Make It Monday - Christmas Crafting with the Cameo


A few years ago I received the Silhouette machine as a gift from my mother and my life has never been the same...hehe..ok maybe I am exaggerating a bit, but honestly, this machine is the bomb.


I found these enamel cups at an antique shop but you can use paper cups also.  By themselves they are so cute, but I knew they could be even cuter with a little help. Using my Cameo and some vinyl....



I transformed these cute cups into fun whimsy cocoa bar cups, for the children, for the holidays.  Here is what I did - I bought the images from the Silhouette store (usually .50 to a 1.00 per image but then you own them forever) and cut onto vinyl.  Stick to the cups and there you have it.  (not dishwasher safe) They turned out so cute, don't you think? 



Pair them up with some help-yourself cocoa, marshmallows and cookies and you have the perfect Night Before Christmas cocoa bar for the kiddos. 


Maybe even a peppermint stick or two or maybe some chocolate spoon stirrers. 

BONUS PROJECT: 


Here is how I decorated my Kitchen Aid mixer for the holidays (this was two years ago and still holds up to this day).  Sorry for the color, it was with an old IPhone and the camera was not the best.
It turned out so festive! 

Here is an example of how I cut some vinyl and put onto paper cups for New Years Eve. 


Do you have a Silhouette machine?  What kind of projects do you do with it? 

Happy Holidays and have fun crafting!

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!�…
