Son of a Nutcracker!

Since we’re only about 1 day from Christmas, I figured it was high time that I shared about our Christmas decorations! The past few years we’ve had a tree, some garland, and wreath on the door. I’d say my efforts were a mediocre 3 on the scale of Christmas cheer. But this year, gosh. This year is a solid 8.  We upped our game and brought the Christmas cheer in full force this year!

Thanks to Josh’s awesome handiwork, we added this amazing backlit star this year. We were inspired by this one on Beyond The Picket Fence and couldn’t wait to create our own. Because we had a big open space to work with, we made ours a bit larger and added some sweet backlighting. The wood is from a reclaimed picket fence that Josh found and cleaned up. After Christmas, we’re thinking of repurposing the boards into another art project. Promise I’ll share those details when it’s time!

The star is a simple square that Josh fastened onto 2″ x 2″ pieces behind. It’s backlit with a strand of leftover Christmas lights. The only thing we purchased for this project was a $3 spool of ribbon! A pretty great project if you ask me! :)

Christmas at the Edwards | Simply Mrs. EdwardsI’ve been seeing a ton of fun chalkboard ideas all over, but since my chalk hand writing leaves a lot to be desired, I cheated a bit and used this transfer trick to write the Christmassy message below. If you doubt your writing skills, I highly recommend this transfer technique! The only thing I did differently was use a chalk pen to fill in my lines instead of regular chalk. My finished product may not look as rustic as it could, but I was lacking the patience and steady hand necessary to trace over the whole thing in smear-able chalk. I may re-do this again with real chalk someday, but I’m perfectly happy with the way this version turned out!

Last year I made this fun Christmas card wreath out of a pack of Dollar Tree clothes pins, a little green spray paint, some red beads, some bailing wire, and red ribbon. One of the easiest projects ever! I’m happy to say that since this photo was taken we’ve filled up the entire wreath with fun cards from family and friends!

Among other fine qualities, our house has a really odd living room with multiple doors on each wall. The only place that our TV fits is right in front of a coat closet that we don’t really use. I got tired of people asking why our TV was in front of a door, so earlier this year I made a curtain to hang in front of the door. This was also the point in which I got fed up with our dark redwood walls and decided to cover 2 walls in burlap. Thankfully both projects turned out great and we no longer receive weird comments or looks when someone comes into our house!

Thanks to some scissor wielding friends who were over one night, we ended up with a stack of beautiful paper snowflakes that were just begging to be displayed. It only made sense to hang them in front of the curtain that’s in front of the coat closet door. Duh, right? Thankfully, that experiment turned out great too!

If  you’re on Pinterest, it’s very likely that you’ve seen tutorials on how to replicate mercury glass with mirrored spray paint and a spray bottle of vinegar/water. Well, I took a stab at it with some vases and candle holders and kind of failed. When they say that you MUST use the Krylon mirrored spray paint for it to turn out, they’re not kidding. I used some Rustoleum silver spray paint and my pieces turned out lacking some pizzaz (I’m pretty sure that’s the first time I’ve ever used the word pizzaz…) I honestly really like how these vases and candle holders turned out, but they’re nothing like real or faux mercury glass. I think it has to do with the air temperature I was spray painting in and that I used the wrong type of spray paint. Oh well, ya win some, ya fail some.

I really like the arrangement and that I get to display it on some antique doilies from my Mom. The view below is my absolute favorite this year! It’s what I see every night sitting on the couch :)

Here are a few photos of the living room as a whole (this room is hard to photograph!)…

Although we spend the majority of our time in the living room, a little bit of Christmas cheer spilled over into the dining room too. On the china hutch I simply hung some paper garland that I made last year…

All it is is circle punches of scrap booking paper and Trader Joe’s bags sewed together…seriously, so simple.

The other thing I added is a Merry Christmas banner that we got at Target a few years back hanging on an old window from my parent’s house. Christmas at the Edwards | Simply Mrs. Edwards IMG_3266

My favorite Christmas tradition so far has been buying a Christmas ornament from our travels throughout the year. Hopefully someday our tree will be filled with ornaments from around the country and world! These three are from our trips in 2012:

These ornaments and many others were placed on our tree with love and care while we donned our antler headbands and turned on a Christmas movie. Ahh, I love tradition!

So, did you up your decorating game in 2012? What is your favorite Christmas tradition? Can you believe that Christmas is TOMORROW?!

