It's finally time to share our exciting news with you! In addition to our wonderful and talented Local Designers that you have grown accustomed to over the past three years, we have officially added to the Bella family! Please give a warm welcome to our newest additions!
After reading every single submission, and looking at every single project, and checking out every single blog, I think we came up with a fabulous team of designers. I have already started working with all of them, and they're such a great group of girls. I can't wait for you to "meet" them. We will be introducing everyone to you, and showing you some of their work, starting on Monday, September 26th!
I want to personally thank all of you that sent in your submissions to our Design Team call. I was amazed at the wonderful response we got, and loved seeing so many talented designers that wanted to be a part of what we do around here. The hardest part of having so many submissions come through my inbox, was that you all made it extremely difficult for us, when it came time to make those hard decisions. Truth be told, choosing between "too much talent", isn't such a bad "problem" to have ;) In fact, we have a huge handful of projects from some of you, that really stood out to us, when looking through your submissions. Keep your eye out next week, when we will be sharing those projects here on the blog. One of them just might belong to you ;)
I think I speak for Stephanie, as well as myself, in saying this was really one of the hardest things we've ever had to do. Hours and days of thought went into this, and we just want you to know how much we appreciate you sharing you designs and yourselves with us. We hope you'll all continue following us and supporting us, because our readers and our fans are why we do what we do!
And to all new Design Team girls and any of you that submitted, Stephanie has a little personal post up today on her blog, just for you. You can check it out HERE.
