Lego Education and my Lego Maniac

Just as so many other boys and girls are, my son is a LEGO MANIAC!  He has entered contests, submitted photos, has every Lego magazine subscription, thousands of Lego bricks and kits.  He just can't stop building!  We use them for school projects also.   The vacuum loves them also.

In case you other Lego moms and dads were not aware Lego  few of the "perks" to belonging to the Lego Education website is that you get free copies of Special Education edition Lego magazines (FREE) which are great. In addition, you get lesson plans and ideas for school!   Also another aspect of Legos we love is the Design By Me site. This is just incredible. The kids can build their virtual design and then either order it (Lego sends you the directions and all the pieces - cost involved) or you can design something and then build it for real with your existing pieces. It's pretty cool. We use this for school also.

The other day my son came up to me and asked "Mom what can you think of that you LOVE to do with just me?"  I said "Go to the park". So about 20 mins later he came back with this for me.


A Lego Park

Complete with Monkeybars

A swing



And a sew saw

He was so proud of it and I love it. I told him I would be blogging about it! 

Do you have  LEGO Maniac in your home?

Here is the Renewable Energy project that he submitted this year to the challenge. He did not win, but i was so proud of him.

Hi Melis!
We love LEGOs in our home too, both my oldest daughter and son love them! My daughter is currently working on the LEGO creator house.

What an adorable gift your son made for you, the LEGO park! Great creativity and so sweet for sure! Thanks for the LEGO links too!
Hope you are having a blessed week!
Thanks too for linking up to the NO Ordinary Blog Hop I'm co-hosting. Would you consider putting the NO Ordinary Blog Hop button on your homepage somewhere so others can link up too ? :)
Thanks!

How fun! We get the Lego Club magazines and my kids go in spurts of being really into building or not. When they are building, look out! You can hardly walk on their floor. Legos are awesome! :)

My Little Ones are just getting interested in legos. They are wonderful. And, I am always amazed at all the creativity that they can come up with! I enjoyed looking at the lego pics. The park is creative.

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!�…
