I just had a quick question. I was just noticing that in many of your projects, you use this distressing ink. Where do you find it? What is it? and how do you use it? They sure make things look neat. Thanks! I love your blog. Please get back to me at
Thanks, Mindy

I am just wondering where you guys are located?

The Scott Family--

Distress Ink is an ink pad, designed specifically for making projects look "antiqued", or "weathered". You can purchase it at most scrapbook and craft stores.

I came across your website a few days ago and have fallen in love. Your ideas are adorable and directions are easy to understand..especially for us who are not too crafty. I was wondering where you get your vinyl letters. I went to the local craft store and they do not sell them. I was hoping to start some holiday crafting pretty soon and would love to have find them!!

Great question! You'll need to order your vinyl from a vinyl company online. I have a link to the one I use in my right side bar, under the title, "need vinyl?". You can call them, and they will talk you through whatever you need.

Good luck!!

I love the place for everything posts. What about a fridge makeover mine always gets soo messy so quickly. Vinyl lettering can stick really well inside a fridge. Just a thought :) Love your blog!

I am thinking of buying a silhouette machine. I was wondering if you use the software that comes with it or if you have the software that you can purchase? I didn't know if the one that comes with it is really too basic or not. Trying to figure out my total cost of everything.

I just discovered this and I LOVE all your creative ideas. I am wondering if you might have some ideas for teacher retirement gifts and/or cards. There are many teachers retiring in my school district this year, and I would love to show them my appreciation for their many years of service. I am also looking for ideas for Teacher Appreciation Day which is coming up. Any ideas on that?
Thank you!

I follow your blog and really enjoy your posts and ideas. I just recently left my day job to open my own business selling my art and distressed picture frames. I was curious about how to offer a giveaway of one of my products. How do you decide on what giveaways you will be offering? I would love for you to check out my blog and see if you would be interested in offering one of my small frames as a giveaway. Thanks! Jennifer

The link to like you on fb took me to the bag site, and the link to the fall catalog didn't work.

Thought you'd want to know.

Thanks for the opportunity to win!

Hi Kierste, if I can remember correctly, you included in one of your posts a place setting idea for keeping kids occupied at Thanksgiving dinner (I'm having trouble finding it now.) Do you have something similar for Christmas? Or could you point me to the Thanksgiving post? I'm hosting a small Christmas lunch this weekend and want to throw something together to keep the 4 boys who will be in attendance very busy. Thanks!

I would use it to make vinyl sayings and I would like to try to use it to cut fabric shapes for applique. :-)

I was wondering where you got the different color stickers for the book organizing that you did. I am not able to find that variety in colors.

I was just wondering about the chalkboard spray paint, does it dry okay on glass, or is it light coats built up to a heavier coat.
love your site, glad I found it.

Hey Kierste! Love your Blog! I liked you on Facebook and would love to have the Cameo!! I live on a small island in the middle of nowhere and have a cricut that I have just about worn out.....I NEED the Cameo!! LOL!
Thank you for all the wonderful ideas! You are awesome!!

Love Brown Paper Packages! You have the most fantastic ideas! I tell everyone to check your blog out! Last Sunday I saw that u were giving away a Cameo so I immediately entered everything you requested to enter but was torn away by my kiddos before I was able to send you a note. I have been asking my husband for one of these things forever and as my birthday just passed I realize I'm out of luck again!! Luv him anyway. The first thing I would do with my new Cameo is create a job board for each of my kids. I have collected some old bar wood and the hooks and now I just need a cameo to print out their names, jobs etc. They really are going to be super cute! And hopefully they will inspire my children to skip a little happier to doing their chores! Haha Thanks for the opportunity. ~ Caroline
