My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1852: Lots of Changes

08-28-2017 12:51 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

Try as I may, it just hasn't been possible for me to write and blog the way I used to. There just aren't enough hours in the day.  It is funny, but we work so hard to achieve a level of 'success' and sometimes we don't realize that along with those successes come added responsibility and time. It isn't as if I didn't know this. I just perhaps didn't foresee that the path to succeeding required as much additional time as it does. That isn't a compl...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1850: A Milestone

08-14-2017 12:43 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

A long time ago, I read that in order to achieve your goals, you need to first set them. As simple as it sounds, how many times is the list of things we wish to accomplish undefined and 'blurry'?  How many times are we flying by the seat of our collective pants and not really sure exactly what we intend to accomplish?  When this happens to me, I must admit that not only do I not achieve as much as I would like, but I feel a higher level of stress as well.About a year an...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1849: Getting Back in the Habit

08-10-2017 12:53 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

Once again it seems that I am catching up here on my blog posts. I am finding that it is harder than I thought to get back into the habit of writing each day. These days, every morning it seems that I wake up with a long list of things to do. I find myself putting off posting to just do a couple of things and before I know it, the morning gets away from me and I look to post 'tomorrow'. Then the cycle begins again. But I am determined to keep posting here and get back into the ha...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1848: New Pattern and some Changes on the Horizon

07-31-2017 01:56 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

Another week has passed and lots of new things are happening here at Sheila Landry Designs. Unfortunately, most of the things that we are doing don't make very good blog material. It is hard to document some of the day-to-day activities without putting everyone asleep. But trust me – I think it will be worth it for everyone. . . As many of you know, while I began my business and website (nearly 20 years ago) as a means to offer mostly scroll saw patterns to woodworkers, I ...

Shop Organization - Or Lack Of

07-10-2017 08:04 AM by Cathie Zimmerman | 11 comments »

About a year and a half ago I retired as a director of public safety. I’d served in the industry for 17 years and was ready for something different. I was absolutely ecstatic that my wife supported me retiring “early.” So, I leapt head first into the rabbit hole of this new hobby of mind: woodworking. Little by little I’ve found fantastic deals on the tools I needed (ok wanted lol). I can proudly say I have just about every power tool one could save up for. They are...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1845: New Projects (again!)

06-29-2017 12:19 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

While one would think that the reason that I haven't been blogging regularly is due to things slowing down, usually the opposite is true. As always, I have several things 'on the go' at once and many times I just don't know what to do first. Add to this that the weather here in Nova Scotia has been just beautiful, and not only does that lend itself to outdoor projects (yard work, etc.) but also really makes me want to head to the beach for the day.  Our home is so close t...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1844: New "Summer" Scatter Block Design

06-22-2017 01:12 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

After a great deal of rain over the past several days, yesterday (the first day of summer) was the first day that we had a day filled with sunshine in what seemed like a long time. It seemed appropriate. It also seemed appropriate that I was working on my new pattern that will include both the scroll sawn version as well as painting instructions for these cute and fun Summer Scatter Blocks (SLD537) that I showed as the 'woodworking version' in my last blog post: While I f...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1843: Finishing Up Some Projects

06-19-2017 01:21 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

Since most of you are also creators and crafters, I am sure you understand the dilemma that we all have in finding enough time to finish all the projects we begin.For me, it is usually a matter of not having enough time to complete everything that I want to complete. I see a new project and attack it with great enthusiasm, then one thing or another comes along and pulls me away from it, and I don't know when I am able to return to finish.  Trust me when I say that it becomes even mor...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1841: Classic Amy Joanne Halloween Ornament Club

06-14-2017 12:29 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 0 comments »

One of the best things about being a designer is that I get to 'hang around' other artistic and creative people. With all the negativity in the world these days, it is good to have a place to focus where only positive thoughts are allowed inside. That is how I treat my "Creative Place". Because my Creative Place is not a physical location and more or less a state of mind, I can be there anytime I wish, any day of the week. I only have to shift my thinking a bit and I ca...
