This mouse was a present for my father's birthday. An unexpected surprise! As always, Anna has done a perfect and completely in-depth work based on the model we sent her. (She also added some chocolates so the mouse wouldn't starve during the journey :P) We will look forward to getting more mice from you! ^__^

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 fill out my custom order form which you can find here: https://thehouseofmouse.typeform.com/to/xYfNmZ or send me a message via Etsy. Then I will send you a no-obligation design brief and quote.

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. All my old designs are available to view in The Mouse Hole Library on my website thehouseofmouse.co.uk/mouse-hole

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 add your ideas to this blog post in the comments! http://thehouseofmouse.co.uk/design-ideas-for-artisan-mice/
Or, if you would like me to make it for you right away please fill out this custom order form https://thehouseofmouse.typeform.com/to/xYfNmZ and I'll be happy to get back to you with a design brief and quote
