Whooz Vinyl Labels {Giveaway}–CLOSED

Disclosure: This could be a sponsored post or contain affiliate links (which means I earn a percentage of the sale), but all opinions are strictly my own.

Every once in a while an invention comes along that is so brilliant that we all scratch our heads and wonder, “Now, why didn’t I think of that?!?” This pacifier from RazBaby that shuts when it falls to the ground is one, this PaintZoom is another, and this ArmPocket Armband for running is one of many, many amazing products that come out every day that make our lives so much easier (lucky for you, a giveaway for ArmPocket is coming later this year!). And today’s giveaway is no exception!

Whooz? Vinyl Labels for iDevices was designed to solve the problem of lost, stolen or “borrowed” cords and cables for iDevices. Have you ever tried to find your charger for your iPhone or iPad in a  messy sea of cables, cords, chargers and earbuds? This is our “technology drawer” in our desk and it’s a pretty frightening place. And if we’re looking for a specific cable in a hurry, forget about it!

drawer

Whooz? Vinyl Labels solves that problem by personalizing your cords and color coordinating them so they’re easily identifiable, no matter where they are. I was sent a set of vinyl labels for the iPad and iPod/iPhone. Each pack of labels comes with four designs: Isaac, Cat Lady, Jeff and Britney for the iPad; and Rico, Cindy, Charlene and Dexter for the iPhone/iPod. (They also sell sets of plain colors, but I think the characters are much more fun!) So not only do you get your choice of which awesome person you’d like to deck out your gear in, but if you are a family of iPhone/iPod/iPad users, you can all have your own rad set of stickers!

all

I used the Britney labels for my iPad cords and accessories. Each character has a description and I love Britney’s the best: “She carries a notebook full of her ‘work’ and calls herself a hiphop artist. Britney can throw down a good beat, but we’re still waiting to hear an actual song.” Ha! I love that this company doesn’t take itself seriously 🙂 Here’s what Britney looks like when assembled.

I love the tongue that sticks out at you! The labels come with clear instructions and were really easy to put on. I had a little trouble getting the earbuds covers to flatten, but other than that everything worked great. The vinyl is good quality and shouldn’t rub or peel off easily. I love the way they look; I will NEVER have a hard time finding my charger cords or earbuds in a sea of cables again!

labels

Whether you need these labels to keep your whole family’s device cables straight or you just want to add a little personality to your cables, these labels are definitely worth the low price tag! Whooz? Labels can be purchased online at WhoozIzIt.com and a set of four is just $12.95. They also sell a Global cable set for those of you overseas for the same price, and if you’re a Macbook user, you’re in luck: they are designing a set of labels for Macbooks which will launch January 2014. Connect with them on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest to hear about the latest news, deals and shenanigans!

One winner will get a set of Whooz? iPhone/iPod Labels AND a set of iPad Labels!

**Because I was sent the winner’s prize items along with my review items, the winner will be responsible for paying shipping from me to you, via PayPal invoice.  The labels are light and shouldn’t be more than a few dollars.**

 

** This giveaway is open to U.S. entries only.

** The winner of this giveaway will be drawn no later than the morning of October 28th, 2013, and will be emailed within 24 hours.  If the winner does not respond within 48 hours, a new winner will be drawn.

One of the best things about living in small town is that they usually have a great downtown area with local shops and restaurants, and we’ve been lucky enough to enjoy them in the last three places we’ve lived.  I love spending a Saturday morning or a random Tuesday evening walking through the downtown streets to discover some of our favorite places to eat and to explore the great items in the boutiques.

main

While I’m the first to sing the praises about online shopping (especially after living in small towns in the last three places we’ve lived!), there are few websites that have the same type of feel as these fun downtown shops.  I was thrilled to stumble upon the online shop Diddle Daddles that just so happens to have that boutique feel with unique items and changing inventory!

scarf

Neon Infinity Scarves – 7 Colors — As I’m sure you’ve been able to tell from my past year of blogging on Dandy Giveaway, I’m not always the most fashion-forward mom.  I was determined last fall/winter to figure out how to incorporate a scarf into my wardrobe, and I’ve decided that this is the year for infinity scarves.  These colors add a great pop of color that is sometimes necessary among the grays and brown of fall wardrobes.

