I appreciate each of you who have expressed an interest in a Polly spot. Each year during MOC we have a very difficult decision in choosing our next Polly. This is not a decision we take lightly. We take a large number of factors into account, including the needs of the store at that time, the needs of the Polly team, style of scrapper, forum participation, gallery activity, member interactions, and a long list of additional pieces for consideration. There is no "right" person to become a Polly. I see many of you commenting that you are not "worthy" of a Polly spot, but please know that is absolutely NOT true. The Lilypad has a diverse group of designers creating for a diverse group of scrappers, and our CT needs change all the time. We know that each year, there will be a large number of our community who, while they are happy for who is chosen, are also discouraged that it wasn't them. And because of that, choosing our new Polly is easily the hardest thing Laura and I do here at the Pad. Because each of you are important members of our community. And we don't like to disappoint any of you. Please know that, Polly or not, we appreciate and value each and every one of our community members.
