Owl Craft - Easy for the kids

Whoo are you today?  Crafting is so much fun with the little ones. Especially if it's an Easy Craft like these Toilet Paper Roll Owls that we made!

One of the subjects I find myself lacking in lately is our Crafting.  With the holdiays approaching I should find it easy to think of crafts.  This week I turned to my Family Fun magazine and found this cute craft.  Using a paper towel roll for the body/ears and cupcake liners for the feathers - the girls had them put together in no time!

Items needed:

6 paper cupcake liners
1 toilet paper roll
white paper for eyes
Small piece of orange paper for beak

Step 1:  We liked our Owls short and fat so we cut about an inch off the original roll.  Fold in the top of the toilet paper roll so it makes your Owl ears (see pic one at top)

Step 2:  Cut 4 of the cupcake liners into quarters
(save the remaining two of them WHOLE for the wings)

Step 3: Cut off the rounded, middle part of the quartered liners so that you only have the accordion part of the liner left 
(for layering of the body)

Step 4: Begin at the bottom of the toilet paper roll and glue the cut liners onto the front, layering them. (making three layers all together)

Step 5: Cut out your two circles for eyes, using marker to make the eye balls.  Glue onto the top of the roll. Cut out beak and glue on between eyes. 

Step 6: Fold the remaining two liners in 1/2 and glue to the back
of the toilet paper roll.  These are the wings. 

Let dry!

What are some of your go to crafts for the "season"?

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!�…
