My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1853: New Project for Toletown for September

08-30-2017 01:40 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

In keeping with my promise to myself and you all to try to do better with blogging regularly, I decided to post some pictures of a project that I am working on for the Toletown painting community for September. For those of you who are unfamiliar with Toletown (www.toletown.com) it is an online painting group that is a fun place to learn about and share our love of painting. I have been aware of them for well over ten years and have been a member for as long as I can remember. a few...

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...

Making Hell's Pizza Cutter - Feat. Green Beetle

10-01-2016 02:01 PM by ShogunJimi | 0 comments »

In this video, I create a handle for “Hell’s Pizza Cutter” which was summoned to me by Steve aka Green Beetle. I reach deep into my woodworking background (thanks Dad) to fashion it out of Ebony and Purduk and sand it to 2000 grit for a glass like surface. And this unique blade will ultimately be auctioned to my favorite charity – Make-A-Wish Foundation.

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1632: Reaching the Goals We Set

10-05-2015 12:43 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

After a rainy and overcast weekend, on this beautiful Monday morning the sun is bright and shining. It looks to be another lovely autumn day here in Nova Scotia. The weather didn't bother me a bit though, as I was focused on doing some 'inside' things and working on some new projects and crossing off those deadlines. It was nice actually to not 'have' to go out anywhere, and I made good use of the time I had. I don't think that I mentioned it here before, but...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1631: Self-Challenges

10-02-2015 12:32 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

It felt so good to be caught up yesterday. That, by no means translates to being 'done' with everything – but it more or less means that I am on a workable schedule. For a while there, I thought I was slipping, with getting things completed just under the wire. While I like to have deadlines to pace myself, there are times that the sneak up faster than I anticipate and I find myself wondering if I will be able to meet them. It can be a slippery slope when I don't leave enoug...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1605: There's Hope

08-12-2015 11:06 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

Yesterday I had to skip posting. Our internet had become so spotty that it was difficult to stay online for any length of time. Over the past couple of weeks, both Keith and I noticed the problem was getting worse. The thing that got us wondering though was that much of the time it would work fine, but then it would be 'dragging' for increasing lengths of time. Sometimes hours. It is funny how dependent we have become on the internet. Not only for our business, but for our every ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1549: Carousel Kit is Posted on the Website

05-07-2015 10:26 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

Are you all tired of reading about this project yet?  I hope not. It is just been that it has really kind of consumed my life these past couple of weeks and because of that, I have had little else to write about. But I am getting to the end of my journey with this and soon will be moving on to other new things. I really appreciate all the nice comments and encouragement from everyone. When you work from home, outside feedback is really important – especially on the days when things...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1548: It's All in the Details

05-06-2015 12:47 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

For the past three weeks, I have been writing about a project that I was creating that I had been thinking about for over two years. I have hoped that it didn't get boring or tedious for you all to read, as my mind has been focused on little else and (for me, anyway) it was a long process to see it come to fruition. What I saw in my mind over the last few years probably changed hundreds of times. From one day to the next, not only the style and graphics on the project changed, but al...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1546: Haunted Carousel Central Pillar

05-04-2015 12:18 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

We had a beautiful weekend here in Nova Scotia. Finally we are seeing some warmer temperatures and are feeling the warmth of the sun. the grass is beginning to turn green again and the buds on the trees are finally, slowly emerging. Winter is definitely over. On Saturday Keith and I drove to Halifax. We had some errands to do and supplies to pick up, and I had someone look at my car to bid for some work that I need to have done on it. It is eleven years old now and while I have kept it i...
