I told myself I would wait until I finished my current projects before taking on something new. I have a ukelele to practice, code to write, latin plant names to memorize, a full-time job, freelance work — oh, and friendships to maintain.
Finishing my current projects, I could then guilt-free start a new one + that would be the reward! Except, I totally worked calligraphy into both of my current design projects – necessitating the need to start NOW. Eighty-odd dollars later, here I am. Not all that much of an investment into learning something new, but you know… I do this a lot … and often.
