  1. Hi! I saved an adorable Christmas word tree you had posted- but I can’t seem to find the post now :( I was curious if you could tell me what font you used to create it or where you got it from? I just love it! Hope you have a great day!

    1. Hi Delina,

      It must have been someone else’s project that I was featuring–I’ll see if I can find it!!

  2. Thank you for the recipe for eggless ice cream. I have a son who is very allergic to uncooked eggs (He quickly becomes violently sick.) and sometimes I am afraid that I haven’t cooked them enough. I like your ideas. May you be blessed this day in an unexpected way. Thank you for sharing.

      1. Oh, and make sure you check the spam folder of that address, it could have gone there by mistake.

  3. Im looking for a mason jar that’s big enough to hold cards at a wedding reception, my theme is mason jars and I need a very large jar to hold cards from guest do you have anythinh that large?

    1. Yes! You can find really large decorative mason jars at Michaels–at least I’ve seen them at the last two stores I’ve been to. It might be just the thing!!! It would be darling for cards!!

    1. I don’t know, lol. It’s what the house was painted when we moved in. But…I can try and find out for you!!!

  4. Why am I having such a hard time? When I am on your page and find something I want to share (ie the striped canvas art) on FB I cannot figure out how to share it on my fb page. I click the fb icon, but it just takes me to your fb page! Please tell me

    1. You know, Janelle, I’m not sure!! Let me see what I can figure out, and I’ll get back to you!

    2. I just tried it myself, and it didn’t take me to my FB page–it took me a to a “share this link” page, where I could select if I wanted it shared on my timeline or not. It doesn’t look like it’s the button on my blog–maybe something with your FB? So sorry I can’t help more!!!

  5. Hi, I’m planning a wedding and remember you had a post about writing love letters to your husband and giving them to him to be opened at particular moments in life. Could you tell me when that was, I can’t seem to remember the details. Thanks.

  6. Just finished a major Pin Love-Fest with your site. Found you today and am the President of your Fan Club. My tastes line up just right with you and I am thrilled to discover Simply Kierste. Happy!

    1. I’m so glad you found me, and things you love! What kind words…thank you so much for stopping by, saying hello, and pinning. :)

  7. Hi Kierste, stumbled upon your terrific blog today! so glad I did, love it. Following your copyright guidelines I am featuring your free ‘letters to Santa template’ on an upcoming blog post over at as part of a current ‘Holiday PostSeries” I am doing. I have a included a direct link back to your blog and hope you get some visitors as a result. Thank you.

    1. Hi Barb, thanks so much for stopping by, and for the feature! I appreciate you letting me know, and I’ll be sure to come over and check it out!! Happy Thanksgiving!!! xoxo

  8. I love the flag blocks you make!! Do you sell them? I do not have a creative bone in my body, would love this for the holidays as my grandson just became a marine and my granddaughter is in army bootcamp right now.
    Thank you so much!

    1. Thank you, Sharon! I wish I could make them to sell, but I just do not have a spare moment to do so. Do you have a crafty friend or relative that could help?

  9. Hi Kjerste,
    It appears the link for your cleaning checklist is broken…could you please connect me with it? I appreciate your enthusiasm. Thank you!

  10. I seem to remember one of your posts about bulk groceries and some wooden shelves your husband made. I’m trying to stockpile groceries and came to your site to try to find your post, and I can’t find it now. Was it you that did the post I’m thinking about? I can still see the pictures of the 2×4 shelves with black beans on them…ha. Thanks!

  11. Hi Kierste, I was hoping to get your ideas on something. Your style is a lot like mine and I always love what you create so I wanted to see what you thought. I’m trying to decide on wall decor for my living room. I have 3 very tall windows on one wall. I have 2 long frames (15 x 27) that I want to use (1 between each window), but I can’t decide what to do with them. I’ve searched Pinterest, Google and, of course, your blog, but can’t seem to find anything that just “fits”. I’ve thought about favorite quotes, but was afraid that would be too “wordy” since I have an old wooden road sign above my center window and I have a big “Good Rules for All” sign on my mantel. I hope this isn’t too confusing, but I knew if anyone had any ideas I would love, it would be you. As always, love your blog (regular reader). Thanks!