Singing loud for all to hear,
Mrs. Edwards

Homegrown Apple Pie

We spent this past weekend at my parents home in the Sierra Nevada Mountains. Their house is built in the middle of a 100+ year old fruit orchard. The original orchard was a huge area of land, but with parcels of land being sold and roads and homes being built, the majority of the fruit trees have either been cut down or engulfed by the surrounding forest. My parents own about 3 acres of the land and have made a point to keep the heritage of the orchard going. They have reclaimed and trimmed back old, abandoned trees and have seen amazing crops in recent years! This weekend we spent some time in that orchard picking apples. Homegrown, organic, delicious, apples. Here are a few photos of our apple picking afternoon…

One of biggest things I admire about my Mom is that she is incredibly talented in the kitchen and genuinely enjoys passing her knowledge on to me. I think it brings her a special kind of joy to see her daughter learning and loving the art of homemaking. This weekend she taught me how to make apple pie. It may sound crazy, but I had never made an apple pie before! A true homemaking crime, I’m sure! We used fresh golden delicious apples from the orchard and a tried and true recipe from my Mom’s arsenal to make the most delicious pie. It was a very simple process and is a recipe that I will be making again, very soon! 

Homegrown Apple Pie

Apple Filling  (my Mom’s recipe)

  • 7-8 medium/large golden delicious apples, peeled, cored, and sliced
  • 3/4 – 1 c. water
  • 1 c. sugar (brown or white)
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 2 cinnamon sticks + 1 tsp. cinnamon powder
  • 1/8 tsp. ground cloves

Pie Crust (adapted from Martha Stewart Living, Nov. 2012 issue)

  • 1 c. (2 sticks) unsalted butter, chilled and cut into small pieces
  • 2 1/2 c. flour
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. sugar
  • 1/2 c. ice water

Combine apples, water, sugar, vanilla, cinnamon, and cloves in a medium pot. Simmer 20 minutes or until tender. Drain excess liquid and set aside.

Place butter pieces on a parchment-lined baking sheet and freeze until hard (15-20 mins). Once butter is hard, combine flour, salt, sugar, and butter in a food processor.

Pulse until mixture is coarse with some blueberry-sized clumps. Add ice water and immediately pulse until water is just incorporated.

Squeeze a small amount in your hand to make sure it holds together.

Lay out 2 pieces of plastic wrap. Empty half the dough onto each piece.

Fold edges of wrap together and gather dough into a disk. Refrigerate or freeze until firm.

Remove pie dough from fridge and partially unwrap. Place disc on a piece of parchment, leaving the plastic on one side. Roll dough into a circle about 1/2-inch bigger than your pie pan.

Press one piece of dough into your pan, leaving edges hanging over the edge.

Cut the second piece of dough into 3-inch wide strips.

Add filling into pan and spread evenly.

Weave dough strips into a lattice pattern over filling and press overhang onto the edge of crust. Trim the edge, fold under, and crimp.

Sprinkle with sanding sugar and bake at 375 F for 30-45 minutes, or until crust is golden brown. Be sure to place your pie on a parchment lined sheet pan to catch any drips!

Let cool and ENJOY

This pie will most definitely be making an appearance again very soon. I may or may not have eaten pie for breakfast this morning. It’s healthy, right?! My Mom happily told me that I am now in charge of pies for Thanksgiving. With great baking, comes great responsibility apparently…

Eating Pie,

We All Scream for (homemade) Ice Cream!

The past few days I’ve been trying to come up with different ways to use these beauties. Smoothies, pancakes, whole-right-outta-the-fridge, you name it. One of the best uses I came up with was homemade ice cream. Real, 500% fat, creamy ice cream…you know, the good stuff!

Growing up, our annual 4th of July tradition was a BBQ and homemade ice cream at one of our friends houses. The entire church was invited and everyone was encouraged to bring their ice-cream freezer and their favorite flavor creation. There would be a multitude of flavors, but my favorite was always the strawberry. I would eat my little heart out, and then regret it on the couple mile hike to watch the fireworks. It was all worth it though. The memories I have of that annual tradition will last a lifetime!

I thought I’d share a fool proof homemade ice cream recipe with you. Be prepared…it’s full o’fat, sugar and everything you’re not supposed to eat. But give it a try! Make some to share with friends and family to celebrate 4th of July! Create some memories!

