HSV Garden Challenge Link UP

So happy to be participating in such a great link up party!  Here is what has happened in our "garden" since you last left us...(you can see our last months post here)

Working on the Planting Lapbooks from Homeschool Creations Preschool Corner.

Learning all about seeds and the parts of seeds.

Using seeds to make flower art.

Our Scholastic with sunflowers

Time to plant some more....using eggshells so we can plant directly into the ground.

what our kidney beans seeds look like today!

Continuing with our planting lapbooks

Our Spring is Here cute! 
( Tune of "If you are happy and you know it clap your hands..."
Try it out  You know you are!)

If you look you'll see Spring is all around.
See the flowers coming up from the ground.
See the blossoms on the trees
Hear the buzzing of the bees
If you look, you'll see Spring is all around.

Here is the link to The Homeschool Village!  Join in on the green thumb fun!

This looks awesome! I am sure the kids are loving all the planting and working in the dirt! Mine can't wait to get started next week!

Great activities! My MIL just mailed me some eggs to plant so I'm excited to see what comes of it =)

All of your activities look like everyone had so much fun. I like the idea of using the eggshells so you can move the seedlings straight into the ground. We made pots using toilet paper rolls so we can do the same.
Makes me want to plant a garden...

It's fun isn't it? Growing things with the kids has been such a wonderful learning experience for all of us. I can tell your little ones are really learning, Melissa. I admire all of the time and effort you put into making it meaningful for them. The lapbook looks great.

I love it! I will have to do a lap book like that! Looks like fun!

Looks like a lot of fun was had by all! I like the idea of planting in the eggshells.

You guys have been busy. I love the seed art!

Fun! I wish we'd used eggshells to start seeds this year. We also do a lot of seed sprouting in a Mason jar to eat with sandwiches and on salads, and growing microgreens, more useful educational activities for the littles.

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!�…
