I Have a Mouse

I am not afraid of mice. My little brother had mice and rats as pets. I would hold them, feed them, all that sort of thing. There is just something about a mouse scurrying across the kitchen floor that sends me screaming like a little girl down the hall way. After the black flash of a mouse disappeared under the stove the other day I got my heart rate in check and my mind churning. Mice, mouse holes, The Borrowers, under floor, behind wall worlds...then this is what happened next:

Rolled out some brown polymer clay

Set the pasta maker on the thinnest setting and rolled out some black

Put it together and trimmed the edges added some eyes (not in pic)

Viola a mouse hole...and baseboard cleaning day.

The holes don't just have to be for mice.

Watching the front door. Why yes the porch is sinking.

Eyes on the coffee pot. My kind of girl.
Now that I have shown you how I make them if you like them but don't want to make it yourself check out my Etsy shop http://www.etsy.com/shop/TheHouseofRandom?ref=si_shop and "request custom item" I can make them any size or shape. Just eyes will start at $5.00 and go up depending on size. The people will cost a little more but how cute would it be to have a mini doppelganger family living in your walls?

Way too cute...what a great idea. I LOVE it! If I could afford it, we'd have a whole family of borrowers living here. I'm from the Etsy group and not sure if my blog address shows up when I post the comment so if not, it is www.kellyscrafts-kellyscrafts.blogspot.com. Hope to see you there.
