Dino Valentine Craft & a reminder!

Great day in school today!  We went to our local sports complex (Primo Sports) and had an hour of free playtime (Free Play, NOT FREE - cost is $ 5 for all kids in your family for 1 hour - GREAT PRICE FOR MY PURSE!)...we were the only ones there so the kids had the entire soccer field and basketball court to themselves...we played follow the leader, Simon Says, soccer, b'ball and did some b'ball drills. Had a blast! This is a great alternative when it's too cold to go out and play!

Yet another successful day with crafting with the children ...After we got home from our open gym playtime, we ate lunch, opened up the V'Day presents that came in the mail from Bubby (my mom) and then had time for our sit down work while Sammie napped. Today we made Dinosaurs - Stegosaurus to be exact!  Using a simple Steg cut out we added hearts to the back for the "back plates" of the dino. Kids loved it and it turned out so cute!

The book on Dinosaurs that Zachary opened today from Bubby as his V'Day gift. How appropriate for our craft!

We then had time to make our Valentines for some people that we love! (shhh can't say who....they might read this blog....hehehe)

Notice: Molly in her ballet outfit (which goes on as soon as we get home from

One last thing....

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!�…
