My turtle mandala
I love to see and share the mandalas created during my mandala workshop. I am always amazed at what is created. Here are the rest of the mandalas that were created at the April 20th workshop.

This is the last week for this session of 100 Days for Mandalas, which started January 14th. Where did those 100 days go?
I have been drawn to using regular manila folders for creating art journaling mandalas. The are like mini-books.
I am filled with joy that my mandalas and the story of how they became part of my life are featured in a six page article in the 2013 spring issue of Art Journaling magazine. Here are the pages. Let them be an inspiration.
There is an artist in Poland named Nespoon, who creates what she calls “jewelry for public spaces.” She works with the mandala shape of doilies, those circular lace shapes that maybe your grandma or great grandmother made.
The spiral of life brings us back to a familiar place, which lets us see the old with new eyes and new inspirations. These are inspirations for new mandalas.
This week is dedicated to the opening of hearts by all people, to send love and healing to all creatures and parts of our earth and beyond.
Today I am inspired by mandalas that show the power and beauty of hands, both the hands of humans and the hands of the Creator.
Welcome to Day One of the 2nd session of 100 Days for Mandalas. This is a creativity retreat that will hopefully inspire the making of mandalas. It is a retreat in the quiet time, when the warmth of inner creativity burns as a fire in the center of the soul. There are many ways and reasons to make mandalas. Find your way and your reason, then join in.
This is an invitation to join in a new year of creativity and inspiration with the second session of 100 Days for Mandalas. Please come join a creative circle of a quiet round the fire winter retreat (for those of us in northern part of the world) and a lazy daisy summer camp (those those in the southern part) to feel the embrace of the sacred circle of a mandala
My favorite mandala book for 2012 has not only some of the most beautiful simple mandalas I have ever seen, but the true story about how they are created and mysteriously discovered by a French poet in India over twenty-five years ago reads like a combination Indiana Jones and Spiritual Quest adventure story.
This poem was shared by two dear friends. It was written by E Klingner, a friend of those who gave me this poem.
To me it says so much. The words ” until routine becomes ceremony” and “disregard detours – a trip around the world when you prefer instead [...]
Recently I attended the Turner Center for the Arts fund raiser and auction. The Turner Center for the Arts is a very special place that gives people with disabilities a chance to express and find themselves through art.

Today on the eve of election day, I have a mandala and story to share. The story is about the election of the Greek goddess Athena as the protector and ruler of Athens. According to some there was a contest between Athena and Poseidon to rule Athens. Each brought a gift to the city. Poseidon’s [...]
When I started looking, I found lots of mandalas around my house. Many of them were ones I created decades ago, ceramic bowls and platters I did before my children were born. I didn’t call them mandalas at the time. When I create mandalas now I see the same images, like spirals, coming up when [...]
