Back To School with Bright Star Kids *Giveaway*

Written by lyricsmama on August 31, 2011 – 9:31 AM -

Back to school essentials, one of them are definetly labels! Every kid needs them, no matter what the grade, being able to claim your personal items ensures that they won’t be tossed into the lost and found, never to be found again!

I’ve tried labels from various companies, and I think by far, my favorite ones are now from Bright Star Kids! Their Name Label Value Kits include all of the labels you’ll need for just about any occasion (not just school) at affordable and competitive prices. 

I got the School Labels Value Kit ($39.95) for my youngest daughter, the kit includes over 175 labels. You’ll get 10 large labels, 30 small labels, 80 tiny pencil labels, 16 large round labels and 16 clear covers, 10 book/subject labels, 30 tag iron on clothing labels.

The process to purchase your labels is easy, you first enter the name you wish (and you can get a secondary line if you want), choose your label color, choose your font style, and then choose one of many cute icons! You’re also able to preview your labels before you purchase.

We opted for purple labels with a cat, kiddie font and my daughter first and last name. Her lables (not including her last name on them obviously for my blog) look like this:

I love how durable they are, they don’t rip easily like some other labels I’ve encountered, they stick on just about everything, are dishwasher safe, microwave, steriliser and freezer safe, all of the clothing labels are safe in washing machines and tumble driers.

Don’t be fooled by the location of Bright Star Kids thinking your order will take forever, although they’re located in Austraila shipping and ordering is prompt! Orders are processed within about 2 business days and I got my package within a week, super quick!

Bright Star Kids doesn’t just carry lables either, they have a variety of products such as wall art, bags and products for the home. Be sure to check out Bright Star Kids for your back to school and home needs at their website brightstarkids.com.au.


Two lucky readers will have a chance to win a $30 voucher to spend at Bright Star Kids!  Use your voucher for back to school or home items, whatever you’d like!

Back To School With Dezign With A Z Wall Decals *Giveaway*

Written by lyricsmama on August 22, 2011 – 9:34 PM -

If your household is anything like mine, back to school means back to running
around crazy to different events, games and school functions.

It’s sometimes hard to keep track of just about everything! I have calendars around the house, one on my phone, and on my computer. My oldest daughter is starting to write things down for herself now as well, with her going back to school I figured she’d need something to keep herself a little more organzied (and stay away from my stuff!).

Dezign With A Z has some pretty cool wall decals that can help my daughter jot down things on the fly right on her own walls with their Black Chalkboard and Whiteboard wall decals.These decals are super cool and easy to put up on the wall, just write on them with chalk or dry erase markers and then erase them to use them again and again and again, the best thing is they’re removable and reusable so if my daughter decides to move around her room, she can place these wherever she needs them.

For my youngest daughter, they’re equally fun as she can draw pictures all over them time and time again.

For a busy mom on the go, I also have a set on my pantry doors in my kitchen

for when I need to jot down grocery lists for those back to school lunches.

You can check out the entire line of Black Chalkboard and Whiteboard decals by visiting the reusable chalkboard and whiteboard section of Dezign With A Z. These are perfect for children’s bedrooms, offices, kitchens and more!

Dezign With A Z has various different Black Chalk Board and Whiteboard decalsavailable in different shapes and sizes, we opted for the Mix n’ Match pack that comes in a set of 4 dots 2 black chalk boards and 2 whiteboards. Easy to install and like I said removable and reusable, no paint coming off of that wall.


One lucky reader will have a chance to win a $30 Gift Certificate to Dezign With A Z!
