Wrapping up the Week - Collage Friday

Welcome to our weekly collage in pictures.   It was a snowy week on and off and the Superbowl kicked it all off last Sunday!

So glad the Broncos won! 

A little glimpse into our family party.  We had karaoke, food, drinks, the game on on 3 TV's, video games going on another..over 30 people came and celebrated with us. It was great fun!

Monday we had our Chinese New Year teachings and a lot of book reading. Seems like we are at the library all the time these days!  Molly finished a chapter book also, which is a HUGE thing for her, as she hates reading 8(

Yes I am the squirrel whisperer and they know it. They come every day and I feed them. They come up to the window by the computer and let me know they are ready to eat. LOL   



Zachary's latest LEGO Stop Motion video


Lots of Legos (I feel it's the same pictures every week..lol) Those are Molly's IPHONE Cases she is making. Cute, right!? Now I just noticed that there is the same picture of Sammie eating her Cheerios with her chopsticks in both collages..LOL





Our Valentine Stop Motion video - Where Love Grows




We have our homeschool Valentine Party today (pics from a few years ago) Fun making and using chocolate dough on Friday.




Here is the recipe for Chooclate dough that we are playing with today! 

One thing I started doing recently is separating out my Pins on Pinterest for homeschooling by month. If you are interested in finding some activities, worksheets, projects for the children, I invite you to check out these Pin worthy pages:

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!�…
