I can’t believe it’s April already and time for a brand new theme! I am a little sad to say goodbye to our amazing ethics month but I know we are going to have a great time with our Spring Cleaning theme. I don’t know about you but I get spring madness every year; I open up all the windows, hang laundry on the line & get organized. This is also a great time to do some housekeeping for your business-fix up your product photos, update your about page, give a new look to tired websites or outdated branding. We’ll be helping you do just that this month with posts on how you can breathe new life into your business and get you & your workspace organized.I hope you’ll share your DIY’s, before & afters, website makeovers and rebrandings with me by sharing a link in the comments below, you might just see yourself featured this month!

I also want to encourage everyone to participate in our next Twitter party on April 28th from 12-2EST, yesterday’s ethic’s themed party was incredible and you can download the transcript here or search #omhg on Twitter to read the conversation (all 76 pages of it!).

Wondering about the image I used? Nothing says cleaning to me quite like a 1950’s housewife (they sure made it look cheerful!) this is an edited ad for Duz from 1954 found in the collage images Flickr pool-an incredible resource for free stock images!
