Working on the iTunes/photo sofware



I'm working on the Discover Card

#44 I didn't win the HGTV dream home, the basketball bracket or the Glamour magazine contest. I won a free ice cream from THIS, but that doesn't count as winning because, in the end, they gave out coupons to everyone. I suck at winning...

And #38... instead of paying someone to design a fancy blog header, I designed one myself!!

Tell me, DO YOU LIKE IT??
