Today is the day that Kitchen Sink fans have been anxiously awaiting! Maria is releasing 4 new sets and reissuing one retired favorite!! The new sets include Multi Step Cup of Warm Comfort, Winter Cardinals, Simple Sentiments, and Friends of the Moon which is a companion mini set for Multi Step Owl & Autumn Moon. The returning set is the very popular 3 Step Daisy!

My first sample today was created with Multi Step Cup of Warm Comfort. In addition to the foam-topped mug, the set also includes a fabulous array of fun sentiments, these star-shaped sugar cookies, and a sweet peppermint stick!

I am thrilled and delighted that Maria decided to dust off the daisies and bring them out of retirement since I am one of those who didn't get this fabulous set into my collection before it disappeared! With spring just around the corner, I know this set is going to be getting a workout at my house!! It is so much fun to absolutely blanket a sheet of paper with these beautiful blossoms!! This set comes with numerous fun sentiments as well!
