My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1718: A Horse of a Different Color

04-11-2016 12:41 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

When I last posted on Friday, I spoke of being filled with self-doubt. Even though I have had many successes in things that I have tried to accomplish, most of them did not come easily. I don't for one second think that only happens to me. I have always looked upon humans as being an iceberg. We only see a small portion of their makeup and below the surface there is a vast part of them that only the individual can know about and understand. Within that part lies the struggles and victorie...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1717: Overcoming Self-Doubt

04-07-2016 12:31 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

As an artist, I am filled with self-doubt.I am not saying that to gain your pity or sympathy, or to fish for compliments, but I truly feel that way. It isn't that I don't like or enjoy what I create. Most of the time, I am pretty satisfied with my accomplishments. The longer that I do this (create and design) the more I understand that there are very, very few people who are able to pick up a certain type of media and create a "masterpiece" with little effort. As with most t...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1716: Developing Your Own Sense of Style

04-06-2016 12:06 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 0 comments »

I did a funny thing yesterday. I wrote a blog in the morning and while I posted it on Lumberjocks (the woodworking site) I forgot to post it on my own site, Facebook, or any of the other places that I usually share it.  I suppose I am not quite back to 'normal' after all! I am finding that getting back into stride is a little bit more of a process than I would have thought. It seems that sometimes once our general routine is changed or suspended, it isn't always easy to ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1715: Back to "Normal"

04-05-2016 12:04 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

"Things happen for a reason." I have heard that saying for probably most of my life. I used to think it was something people just said to placate others when things weren't going as they had planned, but the older I get, the more that I feel that perhaps there is some merit to it after all. Maybe it is that I just want it to be that way, so that in my mind I can organize and make sense of things that cause chaos in our lives. It is hard to tell. These past few weeks ha...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1714: Back to the Routine

04-04-2016 10:35 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

I'm Baaaaaack!  While I felt the break was much-needed, I can't tell you how good it feels to be back to a routine again. I don't think I had a time in the six years that I have been writing when I had so much time off. I certainly haven't been as sick as I was these past few weeks.  It seems as if the entire month of March was a blur of cold remedies, doctors and naps. It is so out of character for me! But I am glad to say that I feel pretty safe in saying "I a...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1713: Slowly Coming Back - Baby Steps

03-28-2016 12:18 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 9 comments »

It seems like forever since I have blogged here.  After posting nearly every day for over six years, having two weeks off can feel like an eternity. At least to me it does. The past week or so I have been busy resting. I know that sounds like an oxymoron, and in my case it definitely is. It takes a bit of effort for me to do 'nothing.' Because I am usually running at full throttle, I find it very difficult to find the 'off' button as far as being active. But for thes...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1712: Scenes from the ER

03-21-2016 01:06 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

These last couple of weeks have been kind of a blur. What started with Keith's being 'man sick' (our term for when he gets ill – which isn't often) had spread to me and even the cats have had their sick moments. I suppose it was probably time, as we both hadn't had any real illnesses in  what seems like years. Perhaps it was due to the mild on-again-off-again winter we have been experiencing. Maybe there just wasn't enough of a hard freeze to kill everything...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1711: Checking In . . .

03-18-2016 12:03 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

I try to keep my posts here positive and I think I am successful in doing that for these six years that I have been writing.  But sometimes life just throws us a curve ball and we have to take a step back from things. I haven't written this week because I have been down with a cold/flu. I have had lots of nice messages and notes from my readers wondering what was up, as they are used to me blogging nearly every day. I just wanted to explain to you all why I am not here. I went t...

Blog #1

03-17-2016 01:28 PM by MatthewTruax | 1 comment »

With this being my first blog, I’ll start by saying that my name is Matthew Truax. I’m currently serving the Army, and I live in the Midwest. Of course, being in the Army and having a wood shop has proven to be difficult as I’m currently well over my household goods weight limit. I’m trying to mitigate that by getting rid of what I don’t need and building multi tool stations in the shop to alleviate space issues as well. My shop currently resides in a two car ...

The art of building Wooden boats

03-16-2016 03:14 AM by BigBrownLog | 8 comments »

I’m just getting this blog post started so it already set up, but in the next 6 months I should have everything up and running for me to build wooden boats for people. I’ll be starting out with some strip built kayaks and canoes most likely. In all actuality I have no idea what people are going to want. I plan on just getting the word out and let people come to me so we can sit down and draw up exactly what they want. After I’ve got a good thing going I will start cold moldi...
