Tools #1: Hand Tools and The Modern Shop

06-29-2017 02:11 PM by CalOrgill | 5 comments »

Hello everyone, I have been thinking about wood working tools; I didn’t realize how many hand tools are still used today. I think its awesome that this heritage and culture is still alive to make truly hand crafted wood furniture. I think there are two sides of woodworking. The first is that woodworking is a hobby and it is a good way to express creativity by building something that is stunning and pleasing to the eye. The second is that almost everyand home needs some type of woo...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1845: New Projects (again!)

06-29-2017 12:19 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

While one would think that the reason that I haven't been blogging regularly is due to things slowing down, usually the opposite is true. As always, I have several things 'on the go' at once and many times I just don't know what to do first. Add to this that the weather here in Nova Scotia has been just beautiful, and not only does that lend itself to outdoor projects (yard work, etc.) but also really makes me want to head to the beach for the day.  Our home is so close t...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1843: Finishing Up Some Projects

06-19-2017 01:21 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

Since most of you are also creators and crafters, I am sure you understand the dilemma that we all have in finding enough time to finish all the projects we begin.For me, it is usually a matter of not having enough time to complete everything that I want to complete. I see a new project and attack it with great enthusiasm, then one thing or another comes along and pulls me away from it, and I don't know when I am able to return to finish.  Trust me when I say that it becomes even mor...

I have been playing around with infographics for promoting our business. This was the first one I did, what do you think?

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1842: Now There Are Three (Sheep)

06-16-2017 11:55 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

Yesterday was a difficult day. Most of you who read or know me know how much I love kitties. Cats and kittens have always been such a big part of my life. Most of my life I have had at least one cat and most of the time more than that. To me, they aren't only pets but valued members of my family. Many of you remember that this past December, I suddenly lost my dear feline friend Pancakes to illness. He had gone into surgery that was intended as 'exploratory' and never made it...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1841: Classic Amy Joanne Halloween Ornament Club

06-14-2017 12:29 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 0 comments »

One of the best things about being a designer is that I get to 'hang around' other artistic and creative people. With all the negativity in the world these days, it is good to have a place to focus where only positive thoughts are allowed inside. That is how I treat my "Creative Place". Because my Creative Place is not a physical location and more or less a state of mind, I can be there anytime I wish, any day of the week. I only have to shift my thinking a bit and I ca...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1840: The "Maiden Voyage" Completed!

06-13-2017 12:28 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

After what seemed like a long, long time, I have finally completed the first (and largest and most complex) piece from Lynne Andrews' Inspirational Ark series! I can't express the wonderful sense of accomplishment that I feel right now. It isn't that the piece was particularly difficult or complex, but it has been painted at a time when I have been incredibly busy (ironically – from cutting ARKS for this series) and my part of our business was somewhat being re-shaped and tu...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1839: #1839 More New Projects

06-12-2017 12:26 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

What a beautiful and busy weekend we had! There is something about the nice weather that just makes us want to 'do' things, isn't there? Even though Friday was a rather dark and dreary day, with heavy rain for most of the day, things calmed down by the evening and both Saturday and Sunday were warm, sunny and picture-perfect!  We couldn't have asked for better!  I was actually rather happy for the rain on Friday, as it gave all the flowers and plants that I just...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1838: Happy Mail and New Projects!

06-08-2017 12:47 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

I'll begin today's post with some news that I just found out. My photos source for all my blog posts (Image Box) just informed me when I signed in that it is "closing" as of June 30th. Even though I haven't been blogging much lately, I used to do so just about every day, so you can imagine the number of photos that I have stored there. What it will mean to you, my readers is that when you go to my older blogs, the images that use that address (all except Lumberjocks.com)...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1837: Fun With New Projects

06-05-2017 12:01 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 7 comments »

As I try to achieve my goal of getting back to blogging more often, I wonder if showing you all the piles of wood that I cut interests you all. I wonder if they all begin to look the same to you or if it is really something that you enjoy seeing. Since much of my time these days has been spent on production work and filling orders for decorative painters, I find that if I don't show the piles, I sometimes don't have a great deal new to say here. However, I know that many of my followe...
