In honor of Easter I wanted a repurposed craft that took something dark, dusty and purposeless and pumped it full of life. I found an old picture frame that I had been meaning to fill for quite some time, but had remained empty– only a wrinkled reflection stared back at me. The center of the frame represents the purposeless that I once felt.
I chose yellow and pink to represent light shining and the sun rising on Easter morning. Flowers also remind me of a beautiful story as they bloom and break open from their slumber into the beautiful spring time. As a Christian, I celebrate Easter as the raising from the dead of Jesus Christ after he had three days before died on the cross to take the penalty for the sins of humanity.
I decided to turn my colorful frame into a little message board for daily, encouraging messages. A combination of everyday necessities and beautiful reminders. I borrowed my housemate’s name for the sake of alliteration (past English major nerding out).
