My Favorite Things - Day 5



Day 5

If you missed any of the previous days, there is a link at the end of this post

Being a home educating mom I am always in search of a great curriculum, worksheets, unit studies and more for our children. Day 5 of My Favorite Things fits that bill!

Enchanted Homeschooling Mom



Meet Jill..in here words....

Hello! My name is Jill and I am the author and creator of the Enchanted Homeschool Mom Blog and the Enchanted Homeschooling Mom Member’s Only Website. Between the two I have my printable creations, original curriculum’s, lesson ideas, recipes, giveaways, and much, much more! I have a wonderful husband who works full time as a Civil Engineer outside of our home and is my best friend, our son Beck who cracks me up daily, our pistol packing princess Elizabeth whose strong will and determination amaze me, and our four furry children (dogs).
Homeschooling has become such an integral part of our life that it is just normal to me. I love the flexibility homeschooling affords and there is nothing I would trade in this world for since I get to see my children grow up every day and become confident, smart, and intuitive children. Please do not get me wrong because I have had my string of challenges along the way. The challenges that I have had to overcome range in magnitude from losing touch with friends who have children in brick and mortar schools who do want to understand homeschooling to having little support from family because they do not understand what homeschooling is. Each day I remind myself that I am blessed because my family directly benefits from my efforts to homeschool our children. The blessing is that Beck and Elizabeth are storing willed; compassionate; have great manners, and will always be a positive part of society as they grow older because they are being filled with our family’s beliefs as they grow and blossom in their education too!
I know that homeschooling is not always an easy path to follow, but we are guided down this path for our children because we want to make sure we provide them the best education and educational possibilities for our children. Even when Beck gets over analytical (like his Dad) and over thinks a problem or Elizabeth just blurts out an answer, right or wrong, I know that they are happy to be learning their lessons at ‘Mommy School’ because I can tailor their education to their current needs and focus on things that they like too. At any given moment in our homeschool day you will more than likely find my children, and furry children, happily hanging around.
I can so relate to Jill as a homeschooling mom. I love her lesson plans, printables and value the time and effort she puts into all she gives out to the world.  You don't have to be a home educating family to take advantage of what Jill brings to us all.    She offers a very affordable LIFETIME membership for her printables and it's so worth your money!  Her advice on meal planning, curriculum, lesson plans, homeschooling and more put her on My Favorite Things List! 
I encourage you to visit her site...spend some time looking around...You can connect with Jill at Facebook, Website, Twitter, and Pinterest.

Our aim is to create puzzles that not only will challenge you and your kids, but will teach you something along the way. Oh, and to make all of those puzzles, fully printable. We spend a lot of time looking at a computer screen so you don't have to!



Kim's puzzles are for children of all ages. With different levels of difficulty available so you can challenge the children.  She offers Holiday themed puzzles also!  Great for traveling in the car over the holidays!

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!�…
