IMT & Cactus Monday: Handmade Gift


I put googly eyes on my cactus's because. . . I think they are dangerous.  You never know where you stand with them unless you can look em' in the eyes, right?

Yes, this little felt cacti is inspired by the Christopher Walken SNL skit "Googly Eyes Gardner".  He is going to make a nice desk ornament for someone special.  He doesn't bite though, he's a little softie.

And here's a little tip for you that I share with experience.  Never talk with your hands while at someone's house who has a cactus in reach.  Ouch!
