Freebie Friday: Chalkboard Place Mats from Niki’s Knacks

Our first Freebie Friday giveaway is from High Country mom Niki Miller. Niki is giving one Mom Squad reader a custom chalkboard place mat from her online store, Niki’s Knacks! You can check out all of her chalkboard placemats, paci-holders, and hairbows by clicking here.

Chalkboard Place Mats are excellent for children of all ages for restaurants, doctor’s offices, long rides; any time your kids a little something extra to do. What child doesn’t like to draw, play tic-tac-toe or hangman? These fit perfectly inside your purse or diaper bag.

Niki began sewing at the age of 7, with her mom. As an adult, Niki took up sewing things for her daughter and found that she has a passion for sewing. Niki is currently a stay-at-home mom who is hoping to build a small business in sewing for children. Her signature item is chalkboard place mats. She has recently opened an internet based store where she sells chalkboard place mats, paci clips, and hair bows for little girls. She is hoping to add more to her store in the next few months. She is open to suggestions and custom items as well.

This giveaway is open until Sunday, March 9 at 8 PM. I will anounce the winner on Monday morning, March 10th.