    1. Hello there!! I LOVE windows so much. :) Okay–I’m just going to throw out a bunch of ideas and possibilities, and perhaps one will spark what you have in mind!

      -make them into chalkboards
      -hang boxwood wreaths on them
      -instead of a quote, put a large monogram on one, and a large number (the amount of people in your family) on the other
      -remove the glass from the frames, hang rows twine from side to side (attached on the back of the frame), and attach your favorite pictures with clothespins

      I’ll keep thinking, but these are just a few that came to me right away. good luck!! Sounds like it’s going to be fabulous!!!

      Thank you SO much for reading! xoxo

  13. Hi Kiersty, I tried to subscribe, but never received the confirmation email…could you help out a bit?

    Thank you!

  14. Hi Kierste! I LOVE your blog!! I tried to join and rcv the same message about the burn feeder.. Would you be able to add me too please..
    I wrote you on another feed abour firemen birthday ideas and realized I probably asked in the wrong area.. My son’s 3rd birthday is coming up! I poked around but couldn’t find anything on birthdays..
    Thank! Jen :) xoxo

    1. Hi Jennifer! I’m so sorry that you weren’t able to subscribe! I’ve reached out to my subscription service to see if we could figure out what’s going on.

      As for the birthday parties, I don’t have a lot posted about them, but I found a few ideas for you that I thought were really cute!
      (I LOVE the red licorice fire hoses! So cute and clever!)
      (I adore the “matchsticks” made from pretzels dipped in white chocolate and sprinkles!)
      (some fun ideas)
      (free printables)

      Hope these help! Thanks so much for reading!! xoxo

  15. I love the round business cards you created. Could you please sell or share the template? Please let me know as I am really interested in them.

    1. Hi, Tracy!

      I don’t have a template to share or sell, I’m sorry! If you do a search on, there are quite a few different shops that have round business cards–I would definitely check there. Good luck!!!

  16. I realize it is a post from 2011, but I am trying to make the BOO beadboard sign. When I click on the link to print the background it takes me to the Scribd site. Is that what you intended? They charge for downloading..

    1. Jody, sorry about that! Back in 2011, I didn’t have another way to share files, and didn’t charge. Things have changed! I changed the original post and added a link to a jpg file you can download directly!!

  17. Please sign me up for your email posts. The link on the page brings up a window and when I click on ‘get me otta here’ nothing happens. Love your taste in crafts!

    thank you

    1. Thank you so much, Dee! I’m sorry about that–I’m working on trying to fix it, I’ve added your name to my email list, but you will see a confirmation email come through that you need to click on to make sure it starts. It should be from “Mad Mimi”, so you know what to look for. Let me know if you have any other questions! xoxoxo

  18. Hello!

    I was wondering if you could send me a copy of your chore list so I could adjust it to my household? I’m not very good at creating things like that, so yours would be great! I love the list.

    Thanks !

  19. just found your blog again and I just love it!! Thanks for all the many ideas and yummy recipes you have on there :) I was hoping you could help me with one of the recipes? I wanted to make the “sweet lemon water” but I don’t seem to find a recipe for quantities??? If you could send me those I would be eternally grateful!! I love all things LEMON also and I have tried the lemon bread (so yummy) and next I am trying the lemon cookies. Thank you again for sharing all these things with us.

  20. Dear Kierste,

    My name is Marina , i am starting a blog about Child Psychology in Cairo. I was wondering if i can link your article about age appropriate chores in my article about teaching Kids responsibility? Also, if i can translate the age appropriate chores chart into Arabic so i can write the same article in Arabic :)

    Love your blog,

  21. I’m having trouble following your directions. After you make the first bow, how do you go around the knot and create the second bow? There’s no way to anchor it and tighten it to make it look right. Just doesn’t make sense to me. Thanks.

  22. Hi was wondering if you sell ur dry erase activity books for kids I saw them and fell in love with them N I bet my girls will to
