... on my mind since 2012 and coming into popularity once again: little booklets, handmade and hand-stitchedone at a time, as they were back in the 1800s. Papers may vary, stitch binding may varyfrom cord to ribbon to heavy thread and content may vary, from prose to poetry to tales of imagination. The cover is cardstock, the pages 24lb premium paper. I am the sole creator, using all of my acquired lifetime skills in art, writing, crafting, sewing and computer. An Authenticity Statement appears in each book, including the date of completion, sequence number and signature. An envelope for mailing is included (should you wish to pass it along as a gift). Family-friendly stories for children of all ages. Helen Ingeborg

FREDERICKA THE FROG
OLE & ME and the Christmas Tree
Wilma Witchey and the Best Moon Flight Ever!|
A family-friendly Halloween tale by Helen Ingeborg
Very long ago, in a tiny town, lived a little red-haired lady with a secret: she was a witch. A good witch! She had a little black cat named Midnight, and a daughter named Winnie. Every Halloween night she would don her robes and hat and fly across the moon to cheer the children of her small town.
This year, on the day before Halloween, Wilma's broom remains in the repair shop due to not reaching the expected height on last year's flight. She has quite a time getting answers from Raven at the shop, and turns to her daughter for help.
Winnie has no better luck with the shop. She ventures out to buy her mother a brand new broom, which has a problem of its own. But quick-thinking Winnie solves it, using old and new technology. VIDEO (Kindle version) |
