- I watched my 2.5 year old son complete his first term of baby gym. He recieved a medal and was so proud of himself for learning how to do a forward roll (with a little help from me)
- The House of Mouse greetings card section swelled to include lots more designs.
- Seeing the response this photograph of our stock go viral on Facebook. Bringing lots of new fans and comments.
- Working on new custom orders I'm finding myself really enjoying the challenging designs again.
Wishing you a happy week ahead!

When I got the request for this custom mouse, I must admit I was a little apprehensive. After all Queen Elizabeth the First lived in a time of grand and intricate costumes! I knew it was going to be a challenge. I have to admit that I really enjoyed making her, the challenge was lovely too. I have been sewing mice for 4 and a half years and sometimes it can get a little repetitive, but this mouse really brought back the joy of a challenging piece for me. I hope you like her as much as her new owner does.
If you would like to order your own Queen Elizabeth I Mouse, please contact me for a price.

After a break from making custom orders it has been so nice to get back into them again. This little guy is for a pilot captain who will be turning 70 later this month. I LOVED making him and adding all the little details. The buyer has been kind enough to give me permission to make him a regular in our store,we won't have any in stock for a couple more weeks but if you would like one I can make a reservation for you.

Today Naomi did the very important job of stock-checking at The House of Mouse. At this time of year that's a tricky job because I have been stocking up like mad since last Christmas. As you can see her whole house is overrun with our little mice and their friends. Here they all our laid out on her table! Below you can see them all stored away cosy and safe in their labelled boxes.
