Attempt Great Things

I sat at our post Christmas dinner table two years in a row expressing to my sister and brother in law how I wanted to pick up graphic design again and learn some new skills. I let a year go by attempting nothing new with digital art. Then the pandemic hit and I found myself with loads of time. “If not now, then when?” I thought. So, I became author, editor, illustrator, graphic designer, publisher, marketer, and public relations for a book that would not exist if I hadn’t said those words out loud over cake and coffee two years ago. This year those words were put to action and through the process I’ve learned more about myself, I’ve been humbled, and I’m encouraged to tell you to 🔊attempt great things! Even if you fail, the skills you’ll pick up are better than any class you could take. (📸 @gretchensaffles)
