Happy holidays, everyone! We hope this season finds you celebrating with loved ones and enjoying a hot chocolate or five. It’s a busy time of year, and sometimes our gift-giving lists are full of really hard-to-shop-for folks!

Let us help: Stop by the Blue Buddha Boutique Artisan Market, a diverse collection of locally handmade items crafted by some of the most talented artisans in the Midwest.

Let us begin the 12 Day of Craftmas, a blog series that will highlight just a few of the artisans who make every item in the market by hand.

And now that we’ve teased you with the promise of fantastic gifts for the next 12 days, we give you Day 1 — something that is not for sale. We know, we know — but it’s so impressive, it deserves the spotlight: Rebeca Mojica’s Chainmaille Mandala.

Stop by and see the Mandala and our entire Artisan Market in person — we’re located in the Edgewater neighborhood of Chicago at 1127 W. Granville Avenue.

And stay tuned for the next 11 Days of Craftmas …
