How do you like our artwork this year? So cute…Teri does such a good job…If you have been through this for a couple of years already OR this is your first time doing our 12 Days of Needful Things, WELCOME!
Are you ready for 12 days of FUN!!!! Good…I’m ready too. I’m feeling great and want to get to work…this FIRST post is wordy…so please read all the words so you now what’s going on!!! Remember I have to write them so you have to read them!!! Ha…works good when we all do our part!
EXPLANATION: It has been brought to my attention that I do this 12 days thing backwards…and was suggested I change it…ummm no…I count down 12 days until Christmas…I start with 12 and count down till 1 day before Christmas…I guess if think about it…if I did things the way they were supposed to be done…I wouldn’t be what I am today…so you have to live with my backwards thinking for just this time of year…and every year I do this…like a tradition. I just checked this will be the 4th year of the 12 days of Christmas…You can go back in the blog archive and read the previous 3 years. Look in Dec 2012-2015.
Every year it is very hard for us to come up with 12 new things as you know I only promote what I actually use…I do not believe in owning every notion because someone thinks its a great idea…my prime example is you don’t need a ruler to help you put your binding on…that’s just a little silly…but all shop owners love those who have to have every little thing made for quilters…and bless you for keeping your quilt shops in business, but seriously my notion walls in may shops do not run the length of the store..they are very minimal…It has to be real necessary and useful for me to promote it…Some of the items may seem to have been done previously…Well.. if there is an improvement or addition to the product line we may feature it again…so keep this in mind as well…
Ordering Details…The major thing that is different this year is will will not be able to hold your placed orders as we go and ship them all together at the end…unless you wait until the end-and send your order in all at once. We are SUPER COMPLIANT with our CC processing and it adds the minimal shipping and charges your card as soon as you place your order….I know it’s different-we never see your cc number-a good thing… Think about it this way…you cannot order from Amazon and then order again the next day and have them combine them…does’nt work.
We LOVED it when we could do this as we could see if we had to order more if we had a lot of orders and keep ordering and be ready at the end to ship them…but not anymore…but if your order is over $100 shipping is FREE so keep that in mind, and send those orders through if its important to you to meet that FREE SHIPPING amount. If the minimal shipping is no big deal and you want to send your orders in you’ll be sure to get them fast, because I know a lot of people will wait till the end to send their complete order through with this new system… Just an FYI reminder…Domestic (US) shipping is $3.99 under $10 and $5.99 under $100. FREE over $100…I think of shipping like putting gas in the car…If I was going shopping I’d have to fill the tank up…trudge all over town looking for what I want and so on…I’ll gladly pay $5.99-reasonable shipping charges to stay home and shop on my computer, No big deal. So I hope that is clear. If you have any questions you can call the shop or email, but it’s pretty simple…International customers please wait until the end and regular International shipping rates will apply.
Day 12…Needful Thing
Wonder Clips…We’ve had this one before..but have you seen the NEW jumbo and NEWEST mini ones they have now?…I love those big and little sizes…Lisa BongeanSo many uses…It’s all about “together”…keeping our things together….you can clip blocks together when you are are laying out your rows…you can hold tiny counted HST’s together in the number you need to keep them”together”…if you have to have “x” amount of papers for this project…keep them “together”…not just for binding your quit anymore…and I’m sure you wouldn’t mind sharing a few of the things you uses them for?
