My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1801: New Patterns and UPDATE Time!

11-18-2016 01:46 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

It is hard to believe we are at the end of another week already. I have been trying my best to stay caught up with things, and for the most part, I think I am doing alright. I have long ago abandoned the idea having to do "x" number of designs per week/month/year. If I measured my productivity by those numbers alone, surely it would be depressing and I wouldn't be fair to myself. There is so much more that is involved in my day-to-day activity that takes a good deal of time.&nbs...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1795: Product Test - Krylon Gallery Series Fine Art Fixativ

10-28-2016 02:27 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

Today's post will be pretty much to the point. I have already been out and back and have a multitude of tasks that I need to work on today. It is all a great deal of fun though, and I wouldn't have it any other way. Most of you have seen my completed pastel drawing of my dear cat Pancakes: I have had such a wonderful response to it that I can't express my appreciation for your wonderful support. It really helps me feel as if I am heading in the right direction with my art ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1790: #1790 On the Ninth Day of Christmas . . .

10-18-2016 01:02 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 0 comments »

Yesterday was a good day in many respects. Not only did I feel as if I got a bit caught up with things, but I was feeling a bit more like myself again. (My productive self, that is!)  I think the two days away really did me a world of good. Not only was in inspired by seeing so much creativity and beauty, but I got a chance to not think about the business, my computer or any of my day-to-day tasks for a short time. While I missed having Keith travel with me, it was a comfort knowing that...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1787: Catching Up

10-11-2016 12:46 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

I feel as if I haven't done you all justice lately. Things have been quite busy here and I have been burning the oil late to try to squeeze more hours from the day. Because of that, something has to give and I find myself not getting up until after 6am in the morning. That may sound pretty early to some of you, but I always said that any time I put in before six was like a 'bonus' for me because I seemed to be so productive at that early hour. Any time I awoke that was after about...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1784: Settling In

10-03-2016 01:17 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

It was a crazy/busy weekend. That means it went perfectly with my crazy/busy life of late. As usual, there is just so much I want to accomplish and only 24 meager hours per day to fit everything in. And for some reason – those hours seem to get shorter every year. I think it is some kind of trick . . . I am writing later than usual today because I have already been to the gym and back.  I am not usually one of those who boasts about my gym visits, but lately, whenever I c...

Small workshop struggles with clutter; taking shortcuts

08-24-2016 04:21 AM by Jace McDaniel | 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...
