My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #386: Moving To Another Deadline

06-30-2011 12:07 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

I am kind of working in several directions at once these days. That tends to happen when deadlines are coming up and we are in crunch time. I worked on my spider web candle tray and got it sanded and oiled. I also picked on the little charm pieces and got them to where I wanted them. At first I did them and I think they were a bit large. I wanted them smaller than the larger spider that I showed yesterday, but they had to be big enough that the legs wouldn’t be even more fragile a...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #385: Along Came a Spider . . .

I worked on another candle tray yesterday. I did decide to go with the Halloween them for the time being. Whether it is the right or wrong decision, only time will tell but I wanted to go with my gut this time just to see what would happen. The design I came up with was pretty simple. In cutting it, I found that it was on of the easiest things I have made in a long time. (really) Simple isn’t bad thougha (we talked about that before) and it will be very easy for a new scroll sa...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #382: Meet Fiona - The Halloween Witch (Pretty Scary!)

I had such a good time yesterday finishing up my latest project. Each step and addition I made to it made it look a little better. Building stuff like this is so much fun and I really get a lot of satisfaction out of making these little replicas. The hardest thing for me to do was to be patient and let the glue dry for each step. I knew if I didn’t wait, I would have a mess on my hands. I forced myself to walk away after each piece or set of pieces was glued and try to get busy on ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #373: "Roasted Birch" - a New Discovery for Me

06-17-2011 01:50 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 10 comments »

I love when I am so excited about work that I can’t wait to get out of bed to start the day. It may sound silly to some of you, but it does happen a lot lately. I was lying in bed thinking about the new projects and I couldn’t wait to finish working on them today. What has got me all worked up, you ask? It seems that I have stumbled upon a type of wood that I had never worked with before and used it out of necessity and now that the project is finished, I absolutely love it....

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #372: Two New Designs

06-16-2011 12:58 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

Finally it is a day when I woke up to a clear sky and sunshine. It has been quite overcast and rainy for the past several days. I think the last time it was sunny out was Saturday when I washed the car. I have been waiting for a bright day so I can take some pictures of the latest projects with some natural light. Usually I use artificial light, but I like to experiment with both, as some things just look better with natural light. One day I will have to get some photography lights, but n...
