A day in the craft room

What I thought was going to be a warmer day turned out to be wrong. I woke to find raindrops on the window. The temps were up to 31 but it wasn't long before it started snowing again. Since I wasn't going anywhere I headed for the craft room which also doubles as the computer room.

I spent a lot of time surfing the web, I did a little bit of shopping and spent my Christmas money and I finished off another sock mouse. This one is going to be going to live with Ginny.

This one is less seasonal than the first one and he's got a little wedge of cheese in his little mouse hands



I did a little editing too. This was a close up of Mr. Mousey

When I set out to do one that could sit out other times besides Christmas I knew I had to replace the candy cane and thought cheese would be perfect. I started cutting different materials and it just wasn't working the way I wanted it to. Then I saw the sponge laying on the end of my table and I had an UH HUH moment and knew that was the perfect thing to use for cheese. I've also got some little witches hats and plan on doing a Halloween version. I'm thinking there are other mice in the making as well just not sure what they will be just yet.

Oh I love the cheese! And yes, the mice are versatile, you can dress them up any which way and they will be brilliant! As clever as you are, I bet there will be many more mice.

He is adorable! I like a cute "winter" decoration to keep out after the holidays. I guess he is is a "January Mouse", right?

Your mouse is cute. We have learned that our mouse loves banana. No more leaving them out on the counter!
