My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1806: Rescuing the Rabbit

11-30-2016 01:28 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 8 comments »

As we arrive on this final day of November, we realize that Christmas and the holidays are right around the corner. Once again, I am in awe of how quickly time passes. It seems like just last week I was working on my glass pumpkin and teaching video for the November ToleTown project, and here I am with another project (and video) due. It all seemed to happen in a blink of an eye. But happen, it did, and as time marches brutally forward, we have no choice but to fall into line and try to ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1779: "Scary Faces"

09-21-2016 12:46 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

As I continue my work as a designer, I also continue to learn and grow. I like to think that each project I do – no matter how large or small – teaches me 'something'. I am often torn between working on my own projects and doing projects from other designers that I admire. Every day as I check my Facebook account and other social media venues I see more and more projects that I want to try. These come in many different types of media – woodworking, painting and ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1777: Meow, Meow, Boo! (Part 2)

09-15-2016 11:45 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

Today's post will be a brief one. (Yes – I know! I always say that!)  My day yesterday was pretty much filled with doing some 'maintenance' things for the business as well as our home. Unfortunately, there is nothing profound or exciting about that. I don't really mind, though. The older I get, the more I like these 'non-exciting' days. Today, however, I want to hit the ground running. I have a lot I want to accomplish and time is ticking. I want to mak...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1776: #1776 Meow, Meow, Boo (Part 1)

09-14-2016 12:52 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

Some of you may have noticed that I have been a bit 'unsettled' lately. While I have been keeping my self busy, I have felt as if I haven't been making much headway in several areas. Maybe the term 'overwhelmed' is a bit more fitting. I have never been one to make excuses for myself. I learned at an early age that it is better to own up to the things you did or didn't do and then move on from there. To me, the consequences of thinking about things were far worse t...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1775: "Finished"

09-13-2016 12:32 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

It is always a thrill to finish up a project. Whether it is a project that I designed, or one that I did that was created by someone else, I always feel a wonderful sense of satisfaction when I finally call it "done". As most of you who read know, I am usually working on several things at once. I design my own projects, but at the same time I try to squeeze in some projects that were created by other artists that I admire. Like most of you, I am addicted to creating and when I ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1771: Welcome to the "Slow Train"

09-02-2016 01:04 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

I have missed the past few days of blogging, but with good reason. It used to bother me to miss, but after over 1700 posts, I have come to understand that sometimes we need to have to stay off of social media and the computer in general in order to do the things that we want to write about. For me, that is usually doing some type of creating. (Although yesterday I had an eye exam appointment in the morning in Digby, which is about a hour drive from where I live. There was no way that I would ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1770: From Fairy Land to Fantasy

08-30-2016 12:32 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

As an independent, freelance designer, I am fortunate that I am able to vary my designs to my heart's content. While I do have to (somewhat) follow trends, I have the flexibility of creating not only the type of pattern that I would like to see, but also pick the subject, type of media that is used to create it. It is really what makes things fun. But with that fun, also comes responsibility. Many know that 'artists' tend to march to their own drummer. While this creates new ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1769: Continuing the Fairy Tale . . .

08-29-2016 01:06 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

As I awoke this morning and came down the stairs, my cat (Richard) was sitting in my studio room, staring at the floor vent. You all know how cats can be. Just – well – looking . . . (and looking. . .  and looking.)  It kind of creeped me out. The house in which we live is old. My studio is on the first floor, right above the basement. The basement with the stone walls that many of the 150 year old houses in this area have. The basement that had several mouse traps ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1768: Enjoying the Journey

08-26-2016 01:19 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

It is raining today. That is good for us here in Nova Scotia. While it has been a beautiful summer by most people's standards (mine, anyway!) it has been quite dry and the rain is very much appreciated. I supposed that it is appropriate that the piece "Raindrops" by Chopin just came on my headphones. I didn't plan it that way. I am listening to a six hour playlist of 'relaxing classical music' from YouTube. I like that lately in the morning. It is a good way to ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1766: Return to Fairyland

08-23-2016 12:23 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

Who doesn't like to daydream sometimes? Who doesn't like to allow their thoughts to wander to places impossible to visit? As children, we learn to daydream from the many stories and fairy tales we are told and read about. We visit fantastic places, where nothing is impossible and characters are not always human. We hear of mermaids, wizards, and other magical creatures that take on a personality and life that can only occur in our imaginations. It is wonderful and fascinating all...
