Happy 1st of March!!!

WOW, February went by fast. I cannot believe I am over half way done with this school semester. I have been submitting my resume like crazy. I have had some interviews but I am REALLY really bummed I probably won't be able to take my kids to a daycare center. It really bothers me. My children need structure and safety (not to say they wouldn't at an at home daycare) and mainly they need to be separated. LOL!! In a daycare center they would be in different classrooms or sections. In a home daycare they would all still be playing together. Most places around here want close to $500 a week for all 3 kids. I might as well not go to work. :-( I just feel bummed right now. I know it will get a little better when Lil Tony is in school in the Fall but I wanted/needed to work now.

Ok, well enough of this depressing stuff. It's the 1st. That means kits are officially on sale at Artful Delight. It also means it is the new sketch challenge reveal. You know what's also cool about today, I have some new Paper Smooches stamps on sale at Artful Delight. They will be available later today. Right now I just have some of the background stamps but I will be getting more of the new ones. :-)

So let's get to the kits. Now these things have been "flying off the shelves." Seriously I am so excited about how much interest Artful Delight kits have been getting. All of it is truly amazing.


For a list of the kit contents, please be sure to visit Artful Delight.

Next we have the sketch challenge for March.

Our fabulous Abby designer this sketch. Although she will not be creating projects with the kits, she will be creating our monthly sketches. YAY!!!

That is it for now. All this month I will be sharing with you amazing projects that our Design Team has created using the March scrapbook and card kits. There are still a few kits left so if you would like to purchase one please click here. If you would like to subscribe to either a card kit or scrapbook kit, please send me an email.

And don't forget about our Design Team call. We will take submissions until March 31st. The new term will start May 1.

Wow that is a lot in childcare - I was very fortunate when my children were young that my MIL looked after them - what a blessing.

Fantastic sketch and so looking forward to my card kit arriving.

Both of your kits look amazing this month. I do not know what happens I keep meaning to enter the sketch challenges and then the month is over. This time I will enter it.

Good luck with the daycare quest... I feel your pain... You know I loveeeee your kits!! Forever and ever!

I had the same daycare dilemma 25 years ago. My solution was that I went to work as the assistant director of a child care center and received free child care. Not sure if they still do that but it was a blessing in my life....not to mention that my boys were right down the hall from me all day! Love this month's sketch by Abby and hope to play along.

Goodness! 500 a week? You must be kidding! That would mean just going to work to pay for the daycare. Gosh, I am so thankful to live in Vienna, where daycare is paid for by the city. Hang in there! Your kit is fabulous!

daycare here is a nightmare girls are finally at the age where we aren't really needing it much anymore...just a bit before school, but the waiting lists to get into the centres were a nightmare...and trying to get multiple spots at one place is an enormous heart goes out to you on that one! If you can find a really nice home one, they are sometimes better, especially for the summer months...the kids usually get to go and do more stuff for summer activities, but I agree that they need the structure of the centre, especially during the school year...fingers crossed for you! On a brighter note, those kits are fabulous and I am just drooling over them again this month...trying to convince the hubby that I "need" to buy more the mean time, I am just dreaming of them!

WOW! That's a LOT of money for child care! I hope you find someone SOON! I LOVE the sketch this month, and have just linked up my take. Thanks BUNCHES for the chance to win a kit. Have a GREAT Day,

Leeanne, I hope everything will turn out for the best for you and your kids. it's really a very complicated decision.
The kits look fab and that sketch is great. I will sure play with it (just need some more free time....).
