Friday Thoughts - Thinking about Easter

We are about to enter the week leading up to Easter. For me, it feels as if time has ticked around very quickly, however the forty days of Lent (not including Sundays) is almost finished for another year.

As the supermarket shelves are bursting with chocolate goodies in preparation for Easter, it is also important to contemplate why this celebration occurs.

My husband wears a cross like this nearly everyday and attracts the occasional comment. The cross that he wears, he made in his teenage years. The cross is a poignant symbol of Easter, reminding of the brutal death of Christ. The horse shoe nails that make up the body of this cross pendant are a stark reminder of the nails that were used.

Other symbols of Easter, focusing on the 'new life' aspect of Easter include eggs, butterflies, chicks, flowers, rabbits (and other Spring items). There are lots of beautiful handmade items around at the moment that incorporate these symbols to either give as gifts or to decorate homes/Easter feasts. Madeit's Easter gift guide has a selection of these items. Click here if you wish to view this guide.Do you make any handmade items to celebrate Easter?

Have a lovely weekend!
