Good Morning…As a novice I make all kinds of mistakes and have problems caused by my gift of bone-headedness and lack of intuitive skills. And then there are the mystery problems that I can’t figure out. Even when I think evrything is going OK I can suddenly find myself fighting with the project. And you’re absolutely right…work through the problems because they are a test of persistance and (ahem) ‘creative problem solving’ as well. Is that a sign holder? It looks great from here! The outcome certainly was worth the troubles. Very sharp!

I think most people have done jobs that at some point, were nearly bundled into the back of the car and thrown in the river.
All you can do is persevere, dust yourself down, and get back on that horse.
