Gorgeous designs! Well done, Nancy!
Nancy’s work is AMAZING! I am so impressed at the quality of her work and the intricate details. Her recent series of the chakras is STUNNING! The colors are pure and enticing, the selection of fabrics is well-considered and precise. Her designs are completely unique and each is extremely well thought out, and embellishments are just perfect. Not too much frou-frou, everything is in balance and so clear and peaceful. Just looking at them makes me feel like I’ve just had a nice meditation sess…
Nancy, Seeing your beautiful mandalas inspires me each time. Congratulations on making them available to many, many more folks. The cards are wonderful, too, I am eager to share them.
My mandala from Nancy assisted me in my healing process while recovering from cancer. It’s a daily reminder that strength and beauty is found all around us, as well as within us.
Your work is beautiful!
THIS IS GREAT!!!!! Thank you for making these available to purchase-i’m sending them as cards as I know they hold a high vibration!!!
VERY COOL designs — the “green tara” on Sue’s piano is quite the conversation piece for her clients, and always an eyecatcher when you walk in the room….not to mention the love and healing energy that went into the creation. I love the notecards!
These are truly beautiful cards, dread parting with them, but I know they will be cherished by those who receive them…
Your cards brighten my every work day.
Just got the card–wow! The photos on line don’t do it justice. Beautiful! Thanks.
