Tip For Us With Older Tired Memories

Evert now and then when I start to carve a Santa I may end up with the nose too small for his head. Some times I get out of my proper sequence when carving eyes. Some times I forget to ware a thumb guard. If want ears exposed, I'll forget and make a cut that will not give me the necessary room for the ear. Regardless of the reasons for these omissions and forgetfulness, I am now using a 3 x 5 card, with reminders. I am using a big marker to write a message on the 3 x 5 card. Just a one liner, like CARVE THE NOSE LARGER. I will lay the card by my strop where I will see it at all l times. Anything that I kind of forget when I get into the carving, I remind myself of.
