My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1829: Changes

04-05-2017 02:19 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

It seems so long since I have posted, that I almost forgot how to do it. (Not really – but you get the point!)  The past month or month and a half have really been quite a change for both myself and my business. It is a good thing, but something that takes a bit of time to adjust to, and I find that I am finally feeling that I a getting 'caught up' and doing that. It has been a busy and crazy time for me, though. Things really started to get busy when Lynne Andrews lau...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1828: I'm Still Here!

03-22-2017 12:33 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

It seems like it has been forever since I posted a blog. As a person who posted a new blog nearly every day for over five years, it seems that I have been quite lax lately in keeping up. I apologize about that.It isn't that I am not busy. Quite the opposite is true. It seems that the floodgates have been opened and all of a sudden things are really kind of wild. That in itself is wonderful, but it is also kind of scary. While I am thrilled and excited about this recent 'growth spurt&#...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1825: Just "Wow"!

03-03-2017 02:27 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

I am very pleased with the way things are going these days. It seems that many of the things that I have been planning over the past several months are all coming into reality, and so far the result has been more than I could have ever asked for. I love working with other designers. (Are you seeing a theme here?) Having a "partner in crime" that you admire and trust really does make a difference. Not only are you motivated to do your absolute best, but you also learn a great de...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1821: Back in the Swing of Things!

02-17-2017 02:34 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

One thing about posting here less often – when I do post there is so much to share with you all! I feel like things are going fast forward again and I am back on the 'creative track' after a bleak two months for me. Those of you who have followed me for a while know that I usually try to look at the good side of even the not-so-good thing that happen. But sometimes, that just doesn't work. Try as I did, I found it hard to feel good about things.  It was time for me to s...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1820: Evolving

02-13-2017 02:02 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

We all work for certain goals in our lives. Be it personal or professional, there always seems to be something to strive for and give out lives purpose. I began my own business many, many years ago. I was in my 20's then and looking for a way to earn some extra income for my young family while doing something that I enjoyed. I had always loved 'making things' and thought that would be somewhat of a utopia for me. Justifying doing something that I love and being paid for it as...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1817: Habits

02-01-2017 12:19 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 8 comments »

As we begin a new month, I realize how quickly January has slipped by. Time has always seemed so relentless to me, but lately, I find that to be true more than ever. Many of you have noticed that I haven't been writing as regularly or as often as I used to. After over six years of daily posting, I find that I have, indeed, backed off a bit and have taken a bit of a break from it. It felt odd at first, but soon it became something of a 'habit' to NOT write (funny how that happ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1816: Some Updates for Our Site

01-27-2017 02:32 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

Good day to you all. I am still in my 'organizational mode' here and I am sorry to say that I have been so busy that is has been difficult to find time to blog. Add to that the many wood orders I have been receiving (thank you!) and the fact that both Keith and I are fighting this cold/flu thingy that is going around, and you will understand why I haven't posted. It has been a crazy month to start out the new year, to say the least. Our kitty Richard is doing better, though, ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1815: It's All in the Details

01-19-2017 01:58 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

It really feels good to get back to creating. The last month and a half went by so quickly. Between the holidays and the chaos of having my beloved pets ill, it seemed that with a blink of an eye the month of December and now most of January is behind us. I wish I could say that I was more productive. But I spent my time doing what needed to be done and taking the time I needed to deal with these personal things. I know I am working my way to a better place because there are so many idea...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1814: Back to Creating

01-17-2017 01:34 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

I spent the long weekend working on a new painting pattern set. While I have had this idea in my head for quite a while now, I had to just bring myself to do it. I don't know why I am always so timid about jumping into a new project. There is sometimes a fear that it won't come out like I envisioned it in my head. You would think that after all of these years of designing that I would be over those fears and have more confidence than that. But that isn't always the case. I fi...
