IT’S Margaret’s birthday tomorrow and although I have a present sorted I still need to make a card and a wee extra surprise.
First, the card…some design, some cutting, some sticking and, after a couple of epic fails, I finally get it right.
For the wee extra I want to make some heart-shaped stud earrings with a black acrylic edge and red, sparkly-finished wood centres. The design part is easy but working out the kerf – ie: the amount of wood and/or acrylic eaten away by the ‘cut’ is more challenging and I end up with a pile of broken acrylic ‘outsides’ where I’ve tried to snap in a centre that’s a baw-hair too big. I eventually get them done and am really pleased with the result.
After a quick pizza for lunch I start editing some of the video clips from recording tracks for the new album at home and mixing at Chem19 Studios with Paul Savage. I’ll use it in tonight’s livestream into my Wildcats Facebook group then make it public later in the week.
Suddenly the day is done and I’ve not even managed out for a walk – mind you, it’s been pretty grey and wet out there today!
There’s just time to plan the Wildcats’ livestream before an evening Zoom session with one of my guitar students..then it’s straight into the livestream….