Purseinsert-2T

Purse Organizing Insert — I’m heading back into the diaper bag stage in just a couple of weeks, and this purse organizing insert would be perfect to keep everything in purse well-organized so I can find things quickly.  The other benefit to this Purse Organizing Insert is that you can quickly move everything you need from one purse to another!

hi low

Royal Blue Hi-Low Dress — I love how the hi-low style of this dress jazzes it up a little and gives some flair to transition from summer to fall.  I could see this with a set of flats for an afternoon dress, some heels for a more dressy occasion, or great boots to make it warm enough for fall and winter.

Chalkboard-1

6 ft. Chalkboard Vinyl Roll — And talk about your unique items!!  What a fun item this was to receive in the mail, and it came at the perfect time since we’ve been cleaning out and redoing our toy room in an attempt to be somewhat better prepared for our overseas move in just SIX MONTHS.  We’ve been selling and donating some of our larger items, and the (very large) room was a little bare and needed something.  This was the best solution to add some fun to the wall while also providing a reason to keep that area clear and open.  I could also see this in a hallway, and it can be cut into smaller pieces that can fit on doors or smaller sections of wall in the house.  We’ve loved it so far, and I’m excited to be able to peel it off, roll it up, and take it with us to our new house.

One Dandy reader is going to win a Chalkboard Vinyl Roll!  Enter to win below!

Pink Sparkle Design {Giveaway} – CLOSED

Disclosure: This could be a sponsored post or contain affiliate links (which means I earn a percentage of the sale), but all opinions are strictly my own.

Warning: Use of undefined constant user_level - assumed 'user_level' (this will throw an Error in a future version of PHP) in /home/dandysof/dandygiveaway.com/wp-content/plugins/ultimate-google-analytics/ultimate_ga.php on line 524

I realized just a couple of days ago that this is the first time I’ve really had the chance to actually prepare for a baby to come!  With my first son, I was working full-time and teaching college classes at night through most of my pregnancy; I went on maternity leave about a month early with the idea of spending those last few weeks to get everything ready to go because we only had a car seat (not installed…) and the crib set up (thank heavens!).  Well, I started maternity leave on a Monday, went in for my weekly appointment on Tuesday where I found out that I was in active labor, and had a baby before the sun came up on Wednesday.  !!

With my second son, we had moved from California to Florida for a five-month training that ended when I was seven months pregnant.  We moved here to North Carolina when I was 33 weeks pregnant, pulled our things out of storage and moved into our house, and didn’t spend all that much time doing much outside of getting essentials ready for the baby, just in case he was planning to arrive early, too.  This time, though, I’ve spent the past week washing and drying baby clothes, setting out blankets and new burp cloths, and getting the nursery ready for a baby to come.  I’ve been able to think more about the little things that I wanted to do or have done, and I’ve been able to work on lots of last-minute projects that I’m sure I won’t have time to do in just a couple of weeks.

One of those things that I’ve wanted to do was have some fun shirts for the boys to wear when we leave the hospital.  My oldest has been so involved in this pregnancy, and he talks all the time about having a new baby brother to love.  While my two-year-old probably is in for the shock of his life, he also walks around carrying the baby’s blanket and rubbing/kissing my belly.  It’s amazing how much more exciting it is to have a baby when you have others in the home who are excited, too!

