Easter chocolate box and freebies!!

Hi all hope you are all great!!! Well Easter is almost finished but I have some projects to share with all of you that I've made for my friends.  Unfortunatelly with moving and other jobs didn't have the time to blog them so you will see some easter projects the following days.
Anyway todays project is an altered card box from eggs.  I used a paper shelter image, flowers~ skeleton leaves, ribbon, sentiments I made, glitter, and my Martha Stuart punch!  I really love this cute box!!  Inside it holds 6 chocolate eggs ( like Kinder eggs).

I would love to enter my project in the following challenges:

5. Tuesday Throwdown~ Recycling
6. Recycle, Re-Purpose &Re-Invent challenge blog 

We have to answer a Question at Recycle, Re - Prpose & Re-Invent challenge Blog
 What is the weirdest item you are hoarding and what will you do with it?????
Strange thing I have hoarded are some really old pantiles to paint them...

I know that the Easter sentiment you can't use it right away but you can keep it for next year.  The chocolate sentiment can be used anytime!!!

 Freebie No more available

Hope you enjoyed my creation

Big Saturday and Easter Sunday!!

so...we are in the 2 last days of the big Easter celebrations..
let me share with you some customs we have for Easter.  Easter for Greeks is the biggest celebration of all.  We celebrate Easter more than every other Orthodox countries and societies on the world!!  Kids accept gifts and their Easter candles ~ the ones that carry the Holly flame in our houses~ from their Godparents.  So every Godparent brings an Easter Candle, clothes or shoes, chocolate eggs and an easter bun to his/hers godchild.  Godparents supposed to bring these goods to their godchildren until the age of 18.  My Godmother still brings me my Easter Candle, my Easter bun and she always brings me something for my house (towels, sheets etc ~ I'm quite big to bring me fluffy and cute dresses heh) but this year she is quite sick ~ she is 82 years old!!! so she couldn't come but she is always in my prayers!!   So I made my own candles for me and hubby!!  I really like them and they had big success!!woohooo.
Anyway let's continue with the customs.   Big Thursday~  we dye the eggs red .  that means that Christ's blood painted the eggs.  Big Friday ~ we have the Litany of Epitaphs.  Big Sunday ~  at 00.00 midnight we celebrate Ressurection of Christ.  We go at Church, light our candles with the Holly Flame and when we come back at 3.00 am we make a chross outside our doorstep and we eat the traditional magiritsa ~ a soup based in vegatables and insides of lamb...I don't like it.  Old people did this cause the wanted to prepare their stomachs for the big feast after 40 days of fasting.  We bump our red eggs to wish for the Easter and then the guys preparing the lamb and the kokoretsi for Sunday.
So Easter Sunday....ok...hmmm let me try to describe it with few, food and more food!!! people go wild!!! 20 kilos of lamb on the spit!!! yeah... 20 kilos for max 10 people!!!!amazing huh??? traditional dances, food, red eggs, wine, tzatziki,kokoretsi, and more food  till the end of day...yeap crazy I know.  well hubby and I don't do any of the above...we try to be reasonable!! heh but his parents do all the above!!! so this year we went to celebrate Easter with them and all this happened.   My FIL this year didn't tried to stuff me with all this food!! but of course he gave me so much food to take back to our home that I'm sure will last for 2 weeks lol!!!
oh also i want you all meet John the lamb.  I think this lamb is very lucky as he didn't have the destiny of other poor lambs...anyway he is so cute and he drinks a huge bottle of milk in les than 2 min!!! amazing huh???

ok that's it for tonight...I need a soda even if I didn't ate so much...just in memory of all this food...and consider that Greeks are in a huge crisis right now!!! are they?????? I know hubby and I are but what about all the other people spending more than 500 euros for just the Easter Sunday meal???people traveling around Geece when fuels costs 2 euros per litre!!!???
we spent 100 euros for food, fuels and some chocolates for friends and family.  but not for the Easter day.  for the Big week and the week before...  I wonder how people managed with all this Easter frenzy...
anyway sorry for bothering you with my thoughts and the strange ways of Greeks...hope you found something interesting here....

also I'll try to cardmake more the following days

till then

Big Thursday and Big Friday...

hello my fellow bloggers, hope each and everyone is great!!!
Happy Easter to all Orthodox!!
Today I have some really unequal posts for all of's a Greek traditional Big Week ~ the Week before Easter and how we spend it.  Actually it's not the whole week.  Just a summary to the very big Events.  The entire week we spent 2-4 hours every day  in Church, we are fasting (some people fast for 40 days), and we are preparing for the Resurrection of Christ and our Easter.  Big Thursday is a very important day as after Church were we have heard from priests the 12 Gospels, people stay to grace with flowers the Epitaph ~ it's the place we put the wooden body of Christ after the removal of Christ from the cross on Big Friday~  this take us all night as we have to tack lots of flowers.  This year we decorated the Epitaph with white and yellow flowers as you can see.   In the town were we live we have 3 main Churches, so each Church decorates its own Epitaph.  So at 21.00 hours on Big Friday all the Epitaphs meet in the big square to begin the Litany.  All people holds candles and escort the Epitaphs around the town.  then the Epitaphs return back to their churches.

you can see some pics to take a taste, hope you gona like them.  Sorry for the blurry pics but all things happened too fast!!!
