My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1716: Developing Your Own Sense of Style

04-06-2016 12:06 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 0 comments »

I did a funny thing yesterday. I wrote a blog in the morning and while I posted it on Lumberjocks (the woodworking site) I forgot to post it on my own site, Facebook, or any of the other places that I usually share it.  I suppose I am not quite back to 'normal' after all! I am finding that getting back into stride is a little bit more of a process than I would have thought. It seems that sometimes once our general routine is changed or suspended, it isn't always easy to ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1705: Day 3 of my "12 Days of Christmas" Project Complete!

03-01-2016 01:43 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

It is hard to believe that it is MARCH already! Here in Nova Scotia, it is definitely coming 'in like a lamb' as we have sunshine and warm temperatures and a slight breeze. It really feels good to have the windows opened and allow the fresh air inside. Even if we do see another spot of winter, I am grateful for these little breaks. It is a nice indication of what is yet to come. I spent yesterday working on some new designs as well as finishing up my "Day 3" of my Lynne...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1704: Leap Day Monday

02-29-2016 01:23 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 0 comments »

I am always looking for more time, it seems. Once every four years my wish comes true – we get an extra day to do things. Today is leap day and many consider it an 'extra' day. I will gladly take it!This year has been so busy from the start for me. I can't believe that we are through the first two months already. Time is certainly moving quickly – even more so than usual. I suppose it helps that I sit here on this February 29th with my window open slightly. I am enjoyi...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1673: Starting the Year With a Bang!

01-05-2016 01:07 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

The new year has just began and it has already started with a "BANG"! If these first few days are any indication of what is to come, we are on a wild and wolly ride!I am certainly not complaining though. Even though my old body is weary at this moment, it has been fun and I am very excited about all that the future is going to bring. Keith and I are both really thrilled. I missed blogging these past few weeks, but I am rather happy for the time off. While our holiday here was q...

Slow Days at the Shop. #6: Finally got to those stair rails

12-11-2015 09:36 PM by fatman51 | 3 comments »

Earlier in this series I mentioned a set of stair rails I was supposed to be building for one Mrs Customer, a couple of towns away from my town of Laporte. I got distracted by any number of things and just got back to them this week. The previous stair rails were built to match the existing porch rails. They had deteriorated sufficiently that they had become a hazard and Mrs Customer wanted them replaced in the same style, as her porch rails are in good shape. There were a couple ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1555: Smaller Bites

05-19-2015 11:38 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

Not everyone likes the same things. I know I am stating the obvious, but sometimes, as much as we do realize it, we forget that.I am no different. I see something I like and I find myself assuming that everyone I meet will like it as well. Be it food, a movie or even artwork or techniques. But having a partner like Keith helps keep me looking at things using realistic eyes. He and I are very opposite in our tastes and preferences. There is an old saying that 'opposites attract' and I ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1554: Bite Sized Pieces

05-18-2015 11:27 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

I had an absolutely wonderful productive weekend. I can actually see the light at the end of the tunnel regarding my haunted carousel project. As I have mentioned previously, this has been one of the largest projects that I have ever created with the intention of  offering the pattern for reproduction. I want it to be just 'perfect'. When looking at the carousel all assembled and painted, it can be quite intimidating. For those of you who look at it and say "Wow!&quo...

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 #1541: "Scary-Go-Round" Progress

04-24-2015 12:17 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

I was absolutely thrilled with the progress that I made yesterday on my "Scary-Go-Round" painted carousel project! After all the thinking and planning, I think it is coming together rather nicely. I was debating on whether I was going to put it aside for a little bit and do some other work, but I can't help but keep moving forward and forging ahead. As each element is completed, I find myself wanting to hurry and get to the next part. It is wonderful to see my ideas turning into...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1502: Working on Some New Designs

02-20-2015 01:46 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

Today's post will be a bit short, I am afraid. Not because I have been idle, but much the opposite. I find that when I design lately, I work on a certain theme and wind up doing several different projects in that style. I am not sure if that is good or bad. On one hand it makes me feel kind of 'wishy-washy' because I can't seem to settle on one version. On the other hand, it is nice to be able to design a project for scrollers, and then be able to offer a painter's ve...
