My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1076: Body Parts

07-08-2013 10:32 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 14 comments »

While I worked on my project most of the day, I still have another day to go before it is (hopefully) completed. I don’t really mind though, as it is coming out nicely and I also am learning how to use some new products and figuring out new techniques in applying them. I always like to look at each pattern as a lesson. Besides just the basic line work and construction of the project, I like to think that those who use my patterns are not only putting together the pieces, but learni...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #780: Cracking Up

08-05-2012 12:29 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 14 comments »

Well, I will start out this morning by saying that I think I am ‘cracking up.’ Maybe it’s because I have been using this crackle paint on my new snowmen, or maybe it is just me, but I am certainly not thinking the way I should be. Yesterday turned out to be a pretty good day. Besides another heavy day of traffic from the site (thank you everyone!) I spent the day painting the little snowmen pieces for the next pattern packet. As I showed yesterday, I am using a product...

The American Craftsman WorkShop #13: Reorganizing the Shop Day 4

10-09-2009 01:44 PM by Todd A. Clippinger | 13 comments »

Coming Down The Home Stretch Yesterday I finished the mud work where I removed the double doors. I also took the opportunity to patch the wall and ceiling where flying projectiles had left their impressions. I mounted a couple of hose reels that I bought several years ago. I had bought three originally and I mounted one but put the other two on the shelf. The first one broke and I tossed it during this round of organization. Now I have two but that is quite adequate for my shop. I us...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1050: Pretty Maids All in a Row

06-03-2013 10:31 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 13 comments »

What a busy, busy weekend I had! I can honestly say that I did very little fooling around, but I was still unable to get my projects finished to the point where I can pack them up and ship them out today. I am close, but I still need to take pictures and packing is somewhat of an “art” in itself and I need to be sure that everything will safely arrive, so it will be all completed today and I will put the call in for pickup first thing tomorrow morning. I don’t feel as...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1075: "Electric" Skeletons - Work in Progress

07-07-2013 10:34 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 12 comments »

For the past several weeks I have been working on Christmas ornaments, now I need to finish some Halloween projects. Do you ever wonder why I don’t know what time of year it is? I really don’t mind though, as I just seem to displace the holidays and celebrate any of them at any given time. It doesn’t bother me in the least. The magazines work are funny that way. While I projects for the holiday issue were due several weeks ago, the issue following the holiday one wi...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #262: Changing Gears

02-20-2011 02:38 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 12 comments »

Well, I suppose winter isn’t over yet. What started to be a sunny and relatively warm day yesterday turned overcast and cold. We even got another layer of snow. Nothing substantial though, just a reminder that we aren’t done with the cold weather quite yet. When I took my walk last night, the winds were swirling from all directions. The sky was mostly clear then, and even though there was light snow falling, you could see what seemed like thousands of stars in the sky. It wa...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #600: Kicking it Around

02-01-2012 01:13 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 11 comments »

I sometimes wonder if it is legal to have so much fun! I have had some really incredible days and there seems to be no end in sight. There is such a wide world of creative things to do that seeing each one come to life is just one thrill after another. Keith has been no slouch either. I see what he has come up with in his designing and I think he gets better every day. It is nice to know that you have a partner with so much talent. What is good is that we both enjoy different types of...

Making the Wren #1: Start, to almost finished

05-17-2012 06:17 PM by Donna Menke | 11 comments »

This is the finished bird that I started 2 weeks ago. It took about 24 hours to get it to this stage. I still need to make a mount for the bird, and I’d like to make it unique. That means no ‘bird on a stick’, but also not the trite ‘wren on the edge of the cup/bucket/shoe’ environment. I’ve been wracking my poor little brain trying to figure out something unique and good- that I can do in 3 weeks. Any suggestions.ideas would be appreciated. ThanksNow to th...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #632: New Project Just About Finished

03-04-2012 12:13 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 11 comments »

When I got up this morning, it was already getting light out. At first I thought I overslept, but in looking at the clock I realized that it was somewhere around the normal time I get up and it is just becoming light out earlier. Yes, spring is well on its way and soon winter will be behind us. Did we even have a winter? I hear of the fury of storms and tornadoes sweeping the US and I remember why spring is probably my least favorite season of the four. Growing up near Chicago, there w...
