Keep Calm And Make On

The UK’s Queen Elizabeth II has been on the throne for over 60 years, a milestone being celebrated in a huge weeks-long “Diamond Jubilee” bash. Doing anything for 60 years is an incredible achievement, and must have required a lot of patience and perseverance.

Sometimes the process of making something or trying a new project that requires completely new skills can make a person feel like they’ll never hit the finish line. But then you take a step back and see you’ve just got two wires crossed or a syntax error throwing things off. And then the victory is sweet.

So in honor of that lady with the handbag and the patient maker in all of us, here’s scottperezfox‘s upload of the classic1 World War II-era poster, that reminds us to “Keep Calm and Carry On“. Make one for your desk, or take the design and tweak it for your purposes.
