My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1741: Organization

06-10-2016 12:20 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

As I mentioned before, the next several weeks will be quite busy for Keith and I. We are in the process of preparing to move in the next few weeks and there is a great deal of things we need to do. It isn't that we were unorganized while living in our current place, but rather that we are expanding our living space to nearly four times what we have today. Needless to say, we are beyond excited. While Keith and I think differently on several issues (and what couple doesn't?), one ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1740: A Little Break

06-06-2016 01:20 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

In preparing to move in a few weeks, you can imagine that things are a bit different in my life these days. Even though the 'big day' is a couple of weeks away, my general routine is rather 'off' and my mind has been in many different directions. For the first time in years, I feel as if I am not producing designs like I should.This isn't a matter of "Designer's Block" or anything of that nature. I have more ideas than I have time to create. It is more like &...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1739: 12 Days of Christmas - Day 5 Complete!

06-02-2016 12:44 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

I have been busier than usual the past couple of weeks, and I expect that this will continue for the near future as we prepare our move into our new house. There is so much to consider and so much organizing to to! We are both really excited about it, but it is also very time consuming to plan and think things through and also figure out and purchase what we will need to make the move as seamless as possible regarding our business. Since we no longer will be both working in one room, the...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1738: Creating for Relaxation

05-31-2016 01:27 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 0 comments »

One of the most difficult things that I find about owning your own business is finding the "off switch."  As someone who has been dedicated to creating and art for over 20 years now, working on art of business related things has not only become a habit, but also a lifestyle. Many times my partner Keith mentions to me that my 'relaxing' (off) days look a lot like my 'working' days, as it seems that I am always in the process of making soemthing in some shape...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1737: A New Series of Designs - Almost Ready!

05-30-2016 12:58 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 7 comments »

It seems like I haven't blogged forever. Even though I have only missed for a week, it feels like much more time has passed than that. It has been over six years since I began posting nearly every day, and breaking away from that routine has been difficult, but I feel for now it is necessary. We are going though many changes at this time. Keith and I have made the decision to move into a larger place and there is much preparation that needs to be done to make our move go smoothly. Fo...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1736: Update and Discount Coupon

05-21-2016 12:18 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 0 comments »

I am going to keep this post quick today, as I have some projects that I want to work on this weekend, but I did want to mention to you all that we once again updated the website and we are also having a sale coupon for those of us who subscribe to our Mailing List. I realize that I am not the best sales person in the world, but I thought that I would let you all know because there are so many of you that are new to our site and I want to give everyone a fair shot at the discount.  In ou...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1735: Choosing a Focus

05-18-2016 12:48 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 0 comments »

As I sit here this morning, I can't help but feel content and happy about my life. Certainly things are not 'perfect' all the time – that would be unnatural – but when I look at things overall, the important things are going well, and I can hardly complain about trivial things that don't really matter in the big picture of my life.  My loved ones are all healthy, (Both those with and without tails!) our business is doing well enough to keep it going, and we ar...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1734: Monday Madness

05-16-2016 12:23 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

I am going to try to keep this post on the short side. As usual, I am doing many different things and I am running in several different directions. The weekend was busy and full and I have lots of new things that I am working on that I will be sharing in the near future. At last count, I am working with (I think!) FIVE other designers in one capacity or another on some really cool projects.  These collaborations are in addition to my own work in my own many directions, so you can imagine...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1733: Recovery

05-13-2016 11:48 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

Yesterday was a tough day. Even though everything turned out alright, it was very emotionally draining. I am very happy to have it behind me, and I look forward to moving on ahead from here. Nothing really tragic happened, but my dear kitty Pancakes needed to have some oral surgery done. I realize that many of you may think that this is an 'extravagance', but I assure you it is not. Any one of you who has suffered tooth pain should realize the importance and necessity of somethin...

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) ...
