Valentine's Day School Party

Happy Valentine's Day School Party!

Today's Party was changed at the last minute from our home
to the home of the other HSing family that joined us....

The kids got to dip strawberries...

Painting Craft

I made push pops this morning with Hershey Kisses on top.

We finally got to give away our Heart Crayons we made. 

Always a little time for dress up!

Be Blessed!

Once again on my quest to only have a $ 10 budget for a school party...I have DONE IT!

I had paper products left over from last years' party so cost this year was ZERO for them. I did buy a new table cloth at the Dollar Tree.  I had all decorations left over from years' past, so nothing was new this year. Cost: $ 1.00

For my favors I made homemade heart shaped crayons and downloaded a FREE Printable from Shindig Parties to Go for the goodie bag topper.  To make the crayons I used broken crayons from the children's school crayon boxes, broke them into smaller pieces and put those pieces into a heart shapped silocone cupcake cup, baked at 250 until melted, cooled and then bagged 'em up! Cost: $ 0.00

Lunch: Pasta with red sauce, a salad .  Our friends supplied the fruit and carrots for the kids. Made for less than $ 1 a person! (8 of us ate)  Treats: Made push pops cupcakes and frosted.  (already had both items in the pantry) Cost $ 8.00

The craft was the painting pages and those I got on sale at Michaels Crafts for $ 1.00 for all 8 of them.  Cost: $ 1.00

I will make sure that I seek out some deep discounted Valentine's Day items at Target and CVS after the holiday also!

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!�…
