Note from shop owner SHOP CLOSED (Not forever)... Hello lovely people. This is an emotional message to write to you all. Those of you who have been following my facebook page a while will know that life got very real for my family and I this year. So real in fact that we have reached the point where we need more financial stability than my beloved The House of Mouse can bring us.

Starting in 2019 I'm enrolling in a 1 year course which will give me the skills I need to find a stable and secure salary to support my family. I'm excited about the course and a chance at new learning, but realistically I know I'm not going to be able to dedicate any time to The House of Mouse while I study. I plan to reopen once the intensive study is complete, I've found some gainful employment and figured out how to balance everything again! The mice will always be a part of my life 🐁

About

The House of Mouse - Tails of Joy

Everyone deserves to have more in their life to smile about.

My mice are experts at creating smiles.

I am Anna, the artist behind these joyful artisan felt mice.

My Granny was a mouse maker, and just like her I am on a mission to let more joy into your life.

I want my creations to speak to your soul, light you up and inspire you with pure delight.

Because I believe that the things that make you happy are what make your life so unique.

I put hours of loving attention into the tiniest details, to bring these beautifully intricate, utterly adorable felt mice to life, so they can light up your day in an instant.

As a child I struggled with reading and writing.

After years of being treated as “educationally sub-normal” by my teachers, I was finally diagnosed with dyslexia.

A condition that meant my brain is far from stupid, it simply has a different way of learning.

Dyslexia also gave me a huge gift.

Like blindness results in extraordinary hearing, it gifted me with an intense passion and talent for creativity.

Though I struggled to learn in a conventional school setting, I excelled at all things creative.

Throughout my life creativity has been my source of joy.
Joy is my refuge from the struggles of life.

I joined every craft class I could find outside of school – I studied drawing, painting, ceramics, sewing and textiles.

I built up a confidence that I could learn any technique I put my mind to.

Soon I had added photography, graphic design and sculpture to my skills at art school.

I was in my element learning new techniques and trying out different materials.

I use many of these skills, combined with loving attention to the tiniest details to bring these beautifully intricate, utterly adorable felt mice to life, so they can light up your day in an instant.

Frequently asked questions
Can you alter an existing design?

Yes, that's no problem. If it is a small change you need (to change clothing colour, for example) there is no extra cost. If the change is more time consuming this will increase the total cost. Contact me with your ideas and I'll be happy to give you a free, no obligation quote.

Do you do custom designs?

Yes! I adore making unique custom mice. If you are interested in this service please contact me with your request.

Please be aware that I dedicate much care and attention to custom orders, so that you get exactly what you want, and this extra time taken is reflected in the price.

My order is a gift. Can you include a message with the parcel?

Yes! Include your message in the notes during checkout and I'll put it on a card for you.

What is included with my order?

Each mouse comes with a signed and embossed Certificate of Authenticity and is carefully placed in a gift box. Optional gift wrapping is also available (choose the gift wrap option during checkout).

I don't see the option for hanging ornaments any more, can I still get mine to hang?

Yes. Please let me know in the "Message to The House of Mouse" during checkout and I will be happy to add a loop of cotton to your order so you can hang it on a tree or similar.

How long will it take to send my order?

Currently all mice are made to order. My turnaround times vary depending on how many orders I have. During quiet periods mice are ready within a couple of days. At busy times such as the Christmas rush it can take a few weeks for your order to be ready to send. Please click the "shipping" tab near the top of the page to see my current turnaround times. It's always best to order early to avoid disappointment.

Do you have any coupon codes?

Savings codes, special offers and sales are available to my newsletter subscribers. Subscribe here http://eepurl.com/N8vj

I wanted a design I don't see in the shop any more. Can I still get one?

Yes! Send me a message and I'll be happy to create a special listing for you.

Why are your shipping prices so high for countries outside Europe?

Unfortunately shipping costs in The Netherlands are very high, especially for international packages. I have researched all the options extensively and these prices are the best I can find that include tracking and insurance. The shipping cost is a fixed rate no matter how many you order. So if you have a friend who would also like a mouse you can share the shipping charge between you.

I have an idea for a mouse design you could make!

Wonderful! I would love to read it! Feel free to send me your ideas :)
