Others here have commented about Tkinter.  I'm not a professional programmer, and I struggled with Python2 and Tkinter for a while.  It worked, but it was a struggle.
A few years ago I started using Glade and Python3 (and gi.repository).  Much easier, much less Python code, much easier to maintain.
Not that I'm much of a critic of Tkinter, just that the alternative is simpler and easier.
