Although reluctant to send out announcements I decided to after all, It made my Mother happy. Announcements are typically fancy embossed cards with calligraphy script topped with foil, or posed photos of a graduate. I was not excited with either of these options. I was not going to spend any money on fancy card stock, and I was not going to share a cheesy photo of my bearded mug for my family and friends. So they can hang on the fridge- so their friends could wonder who the old guy was.
I made my own postcards. And although I did not spend more than 12 bucks- I did spend 2 days modeling out a scene inspired by an artist I love. I am almost sure no one will spend more than a few seconds looking at this, or knew what went into it. But I still felt compelled to create something.
I have over a dozen hours in, and only spend 12 bucks… What a deal, I think.
