Today I felt like I wasn’t the brighted bulb on the tree. First, I was having problems with my measurements (math was not my strong subject). Then, I had a brain block when I was trying to design something for my brooch piece. I wanted to stretch out and do something different, but I ended up with circles. However, many mistakes later, they ended up being drastically different than they started out to be. I hadn’t done tube rivets since my beginning metals class so I kept stopping and questioning my work. Luckily, my bench neighbor is a teacher who patiently helped me along and gave me encouragement.
