Friday Pinterest Favorites



This week has been busy getting everything ready for the last week of school, with Father’s Day coming up SOON I figured I would show you my favorite Father’s Day gifts and free printables.

PicMonkey daddy day collage

Isn’t this basket too cute…find it here.

LOVE this from here.

Find this cute idea on her photo blog here.

This printable book idea is just too cute…find it here.

and for those Grandpas in you life…

I don’t know a Grandpa that wouldn’t like this!


This week I am going to share my latest pins-there is no theme…just COMPLETELY random.

Such cute ideas for neighbor gifts…things that you may have laying around, and ideas that won’t break the bank! read more here

My youngest son has eczema on the inside of his knees and elbows….we have a cream for it that seems to work but it is pricey-so I have been trying these ideas and so far so good.

such great ideas to take to people even if not going through hard times…new babies, elderly, busy, lots of reasons to bless families with a planned meal.  The link on pinterest was not accurate so I went and found the right one–go read more here.

These are the yummiest bread sticks EVER!!  I have made them 3 times now (twice in one day by request from the littles)

I made these yesterday and took them to my sons motocross race….and now they are gone!  So so yummy and just how I remembered them from elementary school.

I thought these Broken Crayon Candles would be so fun for the boys to make…(and for my sanity to get rid of some of those broken crayons in the drawer)

it’s that time of year again….


This year is flying by I can’t even believe that school will be out in three short months. In four short months I will have a SEVEN year old—oh goodness gracious, Well excited to see what we get accomplished this Break!…I plan to finish a lot of projects, organization, and CLEANING!!

I have printed some cute decor prints to re-decorate a little for spring.  I need to put them in frames, I printed a checklist for Little T- for morning, afternoon, and night. I am really trying to ingrain a routine into him so I don’t have to sound like a broken record all day long.  I don’t think I am asking too much- he is six now-and should know what is expected of him.

I really want to make a growth chart out of reclaimed wood-organize our linen closet, get a after-school snack system going, and a reward bin filled!  A few months ago we started a punch card system-and a 6-dime-a-day electronic system, (maybe a post about both of these soon) so far they have been working pretty well, except the bin needs re-filled.  Also I need to be better about really sticking to *when you are good and finish your stuff, then it results in a reward*

My list is a mile long I feel like-

*home-made gifts for 2 friends babies

*re-claimed growth chart x3

*organize linen closet

*2 crib quilts for two adorable little girlies

*spring cleaning

*spice cupboard

*pantry labels

*sew a few tote bags

*frame daily checklist

*gallery wall

*spring decor

*sand and paint dining table and benches

*cut some more limbs off our crazy amount of trees


Ok so I guess we will start with this list and see how far we get this week 🙂

how sweet is this…i have had my eyes open for cute neatral bathroom decor since the main bath is also the boys’ bath I can’t have it too kidish-this is perfect, functional and beautiful!

I have a few friends that have buns in the oven-one has two in her oven, so even though i have already gifted her a few goodies..these are so stinkin cute!

I think that is all for this Friday…as you can see there was no rhyme or reason to todays favorites just random tidbits of what I am LOVING


This week is a little bit of a spring inspired mix

outdoors, spring decor, organization, and a craft for a BFF

isn’t this amazing,  letting the boys collect tons of pine-cones for a planter instead of just filling up jars, pockets, buckets, and hats

{sorry I can’t find the link for this post}

This is adorable for those rainy boots so the water can go right through the rocks find the link and tutorial  HERE

I know I know super random…a cute little vintage Camping Trailer…but really it is SO cute I guess this crazy favorite has evolved from my want for a camper/trailer and need to go camping (not in a tent) can you imagine? you could camp anywhere and it’s about the same size as our 4 man tent 🙂 I found this post on Pinterest but the link is now closed 😦

I am on the look out for adorable knobs…It is harder than I thought, To find something that will go together, yet not have a pattern or be to matchy, matchy  haha  I LOVE this one with the random girly touch of the flower knob.

awe … I WILL make these – Oregon and Nevada – {Miss you Courtney 🙂 } find the link HERE

a few new projects

We at the Edwards House have been crazy busy, as of March 5th (great bday present) I have a part time job, and I was helping a friend with some day care, I knew that having a job was going to be a little more work-but I didn’t think this much haha-I think getting ready for work (daddy and the boys) is more work than actually getting myself ready.  Even with all of the extra work, I LOVE IT so far. Not to mention the little extra money that goes along with it 😉

A couple weeks ago I made Trenton’s little friend a marker roll for his Birthday-I was planning on a crayon roll but then Trenton informed me that Brody likes markers better-so … Marker Roll it is.


Then of course Trenton wanted one too-but he wanted a colored pencil roll…
