IF- electricity
21 days of creative exercises day 6


Oops.. think I missed one days of exercising heehee..
And this is the idea from the history of bulb from Thomas Alfa Edison, I captured a few paragraph about his childhood stories.


In school, the young Edison's mind often wandered, and his teacher, the Reverend Engle, was overheard calling him "addled." This ended Edison's three months of official schooling. He recalled later, "My mother was the making of me. She was so true, so sure of me; and I felt I had something to live for, someone I must not disappoint.

very inspiring.. :)

To love an idea is to love it a little more than one should.

Adorable faces. Great job showing joy in Edison's face without even showing his smile - nice eyes and upturned cheeks.

Clever and so "bright" and funny! I love that little bit of insight into Edison. I can also just imagine him getting the idea from a firefly, hee hee. Great post Gina!
