Hi – I’m in the same situation as I started 2 years ago and stop halfway though the first package. I’m just going to use the updated course but continue where I left off as the web site allows me to download the updated version. It make sense to me to continue as it I hadn’t paused my studies. So much got in the way for me and I’m so excited to get back to it. I looked through my course journal and I had forgotten how much I had written down and surprised myself at the illustrations I had done – a few were quite good! 🙂 All my best.
