For the Love of Cute - Cottonmonster

I'll freely admit I have a monster obsession. And though many of you might disagree, I think monsters and cute together make a brilliant combination. I have loved so many awesome monsters! A new discovery for me has been this Etsy shop cottonmonster. I adore the creepy eyes, unsymmetrical limbs and sticky-outy-teeth.

Your photographs must be high quality to be considered. We only feature handmade.

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.

For the Love of Cute - Felted Cat Beds

Every time I see these cat beds by vaivanat I get a warm fuzzy cozy feeling and start wishing they made these in human sizes. Better yet, I wish I was a cat! *goes in search of warm place to nap*

Olive and Vince Giveaway

Naomi and Nat over at Olive & Vince are having another giveaway! This time, you could WIN one of these awesome toddler arts and crafts smocks worth £20.

Five key features of our
100% cotton “shower proof” smocks
★ Elasticated three quarter length sleeves - clothing is kept tucked out of the way avoiding damp, uncomfortable cuffs.
★ A generous overall length so that laps are kept covered when seated.
★ The whole torso is covered from back to front without any gaps for yuck to sneak through.
★ Secured at the back of the neck with a substantial strip of velcro for quick and easy release when it’s time to clear up.
★ A nice high neck helps to prevent anything from dripping or slipping downwardly.

To enter, just click "like" on the Olive & Vince Facebook page and write your name in a comment on this blog post! For up to five extra entries, get your friends to "like" Olive & Vince on Facebook too and write their name AND your name in a comment on this blog post so that their vote for you can be verified and counted.

Etsy Germany Press Day

Our little Wedding mice were included in the Etsy German Press day earlier last month. We were so thrilled to have been invited to lend mice for this occasion. The stunning photographs on the EtsyDE facebook page really capture the beauty of a handmade wedding.

The House of Mouse Website Launch with discount code

Apologies that the blog has been so quiet lately. I have been quietly working in the background building our own website www.thehouseofmouse.co.uk We have owned the domain for years and had a couple of disasters setting up the site with web developers. I was never satisfied with the result as I wanted more control over design and content. A few months ago I discovered a service built specifically for our needs! Building it took a loooong time but I am thrilled to announce that I have finally completed it. If you spot any spelling mistakes or other errors please do let me know :) 

To celebrate the launch of our new website, 
we are offering you 10% off EVERYTHING in our store. 
Use the coupon code "THOMLNCH
during checkout to receive your discount. 

This code is only valid at www.thehouseofmouse.co.uk