Homemade Strawberry Ice Cream

  • 1 pint fresh strawberries- stemmed and sliced
  • 3 Tbsp. lemon juice
  • 1 c. of sugar, divided
  • 1 c. whole milk
  • 2 c. heavy cream
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  1. In a small bowl, combine strawberries with lemon juice and 1/3 c. of the sugar. Stir gently and allow to macerate for about 2 hours.
  2. Using a mixer or whisk, combine milk and the remaining sugar until the sugar is dissolved (about 1-2 minutes). Stir in heavy cream plus the juice from the strawberries and the vanilla.
  3. Turn your ice cream maker on and pour the mixture in (We have this Cuisinart ice cream freezer. It’s fantastic and I highly recommend it! You freeze the inner bowl, so there’s no need to mess with ice and rock-salt.)
  4. Let mix for 25-30 minutes, or until it begins thickening up. During the last 5 minutes of freezing add the sliced strawberries.
  5. If the mixture isn’t at your preferred thickness, empty the mix into another bowl, cover with plastic wrap and place in the freezer. Be sure to lay the plastic directly on the mixture to avoid ice crystals from forming on your mix.
  6. Scoop and ENJOY!

I hope you have a wonderful Independence Day! Have fun, be safe, and make some lasting memories with friends and family!

With Love,
Mrs. Edwards

Where Your Heart Is

Heart Map Art // Simply Mrs. Edwards

{via instagram}

Since I got an iPhone a few years ago, I have used an old fashioned paper map a grand total of zero times. Don’t get  me wrong, I love maps. Almost as much as I love owners manuals (ask my parents, I used to read them front to back for funsies. Don’t judge, I was homeschooled!) I’ve had an old map sitting around just begging to be put to good use and thanks to Pinterest, I was (p)inspired. Josh and I are from two opposite ends of the state, but our love story began and currently lives right in the middle. We both lovelovelove our hometowns, as well as where we currently live. What better way to show where pieces of our hearts lie than to map it out and put it on our wall?

Once I finished repurposing my map, I had the idea to make one as a gift for my Mom. Both of her kids flew the coop and landed in different parts of the state (3.5 hrs away and 8 hrs away). You have to understand, if my Mom could, she would live next door to both of her kids. Whenever she and my Dad get a chance, they pack up and head to either my house or my brothers. She cries every time they leave. She’s got a big heart, but it’s currently spread across the state. I know it’s been a tough season for her, not having any of her kids (geographically) close to her. Maybe that won’t be the case forever, but for now her heart is in three different places. She’s greatly loved in all of those places, by her kids, her family, her friends. My mom is probably the kindest, most generous person I know and she not only shares that love and generosity with her family, but everyone that she comes in contact with! She loves and she is loved back! My goal with this art piece was to remind my Mom where her heart lies and where she is genuinely loved from. You can take a moment to wipe the tears from your eyes now…

This project was very easy, and very inexpensive. Like it took me about 10 minutes and cost me about $3.00. That’s my kind of art project!

Supplies Needed:

  • Map (If you’re a AAA member, you can get a state map for free at any office!)
  • Picture frame (I got mine at Walmart for $3.00)
  • Scissors
  • Heart shape template
  • Extra cardstock
  • Glue stick & tacky glue
  • Your favorite scrap fabric
  • Pencil
  • *If you need to trim your photo mat, you’ll need a straight edge, exacto knife and cutting mat, too.

Step 1: Gather your supplies.

Heart Map Art // Simply Mrs. Edwards

Step 2: Choose which areas you would like to feature and trace your heart template onto your map. Also trace your hearts onto plain cardstock. Cut out each heart and use your glue stick to glue the cardstock pieces to the back of your map pieces (to stiffen the map pieces up). I’ve even included a heart template for you to use. Just click, save, and print! You’re welcome.

Step 3: If your frame has a mat and the mat has a divider, you’ll want to trim it to fit your hearts. My mat was designed to hold (2) 4×6 photos, so I just cut the center divider out with an exacto knife and voila, a perfectly sized mat!

Step 5: With your tacky glue, glue your hearts and your mat onto your fabric piece.

Step 6: Place everything into your frame and find the best place to display your art!

You can do this project with places that you’ve traveled to, placed you’ve never been to but want to see, where different friends or family members live, etc. I hope that every time I look at mine hanging on the wall I’m prompted to pray for our family in those places. I hope that you enjoy this project! How else have you re-used old maps? Were you (p)inspired like me?!

