One Monthly Goal: OMG Inaugural Launch!
Welcome to the inaugural Linkup post of OMG: One Monthly Goal!
I hope to provide a place to encourage and celebrate one another's quilty goals!
After several days grieving the retirement of ALYoF, I felt compelled to launch OMG. Putting it all together has been rather spontaneous, and a few things may still need to be ironed out. Please feel free to email me, or leave a comment with any suggestions!
The details I have worked out are posted on the OMG page, linked by a tab at the top of my home page, and the OMG button will lead visitors to that page.
Here is how the guidelines read at this time:
One Monthly Goal is open to any quilter who would like to set (and achieve!) monthly goals, and share them in a group environment. This is a social linkup: Participant's are encouraged to spread cheer, encourage, and congratulate one another!
Select ONE quilt-related goal and describe it in a blog post, with photo(s) of said project, and what you aim to finish. If you do not have a blog or web site, please join the OMG: One Monthly Goal Flickr Group and post a photo there with a written description of your goal. Be sure and come back to link-up with the goal setting party!
Each month, the goal-setting link-up will be open from the 1st through the 7th, PST. No exceptions!
Once you have achieved your written goal, be sure and come back again, during the last week of the month, to link your post at the OMG: It's Finished Party! It'll be open the last seven days of each month. The linkup will close at midnight the last night of the month, PST, no exceptions!
To be eligible for the prize by random drawing you must linkup here for both linkups; first your goal-setting oath, and again with your celebratory-accomplishment post. All entrants are eligible, worldwide, who have a valid mailing address.
Please link your posts to OMG: One Monthly Goal, with a link here from the post, and/or a button on the site. Please, grab a button (from the sidebar) and join us!
Ready to Party?
So anxious to get the ball rolling I was, please be patient as I may need to add updates here or there!
The new Flickr group is looking a bit lonely so I hope you will consider heading over there to post a picture!
I am not a Facebook user - so sorry bout that FB fans!
I may begin Instagram soon, but not as of yet...
Once we are in motion, I will seek a couple sponsors to help out with prizes. Until then, I will offer one prize each month, open to anyone with a valid mailing address.
For the January prize, I have pulled one of the Valentine's Day Jam Rolls from my Etsy Fabric Shop (or any Jam Roll you prefer). It is an extra-wide jelly roll, 10 x 5" strips that can be cut into 80 x 5" charms, or 20 x 2.5" Strips.
Thank you for joining me, I hope we will be toasting many finishes together in 2016!
