This page soul works by karima is all about dream catchers.she makes memorising dreamcatcher and boho stuff.Basically dream catchers were first noted in 1929 in the native American tribe of objibway.It was used to hung on baby’s cradle to protect them from bad dreams .The beads woven into a dreamcatcher symbolise the spider, the web weaver itself, and they act as charms to prevent good dreams being trapped in the web – these are the dreams you want to get through to you.

When I first saw this page I was stunned to see such intricate detailed Dreamcatchers.I have seen lot of dream catchers but hers is different.Nowdays Dreamcatchers are used for home ,garden ,office space decor.Dreamcatchers have cultural history about how the spider woman brought the sun back to the people of the world. Once, the objiway people were gathered together as one nation.
