an easter gift


hard to believe it's easter already. the time goes by so quickly it seems. i always spend easter with my family at my mom and dad's house. they make ham, and while that is not high on my list for the delicious factor, i really do enjoy spending some time with everyone. i hope you all remember to love someone a little extra, eat lots of chocolate and remember what the true meaning of easter is and give thanks for being alive to share in this wonderful journey we having. i want to share in the spirit of the holiday so i'm going to do another give away. if you'd like to have a chance to win this printed copy of my original postcard art please leave me a note about what you love about the easter holiday. i will pick a name next week. have a wonderful easter!

  1. What do I love about the Easter holiday? chocolate of course, but also family time, lighter nights and the feel of spring in the air.

  5. For me Easter means the onset of much cooler weather here in the Southern hemisphere....normally. But it's still hot and our chocolates are melting and the BBQ planned for Sunday will be ok because it's still warm enough to sit outside with all the family and soak up the last rays of summer.

  6. You are one that I will be thinking of this weekend in remembering the things that are important. Along with a little chocolate. You have meant a lot to me lately. like chocolate! No really, you're pretty special to me.

    We are going to the beach and having a picnic and looking for sea glass as a family. Since moving, we haven't found a new church home so we are going to rejoice at the beach. No ham for me, we are having turkey sandwiches and hard boiled eggs that my 15 and 17 year old still want to color tomorrow.

    Enjoy your weekend as much as I enjoy your beautiful art - that's a lot of enjoying!

  7. Great piece of artwork! For my entry, I will tell you that I love the solemness of our Good Friday service, and two days later followed by the glorious pagentry of an Easter procession at church, proclaiming the most amazing news given to man!

  8. For me growing up, Easter meant new clothes. We are a large family, I am the oldest of 7. So there wasn't often money for new clothes. But being devout Catholics, my parents felt that it was important to celebrate Easter and the feeling of being reborn. So we all got a new piece of clothing. Never a whole outfit of course. But something that was brand new. Not a hand me down, not a home-made, but really truly from a store brand new. So while it may make me sound shallow, that's what easter means to me.
    I would be over the moon if I won.
