CoolCanucks Blog Contest ~ Chalk Ink Review & Giveaway!!

Monday, May 28th, 2012

Have you ever found your­self search­ing for that one of a kind item for a per­son on your gift giv­ing list? Do you want the per­fect acces­sories for you your office or home work­space? Would you like unique prod­ucts for your kitchen or for enter­tain­ing? If you answered yes to any of these then is the place for you. is a very cool online web­shop that offers unique prod­ucts for the kitchen, home and office.

I had the oppor­tu­nity to try out a fan­tas­tic new prod­uct that they just started car­ry­ing recently called Chalk Ink. They are wet wipe mark­ers that are ideal for chalk­boards, mir­rors, plas­tics, ceram­ics and glass windows.

Chalk Ink ® is the high­est qual­ity chalk marker on the planet. Don’t be fooled by lesser qual­ity imi­ta­tions, Chalk Ink ® is the author­ity. It works like a paint pen, yet looks like chalk. No dust, no smear­ing once dry. It  comes off with water. Chalk Ink ® offers the widest selec­tion of col­ors and packs. They are non-toxic and food safe. 100% sat­is­fac­tion guaranteed.”

My son and I had so much play­ing around with the mark­ers. We started off with the big mir­ror in my bed­room and cre­ated to our hearts con­tent! Our art was amaz­ing and with just a cloth and some water it cleaned right up!  We moved on to my son’s room next and he has this awe­some chalk decal on his wall of a drum set and we decided to give that a bit of colour. We wrote his name and put on a bunch of really cool designs and it is now a work of art. All the colours we received are so vibrant and this set was so easy to use and it is great to know that it cleans up just as eas­ily when you are done with it or if you need to make a cor­rec­tion on your creation. 



These are the best mark­ers I have ever used and I am very impressed with all that you are able to do with them. Once the Chalk Ink has dried on the sur­face you apply it to, it does not rub off or smear the same way that chalk would. These would be per­fect any type of signs for home or work or even to dec­o­rate those plain ceramic pots that you have sit­ting around.  They are great for kids, adults and I total rec­om­mend them!

CoolCanucks Blog Contest ~ Miss Malaprop Review & $50 Gift Certificate Giveaway!!CLOSED

Wednesday, August 11th, 2010

Miss Mala­prop owner and founder Mal­lory Whit­field is a proud res­i­dent of New Orleans, Louisiana. Miss Mala­prop fea­tures many gifts inspired by New Orleans and made by New Orleans based artists. Miss Mala­prop is cur­rently donat­ing a per­cent­age of all sales (both online & in per­son events) to help with cleanup efforts related to the recent Gulf of Mex­ico BP oil spill dis­as­ter which makes me so proud!!

Miss Mala­prop is where mod­ern hand­made meets sus­tain­able design. On my web­site, I spot­light the best in inde­pen­dent design­ers & artists, eco-friendly and sus­tain­able prod­ucts, New Orleans & Gulf Coast based busi­nesses and issues, and peo­ple & orga­ni­za­tions who are work­ing to make the world a bet­ter place.

“My own cre­ations reflect those same prin­ci­pals. I began sell­ing my cre­ations under the name “dis­man­tled designs” in 2004, after arriv­ing home from a study abroad pro­gram in Lon­don where I saw the amaz­ing artists at Por­to­bello Mar­ket and where I was inspired to begin sell­ing my own recon­structed cloth­ing & accessories.

My designs are all one-of-a-kind, hand­made and orig­i­nal. Most are made from used or vin­tage cloth­ing, or rem­nant fab­rics and trims. Each piece is meant to have a slightly unfin­ished, rough-hewn, well-loved look about it. I hope you enjoy!”

Shop­ping at Miss Mala­prop is a com­plete snap, as every­thing is so neatly cat­e­go­rized on the left all at extremely low, unbeat­able prices!!

    CoolCanucks Review of!

    Sunday, February 28th, 2010


    Novica is one of the lead­ing fair trade arti­san web­sites. Novica works with National Geo­graphic to give tal­ented arti­sans around the world a place to express their artis­tic tal­ents and pro­vide access to the world market.

    Novica, in asso­ci­a­tion with National Geo­graphic, sells prod­ucts — home decor, jew­elry, apparel, gifts and more — made by arti­sans from Asia, Africa and Latin Amer­ica. Artists post their work on the Novica site for free; Novica allows them to set their own prices. The com­pany makes money when a piece sells, and goods ship directly from the coun­try of origin.

    The online com­pany gives you the oppor­tu­nity to learn about the artists lives, explore fas­ci­nat­ing cul­tures,  and browse more than 30,000  unique gifts includ­ing green gifts, Gifts for her, apparel, home decor, beau­ti­ful hand­made jew­elry, Turquoise Jew­elry, Sil­ver Neck­lacesUnique Gifts, carved wood fur­ni­ture, gifts for mom, and soooooooooo much more!



    Novica was designed specif­i­cally to give artisan’s a chance to sell their designs. This is such a great site. I was thor­oughly impressed with the designs that they offer! They offer any­thing from sil­ver jew­elry to home decor that are hand­made. They also offer gor­geous neck­laces! These arti­sans are truly gifted!

    Each of the artists have a bio that you can view to get an inside glance at the per­son from whom you are pur­chas­ing from.

    We want to give artists and arti­sans around the world a global plat­form to express their true artis­tic tal­ents and to spur their cre­ativ­ity. And, we want to pro­vide you with access to unique, hard-to-find items at great val­ues that only the Inter­net infra­struc­ture can allow.

    At the deep­est essence of our phi­los­o­phy, we want to cre­ate a bridge between you and the many tal­ented arti­sans across the globe.

    We want you to know about who you’re buy­ing from. We want you to feel that attach­ment to the prod­uct and to the hands that cre­ated it.”


    Every­thing that sells is com­pletely gor­geous and made of high quality.

    I was sent two really gor­geous unique hang­bags to review, and absolutely love them both!

    Their deliv­ery time as well as their cus­tomer ser­vice skills are also beyond outstanding!!

    “Mighty and regal, ele­phants cel­e­brate Thailand’s artis­tic her­itage in a design by Jiap Roj­jana. The bro­cade adorns a cot­ton shoul­der bag trimmed with rain tree wood and a coconut shell but­ton. The lined inte­rior fea­tures a prac­ti­cal pocket.”

    “Embroi­dered in pre­cise pat­terns, hill tribe motifs form col­or­ful stars. Ancha­lika Cham­nan works with locally grown or pre­pared mate­ri­als to craft this chic shoul­der bag. The cot­ton motifs are applied to hemp, while lon­gan wood hoops attach the straps.”

    I give this com­pany a huge thumbs up, and rec­om­mend them to everyone!!

    I want to thank for let­ting me be part of their review!!
