Q2 FAL - It's time to link up your finishes!


It might be hard to believe but we have made it to the end of the second quarter of the 2017 FAL and it's time to link up your Q2 finishes!

The 2017 FAL has a community of bloggers across the world jointly hosting the FAL. Our hosts are:
  • Sarah - Sew me - Northern Ireland
Social Media Director
  Before you link up, let's give a huge thank you to our fantastic sponsors:  
For the 2017 FAL, we continue tutorial week. Here is the schedule so you can visit them all:
The 2017 Q2 link for your finishes is now open below on my blog and on each of the hosting blogs - you only need to link on one blog for your finish to appear on each blog. Link-up "rules":
  • Add one link for each finish. If you want to link a round up post of all your finishes, use that link to enter one of your finishes and then link the rest of your finishes separately. Please, only one link per finish, as your link is an entry into the randomly drawn prize draws.
  • Please ensure that the photo or blog post you link up contains a link or reference back to your original list so that we can verify your entry (make sure it is from the appropriate quarter).
  • Please become part of the FAL community. Please check out the links of others and comment. We all need encouragement so let's applaud each other. The 2017 FAL Facebook page is here and follow us on Instagram @finishlong and tag your photos #2017FALQ2yourname (substitute your name), this makes it easier for us to match your finishes with your lists.
  • Our hosts will also link their finishes to share in the community, but they are not eligible for any of the prizes.
The Q2 Finishes link will stay open from now thru July 1, 2017 - link up your finishes early and if you have a last minute one, add that one later so you don't miss out. The prizes will be awarded as soon as we can verify all the entries and do the drawings. We will post the winners on each hosts' blog.

And don't forget to start making your Q3 lists as the Q3 list link opens on July 2nd.

June Scraptastic Tuesday - Last Call



My fantastic partner, Nicky from Mrs. Sew and Sow has had the June Scraptastic Tuesday link open since Tuesday. I am horribly late to the party, but better late than never, right. Please share your scrappy projects, in progress or completed or your tips for using or organizing your scraps.

I have been absent, moving and organizing, and working at the day job much to hard. I do have some vacation planned so hopefully I'll be back in this space going forward.

Now on to your scrappy projects - please don't delay in linking up as the link closes on Monday at 10 pm MST - that's tonight!

Here are our fabulous Scraptastic Tuesday Sponsors and their buttons, feel free to click through and thank them for their support:




A huge thank you to our generous sponsors for providing the following prizes which will be awarded randomly among those of you who link up.
Please join Nicky from Mrs. Sew and Sow and I by linking up a blog post or flickr or instagram photo sharing a scrappy project, in progress or finished, or your thoughts on dealing with your scrap mountain:
  • You don't have to have joined us before, everyone is welcome.
  • One link per person, and it will be your entry into the random draw for the prizes. It is the same link up here and at Nicky's blog - Mrs. Sew and Sow - so you only need to link up on one of our blogs.
  • This link is to share with our community about using your scraps, please don't use it to advertise your own products or events.
  • You can link up from your blog, instagram or flickr, but you have to link up to be entered in the prize draw.
  • Please visit at least a few of the links, they are very inspiring, and leave comments too as everyone loves to connect. 
  • Use the Scraptastic Tuesday button and invite your friends to join us too. Please share our button, or a link or the hashtag #scraptastictuesday in your linked post or photo. 
  • The link is open until Monday night at 10:00 pm MST. We will announce the winners next Tuesday. 
  • If you have trouble linking up, let me or Nicky know and we will get you sorted.
I'm looking forward to seeing what you have to share with us this month.

Best,

May Scraptastic Tuesday - Better late than never!



My fantastic partner, Nicky from Mrs. Sew and Sow has had the May Scraptastic Tuesday link open since Tuesday. I am horribly late to the party, but better late than never, right. Please share your scrappy projects, in progress or completed or your tips for using or organizing your scraps.

I have not sewn a thing in a few weeks, as I have been moving my family to be based back in the city we were in 2 years ago. We will, in fact, live from both places, but we will have a home base in the larger city where we end up most of the time anyway. This is a very good thing, but it has been a lot of work. And that is my excuse.

I do plan to sew tomorrow so maybe there will be something to share with you then.

Now on to your scrappy projects - please don't delay in linking up as the link closes on Monday at 10 pm MST.

Here are our fabulous Scraptastic Tuesday Sponsors and their buttons, feel free to click through and thank them for their support:
