My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1744: Routines

07-12-2016 10:55 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

Routines. We need them for order, guidance and pacing. They help us set and keep goals and they keep us organized and productive.  Some people don't like routines, but I am one who embraces them completely. Perhaps that is from being around cats all of my life, as they are big fans of routines, as are many animals. The past several weeks have been anything but "routine" for me. From the time we first saw our new home early in March, I have been a bit out of step. ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1743: I'm BACK!!

07-11-2016 10:58 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 9 comments »

It has been a crazy couple of weeks! Even though I didn't get much 'work' done, I don't think I have ever worked harder in  my life. Perhaps it is because I am a touch older now (EGADS!) Or maybe it was because this was the first time that I had to not only move myself, but a moderately successful business as well. It certainly entailed much more than I had anticipated. But all went well and there were barely any hiccups in the process. We were fortunate in so many r...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1742: The Move is ON!

06-20-2016 01:57 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 8 comments »

It is funny how something that has been a habit so long can fall out of being a habit so quickly. In the past couple of weeks, so many habits that I have acquired over time have been greatly altered. I expect it will be like that for the next few weeks, as we received the KEYS to our new place and are going to finally be able to start moving things there! How exciting this is for us!I am filled with a wide range of emotions right now. I go from being excited and happy to being completely over...

Past and Present Projects #1: Picture slide show

06-19-2016 10:29 PM by WoodCrafts67 | 2 comments »

Here is a video of my past and present projects. I thought it would be a lot easier to do it this way to show you some of my work. All projects from wood I have used either pallets or recycled wood from old furniture and off cuts I had laying around in the workshop. I really like to make and build many things as you can see. I hope you like what you see. I really enjoyed building everyone of these projects. I am currently working on a Homemade Bandsaw a drill press and a routing machine...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1741: Organization

06-10-2016 12:20 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

As I mentioned before, the next several weeks will be quite busy for Keith and I. We are in the process of preparing to move in the next few weeks and there is a great deal of things we need to do. It isn't that we were unorganized while living in our current place, but rather that we are expanding our living space to nearly four times what we have today. Needless to say, we are beyond excited. While Keith and I think differently on several issues (and what couple doesn't?), one ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1740: A Little Break

06-06-2016 01:20 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

In preparing to move in a few weeks, you can imagine that things are a bit different in my life these days. Even though the 'big day' is a couple of weeks away, my general routine is rather 'off' and my mind has been in many different directions. For the first time in years, I feel as if I am not producing designs like I should.This isn't a matter of "Designer's Block" or anything of that nature. I have more ideas than I have time to create. It is more like &...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1739: 12 Days of Christmas - Day 5 Complete!

06-02-2016 12:44 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

I have been busier than usual the past couple of weeks, and I expect that this will continue for the near future as we prepare our move into our new house. There is so much to consider and so much organizing to to! We are both really excited about it, but it is also very time consuming to plan and think things through and also figure out and purchase what we will need to make the move as seamless as possible regarding our business. Since we no longer will be both working in one room, the...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1737: A New Series of Designs - Almost Ready!

05-30-2016 12:58 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 7 comments »

It seems like I haven't blogged forever. Even though I have only missed for a week, it feels like much more time has passed than that. It has been over six years since I began posting nearly every day, and breaking away from that routine has been difficult, but I feel for now it is necessary. We are going though many changes at this time. Keith and I have made the decision to move into a larger place and there is much preparation that needs to be done to make our move go smoothly. Fo...
