I was so excited when I saw this Easter scene!! I contacted Laura immediately. To be honest I thought it was kind of expensive, but I decided I really wanted it for my home, for my grandchildren, and I would use it every year. I finally decided, I will buy it for my birthday. I contacted Laura again and drove to her home and purchased the set. Laura was so gracious to let me come to her home and pick it up. I was having a family party and wanted my grandchildren to be able to see and play with it. I was so excited about it, I took it to work and shared with my co-workers. For the last two weeks, my grandchildren that I see almost daily, play with the set, carry around Jesus, and move the pieces around. The Jesus statue even has the nail prints. The material, the set is made of, is child friendly/unbreakable and yet so beautiful. I love my set!! I am so glad I bought it. Thank you Laura!
Love, love, love this idea! I had been in search of something like this, but the only ones I could find similar to this one had Jesus on top of the tomb with His arms stretched toward heaven. I prefer this Jesus with His arms outstretched to us, inviting us to come to Him.
What a delightful couple! I love them already! They have awakened us at a very important time in the history of this Earth. Now artists all over will be designing an Easter tradition for market with more meaning, I hope. Hopefully this will help draw a line between celebrating Spring and the real meaning of Easter. As a Stake Preparedness leader, I have been aware of the many, many people who cannot afford such a luxury. For those, I sent out a handout full of other visual effects they can create themselves to bring this Spirit of Easter, into their homes. For example, I found tiny candle holders and frames at Salvation Army and used E6000 glue from Lowes to make pedestal pictures. Each frame holds a printed picture of a scene that describes that incredible morning.
I had a dream about this very thing recently. I designed a whole Easter Creche in my mind--including the Garden of Gethsemane and the cross on Golgotha, as well as the tomb much like they have made it. I wished that I knew some artist who could make this idea real. So glad to have found one!
Great Easter idea. And also rather than bunnies, how about lambs. In Primary we now have the children glue white cotton balls onto lamb cut-outss to start an Easter tradition of the sacrificial Lamb.
i have often thought about this very thing so was very excited to read your article. I LOVE the idea of an Easter crèche. I will most definitely have to get one. Thank you!
