Announcing ~ 2014 A Year of Lovely Finishes

A Lovely Year of Finishes
That's right!  12 new months, 12 more finishes! 

Melissa and I are happy to announce that A Lovey Year of Finishes is coming back again next year!
 2014 is just going to rock.

That and I need to finish a lot more projects.

We're so happy to do this again as the response in 2013 has been awesome.  You all are amazing!

There will be a few things staying the same and a few changes ahead:

~We'll continue with our monthly goal setting parties.  These are live from the 1st to the 7th of each month.  {January will be the only exception}

~ We'll continue the finish party.  These are live the last 7 days of each month.  Yes that still means you'll have to post, photograph within the same month. It's hard to keep it all together if we overlap.

~We'll discontinue the mid-month check-in party.  We have decided to go with something fun and exciting that will being attention (and traffic) to all of YOUR creations. This will be a monthly feature of the most clicked on finishes from the previous month.  Keep visiting others.

~We'll have a minimum of 6 months of successful participation to be eligible for the big finale in 2015.

~We have a new facebook group.  That's right we're here for all of your social media finishes.  Okay not all just another one.  This page is a closed group, anyone can see this but you can only post (your finishes, blog posts, make comments) with an 'invite' or permission to join the group.  We need to prevent as many trolls as possible. 

~We'll still love to see your twiter or Instagram posts use #ALYoF to show off your stuff.

~We still have the flickr group for those that are putting up with that site still.
