Clothing Stickers, A Silhouette Promo, and Giveaway

It's time for another Silhouette promo and this one is awesome.  It's for the machine and vinyl - which is what I think everyone uses the most.  There's also a simple entry giveaway at the end of this post.

So, as I'm nesting for the baby I'm trying my best to make things in the house low-maintenance.  I'm trying to teach the boys how to do more things on their own.  Recently I decided it was time to tackle Baden's closet.  It has these weird, deep shelves that I've never been able to utilize well which meant I had most of the things he needed to high for him to reach.

So I purchased some inexpensive bins for his clothes.  (He doesn't have a dresser.)  Then I used some vinyl to make labels, so it's easy for him to know where things are.


The decals were made by googling "long sleeve shirt silhouette" for example and then importing the image and tracing it.  Not only can he find things now, but he can put away all his own laundry.  Victory.


Since he's only 3 he's not really into folding yet, but I really don't mind.  I figure the world won't end if his pants are in a bin unfolded.  



And if you're interested in purchasing the Silhouette, here's the current deal.  There's one for the Portrait (the baby sister), the Silhouette (the big dog), and just purchasing vinyl as well.  The vinyl price has been lowered and it's 25% off that, so it's a pretty good deal.


To get the deal you have to go HERE and you can use the code "ROAR."

Now, for the GIVEAWAY!  This one is open to US residents.  You may enter today through the 20th.  Winner will be announced on the 21st.  Just leave ONE comment on this post.  If you accidentally leave more than one please go back and erase all but one.  

Thanks for stopping by.

I would be the happiest girl in all the land if I were to win. I have a giant list of ways I'd like to use the Silhouette.

Kirby said...

Just found your blog from something off Pinterest. Love the clothes bin idea for promoting independence with chores. I don't have a Silhouette (yet!), but I am definitely going to use some paper and tape to do this with bins for my son to do his own laundry.

Nina said...

Meg said...

Ohhhh, I would love to win! We don't use dressers for our boys either and their clothes are too high for them to reach in the closet. I may need to implement your idea with the bins on the lower shelves. Awesome! (pssst, I dont' think the world will end either if my boys' clothes aren't folded and a little wrinkled)

Jill Hoelle said...

Pick me! Pick me!!

athena miller said...

That's a great way to organize his closet. I was looking for how to do his shorts this year. We ran out of hangers for the # of clothes we have!

Silhouette - yes please. My mom needs one for her craft room - badly!

Blythe said...

please, please, please! I could use it at work and at home...

eirinnkelly said...

I love the bin idea, my daughter's room has a tiny closet and this would be a great way to utilize the space. Thanks for the chance to win!

Catherine Hansen Peart said...

Would love to win this!! I would be a madwoman labelling everything.

Nicole Reis said...

I know that you're going to have a million comments due to the giveaway, but I'll comment anyway. I have a Silhouette, and before my 2nd was born I was obsessive about labeling everything (dresser drawers, making bins for the top of their shared closet for clothes that are too small, etc). I created a manual for the grandmothers who were going to take turns watching my then 2 1/2 year old. It had things from simple recipes to places to go in the area to her friends names/contact info to our basic routine for the day.
P.S. Since I already have a Silhouette, if I win, I'll offer it to a friend.

Thanks!

Sarah said...

Would love to win. Thanks for the chance.

Amanda said...

If I enter these giveaways every time they come up... eventually I have to win, right? Thanks for hosting it :)

Alice said...

Awesome! I am in to win cause I love this stuff!

Heather said...

what a genius idea! I have 14 month old twin boys (I frequent your blog often!) so they're not quite ready to pick out and put away their own clothes, but dresser drawers can be tough to open and close and can pinch fingers. I'm definitely going to use this when they get older. Who needs to fold play clothes?! Thanks for the giveaway!

Michael and Rachelle said...

I love this idea. And I love empowering little ones with a little bit of independence and responsibility. Thanks for the chance to win and for all the time and love you put into this blog.

Great idea on the bins! May have to try that with my youngest. Wish I had a silhouette! ;)

Maureen said...

Cheri,

I recently so a post about fileing the folded clothes instead of stacking them in the drawers. The poster - I can't remember who or where this came from - said it cut down on the amount of laundry because clean clothes didn't get mixed in the dirty clothes and her children were ble to dress themselves easier. I thought it was a great idea. Maybe her idea and yours could be incorporated together.
Thanks for the Give Away!

Maureen
