My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #865: New Dimensional Ornaments!

11-04-2012 12:01 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 17 comments »

Today is one of my favorite days of the year. Those of you who read know that I frequently wish that my days had more hours in them, and today is the one day of the year that my wish actually comes true. A 25 hour day! Now how I am going to use that extra hour is hard to decide. There are so many wonderful directions that I am heading in right now that I could choose from a variety of tasks. Yesterday was a very productive and happy day for me. All week I was working on a new ornament ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #611: Wrapping Things Up

02-12-2012 11:34 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 15 comments »

It snowed last night. Not quite the storm that they were predicting, but then again it never seems to be. I think that is how we become complacent and then when we are least expecting it we get hit. I can’t really tell how much yet because it is still dark out, but everything is white and I haven’t heard the scraping of the plows against the pavement yet. So I expect it isn’t too much. I am thinking that I would like to take a walk in the woods today. I haven’t d...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #888: Little Sleds Finished!

11-27-2012 11:21 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 13 comments »

Today was one of those mornings that I couldn’t wait to get going. I got up a little earlier than usual, and went back to bed, thinking that I would get ‘one more sleep.’ But lying there and thinking about what I was going to do today was too much for me and I just had to get up and get started. I had a good day yesterday, and got lots of odds and ends done in addition to getting my little sleds finished up. Once again, I used the photo box that Keith made and had some re...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1222: Fine Tuning

01-18-2014 12:22 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 12 comments »

Yesterday seemed to fly by faster than usual. I had so many wonderful things to work on that even though I got an earlier-than-usual start, it seemed before I knew it time had slipped by me and it was dark and I was running out of steam. After I posted my blog here yesterday, I found I wasn’t really satisfied with the photographs of the little ballerinas that were wearing the tulle skirts. The pictures (while clear) seemed to have not shown the skirts very well at all. I decided...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #95: Twinkle, Twinkle Little Stars

09-06-2010 01:41 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 12 comments »

Finally. A Monday that people like. With the Labor Day holiday both here and in the United States, most everyone in these countries have the day off. However, with the Labor Day holiday comes the realization that summer is coming to a close and winter is not far off. I am certain that there will be plenty of grumblings about that on my facebook page. They already have started. I am ready for fall and winter. The past week was enough summer for me. I guess I found something that I di...

Segmented Christmas Tree Ornament

12-12-2009 07:04 PM by darryl | 11 comments »

After completing the Segmented Vessel, I decided I’d make the segments on my next piece a little thinner than the 3/4” previously used. Since we are all in the Christmas spirit, I thought I’d make a new ornament for our tree this year. The segments in this piece are 1/4” thick, and this piece includes a total of 92 segments. Here’s the before picture of the ornament blank glued up on the lathe. After turning, sanding and the first coat of wipeon polyurethan...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #887: What Was I Thinking?

11-26-2012 12:38 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 11 comments »

Any of you who know me know that I tend to be an optimist at times. You also know that I sometimes underestimate the time it takes me to do something. Well it seems that yesterday my optimism collided with my underestimation and I made the mistake of saying that my sled ornaments would be completed today. Oh, they are cut and sanded. Everything came out really nice I thought and worked like it should. As a matter of fact, I found a great deal of pleasure in cutting these ornaments out. Wh...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #608: Please, Please Me

02-09-2012 11:59 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 11 comments »

I made a great deal of progress yesterday cutting out the little shamrocks. I had some things to do in the morning and didn’t wind up really starting to set up things until just after lunch, so I got a later start than I intended. Still, I was able to cut out all 15 pieces (double stacked) and at least finish with that for the day. I didn’t get to sanding them and oiling them, but I will be doing that today, as well as cutting out the 15 smaller versions which can be used for p...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1385: Making Lemonade

08-20-2014 12:38 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 11 comments »

Thoughout my life, I have practiced and somewhat mastered the art of finding good in most anything. Even when something bad occurs, I have myself trained to try to find a positive slant in it. Some people call this 'optimism' and I suppose that is as good a word as any to describe my attitude toward life. I think it is a good habit to follow, as looking for something positive in a even a not-so-good situation often changes our entire disposition and more often than not, we surprise ou...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1435: "Unstuck"

11-02-2014 01:12 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 10 comments »

Well, it appears that I am on the 'other side'. Whatever was causing my creative block has moved on, and things are once again moving in a positive direction. I wish I knew what caused those little hiccups in my creative process. As I said the other day – I think all designers and creative people go through it at one time or another. When we are in the midst of that 'creative block' we simply can't understand why nothing seems to feel right. Is it mood? The weat...
