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 #1540: Carousel Canopy and Stands for the Figures

04-23-2015 11:58 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 8 comments »

I have never been really 'fast' when I am creating a new design. Whether it is the process of making one of my own creations or following the instructions of someone else, things just seem to take me a long time. Often people mention how quickly I produce new projects, and I find that rather odd. It seems that more times than not, I take quite a bit longer than I anticipate to complete anything that I am working on. I think that I can attribute the illusion of me working so quickly wi...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1538: The Cast of Characters

04-17-2015 11:57 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

I skipped posting yesterday because I felt there was little new that I had to show you. I know that sometimes when that happens, I find something interesting for a 'filler post', but I didn't want to take the time to think in other directions. I was on a mission. The new project that I have begun working on has consumed me. I find myself thinking about it most of the waking hours of my day, and even as I awake momentarily in the middle of the night to roll over. It has been a...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1533: "Nevermore" Painting Pattern (Finally!)

04-09-2015 11:52 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

You know – there are days when I really do get mixed up! (Yes – I know! Some of you think EVERY day!) With all the different things I am doing and all the calendars, dates and reminders that I give myself, sometimes things do happen to slip by my steel trap of a mind. I suppose I am only human! Last autumn, I created a painting pattern that turned out to be one of my favorites. It was a bit 'darker' than my usual cheerful pieces, but I think that is what I liked ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1514: SHEEP!!!!

03-11-2015 12:29 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

It is NOT snowing today.It is hazy and dull outside, and I can see the tops of the bare trees waving slightly in the breeze. There are still mountains of snow – some drifts 3-4 feet high – and they are no longer that beautiful pristine white, but rather rather dirty looking and grey. As I look out to my car, however, I notice that the banks of snow that surround it no longer have it completely encased. They have pulled back quite a bit, leaving a gap between the wall of snow and t...

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...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1499: After the Storm

02-17-2015 12:51 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

After the last few days of snow and wind, it finally seems to have calmed down here. As I look outside this morning, everything is calm and the sun is shining brightly. What a beautiful winter day it is! I am happy to say that our winter storm wasn't that bad for us. While I know it was a hard on many (and I feel badly for that) we were fortunate that we were safe and warm and power was uninterrupted throughout the duration. Adele was able to get to the wharf finally and check on the...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1493: Working Weekend

02-09-2015 12:57 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

I didn't post this weekend because I was in the middle of several different projects. We are hoping to do our site update this week and I had some ideas for new scroll sawing patterns that I wanted to work on. I did that along with working on painting the first piece of furniture that Keith built for our reorganizing project. If you remember, the first  piece was a printer stand that would also hold the bodies of our two computers and also the modem and router: Since this is ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1488: "Art Play Date" 2015 Launched!

02-01-2015 12:51 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

Well, it seemed like January just flew by! What has started out to be a mild winter has turned into a lot of snow, wind and sleet. I think that yesterday we had the biggest snowfall yet for this year, and they are predicting 30-40 more cm of snow tomorrow.  Winter is definitely here.I think the month went by quickly for me because I had so much to do. My work schedule was even what I would consider heavy – and it takes a lot for that to be the case. I had several deadlines to get m...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1487: One More Version of Ice Skates

01-31-2015 01:45 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

One of the biggest problems that I have is deciding on a 'version' of how to make a certain design. I suppose that I have been designing so long, that I realize that not everyone has the same taste and preferences. It is rare that when I think of something new to make that I only think of it in one way. Since I design things for a living, I always try to appeal to the most people possible. This often means including more than one style of the same item, and allowing the customers to c...
