To Inspire, Transform & Heal

Linda Wiggen Kraft
Creativity for the Soul


Welcome to my blog. My work and life are my play and passion. It is a crazy quilt of creativity for the soul that is meant to inspire, transform and heal through gardens, art and work with the sacred. I work and play in gardens, garden design, garden writing, mandala art, art journaling, photography, classes and workshops, pottery, meditation, meditation teaching, sustainability and sacred space. I share my life with my husband, sons, daughters-in-laws, grandchildren, friends, clients and students.
