My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1792: Finished the Pumpkin and Started Something New

10-21-2016 02:10 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

It is already past my 'normal blog time' this morning, so I will get right down to business. I am figuring out that sometimes we need to sacrifice chit-chat for quality content. While I like to sit and muse about the day, my plans and life in general with you all, I am finding that sometimes it is best if I just get to what I want to do and talk about it a little less. The photos speak for themselves. My routine has changed somewhat lately and I have been trying to hit the gym pr...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1791: It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like (Kim) Christmas

10-20-2016 01:27 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

I have always been one of those designers that loves to work on designs from others that I admire. I can't help it. I see something that someone else creates that 'speaks to me' and I can't help but try to make the time to create it. I look at it as helping support the industry that I love so much. It also gives my brain a rest and keeps me feeling like I am having fun. After all – I believe that enjoying what I am doing is linked in a big part to the amount of success t...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1790: #1790 On the Ninth Day of Christmas . . .

10-18-2016 01:02 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 0 comments »

Yesterday was a good day in many respects. Not only did I feel as if I got a bit caught up with things, but I was feeling a bit more like myself again. (My productive self, that is!)  I think the two days away really did me a world of good. Not only was in inspired by seeing so much creativity and beauty, but I got a chance to not think about the business, my computer or any of my day-to-day tasks for a short time. While I missed having Keith travel with me, it was a comfort knowing that...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1789: Back From My Break

10-17-2016 02:59 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

“How can you miss me if I don’t go away?” It’s one of those questions that may seem to state the obvious, but few seem to get it. As many of you that follow me know, I have been going through a kind of ‘transition’ all summer long. I have been blogging for what I think may be six years already (I truly lost count) and never mind sharing my creative adventures with you all. (Some personal ones as well!) You have been just as inspirational to me as you ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1788: Catching Up

10-13-2016 12:24 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

It is hard to believe that we are already nearly halfway through with the month of October. I don't know if it is because I have been so busy, or because it is my favorite month of the year, but the days just seem to pass by even more quickly than usual and before we know it, winter will be here. I never really mind winter. I don't mind any of the seasons really. If I had a favorite it would be autumn though, with its crisp mornings, cool days and sometimes cold evenings. The col...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1787: Catching Up

10-11-2016 12:46 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

I feel as if I haven't done you all justice lately. Things have been quite busy here and I have been burning the oil late to try to squeeze more hours from the day. Because of that, something has to give and I find myself not getting up until after 6am in the morning. That may sound pretty early to some of you, but I always said that any time I put in before six was like a 'bonus' for me because I seemed to be so productive at that early hour. Any time I awoke that was after about...

Sketchup extension - FitParts for cut plans

10-09-2016 10:40 AM by Slavisa Nesic | 0 comments »

I’ve made a Sketchup extension named FitParts for generating cut plans from your drawing. Let’s say you are making a panel box just for example. First you make 6 walls and group every one of them as you go; it is nice and normal to name them, say left, right, .... Second you select these groups. Third you start my extension from Sketchup menu Extensions / FitParts / MakeCutlist. You will choose or type the size of (identical) panels you have and click the Cut button.What you will...

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 ...
