Giveaway! Pocket Shrine from The Sacred Feminine

This week our giveaway comes to us from The Sacred Feminine. Fabulous artist and candle maker, Montserrat of The Sacred Feminine , has donated one of her lovely pocket shrines for this giveaway. I fell in love with these little shrines the first time I laid eyes on them, and I'm sure you will too! I had the chance to speak with Montserrat about her beautiful artwork, here's what she had to say:

1. How long have you been an artist of the sacred feminine?
I have always been an artist, but it was at the age of 33, when I had a brush with death that the Sacred Feminine was awakened within me.

2.How did you go about starting your business?

My business started in 1996 officially as Candles by Montserrat, my candle line.
I never thought of owning my own business, since I was painting just for the fun of it, but one day I decided to make some candles to give as gifts to friends, and they loved them so much that they encouraged me start a business out of it. So, I started selling them at a local New Age Store and somehow they spread all over. Since I use my own artwork for the labels, it made sense to also sell greeting cards and the like. Today, I make many things with my art work.

3.What is your favorite piece of artwork/product that you make?
I love painting with oils, of course. That seems to be the best way in which I can express my feelings with the rest of the world. My favorite piece is Mother Earth.

4. Could you explain the item your giving away?

I am giving away one of my pocket shrines. I love creating sacred space everywhere, and these little pocket shrines are perfect for doing just that, and also for focusing your intention on anything. They are easy to carry in your pocket, purse, car, office and home altar.

To enter the giveaway, you must first go to The Sacred Feminine website and check out her products, then come back here and mention a product or two that you like. The giveaway will go on for one week, and when its over I will choose the winner randomly with Thank you to everyone for participating in this giveaway! And of course a big thank you to Montserrat for donating this beautiful little pocket shrine!

Blessings )O(


  1. I love the Lilith picture and the Fairy boxes. The Portable Altars are lovely too.

  2. I adore the You Are Never Alone Portable Altar and her pocket shrines are SO innovative and unique!

  3. I loved the pocket shrines!!! In particular Sisterhood; Together, and Where the rainbows are born :-)
    Also absolutely loved the Portable Altars!!! In particular Mother Earth and The tree of wishes :-)
    They are exceptionally executed, and the portability is ingenious :-)

  4. I love so many things from her site, but I can personally recommend the Moon Goddess notebook since I bought one as a gift for a student, and I love her candles! I have two on my altar right now.

  5. I really like the Fairy Treasure Box, as I love surprizes! Plus, there are so many candles I want to try - Phoenix looks really good, so does the Manifesting candle. I've burned Montserrat's candles before, and for magic and intention they really work!

  6. I love the rose scented candles and have them next to my bed. I love my earth goddess journal as well...I would have one of everything there if i could!!!

  7. I've always had a penchant for boxes and little things to put in them, so my favorite items are the pocket shrines and the fairy boxes but I also la-la-la-love the fairy elemental wands - very unique! As for the paintings, my favorites are Mother Earth and Dancing Over the Cherry Tree and totem animals art. Lovely, inspired artwork, Ocean Goddess turned Desert Queen!

  8. I found this blog via randomly searching Twitter. Thank you for introducing me to this artist! Her totem animal prints are just amazing (it makes me SO HAPPY to see my [usually abandon] totem there: the polar bear!), and the "Tree of Wishes" portable alter is lovely.

  9. I love the goddness journal and Fairy Treasure Box! I know where I will be doing my gift shopping!

  10. All of the artwork is stunning. The "tree of Wishes" and "Heal the Earth" are my favorite portable Altars (what a GREAT idea!). The pocket shrines are amazingly adorable, my favorite is "Together" and "Invocation" though I love them all...but my absolute - all time - soul tingling favorite is the Faery Treasure boxes. Fun and inspiring, I can imagine the sense of wonder I would feel upon it's arrival...giddy anticipation to discover what magic it holds! I love that they are one of a kind.

  11. My faves are the Tree of Wishes portable altar and pocket shrine! But the store is like a treasure box full of jewels!

  12. They are all so beautiful! The New Moon Goddess & Tree of Wishes portable altars are fantastic. The Moon is my Sister & Sisterhood pocket shrines are gorgeous. Love the Lilith & Full Moon Goddess Art :)


  13. I adored the Fairy elemental wands and the portable altars. I also enjoyed the entire site. I have seen your work on Cafe Press. I love it :)<3

  14. Love pocket shrines but especially love artwork. "Breaking the Veil" is my favorite. Thanks!

  15. The Fairy Treasure Box made me smile...almost like being a child again with a special present. Blessings!
