Small workshop struggles with clutter; taking shortcuts

08-24-2016 04:21 AM by WoodworkinPROGRESS | 1 comment »

The past couple years ive developed a passion for woodworking. its my time where i can get so focused on my projects and completely block out anything the world is throwing at me at any given time. I guess you can say the craft itself is basically my therapist, only if i were to substitute a real therapist id probably save about 10x the money that i do on tools, but they are beginning to get to the point where they are starting to pay themselves off. In my opinion where the true passion for ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1757: Details

08-05-2016 12:55 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

I really am a sucker for details. while I do like all kinds of designs, I really think that details are what set certain designs apart. As I look at my list of favorite designers, I think the ones with the extra 'touches' and fine details are really the ones that head my list. I am certainly drawn to them. I believe that is the appeal of the "12 Days" set of ornaments that I am painting by Lynne Andrews. Her work is a beautiful combination of kind of a 'refined coun...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1755: #1755 Some New Patterns

08-03-2016 12:39 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 0 comments »

Over the past several months, it has been difficult to get what some call our 'real work' done. Both Keith and I have been torn in so many directions. But finally (FINALLY!) it seems that things are getting back on track and we are once again falling into a somewhat "normal" pattern (whatever that is!) It is a welcome change. Being self-employed has its plusses and minuses. Obviously, I think there are far more plusses, or I wouldn't be doing what I do. I get to do ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1751: On the Sixth Day of Christmas . . .

07-27-2016 11:51 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

As most of you are going through probably the hottest time of the year, I am here in Nova Scotia humming Christmas carols to myself and working on Christmas ornaments. Things are going just as I planned. Many of you know that I have been working on a year-long project of creating no less than six sets of Lynne Andrew's "12 Days of Christmas" ornaments (you can purchase the pattern book here: Christmas Blessings Pattern Book – or come and join our Facebook page dedicat...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1747: Slowly Returning to "Normal"

07-18-2016 11:57 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 0 comments »

If this move has taught me anything, it is taught me that things don't happen overnight. Even if things appear to fall into place when looking in from the outside, there is usually a huge amount of work to make that happen. I am beginning to think that the more seamless that change appears to be, the more work it required to get there. "Effortless" takes more effort than we can imagine. It has been over three weeks since we made the big move to our new place. (I actually ha...

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 #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 &...
