"A favorite of our kids and now grandkids!! Can't read it enough for them." - Illinois
"Carole Lexa Schaefer and Pierr Morgan celebrate the wondrous creativity of children with this joyful book." ~ Viking Children's Books, New York
Jacket flap copy reads:
"It all starts with one child.
One idea, shared with friends.
One moment, they're children.
The next, they're prancing ponies.
Soon, they're swooping birds.
Lunchtime! and they're slurping tigers. (Photo 5)
Nighttime . . . and they're dreaming of what to be next."

Fingers are reinforced inside with bamboo for a sturdy display of earrings and rings. Lightweight pins & brooches are best on the palm.

2. Why I Need Your Information and How I Use It:
I rely on a number of legal bases to collect, use, and share your information, including:

Yes. Happy to!
Additional fees may apply.
Hand dust HAND or CACTUS-Stand with a clean damp cloth or sponge.
FREE! Card included. Write greeting on checkout order form, 'note to seller.'
I do not Wholesale, Consign, or offer Layaway for my products. Each item is made individually by hand. Essentially one-of-a-kind (OOAK). They are labor intensive with no mass-production process involved.
Thanks very much for your interest.
I hand-make them myself. They are fabric soft sculptures, made one at a time, machine stitching fabrics together and filling fingers and palm with polyester fiberfil. The wrist is solid with a "weight tub" of pennies inside a sealed plastic container - to support the hand (or cactus), so it stands sturdy on a flat, level, stationary surface, like a desk, dresser, mantel, shelf, counter top or windowsill.
Yes! I'm happy to use any cotton quilting-weight fabric you send. You pay for shipping it to me, I cut what I need to make the item(s), and return all remaining fabric to you along with your completed order.
