It was over one year ago that I launched the Mandalas for Marinke project to honor the work and life of Marinke Slump from A Creative Being and to raise awareness about depression and mental health issues. As of yesterday, all of the individual submissions have been posted.
This contribution to Mandalas for Marinke (a recycled cotton mandala made using Wink’s 12-round standard mandala crochet pattern) comes from Janet.
This contribution to the Mandalas for Marinke remembrance project comes from Misha-Anne in Sydney, Australia
This contribution to Mandalas for Marinke comes from Temesia who writes, “I am an avid crafter. I always have about five projects going at the same time. They keep me sane.”
This contribution to Mandalas for Marinke comes from Carol who is, “someone who knows how hard it is to get through the dark days”.
This contribution to Mandalas for Marinke comes from Jamie who beautifully writes, “It is always darkest before the dawn. Do your best to hang on to see it … “
Jess shares, “I’ve struggled with depression for 19 years (at age 11, I had my first breakdown) and crochet is one of the ways I relax and feel productive.”
