My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1826: The Business of Running a Business

03-06-2017 01:20 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

I think that most who hear that I design for my living and have my own business have visions of me spending my days in the dreamy wonderland of creating. . . lolling away the hours overlooking the rolling meadow or gazing out to the ocean, drawing or painting my heart out to the sound of the lapping water on the beach. It is truly a wonderful thought, isn't it?While I have been able to experience days such as I described, they are few and far in between. As our little business grows, the ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1825: Just "Wow"!

03-03-2017 02:27 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

I am very pleased with the way things are going these days. It seems that many of the things that I have been planning over the past several months are all coming into reality, and so far the result has been more than I could have ever asked for. I love working with other designers. (Are you seeing a theme here?) Having a "partner in crime" that you admire and trust really does make a difference. Not only are you motivated to do your absolute best, but you also learn a great de...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1824: More Great Adventures

03-02-2017 01:26 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

As usual, it has been a wild and crazy week. Monday was spent finishing up sending out orders and (what else?) organizing some more! I suppose when I get on a roll, I really get into it. My office, as well as my shop, is so fine tuned right now it is amazing. I only have one more section to do that houses my needlework and embroidery supplies and I am totally good to go! That section isn't too bad, though, and I think that will need to wait for another time. I have so much to do to move f...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1823: Hello, Painting My Old Friend

02-23-2017 01:57 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

One would think that with me having a full-time business as a designer, that the majority of my day would be painting, drawing, and cutting new designs on the scroll saw, wouldn't they?  But lately, it seems that the 'business' aspects of our business fill much of the day, and sometimes there is little time left to do the creative things, let alone create for my own pleasure. I am not complaining, mind you. I am thrilled that things are moving in a good direction. I trul...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1822: My Shop (A Tour!)

02-21-2017 01:11 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 11 comments »

I had a crazy/busy weekend (again!)   I had hoped to have some time to paint, but it just wasn't in the cards for me yet. That doesn't mean that I didn't have a productive couple of days. It was quite the opposite. Many of you who have followed me regularly here on the blog may have noticed that I am not posting as much. It isn't because I am not working as much or doing as much creating, but it is more because the 'production' side of my business has really ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1821: Back in the Swing of Things!

02-17-2017 02:34 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

One thing about posting here less often – when I do post there is so much to share with you all! I feel like things are going fast forward again and I am back on the 'creative track' after a bleak two months for me. Those of you who have followed me for a while know that I usually try to look at the good side of even the not-so-good thing that happen. But sometimes, that just doesn't work. Try as I did, I found it hard to feel good about things.  It was time for me to s...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1820: Evolving

02-13-2017 02:02 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

We all work for certain goals in our lives. Be it personal or professional, there always seems to be something to strive for and give out lives purpose. I began my own business many, many years ago. I was in my 20's then and looking for a way to earn some extra income for my young family while doing something that I enjoyed. I had always loved 'making things' and thought that would be somewhat of a utopia for me. Justifying doing something that I love and being paid for it as...
