My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1649: Busy Work

11-06-2015 11:30 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

Yesterday was another busy day. I had so many parcels to package up and ship out that it took me most of the day to get everything done. I was fortunate to get to the post office by 4pm, as they closed at 5 and it took them nearly an hour just to process all the parcels. It was a good day. I am really pleased at the response to my little pumpkin surface. (SLDPK127 on my site) Talk about an unexpected response! I have another fairly large batch to cut again over the weekend as well. It...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1648: NOW I Can Call it Finished!

11-05-2015 01:08 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

These last few days have been both busy and fun. I am so thrilled at all the positive responses that I had regarding my little pumpkin shaped plaques. Before I could even finish them, I had lots and lots of orders for the surfaces. Many people ordered just one or two, as they were planning to paint their own designs on them. It felt good to have something that was liked so much by so many. I am really pleased. Needless to say, I have been quite busy these past couple of days. I hadn'...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1646: November, It Is!

11-02-2015 01:11 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

Yes – we are already into month 11 of the year.  How the heck did that happen? It seemed like yesterday that we were taking pictures of the nearly 4 feet of snow that had accumulated. Wow! How quickly this year has passed!But as I was outside the other day, on an overcast autumn afternoon, I couldn't help but notice the beauty. not only were the trees still half-filled with warm colored leaves, but the other plants and vegetation had also taken on deep, warm color. The air was ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1644: New Scrolling Patterns

10-29-2015 12:30 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

My goodness the mornings go fast! It is hard to believe that I have already been up a couple of hours. I love my mornings, as many of you already know, because it seems that I am able to accomplish so much in those first few quiet hours of the day. Yesterday was a really productive day. It was one of those (rare) times when everything went 'as it should' and I was able to tick off just about everything that I had on my list – and then some. I filled orders, did errands, hel...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1643: Online Learning

10-28-2015 12:39 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 0 comments »

When I think back to when I began painting and scroll sawing, I remember how different things were back then. I started both in the mid-90's and there was very little available online. I remember when we purchased our first home computer and I was thrilled at the thought of being able to type on it. My biggest excitement was that I would have a way to find and organize things like recipes and photos, as it was a time when my kids were young and my own little family was a focus. I never co...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1638: Meeting Deadlines

10-19-2015 12:36 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 0 comments »

It isn't often that I am able to proclaim that I am 'caught up' with things. Usually I have several things on my plate that are lined up that need to be doing. In the past month or so, I have had six major deadlines that I needed to meet for various things that I had committed myself to doing. I can't tell you the relief that I felt yesterday when I completed the last one right on the deadline. All of the others came in on time, as well.  It was as if a weight had been li...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1637: Becoming 'Real'

10-16-2015 11:06 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 8 comments »

I am finding that it is remaining darker for a longer period of time each morning when I awake. I have been up for over an hour, started my second cup of coffee, and have already been visited by all three of my cats this morning. (Pancakes is still here on my lap and Richard asleep at my feet, curled up in a ball on his little pillow with a blanket wrapped around him. I can hear him snoring quietly. It is so peaceful) The sun is just beginning to illuminate the eastern sky. This morning it is...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1636: Evolving

10-14-2015 12:50 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 8 comments »

As I sit down and write this morning, I find myself struggling a bit as to which direction I want today's post to head. It seems that lately there have been so many new avenues that I have been exploring that it is somewhat difficult for me to discuss them all here without having extremely lengthy posts. While some of you may not mind that, I realize that other just don't have the time, as they are much like me – exploring the different avenues and wondering which one would be t...
