Point of View: Big News!

Last Friday I mentioned that we had some exciting Point of View news coming soon. In case you missed last week's Point of View reveal, we had to say good-bye to two members of Point of View. We wish Camilla and Michelle the best of luck with their creative endeavors. But as you know, when one door closes, another door opens, and I am very excited to announce that we now have a new member! The newest member of Point of View is Ashlee from I'm Topsy Turvy. Not only is she crafty, she's also a very talented cake decorator. I'm really excited to see what Ashlee brings to the group, and I think she's going to make a great addition.

The theme for March is "Pinterest"! This is a great excuse to start that project you pinned months ago and get it ready to link up at the end of the month. And there's even more news! We've decided that we'd like to get all of you more involved in Point of View. We want YOU to decide the themes for the rest of the year! We'd love to hear your suggestions. Is there a particular theme that would inspire you to start or finish up a project you've been wanting to do? Let us know! What would you like to see on Point of View this year? We want to hear from you. Please leave your theme ideas in the comments below. We will put together a list of the most requested themes from all of our blogs. Another change? We're going to publish the themes for the year in advance. That way you'll know what's coming up and when.

And another little bit of news... we are opening up our Point of View guest list again! Last year we asked who would be interested in being a guest member of Point of View, and the response was overwhelming! We are still working though the names on that list, but it's time to invite more of you to join us. If you are interested in being a guest on Point of View one month, please email me with "POV Guest" in the subject line. Please include your blog URL in your email. Once we compile a list of guests, I will get back to you with available dates. If you emailed me last year, you are still on the list, and I will be contacting you soon!

This month marks the one year anniversary of Point of View. I really like being a part of this group, and I am excited to see how the group evolves over the next year. Hope you'll join us on the journey. Have a great weekend, and don't forget to leave theme suggestions below!

P.S. - I am finishing up a follow-up post on alternatives to Picnik. I found out some really interesting stuff, and I can't wait to share. That post will go up in the next couple of days.

P.P.S. - What do you think of the new blog look? I've been working on it for months and finally got it finished up this week. My sidebar was getting unruly :) More on all of that next week.

Love the new look- will you help me with my sorry little blog? ;) I'm especially loving the cute pic of you with the balloon caption. Hi right back. ;)

The new look is GREAT! Clearly you've been working hard behind the scenes and having guest POV's is such a fun idea - love it.
