Burning Baby Animals, Part II

I got the coolest Valentine's Day gift ever. Ever. EVER.

Y'all are familiar with some of the baby animals I've been burning? I've been using a cheap ten dollar burning tool to burn baby animals. As much fun as that is, it's not quite satisfactory. Doesn't do the job as well as I want. So my sweet Hunny bought me a new burning tool this weekend. A fancy one. Not top of the line, mind you, but so much nicer than the other. With heat regulation, so I don't have to fry the little buggers to a crisp.

I'll show you photos, but first I have to show you how my Hunny upstaged me on his first attempt, before I even got to use my new toy. He went all soft on me and burned a flower. A pretty flower.



Beautiful.

Look what I've done with my new burner since it came home this weekend.



I like the baby elephant. It has personality. I like the quote. But I prefer this one better, as burnt baby animals go.



I don't have a quote for it, though. Anyone? Ideas?

Well, I'm off to burn another critter. Y'all have a good one.

Until I write again ...

Yes, yes. The Seuss quote is wrong. And yes, I realize that I misspelled percent.

"Y'all are familiar with some of the baby animals I've been burning". Oh Flea - only you would type this sentence LOL!

Love the quote and I didn't even notice the words were spelled wrong!

Trisha said...

Flea - I must agree. The sentence about burning baby animals might get you some nasty comments from PETA! The woodburning is great though!

Karen said...

Oh that Hunny is definitely a keeper. Flea is there anything you can't do????

Those are amazing - how do you DO that? Do you have templates or stencils to follow, or do you do it freehand?

I looked at the tall giraffe; Watched a hippo take a bath; And the monkeys made me laugh.

Leenie said...

What a Hunny! Not only does he notice his Sweetone's hobbies but he buys the upgrade. And THEN gives her flowers as well. A keeper for sure. Still like the giraffe the best. But Horton wouldn't care about the typo.

Those are great! My older sister had a burning tool when we were kids. The only thing I remember her creating was a burn on her hand.
