Science Today = Making Halloween Soap

So for Science today we decided to make our Halloween Soap. I have had the supplies for a few weeks and thanks to another blog (sorry I can't remember who) we got this great idea.

We went to the local Dollar Tree and bought the silicone molds (they are really ice cub molds but worked great). We went to Michael's and got the glycieron chunk and colors. It was easy to do. Melting it took less than a minute, added the coloring, poured and waited for them to be hard (40 mins or so). Popped them out and there you have it. We did not do scents this time, but will next time. They are cute and will be a great addition to the bathroom counter!

We had some extra and poured that into silicone cupcake holders and made bigger soaps for the grandmas for a little gift when we see them! You could do any holiday, theme etc...sooo easy!

Thank you for the idea. I tutor children and they love crafts. I think I'll try this one. The kids will love it.

WOW thanks for the idea! I'm going to try doing this with my kiddos. We're moving next weekend, so hopefully we can get settled enough to make them for the new house before Halloween! They look like a lot of fun!

They look great! We've used candy molds for this and they work great too. Love the pumpkins! :)
How fun, Melissa! We may have to do this if I can find some molds. Thanks for sharing!

Shining the Spotlight - Finding Home Farms

Today at Woodwater Farmhouse, I am sharing with you another company that I feel you should know about.  


I first learned about Finding Home Farms on Instagram. Little did I know, Laura, one of the owners of Finding Home Farms, lives local to me, in the Hudson Valley of New York. 
You can read all about Laura and her lovely family at her blog about page. 
 I immediately knew that I had to try their products in my home. I have grown to love their products (shop), Laura's sense of style and her blog. 
Can we just stop now and talk about their packaging first.  It speaks to you before even trying the products. Simple, organic and calming.  Isn't it just darling with the little dove.
sigh....insert smile

I love her blog tagline - Gather Create Connect - that says it all, there in three little words. YOU already know before going forward that you are in for a special treat. 
I am only going to speak to a few of their many products because these are what we use in our home with our family.

Happy New Year and welcome back to our first
Shining the Spotlight
for 2017! 

 I hope you all enjoyed your holidays and are settled back into your routines.







Today I am so excited to introduce you to a company that has such a wonderful purpose behind it!  Jessica Griffis is a 17 year old college student paying her way through college selling Hilltop Design simple, natural and homemade products.  Jessica was also home educated!!! (dear to my heart)

Ya'll know I am all about the package as first impressions are so important. Don't you just love this sticker/stamp that she had on her package!  Spoke to me before I even opened it up and smelled the freshness of the products. 

I was impressed with the smell of the products, not overwhelming and artificial smelling at all. I felt safe using them on myself and my children. 

There are lip balms, lotions, scrubs, body butter, bath bombs and more.  The scrubs rival any other name brand and the bath bombs are THE BOMB!   The products are very …

Today at Woodwater Farmhouse, I am sharing with you a company that  not only meets but exceeds my expectation.  In service and product. 
Rustic Honey




The owner's name is Lauren Moran and I can see why her shop is so successful!  Rustic Honey is a lifestyle boutique. They offer women's clothing and accessories, children's wear, home goods, vintage finds, handmade gifts and more!  Let's look at this business card first. First impressions are everything in my book.  (I did not get a picture of the adorable chalkboard wrapping that the box was wrapped in but it was so cute!)


It's cute, to the point and shows her style.


Not even talking about the farmhouse towel that I ordered yet...but come on a hand written note to me personally and has all her social media outlets on there also. Clever!  On the opposite side of this personalized note is the cutest quote and picture. 

Ok I am getting to the towel I ordered..it's HUGE and adorable. The printing is clear and impressive!�…
