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 random.org. 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!
