It is no secret that I am a Mac.
Or that I adore Drew B.

So what happens when my squirrel loving girl needs a poster for Star of the Week?  The same poster that I have known about for over a month and somehow didn't get to until the day before it was due?

Spend a few minutes in Pages with their easy poster template.
Add in radtastic pictures from our day with Drew.
Stay away from the dreaded Comic Sans.
Send it to Costco one hour photo center.
Glue it to a foam core poster board.
Fool everyone I am a graphic designer by day, who totally planned ahead.
Which is HILARIOUS by the way!!!!

If the faux designer cred isn't enough to make you want to be a Mac, and sit in front of Drew's camera, I don't know what could.

  6. Julie,
    I'm thinking about getting a Mac because my PC just died. What do like about the Mac over a PC?
    Thanks!

  16. Your Star poster is way better than the one I recently saw at our school. It had mom's most recent boyfriend's mug shot on it. I wish I was kidding. They did, however cut the numbers at the bottom off, so there was some editing involved.
