Getting and Keeping Ideas
There are some days where I just cannot come up with a new idea for a carving. But there are other times that an idea will just "pop" into my mind. I've learned the hard way that I may not remember this idea long enough to carve it. Dang, some times I forget what I went to the grocery store to buy unless I write it down. I suggest getting one of those small little pocket note books/pads and make a habit of carrying it with you, along with a pencil with an eraser. In fact, I have this set up an the night stand, and in my carving kit too. As these ideas "pop" into your head, sketch them and/or describe them in you little note book/pad.
