Valentine Frog Craft & a Casserole

So as a lot of you know, we have been crafting all week in school!  Making all kinds of animals out of hearts. I think today's is the best yet!  




I used green foam sheets just because i had a bunch.  1 large heart for the body, two equally sized smaller ones for the feet, 1 medium heart for the head and 1 heard cut in half for the legs.  Stuff for eyes and a heart for his heart!


Glued them with Elmers glue stick


Wala....I made a pond for them to sit in, a few lilly pads etc....the sign says..."Welcome to Lilly Pad Lake"..

This will work out great with our themed Froggy Valentine's Day Party on Monday!

Hope you have liked our crafts so far this week! 




I also wanted to share this great casserole with you all!  This recipe was given to us from a friend who made it while I was recovering from a CSection. You can use left over ham, chicken, veggies, pretty much anything you want to....




Pasta Pie:


1 cup sour cream
1 cup shredded cheddar
2 cups favorite cooked pasta
2 cups of your favorite meat (we love it with ham)
1 can of you favorite veggie (we love it with peas)
1 can of cream of chicken (or celery) soup


Combine everything but the pasta together....then add the cooked pasta (I usually put a few tablespoons of the pasta water in there too).


For some extra crunch, I add breadcrumbs to the top before baking....bake at 350 for about 30 mins....this is sooo gooey and great on a cold day!   It also heats up well for left overs!


Enjoy!

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!�…
