Happy Tuesday and a winner!

Good Morning my friends!!!! I don't have anything crafty for you today but I wanted to announce the winner of our recent giveaway. I also wanted to post an update and some info about our monthly kits.

First is kind of a disclosure. Artful Delight is able to offer amazing kits at amazing prices because all the money is put towards product. What I mean is I try not to use fancy packaging or anything like that. I try to keep any extra costs to a minimum so I can pack as much as I can in to the kits. Our kits are shipped in Priority Mail boxes unless I am shipping international.

Next, all product included in the kits are "while supplies last." If for some reason I run out of a certain product I will replace it with something of equal value. It might be extra of something already included in the kit or something else I found matched the kit. This doesn't happen often but it has happened. The kits will always be valued the same.

Third, CARD KIT prices will increase a little bit starting in May. Any current subscribers will not be affected by this price increase for the remainder of their subscription. Our card kits and scrapbook kits will be priced the same. For the past couple months the card kits retail value is the same as the scrapbook kits so I thought they should be priced the same way. This will allow me to offer a single monthly purchase price and a 3 month and 6 month subscription price. The prices are as follows:

Single month purchase $32.50
3 month subscription $30.50
6 month subscription $27.50

Shipping charges will be a bit less for card kits though, $5.50. I think this is still a super fantastic price - all the papers, embellishments, adhesive, AND a full sized stamp set - Retail value is usually around $15.

Finally, with my upcoming move, I will only be ordering a very few extra kits above the kits for subscribers. I may only have one or two extra and depending on how many subscribers I have during a month I may not have any extra kits to be purchased as a single purchase. There are several reasons for this. One is whatever is not sold has to be packed and I am so restricted to how many boxes I can have, I don't want there to be a ton of boxes of "inventory." Also I will traveling for about a week and won't have access to my craft stuff. I won't be able ship anything out anyway.
So with that said here are the benefits of subscribing.
  • You are guaranteed a kit every month during your subscription period
  • You will receive a discount price based on how many months you subscribe
  • PLUS there is no obligation - there are NO automatic deductions from your account - you will be sent a monthly invoice on the 25th of the month (the day of the kit reveal here on our blog) and if you want to skip that month or something you can just send me an email
  • You can ultimately cancel at any time - I would just ask that you give me as much notice as you can that you need to cancel but there is no penalty

I know "subscribing" sounds like a big commitment but really it isn't. There is absolutely no obligation. You may ask, "what is the point of subscribing then" - well it is mainly to give me an idea of how many kits I should order. Being a small company I just can't afford to order a ton of kits and be left with overstock for any extended periods of time. But at the same time I want to make sure everyone that may want a kit gets one.

So if you would like to subscribe, please send me an email - at this time your subscription would start with the May kit and you will not be billed anything until April 25th (edited to correct date).

Also, within the next couple days I will have a ton of Paper Smooches stamp sets for sale. They will be priced about 33% off retail.

Ok, ok now for the winner of our recent giveaway!!! Thank you to random.org - the winner is comment #13......

What a fun question. We are military so I've moved MANY times. Over the last 15 years I've moved a whopping total of 13 times! Which includes the house we just closed on last week ;) Hopefully this is our LAST stop! Thanks for a chance to win!

Congratulations!!! Please send me an email within 72 hours to claim your prize/provide snail mail. :-)

Hope everyone has a wonderful day.
