My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1732: Through Artist's Eyes

05-11-2016 12:24 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

Is there such a thing as loving too many things about life?As I wake up each morning and try to plan out my day, I think my biggest problem that I am encounter on most days is which direction to head.One tends to view others that are self-employed as someone who gets to sit on the beach most of the time, drinking a tropical drink with a wide-brimmed straw hat and wondering where they will spend their next holiday. When I come across people that have that mentality (yes – they do exist) ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1731: The Spice of Life

05-09-2016 12:27 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 0 comments »

It has been another busy end of the week, as well as weekend. As we are moving into the second week of May, the weather is finally getting warmer and beginning to resemble spring and summer. Hopefully in the next week, I will be picking up my car from the place that is working on it and I will once again have my driving freedom. It has been a long story regarding  my vehicle this past year, and I don't want to bore anyone here with those details. There is enough good to focus on and ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1730: #1730 A Box Filled With "Possibilities"

05-04-2016 01:04 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

What is better than a beautifully crafted, furniture quality box?Why a beautifully crafted, furniture quality box filled with supplies, of course! Yesterday, I showed you the lovely box that I snagged on the Derwent site last weekend. For the price (about $140 CDN or $115 USD SHIPPED from England) I was thrilled with the quality and workmanship that Derwent used to build it. But let's face it – the reason that I ordered it in the first place was to use it for storing my odds an...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1729: Boxing Day

05-03-2016 01:39 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

As an artist, I love getting new supplies. Besides loving to work in so many different types of media, being active on the internet and participating in classes and online forums exposes me to many, many different new and exciting products. It really keeps my creative juices flowing and I love trying new techniques and products. It is a wonderful part of what I do. Many of you know that I live in a very small place. Keith and I have lived in a one bedroom apartment for over seven years n...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1728: Patience

05-02-2016 12:49 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

Sometimes I think I am my own worst enemy. There are times – especially when I am designing – that I am very, very hard on myself and just not happy with the way things are going. As a result, the things I do often take a great deal of time for me to complete. I wind up changing things and re-doing them several times before I even show them to you all. There are even times when these projects are scrapped and put in a drawer or completely discarded. Although I am happy to say that...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1727: Change

04-29-2016 12:49 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

There are a few things we can be certain of in this world. We have all heard the saying that "the only thing that we can be sure of is death and taxes", but as I get older, I find that something in that quote was left out. . . change.While some of us are uncomfortable with change, others thrive on it. I am not sure where my feelings lie in this equation, but I think they are somewhere in the middle.Change can be scary, as many times change is accompanied by the 'unknown'. Bu...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1726: More Updates, Sales and a Newsletter

04-28-2016 10:59 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

I have so many wonderful plans ahead of me!  As I dream about our new, larger home as well as my very own studio, my head is filled with more ideas than ever. While I am proud of the way we made our business work while living in and working out of a small, one bedroom place, I can't help but feel wonderful that the time here will soon be behind me and both Keith and I will be able to spread our wings and really FLY!I am hoping that I am not deluding myself into thinking that with mor...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1725: Creating Every Day

04-27-2016 01:09 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

OK.  It may appear that I have been 'slacking'. Between cutting mountains of ornaments, having a cold/flu for a couple of weeks, and having some family things to take care of, it may seem that I have somewhat fallen out of the habit of posting here each day.There may be some merit to that, as it is no secret that I haven't been here every day as I have for the last several years, but that doesn't really mean that I am not creating. I just try my best to keep my posts...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1724: Checking In

04-25-2016 12:02 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

It seems that lately I haven't been here very much (blogging, I mean.)  Even though I have felt that I am busier than ever, Between starting off the year with a tremendous amount of orders, getting sick for a couple of weeks and then 'catching up' with things, I have felt very much out of my regular routine. I don't know if that is a bad thing or a good thing, as I am still accomplishing a lot, but just not in the usual places. Add to that we are planning to move in ...
