A Lovely Year of Finishes 2014 – A Whole New Year!

ALYoF 2014 LGShanna and I are happy to announce that A Lovely Year of Finishes is coming back again next year! That’s right! 12 new months, 12 more finishes!

The response this year was overwhelming! You all were amazing! I can’t believe just how many incredible creations were finished during the first 11 months of this year!  I am really looking forward to next year to see what everyone comes up with.

There will be a few changes in 2014 – we are excited about them!

  • Next year we will continue with our monthly goal parties – live from the 1st to the 7th of each month.
  • We will also continue our finishes parties – live during the last 7 days of each month.
  • We are discontinuing the mid-month check-in party. We have decided to go with something fun and exciting that will bring attention (and hopefully lots of traffic!) to all of you crazy talented people!  We are going to do monthly features of the most clicked on finishes from the previous month.  We want to drive some traffic to YOU!
  • 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 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 want to prevent as many trolls as possible.
  • We’ll still love to see your twitter or Instagram posts use #ALYoF to show off your stuff.

Here is our awesome new button, designed by the incredibly talented Kristin from Modjeska Designs.

    I’m glad you’ll be continuing! I kind of fizzled out the past couple of months with moving to a different state, my sewing room was in flux.

    This is great. I have a stack of projects that I really want to complete in 2014 and maybe this will help keep me accountable.

    Woot, well done for all your hard work this year on it, looking forward to next year 🙂 Oh, and I may be able to hook you up with a prize

  14. Yay!! That’s great news, maybe I can start from the beginning this time…. I have lots of plans for next year 🙂

  15. Jannette says:

    I definitely need another year! A friend commented on my blog the other day, that she was looking for something like this, so I sent her the message too – hopefully, she’ll join!

  16. Lizzie says:

    Exciting! Well, I totally sucked at this this year. I’d love to try again next year, but I wonder, do BOM’s count too? I still have some to finish from this year, and I’m looking for incentive.

  17. KimR says:

    Woohoo! So excited! This really helped me to get more accomplished.

  18. Sondra says:

    Fantastic project. I will spread the word!!!!!!

  19. Sarah says:

    Thank you for doing a Facebook page. I’ve requested to join. I don’t blog but I do share my finishes on Facebook, so this would suit me. I think your finish per month is a great concept and have loved following along this year.

  20. Val says:

    I’m really looking forward to being a new participant this year! I’ve seen your button on many blogs and having been following. I’m a goal setter so this is perfect for me! Is there anything I need to sign up??? Thanks!

    After getting “lost” in 2013 I’m back to get some sewing completed!
