This special giveaway is very close to my heart.

About two years ago I published this post and my poor little blog nearly had a heart attack! I had NO IDEA my simple idea would cause such a stir – though I’m so glad it did!

  24. I’ve been a long time admirer of these labels. I’ve had them pinned for ages…but have never gotten around to making my own. I’d love to get the salt label…which might inspire me to make the rest :).

    And, I’m a follower on Facebook as well.


  25. Moona Elsevier says:

    Almond flour would be my custom label choice.

  26. Cindy says:

    Love your labels! Dog treats or cat treats would be wonderful!

  27. Shannon says:

    I would love a label for different types of nuts – most used in our house is walnuts!

  28. Kellie says:

    I love these labels! They inspired me to make labels for my partners collection of herbal teas, although my labels are much more *home-made*. I would suggest a herbal tea range including but certainly not limited to Peppermint, Green, White, Rooibos, Echinacea, Chai and so on and so forth…

  29. Erin says:

    I absolutely love these labels! They are on my ever-growing list of things to do. I would add nuts and grits. I married a southern boy and he doesn’t do the oats thing.

  30. Korrie says:

    Love these! I would need a label for chocolate chips.

  31. Barbara says:

    Thank you! I would like a custom label for Nuts.

  32. jenni farnes says:

    i remember vividly the day you first posted these amazing labels. i sat at my computer stunned. i wished oh wished i had them. i have the perfect spot for them. i wanted to have them exactly as you pictured them. sigh. they are utter genius. i love words and you used the words to describe words necessary to kitchens everywhere. so…..if i were to actually win these much-coveted items the custom word i would have you print is MAGIC. i think all of us need to dip into a little jar of magic every now and then. this would have a preeminent spot on my kitchen shelves. it would invite investigation.

  33. Kristin Keene says:

    i would enjoy the salt one- only because the salt box is really ugly and the salt deserves a pretty canister, but it needs to be labeled since it could easily be mistaken for sugar.

  34. Heather says:

    Okay, so this one might be totally out there, but I would request one that says Dog Treats or Doggie Buscuits? Something on that order. I would love to see these in my kitchen! Thanks so much for the giveaway and the inspiring ideas:)

  35. Kathi says:

    Love your labels. Pasta

  36. Marga Ancu says:

    Your posts always give me a thrill. Love them. Thanks for your creative ideas, may God give you all you need.
    Any of yours would make a perfect giveaway. Thanks again.

  37. AmandaH says:

    These are so great and I have been admiring them for some time! I would request Whole Wheat Flour or Bread Flour!

  38. Michelle Wright says:

    Dog biscuits for sure.

  39. Carol T. says:

    Coffee of course!

  40. Wendy M says:

    i would love all the basics plus i would need a custom one for coffee beans. i would LOVE to win.

  41. Marta Silva says:

    I’ve had this inmy DIY wishlist for years now. But the paper is so expensive (I live in Portugal so the shipping costs…) that I’ve never gotten around to it.

    i think I’d choose something along the lines of Dog Treats, since I always have that jar on the counter for quick access.
    Of course, I’d love them all :P

  42. Patty Howe says:

    I have always loved these labels. I would choose your stock ones and maybe dish soap or chocolate chips or nuts. Thanks.

  43. Lexie H says:

    I’d love these lables I think I’d like the sugar most. Our sugar container is very similar to these.

  44. Jennifer says:

    Love these labels! I would need a label for Gluten Free Flour! Trying to do much more baking in this dimension!

  45. Ruth Lutz says:

    I have loved these labels since you first introduced them! Having recently converted all my pantry storage to glass containers, this giveaway is perfect for me! The additional label I would ask for is Dutch Cocoa Powder. Thank you for giving us a peek into your life through the years – your blog was the first I ever started reading!
    Warm regards,
    Ruth Lutz

  46. Kay says:

    I would be happy with any one of them. Love the homey look.

  47. Anne says:

    I love, love your labels. This is a great giveway ! Maybe Honey ?

  48. Maneesha Pradhan says:

    These are perfect. I love these. I have so many spices and flours in my cabinets that it is crazy. No one other then me can figure out my system. I think I would like to have saying Garam Masala. I make all my own spice mixes and have them in glass jars so this would be perfect for me.

  49. Felicity says:

    I’ve had these labels pinned forever – love them and I need to get mine made. I’d start with a label for pasta.

  50. Judith M. says:

    Love ♥ your labels. A ‘Cocoa’ label would be my request.