I’ve been looking for a while for some shirts, and one of the things that I wanted was a “middle brother” shirt.  Are you looking for one, too??  Well, let me save you the time — there aren’t any.  Or, the ones that I found have some weird character that no one knows screen printed on the shirt in the background.  Weird.  And definitely NOT what I had in mind.

main

I turned to Etsy to see what would be available there, and I came across Pink Sparkle Designs, which specializes in personalizing anything from shirts to water bottles to sunglasses cases using vinyl!  I hadn’t considered the idea of making my own shirts for my boys, but this was the perfect solution for a non-crafty person such as myself to have a cute personalized product for an incredibly reasonable price.  The heat transfer vinyl is custom made in personalized colors and with custom wording to fit your needs.  I was sent three different vinyl designs:  Big Brother, Middle Brother, and Little Brother

I LOVE THEM!

They’re durable and easily transferred, and the colors are incredibly bright and vivid.  I haven’t washed them yet for fear that I’ll do something wrong and mess everything up, but the instructions from Pink Sparkle Designs are clear and easy to understand.  I can’t wait to have the boys wear the shirts with these heat-transfer vinyl on them, and I’m especially looking forward to the photo shoot we’ll have afterwards.  🙂

So, I have to admit that I spent a lot of time on this website several weeks ago when I was offered the opportunity for a review!  I initially thought, “Labels.  Huh.  How many choices could there be?  I’m not sure that I can even think of something for which I need labels…”

I was so wrong.

After perusing the KiDECALS website for the better part of an evening, I came to the realization that I need labels for just about everything in my house, and even more for those things that go out of my house and need to come back in!!  The KiDECALS website is fun to look through, offers so many different products for different purposes and age groups, and has done an amazing job of helping me finish up some Pinterest projects!

“Our unique kid name labels stick to any surface – including clothes – and are waterproof, dishwasher & washing machine safe! Stick these personalized kids name labels & kids name tags on easily lost items such as water bottles and mittens so they get quickly returned! With over 80 decal and label designs to meet trends and interests, there is a style of personalized labels for everyone – even grownups!  KIDECALS makes custom labels for birthdays, weddings, or other events.  A great way to personalize a party!  We also offer hand-painted kids wall decals for an instant mural in any room of the house.  These PVC free decals are removable and repositionable. See all we have to offer.  Shop now!”

Take a look at the ones that stood out to me when I went shopping on KiDECALS:

Blue-Zigzag-Featured

Blue Zig Zag Keycals! are just so stinking fun!  I have a cute decal for the outside of my laptop, but I never even thought about decorating the keys themselves.

BigAllergyAlertblank

Big Info Allergy/Medical — A good friend of mine has a daughter with a number of life-threatening allergies, and I know that she worries about taking her daughter to a friend’s house for the afternoon or even dropping her off at school sometimes.  These allergy/medical decals are perfect for that pertinent information that could easily be forgotten when panic sets in.

 BRplaid

Blue and Red Plaid — I can think of about twenty-eight uses for these labels just for my own boys (preschool classes, birthday party, school supplies, etc.) and imagine that I would come up with another twenty-eight if I had them readily available.

DOMStationaryS7

 Initial Basic — I love the way these labels look!  We never live in the same house long enough for me to ever feel the need to have personalized address labels, but I think that I might have to remember these when we get settled at the beginning of the new year.  🙂

sightwordsfinal

Sight Words — I taught first grade and had a “Word Wall” that we added to all year long, and these labels would have made that process much easier!  You can choose your own sight words for these labels, which would be perfect for elementary classrooms, preschool settings, or even at home.

 ChalkboardLabel1Chalkboard Label Cloud — This set of labels fulfilled Pinterest Project #1 for me!  I’ve been wanting to purchase a number of the same containers for my pantry items (flour, sugar, rice, etc.) and use a cute label for them, but I hadn’t found quite the right label…  Until now!  I especially love that these are chalkboard labels, meaning that I can quickly and easily change the contents without having to purchase new labels!  My sheet came with enough that I could also use on the boxes in the boys’ toy room, which has made clean up just that much easier for everyone.

