Nona the Cellist Mouse

One of the first little mice I made - back when I was just making them as christmas presents for my family last year - was a little cellist mouse. I made her for my mother Nona, who is a cello teacher and concert cellist. The little instrument is very fiddly to sew together, so I have not made that many so far. I just made another for my store so I thought I would share her here as well.

Happee Fangsgivings!

I have always wanted to be in the USA for Thanksgiving, just to see what it is like. From the TV shows it looks a lot like christmas in Europe: A big turkey, all the trimmings, family and friends for company. A good excuse to eat 3 helpings of everything and then collapse on the sofa and fall asleep: It's my kind of holiday!

One of the blog sites I go to a lot is icanhascheezburger.com a super cute site for anyone who likes animals and captions with silly spellings, it's always good for a giggle! So when I saw this picture I just had to add it to my blog to wish all my readers in the USA a very Happee Fangsgivings!

I have decided to start using the material I would normally take to the recycling bins as shipping boxes for my little mice. Not only does this mean I am doing something for the environment it also reduces the large amount of cardboard and other packing stuffs I have in the house. Now I have tailor made boxes for my mice that are the right size and strengh whist still keeping the overall weight for shipping one mouse just under 100g. (Over 100g and I have to pay more to ship my parcels.)

I designed this stamp to go on my newly recycled packages, I ordered it from terbearco and it should be arriving in the next few weeks. If you want to do the same as me and use my stamp design you are more than welcome to! I encourage anyone to take it, reuse it and recycle. Every little bit helps us change for the better.

Mouse in a cat suit

Here is the final mouse from my custom order, and I saved the best till last (IMO). I love this little guy so much it was so hard to pack him up and send him away! If you like him too, please tell me! I am thinking of making him a regular in my store...

Custom Hannibal Mice

I have a customer who is crazy about the Hannibal Lector movies! She originally bought a Hannibal Mouse like the first photo and then later she asked me to make lots of other mice for her! I wanted to show them to you too. I am so pleased with how they came out.

French Basque Dancer Mice

Sorry I have been away for so long. I got asked to make 40 custom mice for one customer and the order has been keeping me very busy. Now that they are complete I thought I would share with you some photos of all the new mice I made. Here are the first couple: French Basque Dancer Mice. I had such fun with the female one, those little plats and her dress came out so well. I hope you will enjoy them :)
