Sometimes I feel as if I have triplets. In a way, I do. (Or even quadruplets or quintuplets – depending on how you look at it!) There are just so many aspects of creating that I enjoy, that it is difficult to stick to only one medium. I love painting and drawing, but I also love embroidery and woodworking as well. Then there are paper craft and even sewing. I have so many ideas that cross over into other areas that it is hard to decide which ones I want to do at any given moment. ...
Oh – I seem to be so late at getting to my blogs these days! I find that I wind up spending the mornings visiting my artistic friends' pages and seeing what they posted through the night. That usually takes me away to other places and gives me MORE ideas of new things to create. It is a vicious circle! ;) I spent the day yesterday finishing up drawing my new patterns for the scroll saw projects I am making and I actually got MOST of them cut out. With all the errands and stuff ...
My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1705: Day 3 of my "12 Days of Christmas" Project Complete!
It is hard to believe that it is MARCH already! Here in Nova Scotia, it is definitely coming 'in like a lamb' as we have sunshine and warm temperatures and a slight breeze. It really feels good to have the windows opened and allow the fresh air inside. Even if we do see another spot of winter, I am grateful for these little breaks. It is a nice indication of what is yet to come. I spent yesterday working on some new designs as well as finishing up my "Day 3" of my Lynne...
I am always looking for more time, it seems. Once every four years my wish comes true – we get an extra day to do things. Today is leap day and many consider it an 'extra' day. I will gladly take it!This year has been so busy from the start for me. I can't believe that we are through the first two months already. Time is certainly moving quickly – even more so than usual. I suppose it helps that I sit here on this February 29th with my window open slightly. I am enjoyi...
Have a Oakley R99 edge sander. It is a 3 phase machine with a 3 hp motor. It is around 10 ft in length and weighs around 800 to 1000lbs. Needing to know the best place to advertise it for sale and a good price to ask for it. The machine is in good shape. There is nothing missing or broken. I have had it on Craigslist for awhile . I live in eastern Ky.
The other day my brother gave me a call, asking if I wanted to build something for his shop. He owns a Cigar shop in Whitecourt Alberta called Cheap Smokes and Cigars. It’s a really cool shop, very classy and nostalgic, they have the basic inventory of cigarettes which they sell cheaper than any gas station or grocery store can offer, but beyond that they have an array of humidors (My creations will soon be joining this inventory), Pipes, Tobacco, Vaporisers and a massive walk in humido...
I am still not able to upload photos. You can read my blog on my site here: http://www.sheilalandrydesigns.com/blog/post/3732704 (It’s a GOOD one! Lots of photos and a tutorial! Just sayin’ . . . ;) )
Those of you in the Chicago-area might find this interesting. I’ve leased a 4’ x 8’ booth at the Andersonville Galleria (5247 North Clark Street in Chicago. Learn more at andersonvillegalleria.com). I’m hoping this will be a useful tool for selling my furniture. They have about ninety booths there and I think there is only one other furniture maker. I’d like to see a few more of us there!
Lj’s isn’t letting me post pictures here, so you can read my blog at my website here if you like. :) http://www.sheilalandrydesigns.com/blog/post/3732384 (Sorry for the inconvenience!) Have a great day! Sheila
My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1700: Along Came a (Little, Fat) Spider!
As usual, the weekend went by much too quickly. We had a 'visiting day' on Friday, and I had earmarked Saturday for cutting orders. Sunday was to be my day to 'relax', but that didn't really happen. (It never really does!) I am not complaining though, as I did accomplish a lot and I was able to spend the latter part of the evening finishing up my Panel 1 on my latest embroidery project. So much is going on lately in my life it seems. The growth of our business i...
