Preparing for Great Lent: Our Lenten Calendar...


Last year, I finally implemented a pretty Lenten calendar that I spotted on Rhythm of the Home (which now appears to be offline).  I remembered it in the nick of time last year and made it on Sunday afternoon just before Forgiveness Vespers.  I basically copied Bley Hack's Lenten Path using watercolor paper, Prang watercolors, and watercolor pencils.  While the calendar was drying, I took a little butterfly from the craft store and glued a round magnet to the back.  When everything was dry, I place it on the first stone on the Lenten path and put another magnet under the paper.  Now the butterfly can easily move from stone to stone.  Here's a video I took to show you how it works:
