And, I guess the bigger question is, are people still really into this kind of thing? I know several years ago people would give their left arm to be on a design team. Is it still a big thing or no? I'd love to hear your thoughts.

I have been asked, and have been on a few design teams.
But because I do this for fun, I have certain criteria that they need to have in order for me to join.
I have to really like their product.
I don't advertise on the side bar of my blog.
I won't jump through hoops...its not a job, I am doing it as creating is a passion of mine, and I don't want it to feel like a job.
I like when all the members on the DT are supportive of each other. As in visiting each others blogs.
It is an honour to be asked to be on a design team
But I do it for fun. No stress

There is a facebook page called DT Calls that does a pretty good job of posting the calls that are out there. Other than that the manufacturers will usually post calls on their blogs.

It's still a big thing to be on a Design Team, as far as I'm aware! Elle's Studio mentioned on their Facebook page that they had over 250 applications for their latest call - I was one of those applications so I've got my fingers crossed
I think most people go through phases of wanting to be on teams, as everyone needs a break now and then (even if they've never been on a team they might need a break from applying after trying a lot!). But there's always new or returning people wanting to give it a try instead!
