    So cute and well made. I was worried they would be heavy and bend my pages but they don’t! Thank you for the fast shipping and adorable product!!

    I am in love my Tiny Fairy Village!
    The village is magical & will capture your imagination. It contains a teeny weeny house that is topped with a bright green pointed roof and is surrounded by bright yellow & orange flowers. The detail on the houses, flowers, and fairy is exquisite. Initially there was no fairy in the design However, after I mentioned to the shop owner, Joyce, that I have a love for garden fairies - She offered to add a garden fairy to my Tiny Fairy Village!! The fairy she created is beautiful with long flowing ginger hair & she is wearing a bright yellow dress with green ribbons flowing at her waist.
    Joyce went over and beyond to please her customer, me, by adding my own unique garden fairy.
    I would highly recommend HandsOnColorBy Joyce - and I will certainly be repeat and loyal customer.

About

Why the name HandOnColorByJoyce? In Thanksgiving!!!

Everything using my hands continues to be tiny miracles of therapy to restore my fine motor skills. As I continue working through my recovery of rebuilding nerve tissue, muscle structure, and my life I share with you… Our universal togetherness in celebrating the greatness of color and beauty through living each moment!

Using my hands to create is my gift from the Lord. One that I have not always accepted nor been grateful for… until July 1996, the date I became intimately familiar with Guillain-Barre’ Syndrome (GBS). At 6:00 am I was a walking moving person without any health problems. By 3:00 pm I was totally paralyzed, without pain, and forty hours later on life support! For the next twenty-three days I escaped to the most wonderful peaceful place I have ever been!

When I returned to myself, there was PAIN—no movement; a respirator—no speech; a feeding tube; plus a catheter; and according to the hospital staff very little hope for recovery.
After six months in the hospital, I came home less than an adult infant as I was only able to slightly move my head from side-to-side.

On April 17, 1997 I was able to drag a soft felt tipped pen across paper. I would hate to say it was writing… Later the same year I cried as a package of soft leaded drawing pencils were opened for me and the remembered smell of the wood and lead was overwhelming! I worked for months to clumsily grasp the pencil in my thin non muscled “monkey hand.” Finally in a three day period I could possibly complete a simple line drawing.

In mid 1998 came watercolors and today I love colored pencils! In 2011 a friend encouraged me to string a few beads, the beginning of jewelry making. During the winter of 2014, there were multiple snow days. Wanting to create something different, I played with my wire and read an article about rice paper. And Rice Paper and Natural Fiber Paper earring designs began!

Today working with polymer clay is the best therapy I have found for my hands. One can squeeze a ball a hundred times, but making something with your hands is a blessing. As I continue to work at "finding" my fine motor skills, clay is at least FUN!!!

Today my left hand is still a "monkey hand" and I can not push the space bar with either thumb. BUT, I have used them to create all the items in the shop... slowly... making each item a small victory for me!!!

Faith, Hope, Love and my gift from God.
Know in the Lord we have the Greatest Provider,
the Greatest Lover, and the Greatest Healer...
understanding death can be the ultimate healing.
