Ok, I clicked over here because I think that your pig pancakes are absolutely enchanting! But then I got sucked into this post. I love this! This is the first time I've seen these in color. Love it! :-)


Thank you so much for sharing this with us. I wanted some way to take time out of our day to focus on Christ leading up to Easter when my girls have outgrown the board book Bible lessons that Lydia is learning from now. I had also wanted some "countdown" like we have at Christmas to such a tremendous celebration on Resurrection Day. I hadn't really found something yet for either. Then I decided to give this craft a try last weekend. I tried to braid mine but ended up twisting it. It has already hardened and broken apart so it may not survive to be decorated on Easter, but even so I am so glad that we are counting down this way. It gives us a time set aside each morning at the breakfast table to have an Easter devotion before we start our homeschool lessons. I have just chosen verses about sin, our need for a Savior, grace and forgiveness, etc. to point us to Him. Then we sing a hymn or praise chorus and pray. Simple enough for Lydia to sit through but trying to get Sarah and Hannah thinking about their need for Jesus and filling this Mama with tears of thankfulness for His sacrifice for me. Thanks for sharing an idea that God is using for such good in our hearts in these days leading up to Easter.

Thank you so very much.
I was led here thru Catholic Icing. Your blog is wonderful!

We've been snowed in for days and so I now have to run out on Ash Wed !!!) to get the toothpicks....yikes.
Better late than never.

Have a lovely day and God bless you and your family.

I wanted to tell you that I mentioned your blog in my "Artful Friday" post today


Thank you


Hi, their crowns of thorns turned out so bright and colorful! I tried using the playdoh ones last year with my class and they dried up quickly. I wanted my students to remove a thorn when they'd offered up a prayer, performed an act of charity or good deed, or made a sacrifice. So playdoh didn't work out well for us. This year I bought the grapevine wreaths (not pretty and colorful) but this way they could easily remove the toothpicks. Have a blessed Lenten Season!
