Today's post will be rather short. I spent the day yesterday writing the pattern packets for the little sea life ornaments. I created two packets – one which uses the regular painting methods and the other using Margot Clark's MUD texture paste. I will be adding both patterns and the wood piece kits to my Etsy site later on today. I will have it on my Sheila Landry Designs site with the next update. :) I finished right around dinner time last night, and then I spent t...
First blog entry! ENDS TODAY (6/30) I seem to come across some pretty stellar deals in my woodworking tool obsession and I though I would share my good finds with my fellow Lumberjocks. Mostly the deals will be from Lowes, Home Depot and Woodcraft. SO the find I wanted to share was IRWIN 12-in Bar Clamp! Lowes has been running them buy one get one free- but this week they are simply HALF OFF. ($10) A good find and while you are there picking some up- look around for Bessey clamps....
"Why a Christmas tree in summer?" you may ask. (My neighbor Lee just asked me this yesterday!)"It's NOT a Christmas tree." I replied "It's an 'All Season' tree. And it makes me happy ALL YEAR LONG."Isn't that what life is all about? Isn't that the focus of ALL of our lives?Living well and being happy. Seeing those we love smile. Enjoying what every beautiful day brings our way. These are goals that most of us strive to achieve e...
I spent the day yesterday refining the ornaments that I showed you in yesterday's blog. Those of you who have come to know me realize that I just can't do things one way. Keith often teases me because I think of so many variations of many of the different designs that I create, but when I think of several versions of doing things, it is hard for me to only make ONE – so I make them ALL! :)I know it takes longer to do and I don't really think it matters. Even after they are f...
Even though I was born and raised in the Midwest, I always loved the sea. From the time I was very young and took field trips with my class to the Shedd Aquarium in Chicago, to when I was a teen reading romance novels that were set in small seaside towns or villages, I dreamed of someday living near the ocean. After many years and what seems like several lifetimes, I have come to realize my dream. I now live in a small town on the Eastern coast of Nova Scotia, and the ocean is only about...

I am really running late this morning because my internet was down until just now. I didn't think that I would be able to write a blog at all. But obviously, it is back up (at least for now!) so I will try to do a quick blog to let you all know about the updates on the site. In addition to the new "Life is Better at the Beach" and "Life is Better at the Lake" plaques that I mentioned in yesterday's post, we have some other new things for you all to enjoy. &nbs...
Lately it seems like we are updating things quite a bit. In reality, we are still keeping to our "about twice a month" schedule of sending out our newsletter and updating the website. In between we must be working more than we realize. Not only are we updating the website today, but Keith is also working on adding all of our new products to our catalog. The last time we updated that was in autumn, and we like to do that at least twice a year. While neither Keith nor myself thou...
I am getting back to normal, whatever that is. The last couple of days were really kind of a pain. (literally!) However, I can't really complain because with the muscle relaxer pills I was taking, it was all manageable. I only need to be careful. I was going to try to not take them today, but this morning just sitting was bothering me quite a bit. So on to Plan B it is and I will try to take them as far apart as possible. The important thing is that I do feel better and I am on the m...
