Lovable Labels Spooktacular Weekend Sale

Guess what I'm finally doing?? Yup, labeling new thermoses and containers because my boys are finally starting kindergarten (see previous post about the strike). I'm soooooo happy I have Lovable Labels on hand. 

I will be ordering new labels soon because it hit me that while I suspect Corwyn will be the only one with his name in the whole school, let alone his class, Nathan will not. Our first name only labels are great for telling their things apart but I've had to add a label with our last name to Nathan's (which happily I have).

But enough about me and my love for these labels, I'm here to tell you about the big SALE this weekend. From today (Friday, September 19) until Sunday September 21 at 11:59 PM PST you can get $10 off any purchase of $25 or more!!! You need to use code SPOOKY2014 to get this deal.

What will you get? You can get the Back to School pack to ensure your kids come home with the containers, jackets and shoes that you send them with. But I think I'm going to be getting some of the limited Halloween sticker sets. 

There are 4 sets with options in each. 
The Halloween pack will allow you to look like a Pintrest mom with half the time. 
The Halloween Fun Stickies are a fun way to label things not just for the fall, but all year round to make them stand out. 
The Halloween Party Packs are one of my favorite. You can host a party and give loot bags without any extra sugary foods.
There are 3 new limited additions to Sweet Notes for Halloween. These are great if your child needs to send cards or write thank you notes. 
Get one, get them all!!!!

I still think you can never go wrong with the Back to School pack. Even if you've labeled this year's stuff, there will be more coming at Christmas to get labeled. These labels don't expire so use some now and keep the rest for the next thing. 

And if you have twins, there is even a split pack.  1 Large Value Pack, 1 Design, 2 Names. So many things to choose at a discount!

Remember, this deal is limited to this weekend only. Use SPOOKY2014 to get up to 40% off (10 off a 25 order).

If you happen to miss it, you can still get 10% off using my custom code ChrisFLB3. But I'd act now for a better deal.

Make sure you go to and check them out.

Yup, another milestone. We had our first visit from the Tooth Fairy. She had to use her 'computer tracker' to find the tooth (my guess is swallowed) but she left a shiny twoonie all the same (that's a $2 coin for my non-Canadian readers).

At barely 5 it's a bit early but not impossible. Nathan is a bit annoyed that he didn't lose his first and so far has no loose teeth. But all things in time. I know I was early in getting my permanent teeth.

The First Day of Kindergarten That Wasn't

Yes, the boys were all set to start kindergarten this year. But for now, school is cancelled, not just for my boys but for all kids in the province. The BC teachers went on strike with 2 weeks left in the school year last year. It's still on.

Before you jump all over the teachers, our provincial government carries the biggest burden in this very long drawn out strike. 

No matter who is to blame (or not) it is the kids who are suffering the most. Nathan's look is pure acting (and he's really good at it) and the reality is, missing a few weeks of K is not the end of the world (although it leaves many of us scrambling for childcare). Then there are grade 12 students who are looking towards post secondary education who may not get into the school of their choice because we will be so far behind. The private schools are full now as parents look for alternatives until public school starts again. 

Eventually I'll have their first day of kindergarten pictures though. Eventually.
