Mandalas for the #Mandalasformarinke Project
Depression has reared it’s ugly head and claimed a beautiful member of the online crochet community. Marinke (Wink), the woman behind A Creative Being. I have come across her colorful Blog many times and it has given me so much inspiration, always leaving me with an urge to create. Sadly we have recently lost a family member on my husbands side to suicide and watching him and his father grieve makes me feel deeply for Winks family. This last resort leaves the survivors with a heart filled with “what if’s” and this nagging question might be the hardest to overcome.
Winks work will continue to bring joy and inspire and I hope the love from all around the world for her will help her family and friends. Please look at Katheryn’s wonderful tribute over at Crochetconcupiscene and make one of her vibrant crochet Mandalas in honor of this truly Creative Being. I hope together we can raise awareness and fight the beast that claims too many sensitive souls every year! Kathryn has come up with a truly inspired idea and a way for Winks colorful mandalas to bring some light into a dark place.
If you don’t want to send in your mandala the Design Wars team has put together their own tribute #MandalasforWink.
