PB Inspired Wall Print & Tutorial

I have been inspired by many talented bloggers that blog about design, home decorating and their projects.  I was inspired by the simplicity of Susan's blog post  (PB inspired pillows) at Home Road.  I want to make these pillows so bad. I went and bought the drop cloth from our local hardware store ($ 13.99 for a 4X 15 foot - soo much material).  


I was a little afraid of making the pillows just yet, as I wanted to practice first on something a little simpler.


I had this big spot on the wall in the dining room/school room and had an idea.  I took an old bulletin board (handmade by my mom years ago) decided to make a wall hanging with the process I will use on the pillows...check it out...






Finished product....see below for more picture on how I made this.




1st step - printed off the numbers on Microsoft Word, BIG. Then cut them out with my Exacto knife.


This is the old board...the kind with material and batting behind it. It had ribbon on it to hold pictures also. It is very well made (thanks mom).


Got out my drop cloth. 


Cut a piece big enough to cover the board and have some room to hot glue.  I also ironed all all the creases (as my mother reads this she is smiling, I hate to iron)


Taped down my handmade "stencils" (WHEN I make the pillows, I will use thicker paper so it's card like).


Used acrylic pant and used a small brush.  You can see how the flimsy paper did not work the best and the lines were shaky.  


Better view of the three not perfect by far.


Finished up the 1 and 2, easier and better.


Cut, hot glued the fabric to the bulletin board.  I also went back with a black Sharpie marker and fixed the numbers up a little. Worked great.






Whatcha think?



The only thing I would change is the paper I printed the numbers on. Using the heavier card stock paper for sure!

you are up way too early doing this...I don't know how you find time to create, I can only do it when everyone is asleep or out of the house!

Looks great too me.

I think it looks great! You did a wonderful job! I really love paint pens...have you seen those? They sell them by the acrylic paints at craft stores. They help with small areas (like numbers) and they come water or oil based. Great stuff! You did a wonderful job...!

I love that you practiced first before tackling the big project. You even made a mistake, learned from it, then fixed it...

Very creative and unique....

Take care,

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!�…
