Hi again, and happy Monday! I hope everyone had a nice weekend. With Valentine’s Day quickly approaching it was nice to have a little time to make sure all my ducks are in a row for the holiday. Between my grandkids, my boys and of course Nick, I have a few Valentines to prepare gifts for so I appreciated the time to get all that squared away.
Over the last couple of weeks, I have talked about my favorite Valentine-themed projects during a few of our YouTube LIVE broadcasts. Most recently, I covered some larger quilt projects, a few simple pillow ideas, sweetheart bowl fillers, notion gift-tins, pre-cut fat quarter packs, wool hangers…and of course caramels to name a few! Thanks to everyone who placed orders last week. Let us know in the comments how all your Valentine projects turned out!
Many of you had questions regarding the seasonal wool hanger/table mat sets that I showed, so I thought I would go over them again to help clarify which mats are in which set. Both are super cute and designed to be part of an interchangeable, seasonal set that can be displayed on a clipboard, as a wall hanging, or small table mat.
Let’s start with the smaller of the two sets. This collection includes a version for Valentine’s Day, St. Patrick’s Day, Easter, and for the Harvest season. Both the Valentine’s Day and St. Patrick’s Day versions are available in light and dark options (please indicate which one you’d like in the comments when ordering). These adorable little decorations have a finished size of 8 1/4″ x 10″ each, and are easy to display as a wall-hanger, on a clipboard or as a small table mat.
I love these little guys for Valentine gifts, especially if you have more than one sweetheart to make for. They’re also adorable for décor throughout the house. Whether you hang them on the wall, a clipboard or use them as a mini table mat, they are easy to display and just really, really cute!
If you’re looking for something a bit larger I have another set of seasonal mats that work well for decorating any room of the house. These hangers are also perfect to display hanging on the wall or on a clipboard as well. These festive mats measure at 11 3/4″ x 11 3/4″ finished size. Clipboards large enough for these cuties are available for purchase on the website as well.
Hopefully that helps to clear up any confusion as far as my seasonal wall hangers/mats go. If you have any additional questions about them, please feel free to call the shop at 920-722-7233.
In other news, I have something exciting to share with you all! We have officially reached 20,000 followers on my Facebook group, STITCH with Lisa Bongean! We have just about as many followers on my, “Stitch with Lisa Bongean“ YouTube channel as well, which is one heck of an accomplishment. All I can say is, WOW! I’m so honored! I can’t say thank you enough. We could never have done it without you!
I wanted to do something special as a way to say thank you to all our loyal customers and fans for helping us to reach this amazing goal, so I came up with something I think everyone is going to appreciate! In honor of our 20K followers on both Facebook and YouTube, I will be giving away 20 prizes during my YouTube LIVE broadcast this Thursday, February 10th, 2022. We will be picking 20 winners from those of you commenting during the broadcast, which we will announce on air. Since not everyone is able to join us live, we’ll ALSO be giving away prizes to 20 people who place an order before midnight with us on that Thursday. Jess and the girls have been hard at work picking out prize items we know anyone would appreciate winning, so be sure and tune in for that!
Hit the link below to tune into my “Stitch with Lisa Bongean“ YouTube LIVE on Thursday at 1PM so you can get in on all the prizes and fun coming up. We’ll of course be delving into the prize bin, covering any news and announcements from the shop, and discussing some upcoming projects and events. Hope to see you there! ~Lisa
