  4. Haven't visited in a while but I must say, you have done your best work of late (in my humble opinion). I've looked at the creations since you announced your book was out. They are wonderfully inventive. How did you suspend the little mouse in "Leapfrog"? And Mamma with her purse and the little one holding her tail. So adorable.

    How is your book faring?

  7. Awe, welcome to the new little ones!

    Does that mean you used up all the ones in the jars?

    What do you do with each diorama and mouse when you're done? I'd have thought that you re-use them. Or do you keep the set as a whole somewhere?

    PS: I know you don't sell your mice but if you have "expired/retired" mice I say ebay them. I'd love one. You could even include a picture of it in one of your settings and sign it. - Extra easy money on the side :)

    (And did I mention I want a mouse? ;) )

  8. I would love to own one of your mice. How do I go about doing this? My book just arrived and I'm eager to peruse it with joy.

  9. Greetings, fellow Mouselandians, and thank you for your many encouraging comments. A few answers:

    California Girl: I suspended the leapfrogger on a wire which I then photoshopped out. I usually touch up the photos for color and errant whiskers, but that's all. The book is doing pretty well, thanks!

    Noisy Quiet: I actually did finally empty out my jars of mice...I sometimes reuse them but lately have been preserving the blog scenes in little plexiglass boxes, which are rapidly stacking up in my studio while I decide what to do with them. Your suggestion of ebay is one thing I'm considering, if I can bring myself to part with them. The other possibility is to collect enough of them to open Maggie's Mouse Museum!

    Christine: See above. I will keep you posted if and when I decide to sell them. In the meantime, I'm so glad you have my book, and I hope you like it!

    Thanks to you all,
    Maggie

  11. I Love them! And I think the term for plural mice MUST be a "Mess of Mice"! (Hee Hee)

  14. Oh Maggie, I want your book and I love, love love your mouses! I agree with the comments above about selling or making some mice to sell. I would definitely pay top price for one! Keep us posted if that happens! Thanks!!

  17. Hi! This is my first time visiting and I am completely enchanted with your sweet mouses!

    If you do decide to part with some of them, I could definitely give one or two a wonderful, loving home. :o)
