2000th Sale Giveaway


Today we reached our 2000th Sale on Etsy! *happy happy dance* and we want to celebrate just with our fans on this special occasion. So even though we are already running our "Win a Mouse every Month" giveaway, we're going to give away another mouse, just for our fans. 

This giveaway is special because we won't advertise it outside of our fan circle (facebook fans, twitter followers and newsletter subscribers). Normally we advertise on other blogs and websites in order to encourage new people to look at our shop, but this giveaway is just for you. We won't ask you to tell your facebook friends about it or tweet a link to your twitter followers; It's not a marketing exercise, it's a genuine thank you to all of you who have supported and encouraged us, and to those who have been our friends over the last 4 and a half years on Etsy. 

We would like to invite you to our virtual party to celebrate 2000 Etsy sales! To enter this giveaway just tell us what you bring with you to the party and a fun way you will celebrate with us. The best answer will win an ornament of their choice from our store, plus a few extra surprise items in your parcel.

Thank you again to everyone! We hope you enjoy the party.

Anna, Naomi and all the Mice

Competition Closed.

    1. Oooh Cheese! The mice rush in and start nibbling right away. Sir Eeksalot the Knight mouse climbs right onto the top of the cheese mountain, he tries to claim it with a flag made from a toothpick and a piece of paper napkin.

    1. Horah! Those look like they are going to be fun. We'll put them out of the way of little curious mouse fingers until it gets darker. The mice are very excited about getting to stay up late tonight to watch them.

    Cookies in an attempt to get all the mice to come home with me. If you give a mouse a cookie.....

    1. The plate of cookies is met with high pitched squeaks from all the mice! Some of them drop the cheese brought by Polina and race over to grab a nibble. Your cookies are so delicious that several mice promise to come home in your pockets so they can eat more every day. (oooh they are going to be fat little mice!)

    1. A cheesecake with 2000 candles!? The mice can't believe their luck! They are tucking napkins into their shirts and licking their lips at the sight of it!

    Replies
    1. The mice happily dance around to your mix tape, bouncing and springing off the furniture and squeaking with delight. Mice love music. They thank you for your toilet fixing skills too, after this party is over we might need them!

    1. What a lovely idea ioana! The mice are entranced by the nightingales and sit with their little mouths open as they sing. Then Harper the Carol singer mouse tries to join in and before you know it all the mice are squeaking away. I'm afraid they aren't very in tune, but they do look like they are having a lot of fun!

  8. What a lovely idea! I would bring some pancakes with goat cheese and a load of sparkling champagne, carried by my friend, Mr Hedgehog, in his wheelbarrow :) Mr Hedgehog is quite lonely this time of year, because Mr Bear left for a week to join in a raspberry-picking competition.

    1. Yummy pancakes, thank you Raluca :D The mice are very happy to see Mr Hedgehog and quickly invite him to join in their mousy games. He won't be lonely any more with all his new friends.

  10. So many lovely things already at the party! I would bring extra tiny confetti for tiny mousey hands to throw, and itty bitty party hats, too.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Hehehe!! The mice adore the party hats and quickly put them on. One of them tries to be funny and puts it on his face instead, he starts walking around making duck noises! The confetti is being thrown around everywhere and the mice are squeaking happily.

  11. What a great and cheerful party it is so far. I am bringing a bottle of nice red vine and my favourite goat cheese with cranberries. And now dancing around with all little mice.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. The mice quickly dive into the goat cheese and cranberries! Some of the more adventurous ones are very interested in the wine, but Naomi and I carefully hide it away to enjoy ourselves, after all the mice are far too young for wine! haha. We think it is delicious though! Thank you so much.

      Delete
  12. CHEESE! Lots of cheese for all of the sweet little mice that will be joining the party!
    I would fill a picnic basket with cheese. Wine and crackers. On e all of the goodies were gone I then would have plenty of room to take out the linen napkins and fix a comfy bed for my mouse from the house of mouse. I would fix a fluffy pillow and prepare the basket as my painterly mouse' new home.
    That is exactly how I would celebrate with the house of mouse. Lisa jane

    1. The mice ADORE picnics! They race over and lead everyone out into the garden to enjoy the beautiful sunny weather and nibble on your delicious goodies! Some of them are getting very full now so they quietly curl up on the fluffy pillow to have a snooze.

  13. Congrats Anna and Naomi!

  19. Congratulations! I would celebrate by bringing 2000 tiny cannoli (because after all, they are filled with heavenly sweet ricotta cheese...and chocolate chips!) I would also bring many tiny cupcakes and cookies, maybe some s'mores...lemonade and punch (maybe a little spiked!) and party hats and stripey scarves for everyone. And I would transport it all in a mouse-sized food truck called Nibbles & Gobbles To Go. :)

    1. The mice are so happy to see you arrive with all your delicious treats. Some of the braver boy mice want to have a go sitting in the driving seat of your food truck, they like blasting the horn at everyone!

  20. I'd bring cheese that I made myself in my own kitchen! Some yummy mozzarella or havarti dill. Cheese making is lots of fun, a wonderful combination of food and science. And I'd make sure there was enough for all the mice!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. The mice are utterly fascinated by the idea of making their own cheese. Of course Chris the Chef mouse thinks he knows all about it already, but the other mice are happy to see that even he has a few things to learn yet about cooking. They think your home-made cheese is simply divine!

  21. wow,
    i would like to bring chips! i hope they like chips because i like cheesy chips!

    1. Cheesy chips! Perfect for our nibbly mice! They leap right into the bowl and come out covered in cheesy flavouring, I can see some of the mice now licking their paws and fur in delight. Delicious!

  22. congrats guys,all the mice are amazing little characters :)
    I'd bring my violin with me to the party, to help you all celebrate with a bit of music to dance to, and perhaps some of the musician mice can join in to really get the party going!

  24. Wow! A very impressive milestone- congrats!!

    I'll bring the party games- a tiny twister made from a napkin and a little limbo set with adjustable cocktail sticks :-)

  25. Anna, I would bring my husband! We were in Holland for the first time ever last month and we were going to drive to Amsterdam but didn't have time. Next year, we are going there. So perhaps then we can visit you and see where all those mice are born. If you had a shop I would do just that.

    PS My mice are getting lonely, I think they need a new friend :)

  26. I don't know about the mice where you are, but the ones in my neck of the woods do love getting a peanut butter treat, so I have to say I'd bring along some of my homemade peanut butter fudge...I mean, if they like the PB to start, why wouldn't they love it mixed with sugar?!?! I know we all would! Congrats on your 2000th sale! I just adore all of your wonderful little mice!!

    ReplyDelete
  27. I would just bring myself because "the party don't start til I walk in"

    ReplyDelete
  28. Hello there! This sounds like a fantastic reason to celebrate!

    I'd bring my pet rats to work as servers and barstaff. They're always happy to help, although the odd nibble may disappear their way too! And to help celebrate they'll learn to sing just like the mice from Bagpuss.

    Hope you all have a wonderful time!

  29. How about felt party hats that look like cheese?!

    Congrats by the way! Great achievement:D

  32. I would have to bring my sons Reuben & Finley (age 2years & 3weeks)because Reuben is loving looking at all the 'squeeek squeeeks' as he is calling them!

  36. Mouse-shaped jelly (you NEED jelly), a game of mouse trap, a cheese cake - that's a cheesecake, shaped like a wedge of cheese - a cat detection system (just in case someone wants to crash the party!) a disco ball and some jokes. Probably from penguin wrappers. No need for music, we already have the Beatles!

    I'll omit the mouse costumes for now ;P
