Product Review: Chalkboard Mat aka My Lunch Time Love!

2 Mar

Today’s product review comes from a shop called ImpulsiveCrafter! From Dayton, Ohio this shop has a wide variety of things for your children! She is one of the first shops I go to when I’m comparing other things I see on etsy for Emma. With the great quality in which she makes things her prices seem like a steal! Another thing she beats most stores on is variety. She has 20 pages of items and in most stores you might see 3-4. She gives you so many choices that you are crazy if you can’t find one you don’t like! Check out what I ordered:

So if you are wondering why I call this my lunch time love here is why. When I am making little Miss Emma’s lunch or dinner she is always running around my feet, asking to get up, putting her head in between my legs, you name it! I grab this and a few pieces of chalk out of my drawer and sit her up in her high chair. She’s entertained until dinner is ready! My second favorite thing with this is it’s so EASY to clean. I don’t have to worry about Emma coloring on her clothes or the chair. It wipes up with one swipe of a paper towel. She even gets it in her hair and WIPE – it’s gone! This one item has saved me many frustrating nights 😀

Some more info about this shop: She’s been open since April 9th, 2011, this shop is THREE sales away from 1,000 sales, and 100% feedback. It’s obvious how much having options can really improve an etsy stores sales. Because she has 20 pages of options it makes buyers more willing to stay in her store to find the perfect fabric. Another plus for this shop is she has divided her shop sections in the easiest, most user friendly way possible. If you find something you love in her store just go to the top right and click that section so you can see all your options! Do you need another plus to start shopping? Here you go – even if you are that one person that can’t find the exact thing you want – she offers custom orders as well!!

Check out some of her feedback!

Feb 27, 2012 – Such a cute necklace. Thank you for getting it to me so quickly in time for Dr. Seuss’ birthday! My students are going to love it! THANKS!

Feb 25, 2012 – I’ve now seen pictures of the birthday girl in both leggings, and they’re darling! Thanks very much 🙂

Feb 16, 2012 – Abso-stinkin-lutely adorable!!! I bought these for a baby shower and they are just too cute! The parents aren’t really into “overly” girly things and neither am I so the ability to choose from the massive selection you have was fantastic. Also, holy cow on your quick shipping! Thanks so much!!

Feb 3, 2012 – The bottlecap necklaces are adorable, I can’t wait to give them to my girls for Valentine’s Day! They are so cute, and your shipping and prices are so reasonable. I will be back!


What inspired you to start selling these on etsy?

I started selling chalkmats because I wanted to make one for my daughter Bells, and I can never make just one of anything, so then I have to start selling them to pay for all the fabric I bought!

How long have you been making chalkboard mats?

I have been making the chalkmats for about 9 months now give or take a month.

What do you think your store offers that others might not?

I’m trying to make my store a one stop shop for baby showers and kids gifts! I’m hoping to add some crochet stuff like hats and baby cocoons in this upcoming year.

And the final review says it is:


Thanks for stopping by!

Love Always,
