I'm so happy House of Mouse is back - bestest shop on Etsy! Great conversations, fabulous mice and crazy quick shipping!
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 love to make custom mice! Please fill out this custom order form https://thehouseofmouse.typeform.com/to/xYfNmZ or contact me and I'll be happy to get back to you with a design brief and quote. Please note: custom orders are time consuming and this is reflected in their price.
My order is a gift. Can you include a message with the parcel?
Yes that's no problem! 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).
What is the difference between Standing and Hanging Ornament?
Standing Ornament - Ornament as pictured
Hanging Ornament - With loop of cotton added to the mouse's head to hang on a Christmas 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.
