things packed up and out the door seems to be so much of a chore, but there are time...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #633: Writing, Writing, Writing

03-05-2012 10:53 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

I am afraid that today’s post won’t be very exciting. I worked most of the day yesterday on writing instructions and I did get the materials ready to ship the Kitty Cat Chalkboard to New Jersey for publication. I don’t know why it seemed to take so long, but there were 18 pictures that I included in the instructions and doing the editing on them took me a bit longer than I anticipated. But that is all behind me now and the pickup is scheduled and it will be on its way lat...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #632: New Project Just About Finished

03-04-2012 12:13 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 11 comments »

When I got up this morning, it was already getting light out. At first I thought I overslept, but in looking at the clock I realized that it was somewhere around the normal time I get up and it is just becoming light out earlier. Yes, spring is well on its way and soon winter will be behind us. Did we even have a winter? I hear of the fury of storms and tornadoes sweeping the US and I remember why spring is probably my least favorite season of the four. Growing up near Chicago, there w...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #631: Teaching Through Baby Steps

03-03-2012 12:31 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 7 comments »

There are days when I feel like I do not accomplish all that I want to do. Usually, if I sit down and really think about it and list the things that I did throughout the day, I find that things aren’t really as bad as I originally thought and that in actuality, I did achieve a lot. It is just that what I choose to do takes time and thought, and I need to remind myself of that sometimes and not expect everything to be done in the blink of an eye. I am currently working on four patte...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #628: The Extra Day

02-29-2012 11:55 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 10 comments »

Every four years we get an extra day. I never really thought about it before, it really is something that is kind of special. Those of you who read regularly have heard me wish from time to time for that evasive 48 hour day. There are so many things that I want to get done, that I am always looking for more time to complete everything. I suppose that my wish has come true and today is exactly that. Today we all received the gift of an additional 24 hours. When you think about it a bi...