With a mapped out heart,
Mrs. Edwards

J&T’s Wedding

You are cordially invited to my very own DIY wedding!
{November 14, 2010}

Planning our wedding was fun, kind of stressful and a huge learning experience all at the same time! Our families really stepped up to the plate and wowed us with their DIY skills- from making 200+ jars of jam, to creating decorations out of heirlooms, to catering a meal for 230 people, to creating bridesmaid dresses. Our family is unbelievable and we couldn’t have pulled this off without them! We made use of things we owned, things borrowed and things found at great prices and came in under our $5,000 budget!

Without further ado, lets take a look at some pictures!

We bought our flowers from Boulder Creek Flowers, a distributor of locally grown flowers. I wasn’t too concerned with having a specific type of flower, instead I wanted to have things that were in-season and were loosely based on a yellow color scheme. My bouquet was a mixture of tulips and tuberose. The tuberose had SUCH a heavenly scent! Our good friend, Callan did such a great job on the arrangements!

My dress! Ah…I loved it! If I could find a reason to wear it again I’d jump at the chance. It was the first one I tried on and was exactly what I wanted: simple, lacy, and gorgeous.

My girls looked a-mazing! My awesome/fantastic/amazingly talented mom made their dresses from scratch! I found the inspiration over here, but there was no way in h-e-doublehockeysticks that we were going to pay close to $300 per dress! I loved the design of the dress because it was so versatile and could fit so many different body styles. Each of my girls wore theirs tied in a different way and each looked fantastic. We were able to find a sewing tutorial over here and in the end, the dresses cost around $30 each for materials. Score!

My girls and I wore TOMS wedges. I love the one-for-one mission behind TOMS, so to be able to support them by having 6 pairs of their shoes at my wedding was so cool!

My niece and flower girl, Livy, wore the 6th pair, Tiny-TOMS :)
(P.S. my mom found her dress for $7 at Target and my sis-in-law spruced it up with a big yellow bow on the back. So cute for a 1 1/2 yr old!)

We wanted to get something that our groomsmen wouldn’t have to break the bank on, that would look good with my girl’s dresses, and that they could wear again. We finally settled on a grey cotton shirt and simple khaki’s from the Gap, a yellow tie and Van’s (we even got itty bitty Van’s for our ring bearer and nephew, Zack!) Josh’s getup was a little more challenging to find though since we wanted him to stand out a little. After much deliberation, we had him wear a white shirt, khaki’s, yellow tie and a sweet jacket we found on sale at Men’s Warehouse. We searched high and low for that jacket (seen to the left of the grey shirt below) and boy did it deliver. My guy looked dang good!

Our photographer, Sam Wells, is one of Josh’s best friends. His work is unbelievable and he made a point to catch the little details of our big day. Case in point, this shot of our rings on a cracked redwood round. Love!

Sam caught the soft, vintagey vibe I was wanting in our photos. He scoured our venue for the best sites and lighting and did a baller job (word usage straight from Sam’s vocab).

My sweet, sweet Aunt Jeanie made my veil. She added tiny pearls along the edge to add to the vintage feel.

Such a happy guy! He even shaved for the occasion (and hasn’t been clean shaven since haha)


The location and time of year made for some amazing photos, if I do say so myself. Our big day just so happened to land on the warmest day in November. Go us!

Our crew made our special day perfect. To have our closest friends surrounding us and cheering us on was amazing!

Josh’s sweet family:

My sweet family:

Ok, so now details of the ceremony! Our venue, Mount Hermon, is a camp & conference center nestled in the Santa Cruz mountains. The place holds special significance to both Josh and I individually but also as a couple. It’s where we live &
work, where we met, and where we started dating. So it was only fitting to have our wedding there! The ceremony was held in the Auditorium, a building that was built in the 40s or 50s. It has great rustic charm and fit our theme perfectly. The great part about having the ceremony there was that it didn’t need too much decorating. We used antique french doors, an original window that came out of my parents house when they remodeled, a bunch of mason jars that belonged to my grandmother, and a great piece of vintage furniture that we borrowed from a friend. Other than the lumber to build the frames that the jars and window hung from, we did not purchase any of the items seen on the stage!

