Tiptoes story eggs

I have been inspired on this venture by 2 greats :  Hallie and Karen.   Thanks ladies! 

You know we love the Tiptoes stories!   We have read the stories at home and even managed to get our teacher hooked on these fabulous tales.   Thanks to some quick crafting, she is able to tell the stories with the help of  puppets.   Ivie’s basket on Sunday morning will have 3 new Tiptoes books – Eggs for the Hunting, Magic Knot & Big Stamp.   She will be thrilled!  Isn’t this book cover beautiful?

Story eggs have been on my to-do list since I saw Karen‘s beautiful ones for Tiptoes.  Then after being the lucky recipient of one of Hallie‘s eggs in a swap, I was determined to try my hand with my wood burner.  Well it does work on my hand!  I found that out on the first try – ouch!  

Well after much trepidation, I think these turned out ok for a first try.  They will join the Tiptoes books in Ivie’s basket. 

I burned the bunny (from Eggs for the Hunting) first.  I was so nervous about ruining one of my wooden eggs that I used one from last year’s wet felting that had spent some quality time in Lindsey’s purse, which is apparently where she keeps grape juice.  I love how it turned out & just wish you could see the cute tail! 

Next is Tiptoes with flowers with the sun above.

and then of course, I had to do her acorn house. 

Reg Down’s newest book  (just released today) will definitely be on our bookshelf soon.  I look forward to making a story egg of Sir Gillygad!
