Chalkboard Label Giveaway from Ginger Snaps!!! {Closed}

Hey Everyone, we have a great giveaway today from Ginger at Ginger Snaps Crafts!  I'm so excited for one of you to win!!!

Hi.  I'm Ginger
from over at  Ginger Snaps Crafts.
It's a place to share ideas I've found, &
inspire you to create along with me.
I'm a wife to one awesome guy &
a busy mom of
5 wild & crazy kiddos.
I love to blog, garden,
craft, organize
& most of all be with my family.
I "met" Katie through whoopdwhoop.
I swapped her for one of her
(Love it!)
Thank you so much, Katie,
for having me over on your blog today.
Spring is my favorite season!
One of the reasons is all
the spring cleaning going on.
Something about opening the windows & 
packing up all the winter clothes
just makes you feel good inside.
You know, once you've got
everything tidied up
& organized you're going to
need a way to label things!
I've got just the thing for you! :)
Up for grabs today is
a set of 6 fancy rectangle chalkboard labels.
Use these for labeling:
toy bins, canisters,
storage bins, gift tags & jars
....just about anywhere in your
house that needs a little more organization. :)
You can use both regular chalk
or chalk markers on these labels.

Labels measure approximately
2 inches by 4 inches.
Chalkboard vinyl is a thick vinyl
with a sticky back. 
It can be wiped
off with a damp cloth,
& written on again & again.
Once applied though it
can not be repositioned.
The vinyl must be placed on a
clean, dry, smooth surface.

Thanks so much Ginger!  I am super lucky that Ginger sent me some of these labels to try out myself and I have to say that they are AMAZING!  Even better than I  could have imagined.  I love chalkboard stuff, but a lot of times when you erase them they leave chalk powder and never become fully clean again.  And I'll be honest, I never do anything perfect the first time so I know I will be wiping these labels off time and time again.  In fact, I didn't like my handwriting the first few times so already have wiped them off and redone them!  These wipe off so easy with a damp cloth and are perfectly clean, just like new.  I love them!  These were great to put on our coffee canisters.  We are a coffee loving household but my husband can never tell the difference between the different types of coffee.  He will put espresso in the coffee pot or coffee ground for the french press in the espresso maker since he can't tell which is which.  So these chalkboard labels were perfect for us! 

They come with easy to follow directions and are a fun addition to just about anything!  Make sure to enter this great giveaway and check out Ginger's etsy shop for more cute and amazing items she has created!
