My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1786: Mystery SOLVED!

10-07-2016 12:49 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

I am happy to report today that the "Mystery of the Missing Little Pusheen" has been SOLVED!  (I know that you all have probably lost sleep over it!  ;) )  It seems that when Keith awoke and got out of bed, there was the little toy snuggled into the covers with him!  Apparently, Richard my kitty had brought me the Little Pusheen earlier and then left the ADDITIONAL Kitty at the doorway after Keith came to bed and the door was closed. So he really had brought me T...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1785: A Crime of Passion

10-06-2016 11:57 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

(Before anyone gets upset – This is just a fun story!) I awoke this morning just as I did any other 'normal' day. It wasn't quite daylight yet and the sun was just beginning to peek over the eastern horizon. As it gently but persistently began to illuminate the morning sky, I knew it was time to begin my day. I openend my bedroom door to see what my cat, Richard had left me today. Lately, for the past week or so, he has been depositing my little knit Pusheen toy at...

Artisan Fair, Delivery of a Desk and a new shop dog!

10-05-2016 10:01 AM by Serradura | 2 comments »

Every now and than we’ll attent an Artisan market or car boot sale. Most of the times that means loading up the old soapy green van with all kinds of secondhand stuff, tables, sunshades and of course the items made in the workshop. This time we tried a different approach by taking the latest project we finished a some smaller workshop items. The Desk, for a schoolgirl, made out of a recycled old panel door, some hardwood door frames and loads of other reclaimed wood was the base of our ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1784: Settling In

10-03-2016 01:17 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

It was a crazy/busy weekend. That means it went perfectly with my crazy/busy life of late. As usual, there is just so much I want to accomplish and only 24 meager hours per day to fit everything in. And for some reason – those hours seem to get shorter every year. I think it is some kind of trick . . . I am writing later than usual today because I have already been to the gym and back.  I am not usually one of those who boasts about my gym visits, but lately, whenever I c...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1783: Seeing Things Differently

09-30-2016 12:26 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 10 comments »

I really love designing. Whether it is scroll saw projects, painting projects or even needlework, I like taking ideas that I have in my head and making them into reality. Sometimes people wonder how I began doing design work, but that is a difficult thing for me to answer. If the term "designing" means changing things up and 'not following the rules or instructions' for a particular project, then I suppose I have been designing most of my life. It seems I always had the abil...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1782: Emotional Real Estate

09-29-2016 12:19 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

Did you ever feel that you were running in lots of directions at once?  Lately, that is exactly how things have felt for me. I have been busy from the time I wake until the time I finally go to sleep, but have been going from one thing to another to yet another. I don't think that this is a bad thing at all, really. Because in the process, I am checking off a lot of things that I wanted to get done and in the end, accomplishing a great deal.  To the outsider, it may not loo...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1781: Some Distractions and an Update

09-27-2016 12:50 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

As some of you may have noticed, I haven't been posting as regularly as you all may have been used to. It seems that the past couple of months have been a bit unsettling for me and I have been a little bit distracted. I don't know if reading about our move is becoming tiring to you all or not. I hope it isn't. I am finding that settling in has taken much longer than I have anticipated and there is really no way around being distracted. After all, both living and working from ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1780: Welcome Autumn!!

09-22-2016 01:32 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

As summer slipped quietly away, it made room for my favorite season of all – AUTUMN! Many people dread the passing of summer, as they see autumn as the gateway to the ice and snow that comes with the winter season that follows. I am fortunate in that my health is good and I am able to appreciate all the seasons without problems. I actually love the cold, crisp air  of winter, along with the snow it brings. I don't even mind being inside for the season, as I am happy to hav...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1779: "Scary Faces"

09-21-2016 12:46 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

As I continue my work as a designer, I also continue to learn and grow. I like to think that each project I do – no matter how large or small – teaches me 'something'. I am often torn between working on my own projects and doing projects from other designers that I admire. Every day as I check my Facebook account and other social media venues I see more and more projects that I want to try. These come in many different types of media – woodworking, painting and ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1778: A Wild and Crazy Start to the Week

09-19-2016 01:45 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 0 comments »

OK – so it hasn't been that 'wild and crazy'. But it is barely 10am here and I feel as if I have put in nearly a full day already. All my mail is organized, my desk is clean, and the mail is just about ready to go out the door. It is a good start to the week. I also already have been to the gym this morning. While I am not one of those people who feels the need to report every time I go to the gym, I find that today it was somewhat significant. I have been playing '...
