Mabel's Labels Review & Giveaway!!

***Giveaway closed and a winner will be picked shortly!!***

I don't ask for a lot for you to be entered into any of my giveaways, and I'd really appreciate people following the rules of any/all of them. This one says to please go visit Mabel's Labels and tell me any other item that you like BESIDES the Camp/School pack. I'm going to go through comments here momentarily and get rid of the ones that don't follow the rule. Its unfair to those who actually did follow the rules of the giveaway. I don't want to DQ anyone, and I don't want to start moderating comments. Please just follow the rules for me m'kay?

Now on with the original review.....


Boug is going to be 5 this summer, and its closing in on us fast. We always wanted to get her into pre-school before Kindergarten, but it just was not financially possible. But now with Kindergarten right around the corner, I keep thinking of little things like lunchboxes, cupcake days, nap times and all the things that I remember from when I was in Kindergarten a million years ago.

I remember naptime when I had to bring in my own blanket and attempt to lay still and take a nap. I hated naptime. I never slept. I got bored. I got fidgety and I never got the little surprises that the teacher aides would give all the napping kids. She'd put stickers on our cots for later or a pencil eraser or something else thats fun for kids.

I brought in my blue and pink plaid blanket and of course, my name HAD TO be on it. I wouldn't want some other kid using or stealing MY blanket. My mom sewed a small piece of cloth to the corner of the blanket and wrote my name on it with sharpie marker.

Thank goodness I wont have to attempt to sew. Mabel's Labels is a great company started up by moms who were frustrated with just how much stuff got taken out of the house and never came back!

The sticky labels and clothing labels are totally customizable and are microwavable, dishwasher and laundry safe.

Some of my favorite things are the kids safety products. My 411 wristbands and Allergy Alerts are genius! I remember as a kid walking around with a big paper tag tied to my backpack or my belt loop. These are so so so much more convenient!

And the best thing that they could have done for someone like me... The Camp/School Pack. It has more than enough labels than you'll need for summer camp or school. It comes with 15 sticky labels, 40 iron-ons or 50 tag mates, 8 shoe labels and 2 bag tags, for only $34.00!

Photobucket

And wonderful for me, the organized challenged, they also have household labels like the cord control, curbsides, the neat freak combo and more!

Lucky for you, I have a Camp/School Pack to giveaway to a reader!

I love to organize. The Clothing labels sound great!!

T with Honey January 7, 2009 at 1:43 PM  

The Mama Cards are really cute but I think the product that piques my curiosity the most are the "My 411 Wristbands". What a cute and creative solution to such a universal problem!

The Bag Tags seem perfect for my 2 crazy boys. They look cool (like dog tags) and might even be indestructable. My boys could test that!

I love the school pack. I have it for my two other boys in school full time...and I have another starting this next fall not to mention I am always running out of sticky clothing labels which I love!! You can't go wrong with Mabels labels!

Valerie,  January 8, 2009 at 2:09 PM  

I just bought the big combo from Mabel's for both my kids but would love to add the 411 bracelets and a pack for myself - Momma! valerie.ralph@persona.ca

Thanks!

We love the sticky clothing labels. With my older son in preschool, we lost a ton of clothes to the lost and found. Then I found the stick on labels and brought that to an end. I love these things.

justicecw January 8, 2009 at 5:28 PM  

I like the clothing labels. thanks for the chance, justicecw@hotmail.com

I love the shoe labels. My daughter has ballet class and right after ballet she does acro and so they take off their ballet shoes and she is always guaranteed to get the right ones back because of the mabel labels shoe label with her name on it

Susan Smith,  January 8, 2009 at 6:42 PM  

I like the shoe labels. My daughter's ballet shoes never get mixed up with all the other ballet shoes that are put in a pile to start her acro class

joni chadwell,  January 8, 2009 at 7:14 PM  

Iron on clothing labels are a great idea

joni514@roadrunner.com

Kimberly January 8, 2009 at 7:32 PM  

I love the kid ID bands. I usually put a card in their pocket with our names and cell # when we're out at a big event. These would make that so much easier!
Thanks for the contest

Louise January 8, 2009 at 9:36 PM  

My faves are the Skinny-Minis! So many wee little items I could label with them ... it's probably weird how much I look forward to labelling!

gailsim January 8, 2009 at 10:02 PM

I do believe that whether I win or not, I'm going to be ordering that cord pack...I must have some!

Tracye January 9, 2009 at 8:57 AM  

I love the Mama Cards!

Thanks for hosting the giveaway!

julied January 9, 2009 at 9:30 AM  

I like the iron-on clothing labels that you can put on any kind of clothing. We lose so many hats, mittens, scarves in the winter time and it is so hard to just wirte on these fabrics. Iron-on labels would help that.

sunnymum January 9, 2009 at 10:23 AM  

The set of bin labels would be very helpful to sort through all the kids clothes that are scattered around the house. Thanks for the chance to win!

Davina January 9, 2009 at 10:43 AM  

I love that they do Household labels. That's pretty cool.
Thanks,
Davina

grubmama January 9, 2009 at 1:39 PM  

the clothing labels would be much neater than the laundry pen i use on the kids clothes and on my husband's work shirts.

Shelly January 9, 2009 at 4:13 PM  

I would love the neat freak collection

Sonya January 9, 2009 at 5:08 PM

Karen January 9, 2009 at 7:39 PM  

The Tag Mates are way cool, especially for those black T-shirts that are hard to write on in Sharpie!

Deirdre January 10, 2009 at 4:13 PM  

I like the bag tags in teal!

Shari & Andrew January 10, 2009 at 8:11 PM  

I love the bin labels--this would be perfect since I am trying to organize our garage and just bought a ton of storage bins.

noreen January 11, 2009 at 1:13 AM  

Tag-Mates, no ironing!!!

Steph January 11, 2009 at 9:12 AM  

I love the shoe labels and the tag mates the best. whoever thought of the little plastic over thingy for the shoe labels was a genius.

Miss Vicki January 11, 2009 at 11:24 PM  

I think the Mommie Cards are the cutest colors and designs...I love to be organized so tags are always a plus. Iron on tags for the girls clothes would make so much easaier for this Gramma when I'm folding their very similar clothes! as well as get it home from the gym and the friends birthday party!

I love the clothing tags - I'm one of the first in my circle of friends that had a baby so we are sharing clothing (it's much cheaper that way) but I would love to use neat looking ID tags instead of a sharpie! I also like the neat freak collection as I am tring to get my house in order :) dgwjjw@embarqmail.com.