Here’s a shot of the wagon Livy rode down in (Zack wouldn’t agree to sit with her so he walked along side haha). My dad made chalk boards out of some old gold frames a friend gave us. Super easy and super cute!

We hung different sized jars at different lengths to add interest to the dark back drop:

The sign that hung above us was the theme verse at Mount Hermon for 2010. I think it will always be a reminder to Josh and I of how good the Lord has been to us and continues to be!

One of the biggest highlights of the day was to have my now father-in-law perform the ceremony. His words were so sweet and so meaningful and will forever be a treasured memory of the day! Having his blessing over our marriage is so, so cool.

We had a 3 piece band (piano, violin and cello) that played a hymn compilation while our guests were filling the Auditorium. They also played Coldplay’s “Viva la Vida” as we exited the building…so fun!

Right after the ceremony, we all headed out to take a group photo. I was so worried about the logistics of it, but it went so smoothly! We used this photo in our thank you notes and its a great reminder of how many people love us!

Now…on to the reception! Everything about our reception makes me happy- from the cotton candy and popcorn, to the photobooth, to the Arizona iced tea we used to toast with. Everything there was a piece of who we are and what we love. We had food that we loved and desserts that were to die for (no plain jane cake here). We had fun with the photobooth and even had s’mores for our guests outside. We had close friends playing music while our guests ate and I was serenaded by Coldplay’s “Green Eyes.” I wish we could go back to the day and spend more time enjoying everything!

Josh, a graphic designer, created this “brand” that we used throughout our wedding. Our guests first saw it on our invitations and then saw it again on this h-u-g-e sign that welcomed them to the reception. Once again, our friends and family stepped up and helped us big time when it came to painting this thing. Thanks guys!

They also saw the brand on their popcorn bags- thanks to a custom designed stamp from rubberstampchamp.com (we also used the same stamp on our thank you notes):

Our centerpieces were a simple 12″ x 12″ square of plywood with burlap stapled on, lace edging hot glued and a piece of colored fabric to top. We topped that with a fantastic centerpiece of in-season flowers made by Callan and a jar of pretzel sticks.

Along with a simple photo filled guest book, we created a fingerprint tree to remember the day. My incredibly talented sis-in-law drew the outline of the tree and Josh and I started off the fingerprints with ours that were turned into little bride and groom blue birds…adorable right? This piece now hangs in our home and will always be a reminder of that day.

Here’s the brand again on our favors…jam! My mom, sis-in-law Sarah and I made tons and tons and tons of jam! It was a long process but so worth it! Not only did we get to create something sweet for our guests, but I got to learn the art of canning which is definitely not something every girl knows how to do! We gave our guests options of strawberry, apricot, plum and blackberry. YUM! We displayed them in some antique suitcases and wooden boxes…all owned or borrowed.

Not only did my mom make my bridesmaid’s dresses, made tons o’ jam, and helped me with decorations, she also catered the reception! She is a woman of MANY talents and I am SO grateful for her! She was able to cook for 200+ people for around $2.00/person. Unbelievable! And boy, was it good….yum! For serving the food, we used old wooden fruit boxes with damask fabric liners (courtesy of Wonder Mom) and Jadeite borrowed from my friend Katie.

Both Josh and I have a slight addiction to Arizona Iced Tea. So, what better thing to toast with at our wedding?!

I didn’t want to go the traditional route of a huge iced cake for dessert, so we opted for a small two person strawberry shortcake for us and cobbler, pies and cheesecake for our guests. I don’t think anyone was disappointed in our choice!! Our cake was made by our lovely friend Patrice- she’s great and the cake was de-lish!


One of the funnest parts of the reception was our photobooth! My BFF’s husband used his camera with a tripod and guests dressed in items that we raided from Mount Hermon’s skit closet (it is a camp, after all). I made the mustaches from felt, hot glue, and dowels…they were a hit!

We handed out little cards that had a Picasa link where guests could download the photos. Our photobooth made multiple Christmas cards in 2010! :) You can see all of our photobooth pics over here.

Our getaway was through a tunnel of cheering family and friends. It was a perfect end to a perfect day!

Josh’s fully restored ’54 Chevy was an excellent getaway vehicle!

We had a blast at our own wedding and I really think that’s all that matters. Our family and friends were such a huge part of our day and nothing would have been possible without them. It was perfect in so many ways and I wouldn’t change a thing…except maybe getting to eat more of our cake! :)

Happily,
Mrs. Edwards
