Featuring: Indigoluna

With just a quick glance through Indigoluna, my featured shop today, you'll see that there is a wide selection of many different things: knitted items, jewelry, quilts, mixed-media and altered art, and much, much more!

There are still a few ornaments in store, one of which is this adorable fabric snowman ornament. His cheerful smile and warm heart are sure to bring joy to your home this holiday season.

The artist behind Indigoluna, Rachel, has always been crafty, and her passion is fabric. And I think it's pretty obvious when you take a look at the stunning quilts she has in store. This hot off the grill art quilt is my favourite ~ the vibrant colours would bring a bright splash to any dark corner or bare wall. The fabric used is hand-dyed ~ this fabric has its own section in store, so check it out if you'd like to get your hands on some.

Rachel is quite multi-talented, and not only in her crafts. She is also a sign language interpreter, an energy worker, a minister, a blogger, a wife, and a mother to two little girls. I wonder where she ever finds the time to dabble in so many different crafts??

Here are a few more of my favourites from her shop. This bloom mixed-media art postcard is just beautiful! I love the aqua colour, and the unique flower bud. Would you just be thrilled to receive this in the mail??

If you look in Indigoluna, you will see a section of mandalas. Here's one of my favourites ~ East. I'm not sure how to describe these, so I'm going to let Rachel do so. I just think they're lovely ~ like coloured snowflakes!

This is an original pen and ink drawing colored with watercolor pencils. My mandalas are organically drawn entirely by hand with no computers or stencils used.

When I draw mandalas, I enter a meditative state. The lines and colors just seem to flow out of me.
The word mandala comes from the sanskrit and means sacred circle. The circle symbolizes the womb of creation. It is an artistic representation of the cosmos, a focus for meditation.

Infused with healing Reiki energy.
Embellished with sparkly holographic stickers.
Finished with Diamond Glaze for shine and depth.
Matted on museum quality black matboard. 8 inches X 8 inches square.
Ready to be framed.

There's a TON more to see ~ you just have to stop by Indigoluna!! And don't forget to stop by her blog, where she's featuring other great artists taking the 90 day challenge.
