Milestone 100,000

How often to look at your "stats"?  
Do you really care where your blog traffic comes from?  
Or what people are interested in reading about on your blog?  

Today (as I try to do at least 1 time per week)  I checked the stats on the blog and we went over 100,000! Now that is a HUGE accomplishment, I think?   HOWEVER, after looking to see what posts got the most "action"...they weren't the homeschooling themed posts, they were the party and craft posts.  

Now I can look at this two ways...obviously I am happy and blessed that so many people stop by and read something that is on the blog, but I can't help but wonder, can I do something to increase the "numbers" on the homeschooling themed posts since this is the type of blog I have?
  I also "toy" with the idea of "should I have a party blog too?"  with tips and information and pictures of the party stuff - separated than the homeschooling one?  Can I add something else to my "plate"?



What do stats mean to you?  I would love your input on all this randomness I am throwing up at y'all...

I look at stats to see if anybody reads my silly blog. I found that most are family, which is cool with me. If I have a really low month, I make sure I send reminders out. What bugs me the most is that i get traffic, just no comments.

I understand where you are coming from. I just started a new blog myself to try and separate my education and teaching of my children issues from face book and I am too looking for ways to get support and traffic. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

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!�…
