A little bit of this...

Evidently it's book season, I keep getting booksale advertisements to design. Designing things is a lot of fun when I have time to do it nicely and I get a fun store to design for. A lot of the advertisements are for farm equipment or building supplies. There's only so much excitement to be had when you're designing an ad for wood.

Sometimes ads are a little too informative. I just finished an ad that had more information on why there were two addresses on the advertisement than on what they're advertising!

And there's the ad I'm working on right now. It's a valentine's sale and they want a border (boo!) and rather than just telling people what is on sale, they're promising that there will be sale stickers on something. It might be x, y, or maybe even z and it the items will be different, different days. But the advertiser has decided that it's much better to potentially dissapoint the customer than to simply let them know what the specials are.
