Lovable Labels Review and Giveaway

I am soo soo soo excited about this opportunity.  Lovable Labels sent me the Mom Craft Labels to review and well, my "craft" closet really needed these!  Basically all my stuff is just thrown in the closet and you cross your fingers every time you open the door.

And yes, those are Brynnleigh's clothes hanging...these are her next size up, or never really worn clothes.  She stayed so small that her summer wardrobe never really got touched in the 12 month range.  I've stopped buying ahead for her, I'm sure as soon as I buy some cute things, she'll hit a growth spurt.

So, back to my labels...these little guys are going to help me organize that massive craziness in the picture above..

Sorry it's blurry, it was taken w/my phone

I bought some 12x12 organizing cases so I can store a scrapbooking kit or two (three actually fit) w/the pictures so when I had an extra few minutes to scrapbook, I could just grab a case and get started.  With two young kids, I don't have the time to find a kit, find the pictures, and then start scrapbooking, by then the kids are up, or bored with what they are working on.  These labels were PERFECT for these cases!
During this organizing, I realized that I really need to start putting pictures on my pages...this isn't even all of my kits that are waiting for pictures to be added!

I put the ones that I don't expect to do in the near future in a Rubbermaid container and labeled it Scrapbooking.  I also labeled my stamps and ink pads.  I seriously can't explain how excited I am about this.  These bins are in the back corner, so I can never see what's inside and have to pull them both out to see which has which in it.  Now with the labels, I won't have to do that!
On the upper shelf of the closet I have my paper keeper, some photo albums, photo boxes, markers, Album in progress (it holds my completed scrapbook pages so I can wait and put them all in the reg. album in order), and two new albums (1 is Brynnleigh's and the other is just an extra for the family, Owen's is already started downstairs).

I do need to get some more photo boxes (or put those photos on all those pages) since I have three on the shelf, and two large boxes on the floor!  (And I don't even have all my photos printed!)

So, ready for the final product?  This, is amazing!

Idea books, and photos in two boxes below!
 I do still want to go through my big scrapbooking bag in the back left corner, but I was too tired to tackle that today.  I haven't opened that thing in at least a year.  The scrapbooking I do now is once a month  and the only supplies I need are a 12" paper cuter, and glue (oh and pictures...eventually).  I also have all my stamps and card making supplies, and I don't really do cards anymore since the kids have come around.  I'm hoping to be able to get back into it when they get a bit older, so I think I'll keep it until I need that closet for something else!

I was able to get 3 large bags of trash from the closet, and a nice pile for Goodwill.  I still had my first digital camera in there...you know, the one with 3 mega pixels?

So, what do I think of the Craft Mom Labels from Lovable Labels?  Well, I love them of course!  They adhere great and have a nice clean look to them.  I would suggest maybe a few more blank labels, but at the same time, there were a couple of times that I had a decision between which label I wanted to use because a few different ones applied.  I have some leftover too that I'm going to use on Owen's craft items.  I would definitely recommend these to others. 

Lovable Labels has a bunch of other products you should definitely check out.  I'm in love with the
Zip It Tags, I hate having to write Owen's name on his jackets to know that he will outgrow it and someone will be wearing a jacket with his name on it.  My other issue - hats and gloves/mittens.  How in the world do you label gloves/mittens who don't have a tag?

Okay okay...on to the good stuff!  Lovable Labels has generously supplied me with a pack of "Craft Mom Labels" for one lucky winner! Thanks, Lovable Labels! (Open to US & Canadian residents ages 18 and older only - sorry)

Hi Amy,

Thanks for posting your review and giveaway for our Crafty Mom Labels! It looks like you really got organized. We love the pictures! Can't wait to see who wins!

I think my favorite item would be a toss up between the toy bin labels and the home office labels. Two organizational goals I have for this year is to downsize my home office & organize and create a playroom.
