contest winner: Dennis!

While some of the Design Aglow team were enjoying dinner here in Venice last night (so unfair!), I was having a hard time picking the winner. So, to be totally fair (since we had so many wonderful entries) I let my four year old pick one this morning. I think he did a great job even though he can't even read! Congrats to our reader Dennis!

*Dennis please email me at lena@designaglow.com to claim your prize, any item from the Design Aglow shop! (and I know everyone wants you to tell us what some of your notes said, right?)

Dennis Says: My plans are to take my wife to a nice lunch and then as a family we are going to the City Museum for some fun and adventure. Also we will be opening our valentine box this evening where we have been dropping little notes to each other for the past several weeks. It is such a joy to read what the little ones have on their mind and decide to write down and put in the box. We sometimes find a gum wrapper or two.

Happy V Day everyone....don't forget to call your Mama.

And then the reality of making a living at it started to creep in, and you became bound to jobs you didn’t really want to do, because you needed the money. We’ve been there, and yep, it stinks.

Where's The Money?

Here’s a saying we find really annoying: “do what you love, and the money will follow. Umm, nope. If we asked every photographer out there if they are working hard, they would say yes. But if we asked every photographer out there if they are raking in the big bucks, many would say no.
