My Business Software Professor Would Be So Proud

So what do you think of the new title header? I made it myself, and without that dern high falutin' Photoshop that everyone is always raving about too. (Not to say that I didn't try Photoshop, and vectors, and whatever else goes along with that...I just didn't know enough to make it work). Cause while everybody else I knew in college was majoring in graphic design, I was a business major. And business majors don't do Photoshop. But then I said to myself, "Self. You should not be all discouraged because everyone else in the world knows Photoshop and you do not. You should play to your own strengths". And for me, that's my old friend Microsoft Excel. So I imported some pretty pictures from the Interweb, (Pictures of fabric swatches if you're curious), twiddled with them in Excel, and viola! Instant header!

Not too shabby for a business major, no?

I just thought you had so much fun wallpapering your bathroom that you just kept going to your computer! Looks really cool. Keep up the good work.

The text is a little hard to read against the textured background. Otherwise, two thumbs up!

It's really great... And I wish my keyboard was working. I have no exclamation point. Monkey spilled chocolate ovaltine on it. So, just imagine there's an exclamation or two after the word 'great', k? tkx

The header's pretty nice. Hehehe. Though it takes time to master Photoshop, once you're good at it, designing elements like this will be as easy as pie. This is a great work using the trusty Excel.
