Let the Voting Begin!!

I took Honors Calculus in high school, and it wasn't this hard. Derivative integers and the Intermediate Value Theorem? Pssht. Child's Play. Candy Land. Nerf ball.

I took Constitutional Law in undergrad with Dr. John Kilwein... and it wasn't this hard. Marbury v. Madison with the man whose final exams put the "kill" back in....well....Kilwein? Pish Posh. A walk in a flowery meadow compared to this. A cool summer's day. (PS: Dr. Kilwein if you ARE by some chance reading this, I hope you know you kicked my butt... and I am thankful to you everyday for it).

I took a Federal Income Tax exam in law school after a stunning bout of stomach flu, and it still wasn't this hard. Capital gains and subsection 1031(h)(1) of the Internal Revenue Code? Ok, well those still make me want to throw up today. But it wasn't as hard as this! :)

My inbox was flooded yesterday with fabulous design boards from around the country. There was so much designy-goodness dripping in each and every one, that Julia and I spent hours just drooling at the screen. And we had to narrow them down to just five?? Yea, NOW you see just how hard this was. It was grueling. It was torture. It was absolutely excruciating to close those photoshop windows one by one. But in the end, five stood strong. We picked them not so much for color palette or specific items (although there are some pretty fantastic items in there), but for the overall vibe we're going for in the room.

And now, we're opening up the voting up to you, our readers, to pick the ultimate winner. The top five finalists in no particular order are:


Betsy Jo:



Jil:



Karen:



Heather:



And Carly:



Congratulations guys!! So go on, get your vote on! To the top five finalists, I would encourage you to blog/fb/tweet it and help get the vote out. C'mon, there's a $100 Home Depot card on the line here. And I have a feeling this one is going to come down to the wire. :)

**Voting will close at 5pm EST on Friday!!! So hurry!

***ETA: Oh yea, we almost forgot to congratulate the winner of our Ice Cream contest, Miss Courtney Ann with bubble gum flavored!! Congrats Courtney! Just shoot us an email at justin@justinmarantz.com with your addy & we'll get those Godivas right out to ya!
