While exploring web development, I wanted a design platform to help me put my ideas down on paper before starting to code. A friend of mine suggested Figma. This amazing platform helps you design wireframes and design your site before you start your adventure. If you are like me, putting your ideas down BEFORE you start is essential.

In looking through the basics, I discovered my old nemesis, the pen tool. When I saw my foe, I had a choice: give up and run away or sit down and learn. In writing this article you might have guessed, I have chosen to learn. I have found https://bezier.method.ac/ to be an amazing resource if you, like me, were terrified of the pen tool. As I learn this tool, if you have any resources or things that you think will help, please let me know! I would love to go on this journey together!
