Holiday Hiatus

Today is our last day of school for 2010!  We are wrapping up our unit on penguins, gingerbread men and all things holiday.  After today we are officially on vacation. 

Although I have a stack of holiday related books that we will be reading and Zachary is SO into his Legos this week building simple machines, I have a feeling that even though our "workbook work" is done, school will continue (they just don't realize it).  

The children are getting a lot of educational toys for Christmas, so I know that learning will continue even without my direction.  Have some crafts planned also.  

 I will most likely be taking a break from blog posting or just be very intermittent with it.  I will be working on our 2010 wrap up post, highlighting the homeschool year in review!   

Let's remember the true meaning of the season.  Why not make a Happy Birthday Jesus cake with the kids this week?  Volunteer at a shelter?  Donate money to your local food pantry?  I challenge all my blogland something to make a difference in someone else's life. 

I pray everyone has a safe and joy-filled Christmas.

I am sooo ready for a break. A break from school and a break from blogging.
About the little Coffee Can Christmas tree...just tell your husband that it's not "technically" a tree, but more like a little piece of grennery. LOL
Thanks for stopping by Sweet Country Life. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

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's HUGE and adorable. The printing is clear and impressive!�…
