« Part 1097: Monday is a Good Day to Organize Part 1098 of My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer series Part 1099: Finishing up Drawing »

Today, I am sharing a blog with you. Several weeks ago I was honored enough to be asked by Steve Ramsey of Woodworking For Mere Mortals to participate in his “Inspiration” project. I have admired Steve since I first saw his videos here on Lumberjocks, and I have become a loyal follower. Steve brings woodworking to everyone, without using fancy tools or techniques and has a wonderful sense of humor in his presentation. He breaks things down into wonderfully simple processes and helps everyone believe that “I can make that, too!” He is an incredible to the woodworking community and has gained the respect of thousands of woodworkers all over the world.

I am very thrilled to be a part of his Inspiration Project. You can read my article I contributed here:

I know you will enjoy Steve’s entire site. There is a huge amount of wonderful information, projects and entertaining videos as well!

Thanks, Steve! I think you are AWESOME! :D

Besides being an artist, you are a gr8 writer, Sheila. Steve is a gr8 entertainer. I enjoy his videos, and comic outlook on stuff also. He is very good at what he does.

I enjoyed your writing about inspiration. I think in this modern world that TV has taken away a lot of individual thinking. At least when it was radio you could imagine what was taking place.
That takes me back to a time as a child when together with some neighbor boys, we created our whole community with nothing but some blocks of wood, some used nails, string and bottle caps. We had vehicles, fences, roads a whole complex. Not a single thing was newly purchased.

Great write up Sheila! Steve Ramsey is a favorite of mine. It was through his videos I found my way to LumberJocks (or was it Steve Good?)... Its funny how I can watch short video after short video but can’t make myself hardly start watching a longer vid.
I find that ‘walking away’ from something, like a lack of inspiration or a knotty problem, helps to clear my mind and let it take a different path than the one I was trying so hard to force it down. That’s when the note pad is handy to jot down the idea when the light flashes (gotta write it down before the light fades and its gone!).
Thank you for sharing your inspiration. I really enjoyed reading! Have a great day!

Thank you all very much! Yes, Steve was one of the first things that really got me hooked here on Lumberjocks. His fun videos are entertaining to so many and he is also very good at showing us how to build things. He is a great asset to our woodworking community and he is a great guy besides, always looking to promote other woodworkers. I am very humbled that he would even consider me for the article, and I am glad he thought enough of me to do so. :)

I truly appreciate all of your support and nice comments. You are all very inspiring to me every single day!

What a great article Sheila – an inspiration to all! You are right, inspiration is everywhere – we just have to keep all our senses open. Keep creating!
Had a great day with my great niece and great nephew doing some painting in the back yard. They were inspired!

Morning, Anna! You sound like you had a busy day! I love painting with kids (or scrolling for that matter too!) Kids are like sponges and they are just looking for knowledge. What a cool time you all had! I bet they will remember it forever!

We still have autumn like weather here. It looks to be another beautiful sunny and warm, but not hot day. I couldn’t ask for better!

Have a great one yourself! :)
