preparing for Easter

Palm Sunday
we began a new tradition this year.  at Christmas we always buy a real tree.  when Christmas was over, we kept our tree.  a few weeks ago, my husband cut off all the branches, so we were left with the trunk.  he cut the top off the trunk to make it into a cross.  at Christmas, we have a tree in our house to remind us of Christ dying on the cross, even though we celebrate His birth.  at Easter, the tree becomes a cross as we prepare for Good Friday and what Christ did for us on the cross.
i'm a doodler...always have been, always will be.  i love sketching things out, things that inspire me.  sometimes i do something with them, other times i don't.
this sketch made it to my chalkboard.
they are ready and waiting to be dyed.
