Altered notebook

Good Morning! Yesterday was a fabulous day. I spent the first part of the day wandering around Wal-Mart by myself just having some "me time". I bought stuff but I was there for almost 2 hours. What the heck, I need to get out more often. LOL! Then we had some family gardening time. Well it was in the house at our kitchen table. :-) Tony and I are trying to grow vegetables and so we started the seeds under lights in our basement a couple months ago. They have all started to sprout so we needed to replant them to bigger pots until we can get them outside. Plus we bought more seeds so we had to plant them. Isabel and Lil Tony helped fill the little dixie cups with dirt, oh my they were having a blast. :-) Then we had an amazing dinner. Homemade buffalo chicken strips, jalapeno poppers, coleslaw, and macaroni salad. It was delicious. Then I made some pillow cases for my kids while Tony worked on some school work. And we ended our evening with some homemade chocolate chip cookies and some ice cold milk while catching up on some old episodes of Bones (on Netflix) LOVE that show. Ahhhhh Spring break is wonderful!!!!! :-)

So it is coming to the end of another month, yikes where is the time going. The bad news is today's project may be the last one showcasing March's monthly kit. The GOOD news is in a few days we will have the reveal of April's monthly kit and it is a fabulous kit. I think I say that each month but I am learning so much from building these kits. New companies, new products, and I am learning how to pack as much as I can in the kits so everyone feels like they are getting an amazing deal. Really you are, there is so much stuff in these kits that if you were to pay full price for each and every item you would easily pay double the price of the kit (maybe triple).

I may ask you to set up a 3 or 6 month subscription (to get the better deals) but really there is no obligation. If you need to cancel for whatever reason I just ask that you give me some notice. If possible a 30 day notice but I understand unexpected things may come up and you can't . With that said I really think you should try out one of Artful Delight's kits. You won't be disappointed. :-)

Anywho, let's get to the fun stuff.....Today I have an altered notebook that April created. Let me just tell you, I will be making that CUTE twine flower. LOVE it. I have the before and after pictures.




I really do love this, it is super cute. This month's kit has been super fun to play with, from all the cute Twig collection products to the adorable owls from the Spotted Owl Soup collection is has been a blast. There is still one kit left. :-)

Please be sure to stop by April's blog for full details about the altered notebook.

Happy Crafting!!