 Slider_Potluck_NEW

And, another cute idea for the couple of chalkboard labels that haven’t found a home yet.  🙂

greencursivec

Letters Cursive Font— I received this decal (only in brown with the letter “J” instead) to finish up a Pinterest project that I’ve had sitting my closet for a couple of months.  I found a cute frame at the thrift store, popped out the back and left the glass in the frame, then put this vinyl letter on the glass.  It’s simple but so classy!  It’s a great addition to any room, as well as a great gift idea for weddings, anniversaries, birthdays, etc.

We found our dream home!  And, we live in it right now!  I’m really not kidding – our home is in a great neighborhood, in good proximity to everything we need, has four large bedrooms, lots of natural light, an amazing layout, and plenty of room to grow.  The only problem?  It’s a rental, and we’re in the process now of waiting (impatiently!) for my husband’s orders to move next year.

One of the reasons it’s been able to stay in such good condition even as a rental is because our landlord has lots of restrictions, one of which being that we can’t paint.  In trying to make our house a home, though, we’ve run into problems with personalizing.  Specifically, I was looking for something to put above our large king-size bed that would make the room more personal, add some color, and fill the space.

I was so happy to find Blue Couture Design with lots of great options to help me do all three of those things with a custom vinyl saying that would easily be removed when we move on to our next adventure!

In the home where I grew up, my parents put up a “Return with Honor” plaque on our front door.  You can just barely see it in this picture of me as a high school senior.  I wasn’t exactly a rebellious teenager, but I know I caused my parents a fair amount of grief and worry my Senior year.  Boyfriends, curfew, blah blah blah 🙂 I often remember reading that message on my way out the door, and appreciate the reminder it gave me to come back proud of my actions that day.

Because it helped me in my teenage years, I wanted that same “goodbye message” above our door for our boys (and myself!) to help us all remember to go out to do good things in the world, and come back home with honor!

I knew when I saw this “Return with Honor” vinyl quote from Vinyl Disorder, that it would be great for our home.  I can’t wait to put it up!

Vinyl Disorder carries so many fun customizable products!  So many things I haven’t even thought of, like decals for boats, mirrors, windows, band instruments, dirt bikes , skateboards, etc.  They use quality vinyl, with a 6+ year outdoor life.  Here are some of my favorite ideas, which would be great gift options!

Mailbox Lettering:

Glow in the dark stickers:

And custom apparel:

Plus, their selection of wall quotes/art is the largest I have EVER EVER seen.  You could get lost for hours looking up all the options!  Go see all of their options HERE for wall quotes.

The winner will receive any one thing their heart desires from Vinyl Disorder up to 36″!  Anything!

For years, I’ve been admiring car rear windows with those cute little family decals!  I thought they were such a cute way to personalize your car with the members of the family who drive in it!  What a fun way to show off your family to everyone in the parking lot and on the streets!  I found the perfect website for creating your own little family set!  Introducting Full Intensity Grafx!

I was thrilled to pick out a family set of window clings for our car!  Here we are!

(Now before you go thinking this is an announcement that a 3rd child is on the way, let me clarify!  Our current car is on its way to a better place, and probably only has a few hundred more miles in him—so I made a family of 5 that will go on our NEXT car when we have our NEXT addition to the family!  Just thinking ahead here!  I want this family decal to be used a long time!)

Creating our little family was so much fun!  There are dozens of choices to choose from for each dad, mom, child, and pet.  So many ways to make it completely personal, including colors and headers.  Also, 21 more new family stick figure style designs just arrived last August!  What a great Christmas gift idea for your own family, or for the neighbors, your in-laws, friends, etc.

And let me personally say how 100% completely impressed I was with Full Intensity Grafx customer service!  I was guided every step of the way, without any confusion or questions unresolved.  It really was a pleasure to order, and such a thrill to see the order finished!

The winner of this giveaway is going to LOVE their prize!

The winner will be able to pick their own car stick figure family from Full Intensity Grafx!

Here are the details: You can create a family of 8 members or less out of any regular color.  A header (such as my “Families are Forever” header) and names are also free and optional.
