Tuck's Wee Mousie. Don't look, Erin.


Spoiling just a part of my great-nephew's third birthday gift. I had to cancel my trip to go to his party this weekend, so I'm taking his gifts along with me at Thanksgiving. Just couldn't sit on this part though. I love making Wee Mouses for small people. And the tins look so cute on top of wrapped gifts:


This mouse also has a bedtime story to read. It's about a three year old named Tucker who just maybe sometimes does not like to go to sleep. Written by me. Illustrated by me. Self published.



 "I very definitewy NOT tired," said a sleepy little Tucker.

 "No I not. Not even one (YAAAAWN) tiny tiny meeny miney bit."

 "Mmmph. Zifferlin. Shez iz im. Sfnn."



Tiny things make me happy. Happy birthday, Tuck Tuck! I love you!

  15. Y'all are so nice. Thanks!

    Rae, why yes, it IS impossible for me to be a great aunt. Had a little mishap with a time-turner and a hole in the space-time continuum, but it's all worked out now.

  17. Seriously...you need to give me the link to where I can buy the book to download and print my own to go with the 'mouse in a tin' pattern.

    Great pattern and instructions - thanks.

    Happy thoughts,
    Petrina
