  3. Brandy Barrilleaux says:

    Hi ordered the Jesus tree with the felt patterns but do not see an email for printing. Can you help please?

  4. Joanna Chabot says:

    this is such a cute idea- so I purchased the book and the printables yesterday- however I don’t see an email or anything that shows I purchased- I wonder what I did wrong? Not sure if my order went through? Thanks for your help!

  5. Rita Feldhake says:

    I just purchased this on Shopify because I wanted the printed booklet and felt pattern. Will I be sent a digital copy of the pattern? I would like to get started… I’m sorry all the options confused me. Any chance I can get a pattern fit the Matthew felt ornaments.

  6. Leann says:

    I love these. Thank you so much. It has helped my family ficus on the true meaning of Easter. I was wondering if you could do an ornament for Christ’s parables (like in Matthew 25). I didn’t see an ornament for them.

  7. Sarah Keating says:

    I ordered the Jesus tree and received the email, but now I can’t find it!! Is there any way that it could be resent?

  8. Erin says:

    Really looking forward to this! Would it work to use puffy point for some of the smaller details?

  9. Layna says:

    Hi, Nancy!

    Doh. I purchased the $7 Jesus Tree package a couple of weeks ago, and have lost track of the link! 🙁 I also don’t see an email containing it. Could I send you proof of purchase (PayPal receipt) in exchange for the link?

    Thank you so much!

  10. I just shared this on my instagram!


  11. Amy says:

    I want to order the printable set of both Matthew and John but when I click on it it only shows that I will get 41 ornaments… is that correct? I’m looking st the 10.00 set over the 7.00 but I am not seeing the difference between them …. can you clarify for me?
    Thank you!

  12. Sandra says:

    Hello, new here! I have zero sewing abilities and was wondering how the felt pattters would work using just a hot glue gun on felt. They’re beautiful and I’m looking forward to doing these with my littles this Lent.

  13. Kim says:

    I would like to purchase the felt patterns but when I click on the “I want this” button, it doesn’t actually do anything. Can you help guide me?

  14. Melissa Olmsted says:

    HI! How long does it take to get the digital files of the coloring sheets after I order them?
    This looks like it could be a fun activity for my Sunday School program.

  15. Gwen says:

    Thank you so much for putting this together! Thank you for making my life more simple by providing this resource! I know our family will enjoy this every day!

  16. Debra ward says:

    Just wondering, does your printable set come with the bible readings? Any reflections?
    Thanks so much for doing this!

    • Each coloring page is a Bible verse, taken from that day’s gospel. I did not include reflections because I feel like during Lent so many other wonderful sources (Word Among Us, Matthew Kelley, Fr. Robert Barron, Magnificat) have tremendous daily reflections on the readers.

  17. Melanie says:

    Ok…I am giving the felt set a go. 🙂 For branches, we moved over the summer, but at our old house we had a large forsythia bush out front. They bloom very early in the spring, and they need to be pruned before they bloom. So on Ash Wednesday we would prune it and bring some of the branches indoors and put them in vases of water. They always bloomed yellow flowers for us by Easter. Unfortunately our new place does not have forsythia…we will have to plant some this year!

  18. Lorena says:

    I purchased the pattern and plan on completing this set for 2018 celebration. It will surely take me that long to complete! I love the concept and your pattern is simple to follow with so much meaning and love behind every stitch.
    I have a lot of scrap felt that I plan to use but a special trip to purchase some DMC floss in gold will be on my list of to do for today. I want a little something special for the outline over baby Jesus 🙂
    A little new around here, love your blog.

    • I’m so glad you like the pattern! And you are brave to work with gold floss. I always get SO frustrated with it! I’d love to see a pictures of the set once you are done!!

  19. Gail Greenfield says:

    How do I purchase this for the $5 you list it for? When I click through from this blog post or on Etsy it says $7. Thanks.

  20. Jenn says:

    What size are the felt ornaments? I love them but don’t know if we have the room for a big tree and those on it. Thanks!

  21. Lisa says:

    Such an awesome way to make Lent a very special time for both kids and adults. The felt ornaments are beautiful and such a labor of love. Here’s another suggestion for a tree— we’ve used pussy willow branches for Lent. Since Lent means Spring — these first buds are not flowers but a sign of things to come.

  22. Pam says:

    Hi… I purchased the Jesus Tree felt pattern kit and I’d like to order the felt from your suggested Etsy vendor but no-where in the instructions could I find a detailed list of the felt colors. Could that be made available? It would be so helpful. Thank you so much!

    • going to try to get that together tomorrow. do you want the exact colors that I used? I honestly just made the ornaments out of my scrap bin!

      • Erin says:

        Were you able to pull this together? I don’t need the exact colors, but would generally like to have an idea of how much I need of greens, blues, etc. Thanks!

  23. Shauna says:

    Hi! These are great! I am wondering what your policy is for a group project? We have a Catholic moms’ group and would love to do this for an pre-lent event with our kids. Is it ok to buy one set and print many from one purchase? Thank you! God bless you.

  24. Christen says:

    These are awesome! I think a big wooden cross made from reclaimed wood would be awesome and you could use nails in it to hang the ornaments.

  25. Jessica says:

    How much sewing prowess is needed to complete the felt set? I can cross-stitch and sew a button on a shirt, but that’s unfortunately about the extent of my current sewing abilities. I would love to do the felt set for my family and Godchildren (maybe not for this year but for another time), but, I’m not sure I have the ability to do it…yet. If I need additional sewing abilities, I’ll go with the printable for this Lent and aim for the felt set for next Lent. Thank you! You have such talent. Thank you for sharing it with us!

    • I’m so glad you like the ornaments! The sewing skills are very basic–just a running stitch for the front of the ornament and a blanket stitch around it. there are tutorials for each in the pattern. It does, however take some time for sure. If you weren’t worried about having them ALL done at the beginning of Lent, but finished up after Lent started, you could totally use the felt ornaments this year. Hope that helps a little!!

  26. Carly says:

    If you had to guess how much do you think it would cost to buy the materials to make the felt version? I shared your post with teachers at our school and they loved the printable version! Thank you!

  27. Danielle Jimenez says:

    So beautiful! Thank you for taking the time to do this!

  28. Kim says:

    I love the Tree of Life…the Cross of course!! ❤. We have a felt version but the tree is not a Cross. Looks like I will be purchasing the printable version! Thank you so much!

    Those felt ornaments are GORGEOUS!
