This past week I got to participate in my first GISHWHES. I'm sure your all probably sick of me going on about it but it was probably one of the most wonderful things I've done in a long, long time.
It is a week long extravaganza of creative energy that explodes into wacky projects like... Dissolve an iconic building over 2ft high made of sugar cubes (or marshmallows) (this by the way was a item idea by the awesome Felicia Day).
I learned a lot about myself doing GISHWHES. Things like - I can manage a team of people with some very strong personalities and I can patiently teach myself a new skill (origami) if I sit down and focus. Also that I can open myself up and try things that are outside my normal comfort zone. While I'm not going to wait for next year to try some some projects, I can't wait until next years 200+ item challenge!!
