    Your mandalas are gorgeous and oh so unique. Something about it makes me think…snowflake, yet flower…two in one maybe. I made one the other day that was like a flower and a butterfly, which you can see here if you’d like:
    Also, I started the Mandala Oasis Yahoo Group for mandala makers (drawn & digital)and have arranged for Judith Cornell to teach a series of 6 mandala teleclasses starting next week.

    Please spread the word!
    Cheers! – Cheryl
